Other breakfast tips to lose weight-
1. Not adding enough protein
Protein is an essential part of a weight loss diet. It keeps you full for longer and makes you consume fewer calories. You can add protein-rich sources like eggs, nuts or seeds to your breakfast.
2. Consuming a sugar-loaded breakfast
Added sugar makes you gain weight and add extra calories to your meals. Do not consume sugar-loaded food items for breakfast.
3. Drinking juice
Juices are deprived of fibre. Drinking juice for breakfast can make you feel hungry sometime after the meal. Also, packed juices are loaded with added sugar and very few nutrients.
4. Consuming caffeine
