Interestingly, when it comes to losing weight, the type of foods you eat at breakfast matters too.

Eat more fruit

A great way you can eat more but still lose weight is to eat more fruit.

By eating fruit before your meal you are less likely to overindulge and eat too much during your meal.

In addition to this, eating fruit is great for losing weight because it is high in fiber. fiber is important if you want to lose weight because it helps to keep you fuller for longer and it also helps to reduce the amount of fats your body can absorb.

If you would like to build more muscle mass in order to lose weight you should eat before and after your workout too as eating before exercise helps to fuel your body and will encourage muscle growth.

These whole grain foods also help you to maintain your blood sugar levels, which should help you to avoid reaching for quick-fix energy snacks such as chocolate bars.

More support for eating whole grains comes from the Harvard School of Public Health, which found that participants who ate more whole grains gained less weight over a twenty year study than those people who ate less whole grains.
