Healthy Breakfast for Weight Loss: Studies conducted have proved that intake of proteins is important in the first meal of the day, that is breakfast. Most of us are aware that a good intake of proteins can curb the pangs of hunger and also boost the metabolism. With a ‘full’ breakfast, there is no requirement to snack in-between meals. This tends to be unhealthy as most people choose snacks that are full of carbohydrates and unhealthy fats. Snaking is not ‘wrong’ but this needs to be healthy, like salads, fruits or even nuts.
Breakfast has been linked to good memory and concentration besides good health. This lowers the risks of getting diabetes and can also lower bad cholesterol.
Importance of Proteins for Breakfast:
Protein is considered to be the most important nutrient, especially when you are working towards losing some weight. This is due to body using more calories for the metabolization of proteins, as compared to fats or carbs. As mentioned, proteins can keep you full for a long period of time.
The amino acids required by your brains to remain alert throughout the day are provided by the intake of proteins during breakfast. This raises the levels of tyrosine in the brains. The dopamine and the norepinephrine produced, gives you the required energy to remain awake and also alert.
Breakfast Drinks for Loss of Weight:
Here are some drinks with the required proteins you can make for your daily breakfast.
Almond saffron Milkshake:
This milkshake works ideal for the intake of proteins and also for the required loss of weight. This is definitely a ‘healthy’ drink as it contains flax seeds, almonds, walnuts and a pinch of saffron. The saffron is not essential. You get almost 21 grams of proteins in 100 grams of almonds along with the same amount from walnuts.
Flaxseed has gained importance with the passing of time due to the benefit of the multiple nutrients present. This can get incorporated with ease in many recipes. You get 18 grams of proteins from only 100 grams of flax seeds. This recipe can be made with normal milk or almond milk if soy milk is not available. You can even add flax seeds in yogurt for the required proteins.
Symptoms of Protein Deficiency:
Here are some of the symptoms you suffer with when you have a deficiency of proteins.
- Loss of Muscle Masss
- Delayed Growth

Though proteins are healthy you need to ensure you do not overdo this. More than the required amount of proteins can lead to harming the kidneys, liver and also the bones. This ‘too much’ of proteins can lead to excessive calcium in the blood stream, bone loss, kidney stones and also liver complications.
Heavy diets can also lead to coronary disease. In case you are not too sure of how much proteins your body requires you need to consult a professional nutritionist or a dietician. It is advisable to get just ‘enough’ of proteins in your diet.
