Everyone knows that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but most people still insist on having unhealthy breakfasts to start their day. When you eat a well-balanced and nutritious breakfast, you’re giving your body the fuel and energy it needs to get through the morning. This is especially the case for those trying to lose weight.

“A good breakfast should be loaded with protein and fiber to keep your feeling full and focused and your metabolism revved to burn calories,” New York-based nutritionist Regina Fazzini tells SheFinds, who notes that those struggling with stubborn belly fat could potentially benefit from following an anti-inflammatory diet because of its looming effects on the body.
