Science and breakfast are often contradictory. On one hand, the food industry made breakfast out to be the most important meal of the day despite the fact that skipping it doesn’t really have bad consequences. On the other hand, a quality, hearty breakfast can improve your mood and prevent depression. It looks like the trick is to know what to eat and what not to eat for breakfast.

Bearing that in mind, today at Business Magazine, we’ve looked into what foods are best to avoid eating before 10 AM to stay both healthy and fit, and the reasons behind this.

1. Buttered toast

Instead: Spread peanut butter over your toast. This study found that peanuts and pure peanut butter can help you feel less hungry during the day because it increases the production of peptide YY, a hormone that regulates hunger, making it a great breakfast.

2. Small flakes and breakfast cereals

Instead: Eat sugar-free, homemade oatmeal that contains a healthy amount of fiber and almost no sugar. Reducing your sugar intake in the morning can help you avoid that midmorning tired feeling. If you’re eating sugar-coated flakes anyway, try buying bigger flakes.

Instead: Make them at home and opt for wholemeal flour or check nutritional values for high-fiber pancakes. You can also simply replace them for some wholemeal toast.

4. Low-fat yogurt

5. Grab-and-go fruit juice

Instead: Eat regular fruit. It’s a great way to activate your digestive system in the morning and prepare it for higher calorie intake in later meals.

6. FODMAPs

Apples, garlic, pears, beans, and peaches all contain fermentable oligosaccharides, disaccharides, monosaccharides, and polyols or FODMAPs. They are carbohydrates that people are sensitive to because they’re more difficult to digest than others, which leads to fermentation in the stomach and intestines, hence that bloated feeling. They’re not to be avoided but should ideally be eaten later in the morning once your digestive system is more active.

Instead: Eat small quantities of these foods in combination with a healthy amount of fat and protein to help you digest them.
