On today’s episode of Live Lean TV, I’m sharing the 8 worst breakfast foods for weight loss.
How many of these foods are you eating for breakfast?
Unfortunately, we’ve been brainwashed by food marketers into believing only certain foods are classified as “breakfast foods”.
For example, in the comment section below, tell me what is the first type of food that comes to mind, when you hear the word breakfast?
Here is the best breakfast for weight loss.
I’d be willing to bet most of the breakfast foods that initially come to your mind, are processed and refined carbohydrates, that are filled with nasty fattening ingredients.
But before I share the 8 worst breakfast foods for weight loss, I always share the different types of breakfast that I eat every morning on my second YouTube channel called Brad Gouthro TV.
I post “day in the life” style daily vlogs that includes:
For example, in this vlog, I showed my breakfast and how I stay active on my active recovery days.

All right, here are the 8 worst breakfast foods for weight loss, in random order, because they’re all bad.
Let’s do this.
Think about it.
How else do you think this “fresh” food can last so long on store shelves?
Here is something else to think about.
Why do you think restaurants give you free bread at the beginning of your meal?
I’ll give you the answer.
It’s because eating bread makes you more hungry and thirsty.
Next time you’re eating bread, just look at the amount of sodium in it.
With all this said, does bread sound like a food you want to start your day off with?
On top of that, think about what you typically put on you bread.
This leads me to worst breakfast food for weight loss number two.
Jelly and jam are loaded with sugar, with no fiber to slow down the spike in blood sugar.
Say hello to energy crashes, more hunger, and binge cravings.
When it comes to peanut butter, most conventional types are essentially icing sugar with fattening oils.
It’s just a terrible combination.
It’s time to bring in the science experiments.
Most cereals are filled with fattening sugars, chemicals, preservatives, artificial flavors, and coloring.
If that wasn’t bad enough, consuming conventional cereals can cause sugar crashes from the consumption of all the refined carbohydrates.
Do you see that there is a little bit of a pattern going on with all of these 8 worst breakfast foods for weight loss?
Don’t fall for the “high in protein” marketing hype on the front of the food label.
Always look at the ingredients list, as it’s usually high in crappy protein.
I’ll pretty much repeat what I said for all the other 8 worst breakfast foods for weight loss.
These conventional flour based pancakes and waffles are filled with hunger inducing sugars.
Plus, most people top the pancakes and waffles off with more blood sugar spiking cheap forms of fake maple syrup.
This is just causing an absolute disaster zone with your hormones.
Try this healthy and delicious sweet potato protein pancakes recipe.
What are you, 8 years old?
When it comes to breakfast bars, go back and read what I said about worst breakfast food for weight loss number 1.
Since all the fiber has been removed, fruit juice is essentially a glass a sugar water.
If you want fruit juice, just eat the fruit.
When it comes to eating yogurt, always look at the ingredients list.
Many times yogurt is loaded with sugars and other crap.
Always read the nutrition facts label.
Remember, the first foods and drinks you put in your mouth, sets up your day to either turn on the fat burning switch or the fat storing switch.
Whenever the fat storing switch is on, this means the fat burning switch is off.
I’ve said it a million times, it’s all about managing your body’s hormones.
Focus on eating real food.
If you want to keep your fat burning switch turned on, go pick up a copy of my Eat Clean, Live Lean Cookbook, with over 200 paleo approved fat burning meals that keep you burning stored fat for energy, not sugar.
That is a huge difference.
It’s amazing how tasty snacks and meals can be when you know how to use all real healthy ingredients.
I pity those “dieters” ruining their sustainable chances of Living Lean by eating boring foods.
