What is a healthy low-carbohydrate breakfast?

A healthy low-carbohydrate breakfast is a meal in which you eat a lot of healthy fats, proteins, vitamins, minerals and fiber, but few carbohydrates. A low-carbohydrate breakfast is nutritious .

The benefits of a healthy low-carbohydrate breakfast are:

In the short term :

Long term :

Many products contain carbohydrates. Also in products that you would not really expect (such as luncheon meat). This causes us to take in too many carbohydrates – often without realizing it.

According to the National Institute for Public Health and the Environment , we eat an average of 237 grams of carbohydrates per day in the Netherlands.

An excess of (bad) carbohydrates can lead to obesity (and thus fatigue, type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure and all kinds of other health problems).

Fortunately, the reverse is also true: with a healthy diet with the right amount of carbohydrates you take a step towards a lean, healthy and vital body every day. And that all starts with a low-carbohydrate breakfast.

Summary : With a low-carbohydrate breakfast you take a step every day towards a lean, energetic and healthy body.

Unhealthy products to avoid

Avoid these high-carb breakfast foods:

Pay particular attention to fruit juices. Even if it says “100% pure” on the label, the juice can still contain an awful lot of fruit sugars. For example, apple juice contains more carbohydrates than regular cola.

Don’t be afraid of all carbohydrates. You need carbohydrates to function properly. For example, your immune system works on glucose (a carbohydrate).

If you want to know more about ‘good’ and ‘bad’ carbohydrates, read my explanation and substantiation about the low- carbohydrate diet .

In short : Avoid bread and grain products, cornflakes and fruit juices from a pack.
