20 Immediate Changes That Will Improve Your Health

Eat carbs for breakfast! (the good carbs)

Long touted as the most important meal of the day, science has since proven the importance of eating breakfast every day, making people think twice about skipping out on it. That being said, it is equally imperative to consume the right foods for this meal; loading up on sugary, processed foods, or just treating it as an excuse to drink two cups of coffee instead of one is not the best way to start the day. Many people tend to stay away from carbs as well, thanks to the stigma created by popular diets.

Healthy options like fruit and eggs are good choices, but carbs (the good kind) are actually a strong breakfast recommendation by many nutritionists. By “good” carbs, we’re talking about complex ones such as whole grains, legumes, and nuts, all of which are high in fiber and take longer to break down in the body, meaning they keep you fuller and energized longer. Skip the white bread and opt in for whole grain toast instead to beat midmorning snack cravings and periods of lethargy.
