Low-Calorie Fruit Toast Recipe

fruit toast with ricotta and strawberries

When you’ve got a busy schedule, breakfast needs to be something quick and easy, as well as keep you feeling full until lunchtime.

Skipping breakfast is one of the worst things you can do when you’re following a weight loss plan – not only will it leave you feeling hungry mid-morning, but you’ll also be more likely to snack on unhealthy foods for a quick energy fix.

To avoid this pitfall, try to grab something that is rich in protein like eggs or low-fat dairy, as well as a good source of fibre, such as wholemeal bread or oats, which will help to keep your energy levels more balanced throughout the morning.

When you’re in the Maintenance phase of your weight loss journey, you can enjoy more conventional foods throughout the day, so why not start your day off with one of these healthy and nutritious breakfast ideas?

You can follow this up with an OPTIFAST Shake or Soup at lunchtime, then try one of our low-calorie recipe ideas for dinner. If you find yourself needing to snack, reach for one of our OPTIFAST Bars, which are high in protein and fibre to help to keep you feeling full.
