Are you looking for a simple and effective way to lose weight? If yes, then we’re here to help. Though weight loss is not an easy task, eating food packed with nutritious and essential high-fibre foods help facilitate smooth bowel movements by giving the stool more volume, which aids in digestion. This helps in weight loss. Also, eating fibre-rich foods provides satiety, preventing unexpected hunger pangs. So, if losing weight has been on your mind lately, you need to include more fibre-rich foods in your diet. Additionally, eating them for breakfast may increase your metabolism and energy levels, all of which are critical for a healthy weight loss. Here are some of the best high-fibre breakfast recipes for weight loss.

How eating high-fibre breakfast recipes aid in weight loss?

“Fibre is derived from foods of plant origin. It is also called ‘roughage’. It cannot be broken down by the digestive enzymes and therefore not absorbed by the body as it passes through the stomach and intestine. Fibre is not an essential nutrient, but it does play an important role in losing weight. Moreover, fibre slowly moves through your body, slowing down digestion and giving you a fuller feeling in your stomach. As a result, you inherently eat less and avoid overindulging. Plus, fruits and vegetables high in fibre have a low calorie content by nature, which may help with weight loss, , says nutritionist Deepti Khatuja.

According to a study published in the Journal of Nutrition, those who followed a calorie-restricted diet and consumed more fibre lost more weight than those who consumed less.
