 Eating Fruits, Dairy, Cereal: The Best Way to Start Your Day

Breakfast is the most important meal of the day. "Do not skip breakfast" is one of the classiest, no-fail rules of living healthy and losing weight.

Instead of asking a nutritionist whose job it is to eat healthy, researchers decided to ask regular, healthy weight people what their secret was.

A research team from the Cornell Food & Brand Lab created an online Slim By Design registry to find out characteristics and behaviors of people with a healthy weight, who also don't struggle with weight problems.

They recruited 147 people — 118 female — and asked them about their breakfast patterns. The main question they wanted answered was, " On an average day, what would you have for breakfast?"

The study showed that the most common breakfast items consumed by slim people were fruits (51%), dairy (41%), cold cereal / granola (33%), bread (32%), eggs (31%), hot cereal (29%), coffee (26%). Only 4% of participants indicated that they didn't eat breakfast.

These healthy morning meals aren't anything out of the ordinary: No fancy Paleo recipes or expensive juices appeared in the findings.

"One important take away from this study is that a very high rate of slim people actually eat breakfast instead of skipping, which is consistent with previous research on the importance of breakfast," explains lead author Anna-Leena Vuorinen.

But what stands out is that they not only ate breakfast, but that they ate healthful foods like fruits and vegetables. Also, egg consumption was higher than we expected.
