Butter toast

Butter toast is among the worst breakfast options, that won’t sustain you for any lasting amount of time due to its lack of protein. Most of the calories in buttered toast come from the carbs in the bread and the fat from the butter, which only add to your weight

Processed meats

Breakfast sausages, salamis, ham, and bacon are lip-smacking breakfasts, but all of them are packed with preservatives, chemicals, and loads of salt, which increases blood pressure.

They also contain additives like nitrites, which may increase your risk of certain cancers and of course, your weight Credit: Times Network


Despite being sold as healthy and nutritious, breakfast cereals are loaded with sugar, and very low in protein. They rapidly increase your blood sugar levels and make you gain oodles of weight

Milk coffee

Flavoured coffees like mochas, frappes, or macchiatos can be a sweet fix full of taste yet are super unhealthy and only cause weight gain. Having these for breakfast may quickly spike your blood sugar levels

Waffles are the most-unhealthy start to your mornings. Despite being delicious, waffles are comfort foods made with refined flour, butter, and sugar, topped with high-calorie syrups and creams, which are pure sugar. So, while they can fill you up quickly, they won’t keep you full for long, increasing cravings and eventually leading to weight gain

Pancakes, made with flour, sugar, butter, sugar, and eggs are high in calories, fat, and sugar, yet lacking in protein and fiber

Muffins are widely considered to be a somewhat healthy choice for breakfast, but despite containing healthy ingredients like bran, oats, apples, or blueberries, they are made with refined white flour, oil, and loads of sugar, offering little in the way of protein or fibre

Fruit juice

Even though you might think that fruit juice is healthier than drinking sugary sodas or sweetened teas, it is just not true. While fruit juice contains nutrients and antioxidants, they are high in sugar and low in the fibre found in whole fruits and only adds to unhealthy weight

Aloo puri

Yummy and delicious as the dish may sound but having aloo puri for breakfast would only induce sleep and make you gain unhealthy weight, since starting your day with carb-loaded potatoes and fried puris is definitely a bad idea
