Lots of people are kicking off the new year by setting a goal to lose weigh in 2019. Here are 3 things you should avoid in the morning to help you out!

Losing weight is already tough and most people will agree that having a good breakfast is key to maintaining a healthy lifestyle....BUT there are some things you should avoid in the morning.

The website eatthis.com has come up with some breakfast items you should avoid if you are trying to lose weight.

1.  Sugary cereal.  Even the ones that look healthy can have a lot of sugar.  Like a bowl of Cracklin' Oat Bran has 15 grams of sugar, compared to 11 grams in Frosted Flakes.

2.  Waffles with syrup.  It's basically sugar on sugar with almost no fiber.  The fat in the butter actually slows down the absorption of sugar in your body.  But obviously butter isn't a health food either.

3.  A glass of orange juice.  It's basically straight sugar.  And most brands are processed at a really high temperature, which kills a lot of the nutrients.

If you are also looking at trying to diet while eating healthy, here is a diet that I have tried a couple of times and every time I was able to drop 4-6 pounds while on it.

It is called the Military Diet and basically gives you an outline on how to cut your calorie intake to around 1200 calories for three days a week.
