The One Food You Should Eat Each Morning to Break Down Fat During the Day

There are a seemingly infinite amount of diet and health philosophies. One person swears by cutting out all carbs and taking on a completely ketogenic lifestyle. Another person assures you that carbs are healthy and necessary for maintaining balanced energy levels. Yet another person says that carbs are generally okay but gluten isn't. The point is that the world of wellness can be a confusing and hazy place, and it's been proven yet again by a new study.

The study comes from the University of Alabama at Birmingham, though it was published in the Journal of Nutrition. Researchers set out to discover how eating breakfasts with different nutrient contents affected weight and wellness in various individuals. What they found was surprising to say the least—eating a high-fat breakfast can actually stimulate the breakdown of fats that are already in the body. I know it sounds like a classic oxymoron, but apparently eating a high-fat breakfast is an effective way to reach and maintain a healthy weight. But there's a catch. It can't be just any fatty breakfast food. In fact, there's one particular type of breakfast food that researchers recommend eating.
