Losing weight is already tough and most people will agree that having a good breakfast is a 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.
