6 ways your breakfast is making you gain weight: FOOD

  1. Parfaits

Where you go wrong: All that granola. It’s rich in whole grains, making it a healthy option, says Ginn-Meadow, but it can also pack unwanted calories and sugar. (Try these easy guilt-free granola recipes.)

The fix: Ginn-Meadow suggests sticking with a 1/4 cup or less of granola, and maintaining a 1/2 yogurt to 1/2 fruit ratio. “Treat it like sprinkles—it’s a fun topping.” Vandana Sheth, RDN, CDE, and spokesperson for the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics, suggests going savory instead of sweet. Her fave combo: Cucumbers, tomatoes, cumin, and cilantro plus Greek yogurt.
