5 Breakfast Habits to Live Like the World's Oldest People

Don't eat after you're full.

This one seems like a no-brainer, but sometimes it can be hard to pass up an extra serving of food if you're eating a really delicious meal, even if you already feel full. 

Make breakfast your largest meal.

You've definitely heard it before: breakfast is the most important meal of the day. People who live in the Blue Zones, who are 10 times more likely to live to 100 than residents of the United States, take that to heart.

Eat a primarily plant-based breakfast.

The diet consists of eating mostly, or entirely, foods made from plants, which still leaves plenty of options for breakfast, like whole-wheat pancakes or sheet-pan veggies.

Don't eat excess sugar.

It's hard to cut out sugar entirely, as it's naturally found in many foods, including an abundance of fruits.

Celebrate instead of restrict.

For the most part, residents in the world's Blue Zones follow very healthy diets, but that's not because they feel they're being forced to follow a certain diet, or because they're restricting themselves from eating what they really want.

When you're trying to emulate the world's oldest people while making breakfast, you should use ingredients that you enjoy in moderation, and enjoy your breakfast rather than being concerned about what diet you should be following.
