Carbohydrates hold water in your body, which may make your belly bloat.

Plus, high-carb, high-sugar breakfast foods like bagels or cereal might fill you up initially, but you’ll probably end up searching for more food within an hour, says Alissa Rumsey, MS, RD, CDN, CSCS, spokesperson for the US-based Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics.

“Those digest pretty rapidly, and then your blood sugar spikes up and drops back down pretty quickly because they digest so fast,” she says.

That extra morning munching will likely add up to more calories and bloat than you would have had if you’d started with a more filling breakfast.
