Senior care services can assist older adults with grocery shopping and meal preparation if they need to lose weight. Being obese later in life increases the risk for a variety of more serious health conditions including diabetes, arthritis, stroke and heart attack.

A big component of weight loss is sticking to a nutritious diet filled with healthy foods. According to Women's Health magazine, these are some of the best breakfasts that can be eaten to assist with weight loss:

Include oat bran: Studies have found that oat bran has a key ingredient of fiber, which means it helps people stay fuller for longer and avoid cravings throughout the day. Oat bran can be added to muffins, yogurt and smoothies.

Oatmeal: A staple breakfast item is oatmeal, but research has shown that because of the fiber in this meal, people are less hungry after eating a bowl of oatmeal and feel more satisfied afterward.

Toast with peanut butter: This is easy to make, and reports have noted that people who ate peanut butter in the morning had higher levels of peptide YY, which is a hormone that helps people feel full. Just remember to eat peanut butter in moderation because it packs about 190 calories per two tablespoons, said the magazine
