Eating breakfast

By September 24, 2012 - 9:51pm

You must eat breakfast if you want to lose weight, and make sure it includes lean protein. Eating lean protein at breakfast is one of the most important things you can do to fell less hungry.

Even if you don’t feel hungry in the morning, eat breakfast anyway. It may be a challenge, but this is something you can do. Breakfast will help you prevent hunger later on. It will reduce your appetite and cravings and help you stick with your eating plan all day long.
I start my day off with good breakfast. For me it means non-starchy vegetable, fresh low-sugar fruit, lean protein, whole grain bread, and healthy fats (I take Omega 3 supplement).

This is my average day, but I generally eat the same things from day to day:

blueberries, blackberries, or apple, 1 slice of dry, 100% whole-grain toasted bread with
1 slice of 99% fat free turkey breast,1 fresh tomato hot tea (no milk, no sugar).
As you can see it is not a typical "breakfast foods". The protein consumption, when eaten as part of the daily first meal reduces my appetite throughout the day. I also believe that it jump-starts my metabolism and sets my body in the optimal fat-burning state.

Eating like this was initially a little challenging, but I got used to it. It has become a part of my eating strategy that caused me to lose 91 pounds without feeling hungry. I eat breakfast every day.

Thanks for sharing. When I try those skimpy meals like yogurt and/or shakes, they leave me hungry. I have noticed that when I add something more solid such as wheat toast and a turkey sausage with a piece of fruit I am more satisfied.
