Do you usually eat a light breakfast or a big breakfast? Do you usually cook breakfast or stick with more convenient foods like cereal, bagels, toast, etc?




----------------------------

Me, I have taken to cooking breakfast and having a much bigger breakfast than I used to eat and I really think it has helped me. I don't find myself going crazy at lunch wanting to pig out. I try to include a lot of protein in my breakfast now too.

I can't eat a big meal anymore, ever. I eat 5-6 medium size meals, at least 2-3 servings of food. If I eat more then that I feel sick.

Sometimes I'll make an egg with a whole wheat english muffin. Sometimes a bowl of oatmeal or cereal. Sometimes just coffee.

It really depends on what the day holds for me.. If I keep myself busy and out of the house I won't eat (out of sight out of mind I guess)
During the week its ususally one of the following: 1/2 bagel, coffee, cereal, banana, egg ham and cheese sandwich/bagel, scram egg with white toast. On Sunday we usually go out to eat, but even then it's usually bacon, white toast with egg or omelet with bacon and cheese.

I keep writing cheese.. I am seeing that i need to take out the cheese. LOL.

Are you saying you need to "cut the cheese"? Sorry, I couldn't resist. LOL

Actually, I'm a big cheese person, too. I use fat free grated cheddar or slices most of the time and the 2% if I can't find fat free. Also, some cheeses are naturally low fat, so switch to lower fat options if you want to keep your cheese and cut the fat.

I always have cereal these days. I used to actually cook, like waffles or eggs & toast but I just don't have the time or energy anymore. I bought bagels this week so I should remember to have one tomorrow!

Interestingly enough Teresa, I recently read that in a study that was conducted by some health/medical guru of some sorts (cant' recall the org. or name.. sorry).... the group of people that ate a bigger breakfast (still dieting of coarse) had better weight loss than those that were eating lower calorie breakfast.... while all the groups continued to maintain the exact total calorie intake for the day.

I'll see if i can find that article on-line.. might help some of the ladies rethink about skipping breakfast
