What should I eat for breakfast?

Sunday, March 06, 2011

I...
a. Always wake up starving.
b. Am hungry for lunch by 11 a.m.
c. Don't really eat breakfast at all.

If you answered a - First, Yay, you! Hunger pangs in the morning signal that you didn't overeat the previous night. Second, fuel up with a filling combo of fat, protein and fiber-rich carbs. Try: an egg and a slice of reduced-fat cheese on a whole-grain English muffin, plus a small pear.

If you answered b - Quit the no-carb-left-behind club. Morning protein eaters ate 130 fewer calories at lunch, a study from the University of Kansas Medical Center finds. Try protein-packed nuts (yes, for breakfast): Top whole-wheat toast with nut butter, or look for a fruit-and-nut bar with at least 4 grams of protein.

If you answered c - Could you be convinced if you knew that studies show eating breakfast can make you thinner, healthier and ever happier? One strategy: Forgo traditional breakfast foods and have what you love. (Last night's stir-fry, perhaps?)

    I've been having whole wheat toast in the mornings but the whole grain English muffin sounds great. I usually have a good healthy breakfast and then I'm fine till lunch time. I really get a craving for something around 2:30 - 3:00 in the afternoon so I try to have some fruit or one of those South Beach protein power bars handy. That usually gets me through till supper time.

BREAK THE BINGE CYCLE NOW

Saturday, March 05, 2011

Being overweight or obese pose risks to almost every part of your body, including your brain and your heart. To break an overeating habit, you need to focus more, not less, on your food. People who eat from a plate while sitting at a table actually eat 30% less than those who grab-and-go.

Also, slow down your eating, to give your brain time to recognize your stomach is full. Slowing down can help you eat about 70 calories less per meal which can add up to several hundred calories per day.

    thanks for the reminder. Lots of my calories are hit and run. I should/will get into the habit of sitting at the table while eating and no inbetween snacks.

    Great hint. Now that I am retired I have more time, but when I was working as a nurse I remember eating rapidly just to get in some food so I could get back to the floor and get my work done.
