I have GNC Women's Maximum Nutrition Shake. Basically just powder you mix with milk. (I used skim or 1%) and it gets me through the morning. I don't like big breakfasts and this seems to do the trick in getting your nutrients to fuel you.

Oatmeal cooked in the microwave. I add frozen raspberries and a tablespoon of honey, but you can add any berries, or mashed banana or applesauce. Even add cinnamon and raisins/dates. So many options! I have this almost every morning, it's so easy.

I like small baggie of dry multi-grain cereal, a piece of fresh fruit or veggies. Smoothies of some sort to drink at work. Hard-boiled eggs are easy to tote to work. I try to get most of my protein in at breakfast so I'm not munching during the day.

What a great idea. I'm going to try this in the morning. I usually boil several eggs for the week but I never thought of making adding tortilla with meat to make it a breakfast sandwich.

Frozen banana shakes:

This is great especially if you have bananas turning brown!
Peel banana, place in freezer bag until you need it.
To make the shake, put one frozen banana, 1 tsp vanilla (opt) and 1 c. skim milk in blender and blend until smoothe...you can also add nutmeg, coffee syrup (instant coffee and enough water to dissolve granules),yogurt, cinnamon, hint: non-flavored powder fiber additive is AWESOME with this!

I also love brewed coffee with (coffee and non fat creamer) ice cubes...love my iced coffee! This in a blender is like the smoothie's at Sonic, or McD's without the whip cream, sugar laced additives...

I have a microwave egg cooker, you can get them at Walmart for under $3. I put a tablespoon of (chopped fine and stored in fridge) onions, bell pepper, and jalapeno on bottom, then a frozen turkey sausage patty, then microwave for 1 minute to heat. Then I add 3 T egg white substitute and microwave for another minute. Put on english muffin with low-fat cheese....under 300 calories! Great sandwich, and no added fat needed to cook eggs!

I keep hearty granola bars (such as Clif bars) in my pantry for times when I have literally no time, but my more typical (and more satisfying) breakfast is a hard boiled egg (you can make them in advance,) a whole wheat english muffin with a little cream cheese or butter, and a glass of nonfat milk. It comes out to about 350 calories. Sometimes i replace the english muffin with a banana if I'm in too much of a hurry to use the toaster, and I keep individual cartons of milk in my fridge so I can grab them and go.

On Sunday's I usually make breakfast for the week.... I mix together some eggs with onions, crumbled breakfast sausage or bacon, cheddar cheese, and some veggies like broccoli or spinnach. I then pour the mixture into muffin tins and bake, making about a dozen or so breakfast "muffins". I eat two of them every morning for breakfast....winds up being about 250-300 calories for the two muffins, give or take. It's enough to make me content until mid morning snack or lunch. Sometimes I add a little Franks red hot to spice it up!

overnight oats as some call them- i like mine with greek yogurt, honey, blueberries, and maybe some nuts. (and cinnamon!)

smoothies with protein added.

i'm not a fan of hardboiled eggs plain, so i will periodically make a batch of little crustless 'quiches' in a muffin tin- you can add different veggies (and cheese!) to different rows of the muffin tin for variety. easy to nuke in the morning with a piece of toast/fruit.

low fat ricotta with berries, honey, & nuts. or yogurt. or cottage cheese.

multigrain bread with almond butter and pepper jelly (sounds weird but so good!)

Current goal:
-8 pounds (32 total) by October

Healthy choices and actions have positive impacts, even if the scale doesn't move!

cut up fruit. Bananas, Apples Or if you have a little extra time like 5 minutes:

Huevos Rancheros:

One of the most portable proteins is a hard-cooked egg, but it has no fiber or carbohydrates. So slice it, then roll it in an 8-inch whole-wheat tortilla with a piece of Canadian bacon or lean ham and, if you like, a ½-ounce slice of cheese. Add a tablespoon of salsa for a shot of flavor and a smidgen of vitamin C.

Slowly but surely...Never give up...

hard boil eggs for the week on sunday. in a pinch you can grab an egg to tide you over, or add to it with a small banana or low sodium string cheese. you can eat all of these things in the car without a mess! plus, i find having the hard boiled eggs around help me from making poor eating choices when hungry!

had not clue what you meant by 'MCT's so googled it and found “Medium Chain Triglycerides (MCT's) are fats that are naturally found in coconut and palm kernel oil. MCT's are more easily and rapidly digested than other types of fats, as they require lower amounts of enzymes and bile acids for intestinal absorption. MCT's are metabolized very quickly in the liver and are reported to encourage an increase in energy expenditure, while decreasing fat storage. Numerous studies suggest that substituting MCT Oil for other fats in a healthy diet may therefore help to support healthy weight and body composition.” http://amzn.to/1bpFg9N

Coconut oil coffee: 1 large cup coffee, 2 tsp coconut oil, 1 tsp MCT oil whipped in a blender until foamy.

Know this sounds terrible both taste-wise and nutritionally, but it is tasty and gives you mental clarity quickly. MCTs are absorbed into the blood stream, they bypass the digestion process that longer chain fats go through. MCT's provide quick energy for the body and are thus less likely to be stored in the fat cells. Not hungry until lunch.

Over easy egg and greek yogurt. Over easy eggs are really fast! They take like 5 min

Or greek yogurt with flax meal mixed in

Or leftovers. Who says you need breakfast food for breakfast? emoticon

Clif high protein bars and coffee is my work go to. I can't eat right when I get up so I eat at my desk when I get to work.

Lay aside life-harming heaviness and entertain a cheerful disposition.

I make a smoothie with some coffee, almond milk, spinach, frozen berries/bananas, hemp seed & wheat germ. I also put together dry oatmeal, crushed walnuts, raisins, sunflower seeds, chia seeds, cinnamon/nutmeg and then I take hot tap water and cover the oats and squeeze a little agave syrup and put the top on. It's a great breakfast mid morning, during the summer I eat it cold. Yum!

Great suggestions for breakfast.. my go to is usually greek yogurt and granola, or cottage cheese and granola. Sometimes instead of granola, I add chopped almonds, cinnamon and a chopped fruit.

Instant porridge (instant oatmeal or glutenfree flakes mix) : I put 100ml milk 1 min in the microwave, throw in 5g dried goji berries or sunmaid raisins, 5g pinenuts, 15g oatmeal/flakes, stir and ready. With a big pot of herbal tea and a mandarine or minneola.
Loved my porridge mix this week : buckwheat, rice and millet flakes.

Breakfast smoothie I can drink in the car during my long commute:

Spinach or kale or swiss card
Milk
Dark cocoa powder
Frozen fruit any kind
Dry oatmeal
Sweenener of choice

Whir it all up in the blender. Add ice if it isn't frosty enough. Yum. I eat a hard boiled egg when I arrive at work and that keeps me till lunch.

I've never liked the consistency of oatmeal and I prefer cold cereal, so a nutritionist once suggested that I eat the oats raw, cold and I do. I don't buy quick oats, so the bigger flakes are awesome with a little cinnamon, chia seeds and blueberries for me! I hard boil eggs in advance for the week, so I eat one with my oats and have the other for a mid-morning snack and I am good until lunch time.

I love oat meal it's my main breakfast, it feels me up with fruit usually blueberries and a little flax seed. then I am ready to do my chores for the day .You lost more weight ? congratulations that is fantastic. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

I started a month ago , but I didn't go nowhere.
Why? I am finding everything I do tiresome and very difficult. I am trying to continue and get somewhere with my fight for a better life. My health has been going down in the last 5 years. I am 73 and recently I am experiencing quite a bit of pain with this injury of a sciatic nerve. Of course that has nothing to do with my continued to eat things are not beneficial for me. I believe depression is the cause of wanting more sweets, is my weakne

I made a batch of the PB Fudge Protein bars this weekend, only instead of 12, I cut them into 8 to make them more of a meal replacement bar instead of a snack. Add a medium apple and my Irish Breakfast tea w/ 2 demerara sugar cubes, and I'm right in my target range for breakfast. Plus I can eat it in the car on the way to work (when your commute is an hour to an hour and a half and you already get up at 5 in the morning just to get the cats fed and cared for and you and your roommate ready for work without tripping over each other, that's a BIG plus!).

My take to work "goto" breakfast is 2 hard boiled egg whites (35), 1 light and fit yogurt (80), 2 WASA crisp bread (90) and 1 slice 2% Kraft American cheese (45) = 250 cals.

I eat the egg and yogurt first, then 2 hours later have the WASA and cheese. Eating this a little later helps me to be not as famished at lunch.

I do eat my overnight oats cold, especially now during the summer. In the winter I sometimes make a big batch of crockpot oatmeal - I keep it runny in the crockpot so when I nuke a serving of it in the mornings it firms up to the perfect texture.

I work Monday-Friday so on Sunday I do all my shopping and prep my meals. I place canadian bacon/ham patties in a cupcake/muffin tin after spraying it with nonstick spray, crack an egg over top, slice through the yoke so it pops a bit, sprinkle with black pepper and bake at 350 for about 15 minutes. You can also place veggies in the cups and bake them to go with it or just crack the eggs into the tin and skip the patties. Sometimes I will make a 100 calorie sausage patty separately to go with my egg. You can then also put the egg cups on an english muffin with cheese, wrap in wax paper and reheat throughout the week very quickly. I have also really been enjoying Chobani flips since they are more hearty than just a yogurt.


I will be where I want to be one day, but I'm the only one who can make it happen!

My life is a work in progress and eventually I will master the skill!

Do you eat the overnight oatmeal cold? I have oatmeal at least five mornings a week, by simply popping it in the microwave for a minute and a half and then adding whatever fruit I want!!!

I stir raw, old fashion oatmeal into my light yogurt. If you use the greek stuff it gets pretty pastey.

Also, since I hate that companies have "lightened" granola with some form of rice crispies, I just find a brand I like that doesn't and mix in raw oats. The oatmeal is great for you and cuts down on the fat.

When I know I won't have much time in the morning I make overnight oats. They're just one part oats and one part milk mixed together with a pinch of salt and some cinnamon, then you leave them in the fridge overnight and in the morning it's ready to eat! It's a bit like porridge but fluffier, and you can add all kinds of fruit, peanut butter, nuts, whatever you like.

The only thing that stops me being ravenous within a few hours is any cruciferous vegetable, sweet corn and lean meat.
so I have about 100g of broccoli, half a roast chicken thigh and 60-70g of frozen sweet corn.
I nuke it up when I get to work...it keeps me going till late afternoon, I walk the 5miles home munching on my pieces of fruits to fuel my walk..

Hillslug,

I agree with you on long work-out days. The day I do myu long run I need to fuel up or I will be in cravings & hungerpangs the rest fo the day.
I was never sure how much more I can eat on days for my long run and now am really enjoying the new feature which links the calories you can eat to the workout you did.

My quick breakfast for today: 2 slices of 8grain bread with 1/2 avocado spread on top, 2 cups of tea
