I hate to toss the whites, but that may be the solution. I generally scramble the eggs in fat from the bacon, so that's probably as much fat as I can get from the cooking method.

Maybe I could use the whites to make meringue cookies for my mom, get some protein into her.

I have burgers for breakfast. Eggs do not hold me till lunch. Or I have eggs with ground beef. I always toss the whites too, just yolks.

I guess you could try just eating the yolks, Nay, or throwing out every other white. That would get the fat and calories up while reducing the bulk. Or adding extra fat to your eggs when you cook them? Though I have to admit that 4 extra large eggs with about 2 tablespoons of drippings isn't very satisfying for me, either.

Mom, are you through the Induction Flu phase? A lot of people get really tired while their body is making the transition from burning carbs to burning fat. Just be patient. It usually passes within a few days, a couple of weeks at the most.

If I'm at home for breakfast, it's usually pig meat and eggs or leftover dinner. On the road I like sausage mcmuffins with no muffins.

I guess the bacon and eggs are a little light. Under 400 calories and 20 g fat. It's just that the eggs are so bulky, I can't really eat anymore.

I have no idea why, but bacon and eggs (or sausage and eggs) just don't hold me until lunch. I get hungry again after a couple hours.

Breakfast looks a little low fat, were you hungry before lunch? Watch out for sugar alcohols in the Atkins bars, they can be a problem.

If you ever want help, just post a sample menu and people may tell you what foods to drop. For example, cheese and dairy can stall a lot of people. Fruit is high in sugar.

Don't feel too bad about him losing faster. You'd still be considered fit at 24% bodyfat, whereas he would be average/overweight.

Take your time and enjoy how great low carb makes you feel - the fat will come off slowly but more or less surely.

Welcome. Be careful, some fruit can be very high carb.

Welcome, Sandy! Ugh, my metabolism did that, too! So frustrating. :)

Hello my name is Sandy and I have been a member of spark for a very long time. However, I started back with the New Year. So far I have lost 4 pounds. Not from not dieting or exercising. I was exercising 1 to 1 1/2 hours a day. I lost 6 inches but only 4 pounds. However my BMI is still saying I am overweight, it doesn't differentiate between fat and muscle. So I decided over a week ago to cut down on my exercise to 45 minutes to an hour a day and go low carb to get the scale moving down.

I have the book low carb for dummies and I am still eating vegetable and fruits but no pasta, potato or bread 6 days a week. I allow myself the occasional carb on Sunday as we travel out of town to visit family and I can not always control what food is offered when visiting. My husband lost 4 pounds last week and me only one pound. UGHH! so aggravating but I am hoping week two we be better. I pack my husbands lunch and make is breakfast. He is eating what I am with a few more snacks and losing. UGHH! When I hit 40 seems like my metabolism stopped as well.
