Cut out the potatoes and the english muffin. Both are loaded with carbs that spike the glucose level. Try hard boiled eggs with a ham slice and a piece of cheese. Bet you won't get hungry before lunch. Also take a lunch meat ham slice and stuff it with cream cheese. Works for me.
I do well with a hearty breakfast, too. I don't seem to need as much protein if I get a good dose of complex carbs. Lots of mornings it's a serving of steel cut oats and fruit, with maybe an english muffin or an egg. Sometimes I'll have a hearty granola cereal with lots of grains and nuts.

I just know that when I eat oatmeal, I'm starving about an hour and a half later. It comes on fast and strong and I can't seem to keep my appetite satisified for the rest of the day. But if I eat the same amount in protein, I can make it to lunch without feeling like I'm ready to pass out.
Yes I have high protein and carbs for breakfast. That seems to curb me for the rest of the day . My carb cravings are not so high after I eat a larger breakfst with high carbs and high protein. I was craving carbs during the day untill I tried this?

I've been eating alot of my carbs and alot of protein during my morning meal.It consists of----- 2eggs, and 1 egg white:(scrambled no oil/butter) an English muffin: unsweetened yogurt (3-0z): strawberries (100 gms): hashbrowns (80grms)(sometimes)-not evrytime 8-0z cup of coffee+(truvia) I was wondering if that may be what has been helping me not eat so much in the later part of my day since I get so much in the morning? Anyone else eat like this , and finding they arent snacking so much? I am still eating the proper amount of carbs through the day..but find I snack less and crave carbs less..... What is your opinion? .
