    I am trying to eat only when I'm hungry - and I don't feel hungry until about 10 AM (or about 4 hours after I get up in the morning). When I eat breakfast earlier, I tend to start craving more food by about 10 AM, when I will eat my morning snack, lunch, and afternoon snack all at once - then I'm fine until supper. Eating breakfast keeps me from being in touch with my body's needs - which is a whole 'nother kettle of fish - I really don't think one size fits all for everything all of the time.
  • Eating breakfast is the best. I used to not eat it at all in high school but what did I know as a teenager anyway. When I eat breakfast I find myself less hungry throughout the day and I'm not prone to overeating because I haven't triggered my body's hunger response. Breakfast is a beautiful thing.
  • My experience exactly reflects what this article says. Waffles and bagels are sure guarantees of hunger pains the rest of the day. A piece of whole-grain oatmeal toast with peanut butter has staying power, and doesn't result in hunger. A bowl of oatmeal with skim milk is a sure fix and means no hunger pains for hours afterward; even more effective than the oatmeal toast with peanut butter.
  • good article. Wish I could cook every morning! I love eggs and whole wheat toast and fat free hashbrowns and stir fried veggies with eggs. Usually I'll have yogurt with a mashed banana and a tbsp of protien powder or a serving of Uncle Sam cereal and soy milk, maybe a piece of fruit. If I get hungry I will have a snack such as a piece of fruit or a tablespoon of nuts or sometimes just a teaspoon or so of peanut butter.

    I KNOW when I'm on the right track once again. How? I'm eating breakfast!!
  • Great article. I try to eat breakfast at least five days out of the week. I will incorporate the other two now.

    As I understand it (from my reading), Special K cereals and others like it are basically some over-processed grains sprayed with vitamins. It is a very expensive way to get vitamins, ounce for ounce. Better to eat whole grains in the least processed form possible and get the vitamins from other whole foods, with a supplement booster if you feel you need it.

    When the latest health craze took hold the big cereal companies looked for a way to stay on top of the wave - Bingo! the Special K, Product 19, Cheerios Diet Plan! Eat two meals a day of Special K and loose 2 pounds when a week goes 'round!
  • I always have to eat something first thing in the morning, but it's always a small 100 calorie-ish snack. Because then I exercise and I can't exercise on a full stomach! Only after that do I eat a high fiber/protein, complex carb breakfast. =)

    I take TAIslim, the product that had leptine and it control appetite. Also it works in another directions as cleanser og colon system. in addition it works on hormone to release satisfaction and other body problems. That's right it works.
  • I always eat breakfast...which can be anything from a bowl of Special K with low-fat soymilk, to leftover lasagne. to a baked potato topped with salsa!
  • I find it very confusing that this article says that waffles and bagels are not good choices while the Healthy breakfast ideas article says to have homemade waffles or a bagel with peanut butter. If those choices lead to over eating you mite as well just skip them. I must admit I have never been a big breakfast eater. I feel that if I do eat a few egg whites or a bowl of cherrios, I am just hungry all day long, compared to when I dont.

    Afraid I wasn't sure if it still counted as 'breakfast' if you eat it at the middle or end of the day?? My home schedule varies so greatly that we often chose it for a meal at anytime.
  • I have learned that a high protein breakfast holds me longer than cereal. A couple of fried eggs and 1 serving of Jennie-0 turkey sausage is my favorite. I get my cereal in as an evening snack! Kind of a sweet treat for being good all day!
  • And don't forget savory breakfasts like fat free hashbrowns and a stirfry of veggies and tofu or seitan or eggs if you eat them. I don't do well with carby, sweet, cool breakfasts like what is recommended in the article. If I eat that way, I'm starving less than 2 hours later. Give me 4-5 servings of veggies like: spinach, mushrooms, leeks and jalapeno peppers, 1 cup of hashbrowns and about 3 oz of protein and I'm good for 4+ hours. Then I do seem to have a pretty low calorie lunch.
    Also: I exercise in the morning. I exercise pretty intensely most days and eat breakfast AFTER exercising.
  • This is a great reminder! My breakfast is usually oatmeal or Fiber One cereal and a piece of fruit, a glass of OJ, coffee, and of course, my water. That always keeps me full until lunch time!
