Eating breakfast was always the hardest thing for me to do although I knew that I needed the energy to fuel my day. I developed a few staples that all linger around 300 calories total and I rotate them through the week. This helps me to stay on track and get that early morning boost that I know my body and brain need so very much.

Something I realized I needed to do in order to be successful was to prelog my food for the whole day, preferably at breakfast and sometimes in bed before I get up.
I pretty much eat the same breakfast M W F, a different breakfast Tu Th, another breakfast on the weekends. My lunches follow a similar pattern. This also helps me create a shopping list.
In my Favorites list on the Food Tracker, I created groupings for these different days and labeled them "Breakfast - MWF", "Lunch - MWF", etc.
I have done all the major weight loss systems and failed, including Sparkpeople, but this tip alone seems to really be working this time. After I created the initial groupings, it takes me about 5 minutes a day to enter in my food for the entire day, including what I swap out of the original menu.
