I don't like sweet foods early in the morning. I prefer salty foods. I heat a package of Quinoa and Brown Rice in the mircrowave, use 1 cup of it and chop up some leftover chicken into it, for a bowl of warm and savory for breakfast. My body uses the fuel for the morning and I don't hungry again until late afternoon.
Sold at Costco in easy to heat packages for 2 servings. 240 calories per cup is 1 serving. Brand name: Seeds Of Change.

Carbs and fat are an integral part of weight loss and healthy eating. Especially if you are exercising consistently, you need carbs for fuel. Having complex carbs that are low in glycemic index should be a significant part of your diet.
Eliminate high-carb foods & try to stick to foods that are low in carbohydrates or that contain carbs that are digested slowly. Complex carbohydrates are salad greens and cooked greens, beans, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, cauliflower, celery, cucumbers, green pepper, lettuce, onion, peas & tomatoes. Foods with yeast such as wine or beer should be avoided, but that is because they also contain sugar or simple carbs. Eating a diet high in simple carbs, can help fungus thrive.
