Whenever I eat a breakfast with high carbs (20g+) AND high protein (15g+), it's much easier for me to stay in calorie range. I know that the idea of high carbs so early in the day can sound scary, but as a member of SP for almost four years, I can assure you that this combined with protein will shut hunger pangs DOWN.

This snack is amazing! You have 6 ounces of fat free Greek Yogurt, 1 teaspoon of honey, 1/2 cup of chopped strawberries, and 1-2 packets of Splenda. It feel like a cheat snack that gives me my sweet tooth fix, while burning fat!
This makes a great mid-afternoon snack because it is lower in carbs and higher in protein.
I use Oikos or Fage plain Greek yogurt (1 C), & add 1 tsp of real vanilla extract, two packets of Splenda, & 2 tbsp of Polaner Sugar-Free Strawberry Preserves with Fiber. It stirs up into a very thick, yummy, satisfying dessert with very high protein, low carbs, and low calories.
Oikos and Fage, in that order, are the two yogurts with the highest protein and lowest carbs.
