This morning was my 2nd Eat to Live morning. I had oatmeal cooked with diced apple, sprinkle of sesame seeds, handful of dried cranberries, 1/4 c. of blueberries, small handful of slivered almonds, seasoned with cinnamon and ginger. It turned out to be such a big bowl of cereal that I put 1/2 in the freezer for tomorrow. It was delicious with soy milk. No sweetner.

Yesterday, my first breakfast on Eat to Live, I had kidney beans with frozen spinach leftover from supper and orange slices.

I can do this!

I have oatmeal with blueberries, chopped nuts, sliced banana and a side dish of fruit. Breakfast is my highest calorie meal. If my blood sugar gets a little low I'll eat a banana, but I'm usually okay until lunch.

I usually have the Chocolate Banana (with cherries) smoothie or the "Quick Breakfast to Go" in Eat for Health. Depending on the day, I might feel hungry before lunch, in which case I have some fruit, or nuts, or both, or sometimes just start in on my salad for the day.

I don't feel bad eating between breakfast and lunch as long as I'm really hungry and eat something healthy.

The most effective health-care is self-care.

Nutrition is the prescription.

You can literally stretch your lifespan by shrinking your waistline.

Nutrition and other lifestyle factors that you can choose are a more significant determinant of your health than genetics.

Filling your stomach with high-nutrient foods is like by-pass surgery without the surgery.

We are all born with an innate desire to not only survive but thrive.

Having a hearty breakfast is important. I love Lisa's suggestion, it sounds great. One thing I might add is to let go of your thoughts about what is traditional breakfast food. I sometimes have leftover beans and rice. Sometimes I have salad for breakfast. I might add that my salads are HUGE. My hubby says they would feed a family of four!

I sometimes get hungry before lunch, and if I do, I eat something. An apple, a banana, my ounce of nuts for the day - something. I think if the worse thing you do on this diet is to have an occasional snack when you're hungry, you'll be doing fine. And eventually you'll find what works best for you to be able to avoid that snack if that's what you want to do.

My hunger comes between lunch and dinner because we eat a late dinner. So I have a small snack of either fruit or celery and hummus. Is it perfect? No, but neither do I give up. Do the best you can but make the plan work for you. Stay in touch and let us know how you are doing.

I soak 2 TBSP chia seeds in 5 oz almond milk for 10 minutes. Then I add 1/2 cup ezekiel cereal and 100 g strawberries or raspberries. I also usually have a banana with breakfast too. I find this really sticks with me. I am never hungry before lunch and I used to always get hungry around 10 AM before I started eating this. I use Ezekiel cereal because it is organic, whole grains, and very little sugar (less than 1 g per serving). Most cereals, even organic, have 4-15 g sugar per serving. Organics just use evaporated cane juice as the sugar. Chia seeds are great for omega 3's. There are at least 4 varieties of Ezekiel cereal: almond, flax, cinnamon raisin, and original. I have tried the almond and cinnamon raisin and love both of them.

Hey Everyone!

I am currently into my third week of the Eat to Live program. So far so good! The one thing I am struggling with the most is feeling hungry between breakfast and lunch. I know Dr. Fuhrman talks about "toxic hunger" however, I still wanted to get some feedback from you all about breakfasts that you make that really stick with you until lunch. Any ideas? Thank you in advance!
