Skipping breakfast slows down your metabolism. I usually eat a couple of eggs. Some fresh fruit. Coffee. Maybe some natural yogurt.

Fresh fruit like strawberries and pineapple, greek yogurt and coffee

I try not to skip breakfast, I like either 1 slice of homemade french toast and a couple of zigzags of syrup w/ the rest of the beaten egg scrambled, and a cup of almond milk. Or 1 lg poached egg on 1/2 of a 100 calorie whole grain english muffin, the other 1/2 toasted and spread with 1 tsp sugar free orange marmalade and coffee.

On work week days, it's oatmeal with blueberries or some other fresh fruit or All Bran with raisins and skim milk. On weekends, I will scramble an egg, sometimes with turkey sausage, sometimes fresh fruit, sometimes whole wheat toast. No matter how rushed I am, I eat breakfast - mainly because I'm hungry!

For me, breakfast is all about fiber. I like to be as regular as a clock, and Fiber One Original (1 cup, 114% Daily Value for fiber) keeps me that way. I add a cup of skim milk, 2 tbl wheat germ, either a banana or blueberries, and even occasionally 15 oz of chopped walnuts if I'm really hungry. That's about 390 calories without the walnuts, 496 with. Easily keeps me satisfied for five hours.

If I want something hot, I'll have steel-cut oats, but that has less fiber and takes a while to make. So that's only a couple times a week.

I usually start my day with a bowl of multi-grain cheerios with fresh strawberries or a banana and sometimes a cup of tea. I have high blood pressure and have to watch my salt intake for the day. This breakfast choice seems to work for me so far.
I think I should start walking/exercising more now that the weather in the great northeast is getting much better.

I`m type2 diebetic& when I eat cold cereal &toast for breakfast it fades fast on me. Eggs,sausage or bacon&eggs or any other combonation works great. Hot cereal isn`t too bad either.
opiec1 responded:
Upon waking, I drink 3 8oz glasses of distilled water 15 minutes apart. Then on the way to work another 24 oz. Start breakfast with an apple, then instant oatmeal with a scoop of protien powder, spoonful of sunflower seeds, a handful of bluberries, and a tablespoon of honey all mixed up. Yum!
