I always try to have precooked meat available for breakfast. It can be as simple as reheating a beef, bison, or lamb burger or a little more time consuming in slicing a serving of lamb or beef roast.

So do you just keep a cooked beef roast in your fridge and slice a couple pieces off for breakfast? I'll have to try that, I guess. Maybe cook it in the crock pot so it has some moisture and then keep it in the fridge for easy slicing during the week?

eating this way is a blessing....goodbye cravings and low sugar swings!
also have root veggies ready for when you feel you need some compliant starch in your diet.

On preparing... I have dusted off my George Foreman grill and that's how I'm cooking all the meat in the morning believe it or not. It's fast, easy clean up and I can get ready for the day while the cooks away!

Others have recommended cooking up some burger or salmon patties and then reheating them. I have more time on my hand right now so I'm relying on ol' George more. But when I get back to work, I expect I will be doing some solid weekend cooking for the week. Menu planning... ugh.

Another way to deal with this ! eating more protein in the early part of the day"
is to cook more food in the evening - and just eat it cold for breakfast .
Like cold beef, turkeybreast in the morning with broccoli and the rest of a salad it ok for my daughter
- however she prefers eggs. So if she gets up late I always stock a few hardboiled eggs to eat on the way to the buss with some fruit and cold veggies.
I also keep uncooked turkey patties frozen in the freezer
- parboil them before I fry them with eggs in ghee- add a few veggies - easy and good.

Just think ahead

Whenever I cook meat or fish for dinner I cook enough to have left overs for breakfast.

Lola, thanx for the encouragement.

My husband usually takes the dinner leftovers for lunch the next day.  So I suppose I'll just have to roast some meat to keep in the fridge for the week.

Eat your left overs for breakfast... it sounds crazy but that's what I do... that way you don't have to worry about having or not having the time too cook... you are just heating them up.

Since I have worked shift work... I don't look at as breakfast I just look at it 's another meal.

I save my fruit for the afternoon.  I am a morning person and the afternoon is when I need it.  My recommendation is no more than a 2 day... if you want some at every meal then cut them up and divide it

I drink a sip of water after eat bite and always try and put down my fork.  This helps me with my portion control.... and portion control is Very VERY important.  It helps fill me up.

I pay very close attention to my hands.  If they are swollen then I know I need to cut back on the carbs.  I only eat bread when it's homemade.  

I also pick my battles.... instead of trying to elimate all avoids then I pick and choose them.  Example:  Some times I choose cheese or I will choose 1 cookie or a milk shake... Try with no more than 1 avoid a day then cut it down to 2-3 a week then maybe 1 a week.  If you are eatting 80% benefits then you are on the right track as far as I am concerned.

The important thing is to not try and do everything at once... Try and make 1 change every 2 wks... if you have trouble then try one thing every month.  I tryed to make one change every week and that was just too much for me...

The very... Very.... VERY... best tip I can give you.  Is to be honest with yourself.  If you are an emotional eatter... as I am.  Then you have to address that 1st and formost.  No diet will solve your problem.  Or it will be a temp fix for a while.  If you are an emotional eatter then you really need to look at getting support by joining an OA group (Overeaters Anonymous)

Supplements - I have a slight thyroid problem - it not consider issue in VA but other states consider it an issue.  I take Kelp or Bladderwack everyday and I have elminated Floride from water tooth paste and denist, I don't eat any raw broccoci or cabbage.  These are some of the things I do to help with the thyroid issue.

glad that works for you......I would suggest you drink a whole glass of water a half hour before lunch and not sips of water during lunch.......you can then have another glass of water an hour or more after you ve had lunch.
chewing your food thoroughly and eating slowly will help your gastric juices do their work.

No leftovers in this house - piggie here eats the lot - plate piled high with broccoli - always more hungary when tired and it has to be very hot. One reason why I eat a lot of apples - they have the sweet crunch - I did eye up the cherries and lovely plums on the market stall this week but cannot trust myself to eat the lot in one sitting so i declined to buy - sad really but I do work hard up and down stairs all day!

I'm thinking that you should eat more beneficial fruits, and ditch the two or three apples (neutrals) a day, ...

And apples are downgraded to a type O neutral infrequently in all the Health Library books.

I am trying to look at apples in a different light - the difficulty is the other O benificial are so squashy and slip down too easily and gone too quick - I am not a smoothy lover - apples have a real bite and crunch

I used to be the biggest apple lover! Now I never eat them.

Also, hopefully you are buying organic apples or are taking special precautions to try to wash the chemicals off of them, since apples are listed by EWG as the second worst food for pesticide residue.

Quoted from Cynthia_Siemon
What really helped me to lose weight was to always eat protien before I eat any carbs. †The book that really helped me was "The Carbohydrate Addicts Life Span Program", By Dr. Richard F. Heller and Dr. Rachael F. Heller. †They do a good job of explaining insulin releases, your liver, blood sugar levels, and uncontrolable hunger cravings. †They also recommend the BTD on their site. †I was able to lose 75 lbs following their program and have kept it off for 6yrs. †It's not a starvation diet. †It's a life style change of the way you eat. †I feel so good when I follow the program that if ever I'm in a position where I can't follow it and I eat what's available, I can't wait to get back on it the next day. †Not only did I face ridicule for the BTD but also for following this program. †It made my family mad, †because I wouldn't join them in their eating binges like I used to do. †The fight has been worth it, because I feel great, †and God has been my strength the whole way.



Cynthia, last night I purchased what I thought was this book you talk about but turns out it's only the Cookbook.  Given all the wonderful recipes we have out here do you think it's worthwhile keeping the cookbook or just take it back and get the Life Span book?

I'm with Speedy ... that crunch and slurp you get with a good apple just can't be beat by a soft mango.  I do eat organic.

I'm at my desired weight.. 97 lbs. on a 4' 10 frame... I don't want to let the weight creep up, so I watch it.
I used to  have coffee with cream and sugar for breakfast... now I just have green tea.. nothing in it.. nothing to eat.. I know most people say to eat breakfast, but this just works for me.    I now drink a small glass of pinapple juice with my plain green tea.
no snacks... at lunch I have a very large salad of romain lettuce with either 2 oz.  ground beef or walnuts and dried cherries... topped with olive oil only....
no snacks till dinner... dinner is usually  small portion of beef... 2 to 4 oz.... or fish...  lots of veggies like roasted onions, kale, parsnips, and other bennie veggies.... with lots of curry, turmeric and olive oil....
occasionally I have some figs or plums  when I feel really hungry.. but for ME, I try not to snack between meals.. also,  when I sit down to a meal, I eat until I am really satisfied.. I  usually have a nice  big dinner of veggies, so I'm  not really hungry in the mornings..
I'm 47.. I know breakfast is supposed to be important, but I gain when I eat breakfast... I just know my own body by now.... I just don't eat rice cakes, Ezekiel bread, manna bread, rice,  at all.. just makes me gain.   This isn't going to work for everyone, and it's probably not a great example, but I just wanted to share what works for me.  
I get a ton of exercise..  power yoga most days.. some tennis..  some walking.. some gardening.. some cleaning...  also, DRINK LOTS OF  PURE WATER EVERY DAY!!  lots!!

Quoted from MzMoonpie
How do people have time to eat meat at breakfast? †My mornings don't really allow for cooking. Can anyone suggest a quick meat to eat for breakfast?


Um.... †you get up a little earlier? †Radical concept, I know...



OK.

Just teasing.

Most of my cooking (when I can't persuade my wife that she's the cook...) is done at night. It's very easy to grill more-than-enough lamb-chops for supper and have 'em in the fridge the next day or two. I can eat lamb cold, but if I want it warmed, it takes less than a minute in the nuker.
Or, I fry myself a couple of eggs, and throw the chop in while the pan is warming. By the time the pan is up to speed and the eggs are cooked, the chop is warm enough. †Those'd be some of my favorite breakfasts.

To all you folks who will now suggest kale... I'm not really a greens-in-the-morning kinda guy, except for green string-beans... or maybe spinach.

I buy most of my lamb from Costco. You get these big flats of eight or ten chops, and each chop is 2.5 to 3 cm thick.... † †mmmmmmmmmmmm

Sheri Lewis had the right idea - Lambchop is good. † † †

(Bad joke, and you have to be kinda old to get it.)

HAH!  I'm in my second year of NOT doing that.

I've got so much hardware in my mouth that only a couple of teeth actually touch, so that's where I chew until I get bored and then I swallow the mess while it's still very coarse.   Appetizing thought, huh?

My gut is not entirely happy with this state of affairs. Another year, some surgery, and another ten or twenty thousand bucks, and I'll be able to chew like normal people.  Something to look forward to.

Yow!  Sheri!   Your entire day's food  sounds like my idea of a light lunch.

But then, I'm a little taller, I'm male, and I'm currently 220 pounds (down from 245 earlier this year).

I find that the higher the percentage of my intake is meat, the denser my muscles get (without extra exercise... gotta love that) and the more the fat burns off.  But I'm married to a B+ so I'm constantly having things that I shouldn't.

Hey Geminisue!

I don't recomend my way of eating for just anyone because it's pretty limited.  I do switch the veggies around a lot... sweet potatoes, kale, onions, parsnips...  mostly all bennies... and just some meat..  LOTS of salad,  lots of oive oil....  but hey, at 47, I KNOW a great deal about my body.  and I fudged a little.. I'm not even quite 4'10"..lol... so I do have to watch it!

Heh, Kevin.. yep...  wish I could be a big boy and eat more!

I eat very similiar to what you do, but I eat greens, broccoli, and green beans with my 2 oz portions three times a day.  I am 5'2 1/2" tall, I've already lost 90+ lbs but have quite a bit more to go.  I'm averaging 1/2 lb loss a day. unless I eat something that is an avoid, that I get blocked up and have to lose it again.  It's the Won't Power I sometimes mess up.
