Re: what's for breakfast?
Did the article say who did the studies? I'm curious, because it matches my
experience. I usually start off with Low-fat or Fat-free Cottage cheese and
fruit in the summer, and something warm like a 3 egg-white scramble with
Canadian Bacon in the winter. If I have cereal or bread first thing, I'm
hungry in a couple of hours, sometimes less.
Last week we stayed in a motel that had mostly carbs for breakfast- cereal,
waffles, pastries (skipped those!) and bagels. A glass of skim milk helped,
but that first afternoon I headed to the local cheese factory for some
Happy New Year, everyone!

Subject: [CHAT] what's for breakfast?
I know this is a gardening forum, but since many of us seem to be a little
concerned about our weight I wanted to share these gleanings from the
morning paper with you.
The Parade magazine gave a formula for Body Mass Index which says I should
weigh somewhere between 98 and 132 pounds. A lot of latitude there, but
I'm higher than that so I'm going back to putting more effort into the
The surprising thing I came across was in the Cook Well, Eat Well column:
"Eat a high-protein, low-carbohydrate breakfast every single day. If you
have to pick just one habit, this is it. Clinical studies show that the
blood-sugar effect of breakfast has a dramatic affect on appetite all day
long. [I knew that and always eat breakfast] Subjects who ate instant
oatmeal for breakfast ate a whopping 81 percent more during the day than
subjects who ate a cheese omelet, even though the breakfasts had the same
calorie count. So ditch the cereal, bagels, muffins, and juice and have
some protein, plus a piece of fruit. You'll be less hungry and more
energetic all day."
I have cereal every day for breakfast and I don't eat meat until I get
home at night. If this is true, perhaps I should reverse it. I'm
thinking of trying meat or cheese and fruit or yogurt (contains both the
protein and fruit) for breakfast and maybe having my cereal for supper.
Any thoughts on this?
