I do most of my big meals as my breakfast as well. But for everyone else its dinner because I work nights.
In a 16-oz. glass, I add about 1 oz. cider vinegar, preferably with mother, but sometimes not. I also do the same re: balsamic or red or white wine vinegar. When weeding the gardens or mowing (3.5 acres) I take a 2-l bottle with vinegar added out with me. When I have Seltzer (it isn't available in Canada--I have to buy it in the States), I do the same. Really nice with red wine vinegar or balsamic.

I would love your breakfasts CWS....but my DH likes sweets in the morning, so this morning was whole grains cereal with toasted nuts, raisins, milk.

It never occurs to me to eat much differently from him.....but hey, I don't see why not?!!! We've been married 32 years, he ain't gonna complain now, is he?

Lunch will be our big meal of the day; I made turkey chili last evening, so will serve that up with steamed broccoli and rice. Fruit salad for dessert (there always has to be dessert at my hubby's table). He stays slim, I get fat for both of us.

It is my take on Switchel.

Pure and Strange as What I See: Switchel

I leave out the sweetener.

Soma--try it for a few days...your hubby can still have his sweets, just sub out his sweets for grains, have fresh fruit instead of the sweet option and pay attention to when you start to get hungry (make of a note of when you are hungry today as a baseline). I kid you not, adding the grains and greens to breakfast has made a huge difference re: when I get hungry and cravings for snacking during the day.

I did this to increase my energy level--I have so much more energy and am sleeping so much better. I worked nights and sleeping past 3:00 a.m. was a problem. Now I have to set my alarm or else I sleep until 8:30-9:00 a.m.!

BTW, cider vinegar is a natural appetite suppressor--you're supposed to drink it 30 minutes before eating, but I drink water with vinegar throughout the day, especially during the summer when it is hot outside=-my version of iced tea!

I'm just not a morning eater. The most I can get down is a glass of skim milk, with some low sodium V-8 later.

I had to teach myself to eat in the morning...not easy. I actually felt nauseous even thinking about food until I'd been awake for a few hours. But, my weight loss didn't start until I started eating breakfast.
