Today for breakfast was 2 slices of light whole grain toast 1 piece topped with laughing cow swiss cheese & sugar free strawberry jam on the other slice there was 1 tbsp creamy peanut butter with sugar free strawberry jam. A cup of coffee with cream & I also had a jack links original beef steak jerky. Only 50 calories with 9 grams of protein in the beef stick. I need to stop & pick up some dried fruit & nuts. Any favorite kinds of dried fruit anyone would recomend? Thanks again for everyone s input!

I like dried Turkish apricots (the soft and juicy ones), guava rolls, freeze dried strawberries, mango, dried banana chips (unsweetened) funny since I don't eat fresh banana at all! Never had dried kiwi before, I wish we had it here. I love fresh kiwis
Dried papaya is also very good. Not too fond of prunes, I ate bags of prunes when I was pregnant for the constipation. Not cool! And the peaches taste a bit hairy to me. I also love currants and dried cranberries.

Exactly. Who isn't rushed in the morning trying to get husband, children and self out the door. Unfortunately 'self' is the last one taken care of properly. When she first started on this quest, she lost weight. And she was including a protein in her breakfast. Now she has reached that dreaded plateau. And she had not been including a protein anymore. It is something more than one of us has noticed. She was also grabbing a not so healthy lunch. A blueberry muffin does not constitute a healthy meal.

The most important element in any diet is support. And if I have to go to SD myself and slap her into compliance with a slice of wet bread just to let her know I care, along with the rest of members of DC, then I will. She has a daughter along with her husband that needs her. Her doctor told her in no uncertain terms, "lose the weight now or die." Those are strong words for a doctor to utter. It shook SB to her very core. She started her diet the very next day. Other than breakfast, she was also not been including foods that have to be chewed. A very important act to perform in any diet. It sends a host of information to the brain which in turn tells the stomach that it is going to feel fuller very shortly.

What are your favorite fresh fruits? When dried, the flavor is more intense.

So how did you feel after a protein filled breakfast? And did it take any longer for you to prepare and eat?

I felt good this morning after having some protein. I was suprised at the energy it gave me. You could not have been more right! Thank you!! It didn 't take any longer to make or eat either. I would like to be able to find some type of a high protein cereal somewhere. School starts back tomorrow for our daughter so back to a bowl of cereal in the morning, I did really enjoy the toast this morning, probably have the same tomorrow. Thanks again!

Today's breakfast was a serving of oatmeal cooked with brown sugar and wild blueberries.

On mornings when you are rushed, have a smaller bowl of cereal and a piece of gran toast with the peanut butter. You need that protein.

Boring--2 poached eggs on steamed bok choy, 1/2 c 10-grain cereal blend, red pepper slices, and a cup of warm water with 1/2 of a Meyer lemon juice.
