Sometimes it is a steak (that's what I had yesterday for breakfast) but often it is 2 hardboiled eggs or yogurt with nuts mixed in. I can't eat until I'm hungry in the morning and don't EVEN suggest peanut butter before noon. That makes me gag (even though the PB is just peanuts). Funny I can eat nuts (usually about 10-12 almonds or walnut halves) with my yogurt, but I can't eat PB.
There are a lot of doctors who agree that you shouldn't eat until you are hungry, even if it means skipping breakfast.

As we get older our metabolism's slow down. It takes a well balanced diet to maintain or lose weight. I,m no expert the experts say eat every 4 hours.

Yesterday, I invited some freinds for dinner. I was very happy because everyone had noticed that I lost some weight. I only lost 11 Ibs and trying for more 20 or 25 Ibs but that is a good start. Four years ago I was 40 Ibs less from what I am now. This was because I was breastfeeding and going to the gym 3 times every week. I returned to my weight when I was in high school. But everyone at that time including my husband and my parents told me this was too much and I have to gain 20 or 25 Ibs to look healthy. Unfortunately they convined me and I gained not only 25 Ibs but reached 40 Ibs in 4 years. Now I think they were jelous from me. So I intend on going back but ofcoarse this time is harder because I don't have time to go to the gym and I am not breastfeeding anymore, but I'LL BE BACK.

It's true your metabolism slows down as you get older. But just because experts say to eat every 4 hours doesn't mean that rule is for everyone. Eat when you're hungry, don't overeat and try water first. Walk before you decide to eat and remember portion control is key. My problem is that I discovered baking...which is awful. My cheesecakes and lava cakes and yummy treats caught up with me and meds also didn't help...
Each person, body is different. The key is movement and eating well and to NOT over eat.

I am confused, why are you folks cooking different foods for yourselves and your families? I prepare a healthy meal for everyone when I diet! We have been extremely surprised will the delicious and nutricious (groan) recipes I've found and created.

I think some people on here have special diets because of health issues. I've done it before, it's not that bad.

I would like to lose some weight too. But it's so hard nowadays, everytime I think I'm doing good I turn around and fail the next day! I'm a Type 1 Diabetic though and I weigh 180 lbs at 5"6 (doctors say for my height I should weigh about 130) - I'm 23 years old, and I haven't been there since like 9th grade. I've looked for interesting weight loss recipes, but I've yet to find any of those... So If you've got Healthy Recipes, I'd like to hear your suggestions! Maybe with others with me, I'll find the courage and drive to lose a few pounds.

I cook for my health, which would also be perfect for my husband. But he won't eat correctly, he may eat what I fix, but then he "supplements" with all the wrong things.
