I have been drinking a protein meal replacement shake from amway called nutilite vanilla flavor. It really taste good like vanilla shake but milky and smooth. If anyone would like to order please let me know. I can have it shipped to you. This is the web site to order. They really help you stay full.

Good luck with dieting

In the past few months, I discovered a new health podcast called "Cut the Fat Weight Loss Podcast." They recommended a high protein pancake recipe that I have tried twice now and it is DELICIOUS! Even my traditional, Cajun husband loved them this morning. Here's the recipe:

Makes 1 serving of about three 6-inch pancakes.

1/2 C oats
1/2 C lowfat cottage cheese (they recommend low salt version, but I use regular)
1 egg
plus minimal nonfat milk or water to thin batter as needed (or other milk type product of your choice such as soy, almond, coconut, etc.)

Blend all ingredients in a blender or food processor, except for the milk thinning product. Add that in at the end in small amounts to achieve the desired consistency you like for pancake batter. I used about 1/3 to 1/2 cup of nonfat milk this morning and it made them into a good consistency. I think a little thinner batter is better for this recipe and allows the pancake to cook more thoroughly throughout.

Pour batter onto hot griddle or pan and flip when edges start to look cooked (about 1-2 minutes). Cook on second side until desired doneness is achieved.

Top with your favorite fruit or syrup product (I use either agave syrup or pure maple syrup) or other topping as desired.

Calories*: 363 (for three 5-6" pancakes, no toppings)
Carbs: 37.75g
Protein: 28.54g
Fat: 10.88g

* Includes the following cottage cheese brand: Knudsen 2% lowfat cottage cheese. Also includes the 1/2 C nonfat milk that I add in.

I compared this to what my family usually uses for pancakes, which is Krusteaz buttermilk pancake mix, and the nutrition facts for a serving of that is:

Serving Size: 3, 4-inch pancakes
Calories: 180
Carbs: 36g
Protein: 4g
Fat: 1.5g

So you're getting 7 times the protein in the oats version pancake recipe. I love that I can have a yummy pancake breakfast and get a lot of protein. It's worth the extra calories for me and more nutritious overall. The blending of the ingredients takes away any recognizability of the cottage cheese texture and oatmeal texture, so don't let that stop you if you don't like those ingredients. Try it! As a matter of fact, my dad HATES cottage cheese, but I'm going to make him some of these pancakes but not tell him what's in them, to see if he likes them. Very Happy

I have a little less than half a cup of French Vanilla yogurt and I put in lots of my favourite berries inside. I sprinkle in some cinnamon because not only is cinnamon healthy, but it also serves as a sweetener. I may or may not sprinkle in shaved almonds or crushed peanuts, it depends if I'm in the mood for the crunch. All in all this breakfasts helps with my sweet tooth while still being healthy.

I don't eat in the morning, but when I do eat, around noon or one-ish, I have been having a big bowl of a cup of kimchi, a peeled grapefruit in sections, and a portion of meat or fish.

Sometimes it is good to shake things up. Have left over dinner for is already prepared...all you have to do is warm it up and go. This morning I had left over salmon, some avocado tomatoes and did my kids.

Getting locked into the mindset that people have to eat "breakfast foods" is the worst thing they can do, if all that's on the list is things like cereal, baked goods, and sugar-sweetened yogurt.

Leftovers with a poached egg on them or eggs scrambled into them are great, too.

Exactly eKatherine. For me breakfast was always bagels, toast, buns, egg sandwiches ...all whole grain of course....starving by 10 am everytime. In our house we sometimes reverse the day. Today we ate last night's salmon at breakfast and this evening we made a big omelette with other left overs, veggies and a fruit for dessert.

I dream about this breakfast at night, eat it every day: 1/4 cup old fashioned oatmeal in bowl with 1/3 cup skim milk. microwave 1 min. add 1/4 cup walnuts and 3 large sliced frozen cherries, or fresh strawberies..., add more milk to desired consitency. microwave 1 more minute. beware boil over - practice makes perfect. add 4 tsp sugar (slightly heaped tbs) to balance wanluts. while oatmeal cools, microwave 3/4 cup egg substitute in another bowl for two min. chop eggs, add salt and pepper, top with 1/4 cup cheddar cheese. take a leak while eggs cool. eat them first, then oatmeal. 599 calories (25% protein). once a week or so I substitute a banana for the fruit, for an extra 80 calories or so. On hiking or golf mornings I increase oatmeal to 1/3 cup, and cook for the first minute with 1/2 cup skim milk.

Never miss breakfast, it is the most important meal of the day and is necessary to bring out the best in you. If you don’t agree with my opinion that you need to ear healthy to stay healthy, then you can find out for yourself from the internet, from books like 21 days to slim, or by consulting a dietitian.

While I would agree with you that we need to eat healthy to stay healthy, there is a lot of disagreement about what "healthy eating" means, especially given individual needs.

The fact is that lots of healthy people do not eat breakfast and are doing just fine.

Estimated Calories
I've read in several different places that 1lb of fat equals 3,500 calories. If you want to add one pound in a week then add 500 calories above your exercise amount per day.
