I hate eggs for breakfast after 3 days...makes me nauseous. Today I heated 2 strips of precooked bacon, placed on two romaine lettuce leaves, sprinkled cheese, added tiny bit of diced tomato and mayo. Roll it up...BLT with cheese sans bread. It was very tasty and I will do it again tomorrow. Stay very light on tomato. Just enough for taste.

This morning I had a tilapia filet with zucchini (steam baked in parchment paper - 15 minutes + 5 minutes preparation).

Who says you have to eat "breakfast foods" for breakfast. I eat whatever I want that follows my plan. I like your "BLT" and will try it myself.

Goal!

I try to think of exercise like doing the dishes or laundry; I might not necessarily look forward to doing it, but it is necessary.

Hmmm...I am not a fish lover. I can eat tilapia, but not for breakfast. I should try that for dinner. I would probably pan fry in olive oil because I need the fat during induction. Parchment paper cooking is something I will keep in mind in the next phase! I have a hard time with breakfast in general. I usually eat yogurt and berries, trying to keep lower carb right now.

my daughter also has an intolerance to eggs, it's the whites... unfortunately that's where the protein is... so think outside the box.. What do you like? I eat so many strange things for breaky like the leftover roast beef from the other night's dinner. and a big bowl of veggies or that big bowl of soup i saved from yesterday's lunch...

Hot and Spicy noodle soup, , boil in cup, 3 minutes
Wolfgang Puck Tortilla soup in a can
Indian style - Spicy lintels ready to heat.

All found in local grocery. All low cal. and easy to fix. heat and eat.

Opps. Sorry, the post was for Atkins style diet. Above won't work. From reading these Forums, that is a problem Atkins has. Really nasty requirements

Ok...I am planning to treat breakfast like the other meals. Steak and eggs, hold the eggs! I am using romaine as my sandwich wrap for lunch,so I will do the same at breakfast.

I have found that Joseph's Flax,oat bran and Whole wheat Pita bread is good for a BLT. It is a good Atkins owl food with only 4 net carbs. I also like cottage and sliced tomatoes for breakfast.

I've tried the Joseph's and they are good, but I have an intolerance to grains, nothing to do with gluten, just find that they bloat me and I gain weight even at a low net carb...

we all have to learn what works for our own bodies.

That romaine BLT does sound good. I bought some romaine and a tomato last night and will add this to my meal planner. Thanks for the tip riggli.

I have also found that eggs get a bit much after a couple of days. No matter if they are scrambled, fried, poached or omelette. It still tastes the same. I'm now trying a protein shake every couple of days for breakfast. Or yogurt with strawberries.

I had a pumpkin pie smoothie for breakfast: 8 oz almond milk, 1 oz. HWC, 4 oz. canned pumpkin (not pie filling!), scoop of unflavored whey protein, 7 g of psyllium husk powder, shake of pumpkin pie spice, splash of vanilla and 8 oz of ice cubes. Blend it up and drink it down on my way to work. About 5 net carbs.

The BLT sounds good but is sorely lacking in the 4-6 ounces of protein you are to have at each meal.

I love the BLT idea -- I usually have cottage cheese with a sprinkle of cinnamon on top (not a big egg fan either). I also love the pumpkin smoothy...I'm not sure I know what "4oz of canned pumkin" NOT pie filling is, do you get that at a normal grocery store? Sounds Yummy!!

I have to admit that my protein ingestion increases over the day. I eat more at lunch and even more at dinner...but my activity also increases. My job is sedentary. I don't usually get to walk in the morning when I work, so I get moving during my 1:30 break, again in the evening and a final walk just before bed. Hopefully this balances out my uneven food consumption! On my days off, I get moving in the morning and eat more as well.

i alternate types of eggs: scrambled one day, egg salad w/ mayo the next, etc. that helps mix it up. but my favorite for breakfast when i want to skip the eggs altogether is ham & cream cheese rollups. quick to make and easy to eat while getting ready for work. any kind of deli meat will do - ham, turkey, chicken, even salame. i like the trader joe's cream cheese, only 1 carb per oz.

Eat a different protein, like steak, chicken or turkey.

Meat in the morning is starting to get easier. By the time I get to work, I feel ready for it. I have started packing leftover meat from dinner the night before. Never thought I would snack on cold pieces of beef at 9 in the morning, but starting to enjoy it. Kroger CARBMASTER yogurts are fantastic! 60 calories and 4 carbs...8 g protein. Lots of flavors. Today's breakfast Peach yogurt and 10 unsalted roasted almonds.No leftover meat...missing it! Snacking on celery to tie me over until my lunch.

I don't do breakfasts well at all. I can not find a yogurt that fits my carb restrictions. We do not have a Kroger's anywhere near me. I use a protein shake for breakfast. 100% whey protein, from Costco, 27g protein and only 3 carbs. This has worked great for me. Down 41 pounds. Smile

When it comes to losing weight, our thinking of what kind of food to eat at certain times of the day needs to change. I ate a 10oz ribeye for breakfast this morning. I feel better than I have in a long time.
