I’ve eaten primarily the same thing for breakfast for the past several years: oatmeal with some protein added and a piece of fruit.
Lately, though, I’ve been frustrated that I gained some body fat, and seem unable to shake it lose. So I’m taking a step and shaking things up.
I’ve read a bunch of blogposts by fitness folks suggesting ways to cut some that stubborn body fat. Most of them have suggestions that I know I can do.
All of them have made two suggestions that conflict with that oatmeal breakfast:
1. eat some kind of vegetable every time you eat. (I am still completely confabulated by this one).
2. save your grain-based meals for only after a workout.
I’m going to give this a try. One month as much as possible.
Today I’m having a egg/eggwhite kind of frittata- lots of veggies gently sauteed then stuck together with one egg and some egg-white. However, I know from experience that I cannot do this every day without my cholesterol rising. So I need to figure out other things to have for breakfast that aren’t egg based, feel like breakfast to me (instead of eating supper first thing in the morning), and contain vegetables and protein.
