In general I do normally eat the most in the morning, the least at dinner and I do snack through out the day, almonds, fruit, piece of cheese. But I always keep my total calorie intake between 1500 & 2000. From what I've read, the biggest meal of the day should be breakfast because then your active so you burn it off.
But I think my one ingredient strategy is key. Fruit, nuts, meat, poultry, pork chicken - one ingredient. And when I cook, I don't add anything, no salt, pepper, marinade...nothing. I thought the food would be bland and nasty when I first decided to try but quite the contrary...to me it tasted so much better then the food we "doctor up" with sauces & such. The only condiment I use is yellow mustard and I make sure that there are no preservitives in it just mustard seed, turmeric, vinegar.
Everything above this line is just my opinion, I could be wrong.

I am in awe; don't you get tired of just plain meat and veggies. I can't get my mind set to that; I like a variety of foods; not just plain foods; but, that is part of my problem. With a spouse; it is hard to have breakfast as the biggest meal; old habits die hard; used to having it when he came home from work. Time for a change, now retired; and need to take small steps.

I was under the impression that eating a breakfast kick starts the metabolism. Never used to eat breakfast but forcing myself to do so now and I'm finding that I have much more energy.I vary from porridge to eggs to yoghurt and fruit each day depending on what I fancy, early days for me still but I've not felt hungry yet!

This morning for breakfast, I had a large Sun Dried & Tomato Tortilla with a 1/4 cup of shredded cheese [warmed in the microwave to melt the cheese] and 1 whole egg & 2 servings of egg whites with 1 cup of mixed baby greens lettuce and ketchup - it's filling and unlike other usual breakfast meals, I'm not hungry again by 10:00 am

I have been using our Skinne' shot. in the morning. It has Niacin 20mg Vitamin B6 1mg Vitamin B12 1mcg Magnesium 24mg Chromium 100mcg Garcinia Cambogia 500mg Guarana Extract (seed) 455mg Conjugated Linoleic Acid 325mg Rhodiola Rosea Extract 150mg Caffeine 100mg Raspberry Ketone 50mg

The Garcinia Cambogia Dr. Oz had on his show, it is a fat blocker. Lots of good stuff in here and it is small like a shot 2 oz. Ingredients do matter.

Becareful of what you see on Dr Oz.

There is absolutely no clinical proof that this (fat blocker?) is a weight loss solution.
what usually happens with this and all other 'magic' pills , hcg etc. is that the dieter tends to stick to the reduced calorie eating plan more faithfully because they're taking the product.
Garcinia Cambogia is traditionally used as a purgative, or a laxative and that might be a small reason why some feel it works.

Here is a quote from a fellow surgeon at Mt Sinai "I asked if he would place his confidence in a heart surgeon, no matter how gifted, who operated just once a week, as Oz does. “Well,” he replied, “in general you want a surgeon who lives and breathes his job, somebody who is above all devoted to that.” Again he mentioned Oz’s experience, but when I asked if he would send a patient to Oz for an operation, he looked uncomfortable. “No,” he said. “I wouldn’t. In many respects, Mehmet is now an entertainer. And he’s great at it. People learn a lot, and it can be meaningful in their lives.

He's become an entertainer and a seller of products.

That is just one of the ingredients in it. With the combination of all the other ingredients it working for thousands of people and that is what makes a difference. Simple changes that help people to live healthier lives.
I replied as you didn't want to eat breakfast just thought you might want something to get your metabolism going in the morning as it is important.
Don't seem to be having that laxative issue either.
This is not magic pill or hcg diet.

Sorry, just find that alot of misinformation goes thru that show and because people use 'saw it on Dr Oz' they think it's true.

I haven't found anything that ups the metabolism, I've had a bad thyroid for 40 years and to this date there is nothing that has boosted mine. Even eating natural spices, nothing.

Oh sorry to hear that. Just a suggestion....doing some small exercise before you eat helps me. I have been on this for a couple of months now and found when I follow the plan it works. We do one small change each week so it isn't so overwhelming for people. Getting more important to follow the plan too as I only need 9 more lbs to get to my goal weight.
Thanks for sharing.

I finally 'googled' to find out that hemp hearts are like sunflower seeds, shelled. I guess we don't have hemp around our local area; so would have to sub

For me, the key has been a liquid breakfast. 1 scoop of protein powder, 3 ice cubes, 1 cup of milk and 1 (100ml) yogurt cup. Keeps me full right up till 1pm.

Cottage cheese and triscuts for me. Add some fruit to that and I am ready for the gym.
