Quick breakfast foods for weight loss

What do you grab in the morning for a quick breakfast? My wife is not the kind of person that will wake up early to make something. She is trying to lose some weight and is not a big fan of oatmeal. Right now she normally does an english muffin with a small amount of peanut butter to keep her full until lunch. Any suggestions?

Too many sugars in an apple IMO for weight loss but very good.

Try a piece of wheat toast with a very small ammount of peanut butter.
(1/2 table spoon)

That apple is going to be 10x better for ya than wheat toast w/ PB.

Apple Glycemic Load = 5

Wheat Bread = 12
with all that fat in PB

A maintenance diet is one thing, but losing weight isn't always about eating what you like. She may not be a "fan," but oatmeal is one of the best things to eat when on a diet. It's low glycemic to get your metabolic fire stoked, loaded with fiber to help pull fat through your gut, and it's quite filling without having to consume loads of calories.

You think I'm a fan of plain broccoli and cauliflower, or chalky shakes because they are mixed with water? I eat them to achieve a specific goal in mind.

i was eating oatmeal for a while when i started trying to lose weight. but after hearing some people talk about putting the oats in a protein shake i started doing that. it is so easy and fast and i don't get hungry till about noon. but on the weekends when i am not in a rush i will have either raisin bran or grape nuts with a chopped up banana and skim milk.

I've put oats in my shakes as well, definitely a good way to change it up on both ends of the spectrum, as it changes the consitency and texture, which is a welcomed change after YEARS of drinking shake after shake. I work outta the house now, so it's nice to have a warm meal in the morning, so I make my quick oats and add the protien powder and glutamine to that.

It's best to balance all meals with carbs and protein, as it's been shown that the protien will lower the glycemic index of the carbs being ingested at the time. That's not to say that it's okay to have icecream on steak night, just be aware of what you're eating throughout the day, and adjust/combine accordingly.

I thought quality fats help lower GI, slowing down the absorption. Protein/Carbs/Fats always, unless you are doing a refeed.

You're right, but after being on the diet yo yo for years I'm a bit fat-phobic when I diet. I eat non-fat everything I can, and supplement EFAs, so I'm usually thinking only in terms of protein and carbs.

they way some of you guy talk about nutrition, you should open up your own joint and sell healthy foods/meals.

Plan ahead. Make something the night before when cooking dinner and just reheat it in the morning for breakfast. Eggs, a whole wheat tortilla and a splash of tabasco makes a great easy breakfast.

The key to weight loss is having a plan and sticking to it. Make your diet something you are capable of keeping with your lifestyle and burn more than you take in. Losing weight is not as complicated as some make it seem. Just put in the work and don't set yourself up for failure by not having a plan.

Shrimp'n ain't easy....

If she really wants to lose some weight tell her to wake up 10 minutes earlier and make something. It's not that hard. She's gonna have to put some effort into it...

You're right. Most people have misconceptions about fats.

Very true, seems a majority of people think that fats in food are the exact same thing as the fat around your gut.

The thing is though, that the fats in the foods that most over-weight people (or the average Joe for that matter) are eating is the saturated variety. So when they do start looking at labels/contents, they are seeing the bad fat. Mono-unsaturated fat is alot harder to come by nowadays, because it is so much cheaper to cook with animal lard and the bulk oil. So in essence, to them all fat is bad fat.

Just like counting calories or protioning macronutrients, monitoring fat intake takes a little education and research. I still laugh at the whole Atkins fad, where carbs in general became all evil. Just like fat, there's good and bad carbs, and the good carbs are necessary for a healthy metabolism and brain function.

Light, but high in simple sugar. You would be better off eating plain corn flakes, or rice krispies to change up the texture and taste, and add in some blueberries or whatever chopped up fruit you like, to make it a little more palatable for daily consumption.

True, true. Eating good carbs and fats every meal is an ass whip to keep up with and do consistently.

If you're working from home, get the steel cut oats since you have the time to cook them. So much better than those sloppy quick oats!
