    So, I'm trying once more to lose weight. I just had 1.56 lbs of mixed fruit for breakfast. Is that too much? I gotta say it definately fills me up but is that too much sugar and what not? I know it's definately better than the bacon, egg, and cheese croisant and hash browns I usually have.

    You'd be better off with Oatmeal and some eggs. Oatmeal being a very low GI carb will keep you full for longer. Fruit isn't going to last very long.

    I also got some almonds for when I start to feel hungry. From what I hear they are very filling.

    Oh and I'm not a big fan of oatmeal. Doesn't taste like anything to me and once I get it to a taste I like I've added so much sugar to it that it probably kills the healthiness of it.

    well you do have to make sacrifices. Try eating it with eggs in it. That's what I do, 6 eggs, 2 yolks, some salt and spray butter.

    well it depends on the situation. Sometimes I boil them ahead of time and then cut em up in there. It tastes better to scrabble them at the time you're eating them though.

    Would two or three eggs for breakfast be enough? What about eating that many eggs in a week, isn't that bad? Sorry if these sound like stupid questions but I'm pretty dumb when it comes to eating right.

    not stupid questions. You're fine. I would do like 4 eggs, (2 whole, 2 whites), I do 6, 4 whole and 2 whites. Eggs are fine. Most people here eat tons of them. I eat around 5 dozen a week.

    PS, don't use instant or quick oatmeal. Get regular oatmeal.

    1.5lbs of fruit sounds like heaps to me

    I'd only have around 100 grams tops, then try and get some lean protein with every meal including breakfast

    I wouldn't worry about about, you need to avoid sugar carbs period.

    if you don't like eggs in oatmeal and want to go back to sugar you could try an ass ton of splenda. I dunno how healthy that would be but it prolly won't kill you.

    That's my daily breakfast. Oatmeal with a banana and applesauce tossed in and sprinkled with peanuts. Possibly an egg white too. :cool:

    In my house, we eat oatmeal with peanut butter. It's like having a PB sandwich in a bowl!
