my daily breakfast of choice is a smoothie. i do use a banana in it; eventually i know the daily smoothie will need a different flavourful fruit or other addition to the protein powder. for now i corrected my a1c enough that the banana is ok. occasionally i indulge on "special" occasions like yesterday and go for the carb or the sweets with my lil darling. rare though. and boy do i feel it on those occasions. it definitely sets the day off in the wrong direction. today right back to smoothie breakfast.

and yeah i definitely need some kind of carbs in each day or i just don't function optimally. avoid the simple ones for the most part. we can "quit" just about anything else in life "cold turkey" except....food. so the ongoing struggle for balance continues.

Peg: Your suggestions are spot on! Normally, I only eat one "complex" carb per day and that's my 1/2 medium or 1 small sweet potato with my turkey bacon and eggs. My brain needs a certain amount of carbs to function -- actually everyone's brain does -- and if I forego that carb in the morning, I will craze all kinds of shit during the day thus why I have to stay away from pretzels. They are a trigger food for me and shoots my glucose through the roof sometimes. It's weird. There is a saying I read somewhere that you should have breakfast like a king and dinner like a pauper -- in other words, eat your heavy meal in the morning and go lighter as the day goes on. And water.....drink lots of water. I've given up rice, bread, pasta, even oatmeal so the sweet potato is the only complex carb I eat. On occasion, I will go to McDonald's for that Southwest Chicken wrap. I miss the bagels and bran muffins. I try to stay focused on the "fibrous" carbs. Believe it or not, some people don't know the difference between complex and fibrous. We are helping people here. You've helped me...thanks.

Going to pipe in here, because this has helped me so much with my weight: never start the day with carbs; start the day with protein and/or fat. I have eliminated cereal(it gets easier), toast(fuck), and bagels(sob) from my morning routine, and it makes a huge diference. The carbs in the morning get your blood sugar/ insulin into a frenzy, and you will be fighting to keep them in balance for the rest of the day. Cereal makes you hungry again in two hours. If you want a cerealy fix, have slow-cooked steel-cut oats with some nuts or nut butter and/or an egg. You can also soak the oats overnight or put them in a slow-cooker. I throw all kinds of stuff in the slow cooker with them, and they are marvelous.

I always eat a fairly big breakfast of mostly protein and fat, even if in a pinch it is a piece of chicken or fish from the night before. If I make a smoothy it is with low-glycemic fruit like berries and melon, or apple, hemp protein powder, nuts, veggies an avocado and unsweetened almond or coconut milk.

Experiment with the protein/fat v. cereal in the morning; you will be amazed at the difference it makes in your hunger.

I also agree with Gina that there are no bad foods only bad eating habits. I eat whatever I want, whenever I want, but I have taught myself to make better choices most of the time.

PS - all this advice goes out the fucking window whenever I visit NOLA - where I pretty much mainline beignets round the clock. There is no bad time for a kilo of powdered sugar.
