Garry, I've gotta agree--more protein. I used to love a nice bowl of cereal w/bananas (or blueberries) but it just burns off so fast for me I'd be hungry almost before I left the house. It sounds like you're doing OK till snack time, though so perhaps you don't burn carbs so fast.

There are some higher fiber, lower simple carb cereals you might try. The banana is great--lots of potassium and fiber. How about switching down to skim while were talking breakfast?

I think I've mentioned before that I found my weight loss is best when I keep my carbs under 40% so I almost always eat a high protein/fat breakfast (2 eggs and either 2oz of lean steak/turkey sausage/bacon).

As to your "output", sounds like some more fiber wouldn't hurt that, either. I eat four to eight prunes every night for dessert--they taste great and are packed with fiber and potassium. I also have a giant salad before supper most nights which also helps "keep things moving". Oh, and of course, more water.

Really, 35 lbs in 8 weeks isn't bad, but I think you can do better.

Regards,
Michael
