Robin, what does your husband eat for breakfast? I was going to put some berries in a blender with soy beverage and some flax seeds. Have a great day.
Yup, food is the hard part. And Excercise. I find that if I don't eat a substantial breakfast I'm doomed for the day. I usually go for: 1 cup of whole grain cereal of some type, and add some fruit. Bananas, blueberries( my favorite) or something. (I look for cereal with less than 10 grams sugar per cup, though the recommendation is generally less than 5 gms.) If I don't have fruit I add yogurt. If I'm in a hurry, I eat leftover meat (like turkey), or some cheese.
Carolyn: Very interested in the info on Setpoints. I think I've been at one since last September.

See above regarding breakfast. ~The~ most important meal! Actually, I can do 1000-1200 pretty easily, but under that doesn't do me any favors.
But now it's that weekend, & it's a minefield out there! Gotta run....
