What's your favorite breakfast? High or low fat?

Spence    Posted 08-02-2001 at 15:30:51       [Reply]  [No Email]
Coffee and toast until Saturday ........then

first the cholesterol pill then ...

2 EGGS, BACON (crispy, specially selected by me at the food mart. You can tell I've passed thru by the bacon packages all over the place. They never put the meaty ones on top.) COFFEE, PANCAKES w/BUTTER AND #2 MAPLE SYRUP (gotta tell you guys right now. Try the No 2 grade or medium maple syrup. You'll never go back. It's used for cooking in fancy resaurants and commercial uses. It could be a tad more expensive because of the added fuel needed for boil down. More maple flavor, darker and thicker!)

F14...Ooooooohhhhh, that's a tuff one...    Posted 08-02-2001 at 15:09:45       [Reply]  [No Email]
So many choices...

Half a dozen pancakes with real butter, maple syrple and a home-growed egg sunnyside up onna top is purty good.

A couple of eggs sunnyside up, bacon done crispy but not burnt, toasted homemade bread and raspberry jam certainly belongs on the list.

Steak and eggs is good too.

Coupla big glasses of OJ or grapefruit juice. And coffee. Lots of coffee, hot, blonde and sweet (everything my wife ain't...)

Pop! Huh? Whaaa? Oh, I wuz dreamin' again.

Cold cereal about 9 mornings out of ten, unfortunately.

Two large eggs over medium,one serving of oatmeal,twelve ounce glass of orange juice, one arthritis pill,one cup of coffee,and one pinch of Coppenhagan to get my heart started.

In winter, my favorite breakfast is a half-pound of broiled chuck steak, done very rare (blow its nose, wipe its hiney, and put it on my plate). In summer, my favorite breakfast is a tomato sandwich with mustard and mayonnaise. During haymaking, I fortify in the morning with a portion of crockpot casserole (cubed ham, sharp cheddar cheese, hash browns).

Definitely high fat: biscuits and gravy, both made from scratch!

Do you eat that every morning? If you do you'll out grow your britches.

Dreamweaver    Posted 08-02-2001 at 15:30:29       [Reply]  [No Email]
Not every morning Larry, and I can still squeeze into my 27/32 Levis thankyouverymuch! heehee.......

Stop it girl,you're making me dizzy. If I ate a breakfast like that I'd have to lay down and take a nap:-)

Pretty hard to beat a 3-egg omelet with ham, cheese and onions in it. Throw in some fried taters and home grown sausage to round it out.

Grill up a Moose steak, scramble up some eggs, couple pieces toast, cup a coffee and a big glass of OJ. Thats some GOOD eatin!

Joe- Start off with a fried sausage patty. When you take it out drop in one egg to fry while eating the sausage.

When about 3/4 thru eating the sausage turn off the heat, flip the egg, and get a slice of whole wheat bread going in the toaster.

When the toast pops up put a slice of American cheese on it, then put the egg over the cheese. Yummy stuff!

When I started doing this routine my cholesterol number improved. Go figger? IHank

Hi IHank!

You said, "Go figger?" Get the book Protein Power Lifeplan and it will completely change what you think about what to eat to stay healthy. The earlier book Protein Power is OK but my sis, ISU zoo major, TTU human physiology Phd, says the new book is better.

Quick explaination, sugar and things that quickly turn to sugar, carbs. esp. potato and other simple carbs, are THE ENEMY! They raise the blood sugar levels rapidly. Your body responds by producing more insluin. Insluin tells the cells, "take this sugar out of the blood! otberwise serious things can happen like DIEING!" Since the cells do not need the extra sugar for energy, it gets stored as fat. Real picture is more complex than this, but this is a first order approximation of what goes on.

I have a buddy that is/was a type II diabedic, 220# or 50# over weight. Since he has been following the Protein Power diet, more or less - he is ofter not well self disciplined. :-) He has lost 25# AND as long as he is careful of how much carbs he eats his blood sugar stays within normal ranges WITHOUT medication.

If you read the book and follow the diet (even if it is just the final or maintence deit) I expect you'll be on the board telling everyone else to get the book and follow it. :-)

The link is to the web site of the authors. If you have heard of the Atkins Diet you should read the letter (link to it on home page) by Drs. Eades to the USDA regarding the Atkins Diet.

Larry- I found a book & product peddling website...

But, the discussion here is making a big pile of good sense. When I went to the sausage & egg & cheese over a slice of whole wheat toast menu I quit the raisin bran and sugar and orange juice.

I neglected to mention it but the new breakfast includes unsweetened grapefruit juice instead of the orange juice.

I've got some lactose intolerance problems and some years before I switched from milk to cold water on the raisin bran. That somehow grossed out my wife and she'd gripe about it.

Anyway, my new life after the divorce included the high protein diet I described.

I'm hoping people will keep posting on this one, because I'm confident that our collective experiences told and shared will add up to some worthwhile to know information for all. IHank

I think that's part of my problem. I had my cholesterol check a few years ago,and it was 282.The reat of the numbers looked fine. the Doctor put me on a low fat diet. After three months i was checked again,still 282. Tried another three months,and this time it went up to 286,but my triglyceides went up to 305. The Doctor wanted me to take a blood surgar test.That's when I said the heck with it,and didn't go back.

Another good one is the Zone Diet, there's books on it by Barry Sears (sp?), MD. I can't follow it myself, since I could never force myself to give up eating a lot of breads and noodles, but supposably it's the bee's knees for healthy eating.

Ludwig    Posted 08-02-2001 at 15:17:12       [Reply]  [No Email]
Oh fer cryin out loud!
Theres only one good, safe, sustainable way to lose weight and keep it off.
I don't care if you're diabetic or what, its really simple.
Diet modification and excercise.
Thats it, you know whats good for you and McDonalds and Burger King isn't it.
You know you need to get the blobbo butt off the sofa and go for a walk.

I know its hard, I like the double chocolate donuts too, I like baked potatoes with lots of butter. I like bacon and burgers, in fact I like bacon burgers, and I can eat them and still lose weight.

But it means I need to get out and ride my bike or walk a whole bunch longer than if I'd had a ham sandwich with extra mustard.

Its not easy, but I've lost 18# in 3 months.
Sure its not as fast as the 'x' diet, but I feel good, I don't have to eat wierd stuff and its something I can sustain.

The way I keep the weight off is I eat whatever I want, but not a lot of it. If you eat till you feel stuffed, you're in trouble. I eat most anything, but small portions.......

Larry    Posted 08-02-2001 at 18:34:12       [Reply]  [Send Email]

That's what my problem is.I eat until I about tip over. That's why I weigh 190+ at 5'9",and I even have one leg missing.:-)

Larry- Thanks for your post and information. Mebbie it'll pull some mud outta the water for some of us. IHank

Phyllis    Posted 08-02-2001 at 07:18:10       [Reply]  [No Email]
I guess, if you don't count cold pizza, toast and oatmeal would be one of my favorites.
