meals for weight loss

Mixed! I know I know... it sounds horrible doesn't it. But oatmeal and scrambled egg whites mixed together for the first meal of the day is absolutely delicious.

A lean protein and starchy carbohydrate for your first meal of the day is a great way to kick start your metabolism in the morning.

First thing in the morning our bodies are primed to use that starchy carbohydrate rather than store it.

When paired with a lean protein (which every meal of the day should have), the starchy carbohydrate's absorption is also slowed, inhibiting the fat storage process.

But a big no-no is adding sugar, milk, fruit or sugary sauces. These additions will destroy the fat losing power of this amazing first meal of the day.

Not ready for just plain 'ole egg whites and oatmeal?

Try some added flavors like:

- English toffee liquid stevia
- Vanilla liquid stevia
- Cinnamon or cinnamon stevia

To see a typical day of meals for me check out Meals for Weight Loss.

I love egg whites and oatmeal! I do this every morning for breakfast and it give me the energy I need to perform my best during my workouts!

Wonderful Curvinsam! I never get tired of it even though I have it each and every morning. It's one of my favorite meals.

With love,

This may be a silly question but do you cook the oatmeal? How do you prepare this breakfast and can it be done the night before?

There are no silly questions cms. :) I'm a firm believer the only silly one is the one not asked.

I do cook my oatmeal - in the microwave. I put the oats in a bowl and fill it with water enough until it covers all the oatmeal with a thin layer of water on top. I then microwave them on high for 2 minutes. Use a deep bowl or it will boil over. :)

And yes, it can be prepared the night before and heated up in the morning. You might have to add some water to the oatmeal before you reheat it to moisten it some.

With love,

Kristin

Kristin,
first of all, THANK YOU for creating the awesome community and sharing all your expertise and advice.
I participated in 2 competitions last fall, and while I didn't place in either, I achieved something that 9 months earlier I did not believe was possible for me - getting myself on stage!!
Your posts, blogs and community are helping me stay inspired, motivated and on task! :-)
Anyways, I also eat egg whites and oatmeal in the morning, but I also add half a scoop of protein powder to help with the taste.
Is that still acceptable? Want to make sure I'm not undermining my own efforts!

xoxo, Vivian
