Breakfast Carbs & Protein
« on: November 06, 2017, 11:30:26 AM »
Hi
Please could you advise approximate grams of carbs should be consumed at breakfast.  I am a little confused by the suggestions in the book as they range from 9g carbs for a slice of regular bread to 25g for an english muffin. Same for protein the suggestions range from 8g (large egg) to 15g (1/2 cup fat free cottage cheese) or 1oz (28g) for meat.

Hello!

This is really rough: breakfast protein 15 grams (have 2 eggs), lunch protein about 30g, dinner 10-15 grams on phase II and III.  Carbs 20-25g for breakfast (you can have 2 slices of bread) and 50-60 grams of carbs for dinner.  We tried to keep it simple by outlining the snack and meal program with every day foods rather than grams.  We found that overall, the amounts readers and clients take in balances out when choices are made, and people naturally eat quantities their body needs.  Following the rhythm of eating ultimately is the most important factor for long term weight loss and weight maintenance.  A few questions:

- are you losing weight?
- is your appetite controlled?
- do you feel hunger in the day?
- how is the quality of your sleep, any different compared to when you started the program?
- how is your energy level?
- how is your mood?
