    Sometimes I purposefully make leftovers at dinner that I can have specifically for breakfast. An extra fish fillet is made and put immediately into a container and into the fridge so it's there for tomorrow. I have other things ready for lunches. You just have to be prepared, do things differently, plan ahead and not just wait until the last minute all the time.

      Slices of frittata. (Casserole style).

      Just keep cold cuts of meat (brisket, etc) in the fridge.

      Also... Can't he cook? ...I am confused. O_o

      He can cook but on work days he likes to get ready fast, making coffee and heating milk is about as long as he wants to spend in the kitchen. He usually makes me breakfast on the weekends.

        My current breakfast is One scoop of plain whey protein (25g) mixed with coffee, hwc and stevia. An omelette made with 2xl eggs (14g), 4 oz of 99% fat free ground turkey (27g), peppers onions and mushrooms cooked in coconut oil. I like to get half of my protein intake (130g) at breakfast. Getting that much protein in so early became much easier when I discovered the lean ground turkey.

          Thanks Pebbles, your omelette sounds a lot like the meat muffins I make.

            Cottage cheese is out (lactose intolerance), egg whites are out (egg white sensitivity) for me. I've started trying this (my hunger seems to be changing, bonus!). For the past 2 days I have had a 10oz 93% burger with a piece of cheese melted on it for "breakfast", which is about 10 AM. I'm not sure I can eat any earlier than that.

              Protein is consistently recommended as the main macro when losing weight, so this doesn't really surprise me.

              Yesterday my son and I were visiting some vegetarian friends and this is what the mom made for her family (husband and 2 teenage boys) home fries with grated mild cheddar cheese (made from organic whole potatoes) white rice and frozen carrots, peas and corn with organic margarine. Probably about 80% carb, 15% fat and 5% protein. I really don't know how those boys can live off that. The dad says the older boy is always hungry. For the record the dad is a better cook and when he cooks he serves some sort of vegetarian protein, but he usually gets home later so he often doesn't cook.

              I used to talk to the mom about paleo (she says she's open to eating meat), she wants to lose weight but now I don't even bother. She doesn't seem to understand basic nutrition. The funny thing is she's not dumb or young, she's 50 and educated, it just baffles me how some one can be that misinformed.
              For more anecdotes:

              One of my cousins is almost vegetarian. He barely eats any meat, most of his diet carbs in the form of wheat and rice. He's around 12 just now. When I last saw him he was just fat. He's taken up rugby and now he is definitely more muscular but still fat.
              My cousins brother eats a normal diet (closer to CW) and is low muscle but low fat. He plays soccer.

              Meanwhile my brothers eat a high protein diet (also high in carbs and fat since they have big appetites). They both also do rugby. Both my brothers are way above average height, low boy fat and muscular. My 7 year old brother can pass for 9. Both of them are projected to be 6'2.

              Conclusion? I'm not gonna make anything sweeping but protein seems like the key to leanness. I'm convinced my cousin is fat because of his high carb, low fat, low protein diet.

                I think a lot of people don't eat enough protein. I remember starting primal and devouring a roast chicken, standing in my kitchen. I had been a vegetarian for a long time, and can't remember too many meals that made me say "done" the way a steak or big portion of chicken can. Last night after a hard workout, I had a 1/3 lb wagyu burger very rare topped with bacon, avocado and a fried egg. This was a brutal workout. That food filled me up, no hunger even this morning.

                It seems like there is such a big social "nono" for people, especially women, to eat food like this. Like it's gross, manish or something a guy would eat. I still feel weird tucking into a fatty steak. I'm getting there, lol. The guys at the meat counter know that YES, I want the big rib eye. It is "heavy" food and people comment on that, but it makes me feel 100x better than "light" foods.

                Vegetarianism.... there is a lot of good tenets, but at the end of the day, I was never satisfied no matter how much I ate of the low fat stuff, and anything higher in fat just made me feel like hell.

                  I'm surprised at the low protein content of chain restaurant and packaged meals even if the first word is "beef" or "chicken". The industry is adept at fluffing up 1~2 oz. to look good with a bun or noodles.

                    200g protein a day...and a couple of doses of X.

                    But mostly the protein!

                      I find that eating an early high-protein breakfast is a huge help to me in combating sugar or carb cravings (which I've been having again lately thanks to a recent collapse of all my high standards). If I can get that first shot of protein in right away, it's far easier to eat a healthy primal lunch and dinner.

                      If I don't... *shudder*

                        Then you left out a lot of good stuff....
                        and: avocados are high in fat.

                          Today's protein so far:

                          1 scoop whey: 24g
                          1/5 of a Trader Joe's pork tenderloin with gelatinous beef broth: hopefully 24g
                          Next up will be 5oz tuna: 26g

                          Dang, I'm going to fall short yet again. It is really very hard to get a lot of protein.

                            Started with 14oz turkey tenderloin, right around 95 gram protein. Will finish with some 93/7 grassfed ground beef tonight, should end up right around 190 grams.

                              So are most people getting a lot of protein by supplementing with whey powder? Otherwise it seems like it is hard to get a lot of protein without a lot of accompanying fat. Unless you go with skinless poultry.

                              Sbhikes, if you omit the scoop of powder, then you are at about 1/3 of your goal for the day. I would find it hard to imagine eating three cans of tuna and three pork tenderloins in a day (or more to hit my number).

                                1% cottage cheese. Egg whites. Tuna.

                                I eat a lot of cottage cheese. It is easy because I love that stuff. Used to hate it but I got addicted to it when I did CW healthy (cottage cheese, chicken breast, spinach salad, oatmeal). Then I forgot I loved it for a whole year when I went primal and recently refound my love for it.


                                Cottage cheese + fruit 👌👌👌
