Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.
Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine
Stick to gluten free cereals, raw milk if possible and eat your sushi once a week. Nothing wrong with white rice. Ask for gluten free soy sauce or tamari and that's that
My DH lost 50 lbs over 6 months on a diet that was only about 50% primal and definitely not low carb (I guessing 50% cals from carbs?). It was painless for him because nobody was telling him what to eat. And painless for me because all I did was cook primal dinners. At this point he's more like 75% primal, maintaining easily and happy as a clam.
I wouldn't sweat breakfast at this point. Don't borrow trouble.

Don't put your trust in anyone on this forum, including me. You are the key to your own success.
There's nothing wrong with a bit of sushi, unless he's intentionally trying to be low-carb (is he?).
Regarding cereal, we've decided that it's a battle we don't want to fight with our kids, so we have cornflakes, ricies and porridge for them, as well as the option of the cooked bacon/eggs/liver/mushrooms/spinach that we have.
I don't think there's anything wrong with your husband having a cereal that's gluten free and not loaded with sugar.
Disclaimer: I eat 'meat and vegetables' ala Primal, although I don't agree with the carb curve. I like Perfect Health Diet and WAPF Lactofermentation a lot.

TQP: I find for me that nutrition is much more important than what I do in the gym.
