    g0mrl thats how I use to be before diabetic attitude towards breakfast I use to be 5ft 3 and 12 st 5 lbs and now 26st 12 lbs took me a long time to do breakfast but even if an hour after waking its better than none and the reason you are so hungry is you probably arent eating enough in reality you could be making things a whole heap worse Please try a month with small breakfast and see if it makes a difference Others might have over views but would hate to see you walk the path I did with my weight :(

    LCW sounds delicious

    oh MCMLXXIII is thats what it is call or is that the name you have given it ?? good name tho

    still sounds YUMMY :lol:

    If you have the time to source foods, experiment and test, meals can be very good. Always best to prepare everything yourself if you don't trust the labelling. But, time is the key and unfortunately, not everyone has time. Smoked haddock is good too. I like kippers but they can be fiddly to eat. Boiled eggs cut in half with an anchovy on each piece, yum.

    Still miss toast and marmelade though :-(

    Florentine, lent from an Italian pizza, where a fresh egg is cracked and baked in the middle ;-)

    Vicky - thanks for your post. My weight has been very stable for several years, but I would love to weigh a stone or so less. I have struggled with this for years, but weight loss has been negligable. I just can't work out why breakfast is so sacrosanct. Varying my breakfast is about the only opportunity to take some sort of action; in particular I can do something positive about an unusually high blood sugar reading as and when it occurs (I normally only do blood sugar readings before breakfast). I might mention that I almost never have a full breakfast - the norm is a piece of toast or a bowl of low or sugar-free cereal. Perhaps 25% of the time I cut it out completely beause I'm not happy with my morning blood sugar.

    I seem to be going over the same ground again. I'll shut up!

    Hi thanks for the tips ,

    I am using small packet of plain quaker oats as follows
    Semi skimmed milk in saucepan stir with wooden spoon
    As milk heats stir in a tablespoon of onken plain yoghurt
    A teaspoon or less Splenda sweetener
    As milk comes to boil, put oats into milk
    Stir for 2 mins

    This seems to produce a creamier porridge

    Wipe inside cooled saucepan with kitchen roll

    Leave saucepan to be washed later

    Nice, but if you watch Deep blue sea LL Cool J states that a three egg omelette being better than a two is a "mistake":lol:

    I rarely eat breakfast. If I did it wouldn't be any form of cereal[ too much carb!] let alone porridge, which I loathe.
    An egg scrambled in the microwave is as quick and much better for blood glucose.
