I am wondering about breakfast and hunger and I'd be interested to hear if other people have similar experiences and what they do to deal with it.
I am improving my diet, which includes eating less (%10-%20 less I would say). I usually would have raisin bran for breakfast.
Lately I've experimented with having only protein for breakfast. It's great, I am not too hungry afterwards and can eat and reasonable lunch and feel full.
Today I ate raisin bran again and I was famished three hours afterwards. ( I also rode to work but it's only 5km). I just ate a large salad and an egg sandwich for lunch and I'm still REALLY hungry!
It's the effin bran!!!! If I neglect to eat breakfast (it's only happened a handful of times in my entire life) I don't get hungry. (don't worry I'm not going to stop eating in the morning).
What gives? What do other people eat for breakfast? That may be a funny question but I've eaten cereal my whole life...
Do other people experience a similar thing?
Also, I don't want to do a low-carb diet or anything. I just eat balanced and lots of vegetables and try to be moderate about junk/beer etc...
