Welcome to all readers. 

I am 73 years old and working at being in nutritional ketosis á la Jimmy Moore of Livin La Vida fame.

It's never too late to change your life for better.

  1. That breakfast needs to improve! It's the most important meal of the day, you need more than coffee!!!!! Get some protein in that precious body. :-)

  2. You eat pretty much as I do! I usually have coffee and cream for breakfast and don't have a proper meal till lunchtime - I really don't feel like eating in the morning, or more truthfully, I never feel like cooking in the morning. But I am ready for an early lunch. We are pretty much of an age - I am fast closing in on 70! As you say, it's never too late to change for the better.'

  3. Me three! Never did enjoy a big breakfast. But cream in my coffee is very satiating til lunch.

    And I've read a lot of places that it's a myth that insists everyone needs a big breakfast (not talking about those who need to eat at a regular time for medical reasons). Just 2 days ago I read a post where he was talking about the "advantage" of not eating til later, if ones goal is fat loss, because it extends the natural "fast" of not eating all night. Hence, the break-fast is simply later, and allows a longer time for blood sugars to settle down and let the glucose in the body be all used up, allowing for fat burning. (wow, that was sure a run-on sentence). Anyway, I found it interesting, and if nothing else, I felt better about not cramming food in my mouth when not hungry first thing in the morning, LOL!!

    Hope you get a nice nights sleep.

  4. Oh wow! It's so good to know that I'm not the only one who thinks 'breakfast' is not essential. Even when I was having a so-called proper breakfast I liked to get a head start on the days chores first. In the long ago days when I was young, fit and slim, my first food of the day came at morning break at work. Now I am learning to understand and accept the way my body works I eat when I'm hungry most of the time and if I'm hungry earlier in the day I'll eat earlier. I tend to believe that breakfast is breakfast whatever time of day you choose to break your fast after sleeping through.

    I do understand June's concern though because coffee and cream looks terrible to anyone who believes Weight Watchers. Unfortunately they never worked for me.

    For many years I had a protein shake/smoothie for breakfast but I went dairy free a while back and somehow it no longer appeals. I'm thinking of having a smoothie sometimes but not until I'm properly ketone adapted, meaning burning fat for energy rather than depending on sugars from carbohydrates. It's beginning to look as though it might take a week or so for this to happen.

    Blessings all.
