This is a toughie, because it really depends on you what works, but instantly I can say Weet-bix is a no no. It’s processed AND you’re adding sugar to it.

For me to lose 30 kilos (I’m Aussie too), I cut out dairy and white starches from my diet and ultimately went on a low GI diet (the same diet people with PCOS and diabetes would go on), as well as restricted my diet down to 1200 calories (I’m short, fyi).

Also, I don’t eat any meats other than eggs, chicken/turkey breast (skin removed), and white fish. Red meat is full of calories and fats, and people over indulge in their portions of red meat anyway. And I replaced milk with almond milk (i don’t do soy, because that affects your hormones too).

My personal fave breakfast foods are:

1. Steal Cut or whole oats with blueberries and plain set yogurt. If you freeze the blueberries you can drop it in with the yogurt to cool down the oats when on the go. Note, don’t eat instant oats, they’re high in GI.

2. Egg white omlette with veggies and lentils

3. Green Monster shake (google it, you’ll find it :))

4. White bean salad with cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, beetroot (sparingly), a few kalamata olives and chopped fresh basil and a light drizzle of light dressing (lemon, olive oil, and herbs).

Plain yogurt and berries are a favorite of mine.

I’m a dietitian so I’d be happy to give you some quick advice…

vegemite on toast sound like a good option although I think a spread with a higher protein content would be a better option. Also, make sure the bread you are using is 100% whole wheat or contains at least 3g of fiber (or more) per serving

get rid of the added sugar – it’s empty calories. 

Another quick suggestion is to make sure you’re not to drinking your calories (I.e. soda, juice, etc).

I have been loving omlettes lately, they are so filling!

My favourite right now is 2 eggs with fat reduced salami, organic feta, onion, tomato and chilli flakes.
