see photo on screen in bright sun
I just spent time on the North Carolina Outer Banks sand dunes. The sun was very bright. I was unable to see the photos and the histograms on the back screen. I just bracketed . As a result had a number of markedly underexposed photos. I thought of a hood of some type. "Auto" over exposed all the photos. Any other ideas. Never had the problem before.

The free option is to crank up the brightness on your LCD.
If that does not help enough, something like the Hoodman Loupe works great (while a little pricey).

Living in the arid Arizona Southwest (Tucson), I like you have problems seeing the LCD screen on my D7000 when I'm photographing outside during the day. I don't, however, experience many problems with overexposure and don't generally try to reference the histogram screen in the field.
It sounds like you might need to bias your exposures down a bit using the exposure compensation button.
