Do you eat breakfast? If so, what do you usually have?

Breakfast has been one of the most controversial meals in any social circle I've been in. Some people insist on eating it daily, as it's quite important, others skip it almost always and just have lunch and dinner, still others eat 5+ meals a day which no doubt means one of them is breakfast.

If you only want 2000 cals a day, skipping breakfast does make sense because you can eat just two 1000 cal meals a day. That's not magic.

I usually make protein pancakes each morning. The recipe makes about 8 but sometimes I don't eat them all. They're rather filling, so sometimes I have enough left over for tomorrow's breakfast. If I don't have the ingredients, though, I may grab some cereal and eat that instead.

It's up to the individual. Gender, age, lifestyle, BMR, etc. Personally I do a protein shake shortly after waking up and an egg/sausage/cheese scrambler of sorts shortly after arriving at work with a yogurt/probiotic drink to boot.

I'm big on oatmeal. I usually eat a sandwich with it

I've gone round and round with breakfast too. I know this - a big fatty breakfast makes me feel worse. Bacon, eggs, biscuits, hash browns, pancakes and all that stuff, while good, just gives me heartburn and makes me want to lay on the couch all day. Cereal does too. About the only thing I've had any success with is fruit (usually a banana or grapes) or a fruit/vegetable smoothie, or maybe a nut/banana smoothie. If not that, I just skip it altogether. I've never enjoyed getting up and cooking/eating in the morning, nor am I a morning person, so I try to take in all my healthy nutrients in the morning, because it's going to be brutal anyway. Afterwards, it makes me feel like I've accomplished something and I don't have to quite as health conscious the rest of the day.

Once a week I also try to fast until dinner. Cutting breakfast is always easy, lunch is much tougher.

The problem, for me, with totally skipping breakfast everyday is that I am always hungrier at lunch and overeat.
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

Yeah, a meal prep casserole of: Bacon, Sausage, Cheese, Hash Browns, Eggs and gravy. It is not super healthy, but it is easy to consistently eat everyday. I eat a healthier lunch and skip dinner. This schedule works better for me than skipping breakfast and I'm in a better mood at work.

I've eaten the same breakfast for the past 5 years: 3 eggs (swallowed raw), plain oatmeal with unsweetened almond milk, and coconut brown sugar.

I eat the same breakfast every date: oatmeal mixed with m with ground cinamon, honey, and peanut butter. I also grab a medium sized apple and a handful of almonds. About a week ago I discovered canned sardines in water so started adding those too. I’m usually stuffed and good for about 5 hours.

Usually do eggs and a organic fruit smoothie, my local grocer has a organic bag of fruit for 10 bucks so I blend that up, throw in some vitamin C powder.

Nothing I hate more than the same routine in my nutrition plan. I have to have variety. So long as I get the cals/macros in for the day I’m good.

Some days I skip breakfast, split a big lunch and then dinner.

Other days I make a 1200 calorie protein shake for breakfast, have a light lunch and a big dinner.

Some days it’s a light breakfast made up of a variety of fruits, some OJ/apple juice, big lunch, light dinner.

Some days I go all out for breakfast: 3 or 4 eggs, couple pieces of bacon, diced up potatoe and a cup of oatmeal with a little honey.

I've trained my mind in such a way that I can eat the same meals everyday and not get bored. I do make slight variations from time to time. I eat my breakfast around 1pm everyday. I've lost 60lbs this last year just from walking 3-5 miles a day, 4-6 times a week and eating healthy maybe 5 days out of the week.

Breakfast:

1 egg yolk
5-6 egg whites-Sometimes I add veggies or meat with my eggs
4-5 olives
Handful of pretzels, crackers or wheat thins
Big spoonful of hummus or greek yogurt
Few slices of cheese (sometimes)

This is a good idea, as I'm tiring of my fruit/vegetable smoothies in the morning again. I've been doing just a banana or a couple boiled eggs lately because I've been lazy, and I need to do a little more. Eggs or banana with hummus or yogurt sounds awesome.

The problem is for me is simply forcing down ANY food in the morning, when I'm in a hurry. I have quit skipping breakfast so this is more critical for me now. I've noticed my guts get all weird and my morning sh*ts are nastier if I don't eat breakfast. Strange, I know, but there is something natural about breaking the fast in the morning.

I think fasting is meant to be for more than 1-2 meals, if you are going to do it.

I intermittent fast. First meal is at 10:30/11am

16oz of water with pink salt upon rising.
Decaf coffee afterwards with creatine in it then do a fasted workout.

——Wait until eating window ——-

have a protein shake and 1 giant bowl of oatmeal, with berries, hemp oil, hemp hearts, and ground flax. This totals all my daily carbs - (110g)

I find that the less complex carbohydrates (breads, potatoes) I intake in the morning the better I feel cognitively speaking. I’ll normally do a combo of something like eggs or steak, maybe some Greek yogurt or just a protein shake (sometimes I’ll add in some olive oil) if I’m in a hurry. I’ll build my carbohydrate intake around my training sessions which are typically at night.

If you train in the early morning you’ll want to make sure you’re getting some carbs post workout. Which will mean carbs for breakfast.
