    I know there are alot of breakfast threads here, but since everyone has different waking hours I would like a suggestion on how early should eat after waking up, and what would any of you suggest as a good breakfast? I wake up a little before 6 am and leave for work at around sometime around 7:15. I have other questions about lunch, dinner, and "snacking" between meals for later, but I would like a few suggestions on a breakfast this early, thanks.

    My breakfast consists of 10 egg whites scrambled in a frying pan with a little pam so it doesn't stick. A cup to a cup and a half of plain Quaker Oats microwaved with water. I add a little bit of cinnamon powder to it. 8z of grape fruit juice. 8oz caffeinated coffee no cream no sugar. A Piece of fruit. A few BCAA's, And a glass or two of water.

    It's not very appetizing, but I look forward to ir every morning since it's my biggest meal haha.

    With Respect,
    -Ray

    Most here will say eggs or egg whites. I try to eat eggs, if I have the time. I eat the yolks and all, scrambled up. Usually 3 - 4 of them.

    If not, I have whole wheat whole grain toast, occasionally with natural peanut butter.

    I usually go with an omlett as it's good nutrition and there are lots of ways to tweak it with different veggies, cheeses etc. Last weekend I tried asparagus and goat cheese with a bit of salsa. Kind of like a cream cheese omlett but healthier.

    So is the egg white only thing a myth?

    Egg white only can lead to egg white injury.

    Rolled oats with butter and ground flax seed and scrambled eggs. An orange and/or banana and a cup of coffee.

    How I roll for what it's worth.

    Alright that sounds pretty decent, I didn't really want to go that route of " this amount of this", "whatever cups of whatever, and mix it up and count the calories and weigh the cup" bullshit.

    oh god I would shoot myself it I ever considered doing that


    Although this is the UK, hard to get a gun.
    I'd probably just go to london and pretend to be the KKK, that'd get the job done

    Alright, about how long after breakfast should you eat a "snack" or whatever?

    Eat breakfast when you get up, that's the start of your day. I normally work nights, and wake up at noon or shortly after. That's when I eat breakfast. If I'm working days and have to get up at 3am, then that's when I eat breakfast. Pretty simple really. Adjust your eating to your schedule.

    I eat about 6 times a day.

    First meal within 30 mins of waking up, then every 2-3hrs after that till right before bedtime.

    My usual breakfast is oatmeal (not instant) with chocolate protein powder or natural PB mixed in and 1/2 a grapefruit, and water.

    Then it's all adding or subtracting things to get whole balanced nutrition during the rest of the day.

    people assume just because i eat well i do this (and i never do). then they use that as an excuse not to eat healthy - saying they don't want to have to measure everything like some robot. :rolleyes:

    Breakfast is currently the only meal of the day that is somewhat carb heavy. While the rest of the day is made up of lean protien and veggies, breakfast is a time of joy with tuna melts, fruit smoothies and coffee. Oh, glorious coffee...

    Thanks alot for the advice everyone, thats all I really needed to know. I've never really been a breakfast person so I
    'll start being one. To Mehwulfe, I'm really just trying to lose weight and eat healthy, and I work out at night. and to likkuid, I really do want to eat healthy, I was just saying I would like to do it without having to count every calorie and seving amount I eat, again thanks everyone.
