Unfortunately not. It's because I tend to eat too much in the evenings... I know that if I ate only the right amount at night I'd be hungry for breakfast in the morning. This is one of the hardest issues for me to tackle...

It varies. I used to wake up ravenous every morning. I think it has a lot to do with what I eat the night before. There are times where I wake up hungry, but those morning usually follow nights where I didn't have a well-rounded dinner or ate earlier in the evening. On weekdays, I have pre-breakfast at 7:30 and breakfast around 9. I usually have "brunch" on weekends since I sleep in until 8:30 or 9.

For me, it depends on the day. Some mornings I wake up and my stomach is growling and I can't wait to eat. Other days it takes about an hour for me to be hungry.

I am not hungry when I wake up, but usually put away about 700 calories anyways. If you feel hungry something is wrong. You still need to fuel your body though.

I don't wake up hungry. I found that having a good snack in the late evening helps mesleep better. In the morning I get hungry about about 90 minutes after getting up. I typically start food or more often tea or coffee an 45-60 min after getting up.

I almost always wake up hungry. If I'm not hungry when I wake up I probably ate way too much the night before.

Depends on how late I ate the night before. Mostly just coffee.

I don't wake up hungry. I usually have coffee, and then I exercise. And then I'm hungry and my breakfast tastes SO good. (Let me comment here that my exercise is walking; I am not doing a 10 mile run or anything that might drop my blood sugar too low, with no food.)

I don't wake up hungry, but I also don't think about eating breakfast, I just do it.

As for the original question, the only time I wake up hungry is if I haven't eaten enough the day before, particularly in the evening.

When I have to work daylight on the weekends and wake up at 5:30 in the morning i am STARVING!

When I work night shift and wake up at 2:00 in the afternoon, I am not hungry at all.

Breakfast for me is a habit, although, the first thing when I wake up I have a cup of hot tea. Then about an hour later, I have breakfast.

Most mornings I do, but i find it also depends on what and what time I eat the night before.

I never used to when I didn't eat breakfast. I would just drink coffee all morning and then have lunch at 11-12.

Now that I eat breakfast, I'm hungry first thing in the morning. Unfortantly for me, my kids have decided for the last 2 weeks that 5-5:30am is time to wake up. So it's totally messing with my eating schedule. I don't want to eat first thing because then I have to go longer stretches between my 5 meals a day. So the last two days I started my workout earlier. Yesterday, I had a tea first and then I wasn't hungry and I worked out, showered and then had breakfast. Today I had to take my son to his bus at 9am and I actually didn't feel at that hungry first thing. So after I made them their breakfast I started my workout at 6:30am and finished up at 7:30am. Then I got them dressed, teeth and hair brushed etc. while my breakfast was cooking and then had breakfast at 8am. Now I'm back from dropping my son off and going to finish up my workout with some upper body ST. Shower, do a few things around the house and then have my morning snack at 11ish.

I like doing my workouts first thing, it feels nice to have it out of the way and I feel all limber for the morning. It's a good change.

I am usually not hungry within the first hour or so of waking up, but eating breakfast is a habit. If I don't eat breakfast, I get nauseous and really cranky fast!

I love waking up hungry. Or rather, I dislike waking up not hungry because it makes me feel like I ate too much the evening before. Eating breakfast is supposed to be healthy, so it feels good to want it.

its uncommon that I wake up and am hungry its more common that i wake up and forget that I've not eaten anything until my glucose levels bottom out or my mate asks me have I had breakfast yet.

I can and have gone most of the day without having any food, maybe half a cup of coffee but other then that nothing for a full 6 to 8 hours - its not good nor healthy to do so but it happens several times a week (past 4 days actually)

If I have an omlette for my dinner, it keeps me overnight really well. I must have the protein though.

When I first started SP, I was hungry all.the.time. When I went to bed. Wake up during the night. First thing in the morning.... I thought I might eat my arm off emoticon

Then I learned things like good fats and proteins have more satiating power. I learned which foods fill me up more. I usually have dinner around 5:30 or 6, and that usually ties me over for the next 16 hours before I break fast. Sometimes I break fast sooner, and sometimes I have an evening snack after dinner, but I never (at least hardly ever) wake up hungry anymore and both arms are in tact! emoticon

Depends. Usually, I have to think about breakfast, but every so often, I'll wake up ravenous. It has a lot to do with what I had the night before. If I have a protein-light dinner (such as vegetarian spagetti, pasta and tomato sauce, no meat) I'll usually be hungrier sooner the next day.

When you wake up are you hungry or do you have to think about eating breakfast?
