thanks everyone. I ended up just having a late night snack when I got home from work. Tuna and brown rice with some strawberries. That held me over until I could eat again at 1300. Drank lots of water before the gym and after the gym to replace breakfast.

Skip breakfast. Drink plenty of water. The fasting relates to food intake.

When I have to do a fasting blood sugar test I get an earlier appointment when possible. when not I don't stay up late and snack twelve hours prior that would mess up my eating schedule more. I take it as a treat day on my calories and eat something that I normally would not be able to afford calorie wise like liver cheese or bacon wrapped cheese jalapeņos.

I agree. Making up the calories could cause you to overeat and one day is not going to destroy you. Are you allowed to drink water?

I would suggest a late night snack (perhaps protein based) to get you through the fast, and just move on to lunch after the blood test without "making up the calories".

Guys, I have a dilemma. I am having blood work done tomorrow at 1215. I need to fast for 12 hours. Here is the dilemma...how do I eat breakfast? before midnight or skip it altogether and make up the calories with the other meals?
