30 grams protein for breakfast

Tuesday, September 27, 2011

So I've been trying the '30g protein within 30 mins of waking up' thing, from 'The 4-hour body'. Except I generally wait longer than 30 mins. But still. After 30g protein for breakfast, I am then not hungry for the rest of the day. No cravings for junk food at all. So weird. I kind of miss craving for junk food - Doritos and Haribo were so exciting back in the day!

    Hey. I am doing that too. But my book said within 1 hour of getting up. And it does stop some of those cravings. I can tell a difference if I skip my morning protein.

    Curious if part of your 30 grams is coming from Greek Yogurt? I have this container of Fage 2% Greek strained yogurt (yummy!) and for 1 cup serving, it's 23 g of protein!! Just for the one serving of yogurt! So it wouldn't take much else to pimp it up to 30 g, I"m sure - maybe nuts and some fruit??

    And I know what you mean about missing junk food...not sure about Haribo since I'm not sure what it is... but chips and chocolates and ice cream go down for me!!

    emoticon on the 30 gram breakfast, though! takes a while to get into that being "hungry within 30 minutes" of waking up - I think that's where some quick vigorous activity is supposed to take place but I tend to like to do my long walks before breakfast.
