I have this too and have often said it's like mild morning sickness! Interesting that so many others with PCOS share this same 'symptom'.

I find if have a full glass of water with my d-chiro-inositol, green tea and vitex in the morning, that's fine and in an hour or two I am hungry and can enjoy breakfast. I usually have a protein smoothie, so I make it up around then, then it's ready for whenever I'm hungry.

From what I've read recently, the current opinion on skipping breakfast is that it only becomes relevant if you later over-eat as you become ravenous. It still comes down to total caloric intake at the end of the day.

If only they'd make up their minds once and for all and stick to it! :)

Bonadebi, if you eat small meals that contain some kind of protein throughout the day, you will be able to keep your blood sugar more balanced. I used to not eat breakfast, either, and I would pig out at lunch, etc. But I do eat breakfast now. I can't really stand anything sweet like doughnuts or cereal. I want protein. Even if you eat a boiled egg and a piece of whole-grain toast, it will help keep your blood sugar stable. If I work out in the morning, I will get up and have a smoothie with some plain yogurt, spinach, cranberries, strawberries, flaxseeds, chia seeds, and some molasses in it. It's about 12-16 ounces altogether. I drink it driving into town. (I have a 29-minute drive to work in the morning, and my gym is near my work.) Then after working out, I have a second breakfast -- just like the hobbits. It is something with protein because my muscles need protein to rebuild after exercise. So maybe I have a boiled egg and a piece of whole-grain toast or something along those lines. Then I eat lunch, then a snack, then dinner, then maybe a second snack. I eat the calories recommended on my tracker, but I spread them out over the day. I also tend to eat more proteins than recommended because I am insulin-resistant and don't really get into a lot of carbs. But my blood sugar stays pretty steady throughout the day and the nausea I used to get is non-existent unless there is really something wrong with me, such as a virus.

I often get this for several days with PMS. I find it helps to eat something small and it will go away. Good luck.

Same goes for me... Not sure what brings it on either. Sometimes the smell of food makes me sick to my stomach as well. Then it passes and I'm fine.. I thought it was something with hormones since it does feel a lot like morning sickness while pregnant.

I always feel nauseous in the mornings which makes it hard to eat. However, if I don't eat then I just get sicker and sicker. So I've found that the easiest things to eat while feeling nauseous are juicy things like fruit or cereal with lots of milk. They are easier to get down than dense, thick foods. Also, if I eat a snack right before I go to bed, then I don't feel as nauseous the next morning, but if I eat an early dinner and nothing else then I will feel more sick in the morning.

I have it every once in awhile, too_ but it usually has to do with the quality of sleep I get the night before.

That has been my biggest problem. I never ever eat breakfast because I don't feel well enough to eat it. Then by the time lunch comes around I'm starving so I over eat. Then the guilt of over eating sets in and I either skip dinner or eat something extremely tiny. I know I have bad eating habits, but I never suspected them of causing my morning sickness. I can't wait to see if it helps.

I, too, have had that happen for quite a while - even to the point that brushing my teeth would make me gag. And when we were actively trying to get pregnant I would get excited. But I've never really thought about why it was happeneing, although I can say that it does depend on what (or when) I ate. If I don't ahve a little snack before dinner (even just a piece of cheese is enough) I will be sick when i wake up in the morning and then not want to eat breakfast.

That has actually been happening to me for years. It is like morning sickness only it doesn't go away in nine months. I have found through the years that if my blood sugar gets too low it triggers the nausea and it depends on what I eat for breakfast so now there are certain things that I just don't eat in the morning and that seems to help me. I know when I was on metformin if I didn't eat enough food when I took it I would get even more nauseous.
Good luck!

Pretty much every morning when I wake up I'm feeling nauseous. I really don't understand why. It's been going on for about a year now. And no I'm not pregnant....(wish I was). Sometimes I get nauseous through out the day too. But that doesn't happen as much as the morning episode. Does anyone else have this happen? What in the world could it be?
