  • Ok, so what about those of us who work OVERNIGHTS? I know we shouldn't eat before we go to bed, but I work 1900-0700 so when I get home it's 'breakfast time' but I am going to bed. Is our 'breakfast' then just whenever we wake up and get moving? Please advise!! Thank you! - 2/12/2011 1:14:47 PM
  • After reading this article, I now have an egg on the stove that I can eat in the morning with a piece of toast and peanut butter. I always have a cup of coffee and a banana when I get to my desk but, I am going to try hard to make sure that I eat something while getting ready. Lets see how this goes :) - 12/12/2010 11:54:50 PM

    I recently switched up my regular breakfast which includes 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries, .5 cup plain yogurt, 3 tbsp hemp hearts and 1 tbsp of ground flax seed.
    If you haven't tried hemp yet, it is delicious, filling and super nutritious. Kind of nutty but not over powering. - 12/12/2010 6:49:13 PM
    I really love the 0% Fage. I'm going to buy frozen fruit to add to the Fage. Fresh fruit is too hard to come by right now. - 12/12/2010 12:20:58 PM
  • I love breafast, but I have to be more intentional when I go to the grocery store. I usually plan what dinner will be each night while my lunch is just leftover dinner or add a salad to last nights main dish and the little one has lunch at school. I buy oatmeal and eggs but I soon run out of what I consider to be "breakfast food". I am definately going to be more intentional about buying "breakfast foods" when I go grocery shopping. - 12/12/2010 9:14:14 AM

  • I really feel for those people who cannot eat first thing in the morning without feeling ill. The first thought on my mind in the am is food. I'm ravenous after sleeping, since I eat a very smal meal at night. But for breakfast, I pour it on! Actually, I have two breakfasts, one before workout, one after. Usually cereal with fruit, protein shake, waffle, omelet, turkey sausages, ezekial bread with almond butter and hemp, hard boiled egg, I like to mix it up! - 12/12/2010 6:18:13 AM
    I have no problem with eating breakfast, its just I have to watch what I am eating... I LOVE breakfast! My problem is I can OVEREAT at breakfast or eat something so unhealthy, but I do find - I generally eat lighter the rest of the day if I eat a large breakfast (or lunch), so that must be a good thing, because hopefully if I have a good day and get some exercise in, I can burn some calories and stick to a healthy salad, and chicken for dinner. I just have to watch what I eat at breakfast, keep it healthy. - 10/29/2010 12:53:32 PM
  • Great article! Keep 'em coming :) - 10/29/2010 1:31:01 AM
  • My problem is I LOVE breakfast. But big breakfast- not just egg and toast- french toast, pancakes, waffles, bacon, chorizo and egg. I love it all, and can eat it anytime. - 10/28/2010 6:26:36 PM
  • I haven't been a breakfast eater, but am now having something almost every day thanks to the information I've read here! - 10/28/2010 4:12:23 PM
  • Thankfully I've always been a breakfast eater. In fact, I really can't function without at least SOMETHING in me. Usually it's multygrain toast with peanut butter and homemade jam or honey and orange juice. Sometimes I have an egg, or a little bit of yogurt. Sometimes it's cereal (which, despite being quick to pour, I find takes more time to actually EAT in the morning) --plus my tummy's often not happy with the cold milk in the morning, so cereal doesn't happen often. Sometimes I make some quick oatmeal, topped with cinnamon and fruit, and either a little pancake syrup or brown sugar. The more I eat in the morning, the more 'in-control' I am of my day's food intake. - 10/28/2010 11:50:09 AM
    It was an interesting read, but I do know all the reasons for having breakfast. Unfortunately, if I eat too soon after waking I get nauseus (even dry bread or just a cup of juice), and if I wait until I am hungry (the only way for me to avoid this) it's 9 or 10 or even 11 and I've been at work for hours. I try to keep healthy snacks in my desk, but if I'm not hungry... I'm not hungry. That's all there is to it. Are all of the possible positive side effects of having breakfast worth being nauseus every morning? I have a hard time believing it. - 10/13/2010 12:36:24 PM
  • I like breakfast food, but for far too many years I did not eat breakfast, Most of the time I only ate one or twice a day and packed on the pounds. My body stored everything I ate. I now eat breakfast withing 1 hr of getting out of bed. It can be anything, Breakfast, lunch or dinner food. I had to force my self and still do, but I am starting to get hungry in the am. I also try to eat most of my calories thru lunch and eat a lite snack and dinner. It seem to be helping to lose weight. I am still having trouble on some days getting in enough calories as I just don't get that hungry throughout the day and when I work out I really got to stuff my mouth and with the right kind of foods. It's a real struggle. - 10/6/2010 12:48:13 AM
