  • And I definitely agree..... too many carbs on the suggested breakfast list and too much wheat and soy!! - 10/28/2011 11:35:41 AM
  • Somehow over the years (maybe working second shift and coming home at midnight for many years) my "clock" is set for a 12 hr "fast" between 12-1am to 12-1pm.... So "lunch" is my first meal of the day. Eating breakfast actually triggers me to eat more during the day, regardless of what it is, rather than less. I know all the scientific studies you quote, but my body is "programmed" a different way. So to get some protein on board, I have started with my first drink of the day as beef or chicken broth. I found some yesterday in the health food section that isn't loaded with sodium and chemicals. And I added a 1/2 cup of "StirFry Vegetables" - the calories are only 30, but the nutrition is high and I feel great! And if I haven't eaten late, I will add a boiled egg which I keep on hand in the refrigerator all the time. Anyway, know the statistics, but some of us who have worked shift work or are "owls" by nature run on a different "clock." - 10/28/2011 11:24:16 AM
  • My sons are in high school and I still refuse to let them leave the house in the morning without eating. The elder has started experimenting to see which breakfast choices make him feel the best and "last" the longest. Losers? Anything with too much starch and sugar - toaster strudel, burritos, toast and oj, etc. Winners? Anything with protein and fat - eggs, green peppers with cream cheese, cheese sticks, etc. The starchy crap leaves him ravenous within a couple of hours but the substantial food lasts close to lunchtime.

    @INSULINWARRIOR - "Wheat Council" - LOL, I've often thought the same thing. - 10/28/2011 8:26:18 AM
    Interesting article but, as with most articles on breakfast, your suggestions read as though they have been paid for by the wheat council. I know the soy protein shake is in there but those of us who are genuinely overweight (not just needing to lose 10-15 pounds) already get so much oestrogen from our fat cells that drinking soy milk is not healthy.
    Those of us who can't eat grains, for the many reasons there are not to, breakfast can really only be left overs unless we have the time and inclination to slave over the stove at 6am. Some less obvious breakfast suggestions would make the article more than a 'tsk tsk' and provide some new information. - 10/28/2011 5:13:17 AM
  • 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
    Coffee: The miracle beverage, elixir, high...

    I'm on some right now!

    Wheeeeee! Nothin' like Starbucks Italian Roast! - 12/12/2010 8:27:24 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
