Reasons to Make A.M. Eating a Habit


  • 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
  • Thank you for the very interesting post..!! I recomend The Zone diet book of Dr. Sears. - 10/4/2010 8:12:39 PM
    Quote: "Skipping breakfast triples the blood’s clot-forming potential—and the risk of morning heart attacks and strokes."

    Okay that freaks me out, I will eat breakfast. - 10/4/2010 4:51:20 PM
  • I really appreciated the information in this article. Although I was eating breakfast, I was eating it late in the morning. I recently learned that breakfast should be eaten within an hour of you waking up, for the same reasons listed in this article. Especially the part about your body fasting for 10 to 12 hours. I have to say I saw a difference right away. So I try to eat breakfast before leaving for work in the morning instead of waiting until I get to work. - 10/4/2010 10:11:05 AM
  • I have two go to breakfast meals, oatmeal with fruit and coffee and an egg, with toast. Now that I am retired, I have the time to prep my meals, all of them, so I am not rushed and can work in the fruit and veggies. - 10/4/2010 9:48:43 AM
  • Awesome article. I have been eating breakfast for the past two weeks and I have noticed changes in my weight and my energy. - 10/4/2010 9:23:09 AM
  • I am one with the early meal. I can tell when I am really on my game because breakfast becomes -- steel-cut oats (slow cooked), with golden raisens, topped with a banana and Silk (soy milk). Now that winter is just around the corner, this is a much easier sell. In the summer, with the heat --- I am pressed. - 10/4/2010 12:53:54 AM
  • I was a non breakfast eater for many years and this healthy habit was really hard for me to adopt. I have been eating (or rather drinking) protein shakes made with light soymilk, frozen fruit and soy protein powder. I know this is one of the reasons I have now been successful with my weight loss now. I still am not much for other traditional breakfasts, my stomach still doesn't like really solid foods too early (far to many years of not eating til lunch I guess) but the shakes are a good alternative. If made with frozen blueberries or cherries you can even avoid the seeds. - 10/4/2010 12:31:39 AM
    NURSERAY1 - You can eat anything first thing in the morning, not just traditional breakfast foods. A slice of pizza, a handful of nuts and an apple, half of a turkey sandwich, etc. - 12/3/2009 12:29:41 PM
  • I meant that I don't like eggs unless they are drowned in salsa. - 12/3/2009 12:49:40 AM
  • I have hard time eating breakfast. It could be that I don't like breakfast foods so I have learned to not eat so now really don't get hungry until 11 to 1. I really like eggs unless scrambled and disguised by salsa, I don't like cereal, maple syrup, biscuits, berries (its a texture thing with the seeds), Any suggestions? - 12/3/2009 12:47:04 AM
