View Full Version : What to eat for breakfast

08-16-2002, 05:48 AM
I'm not sure if I'm getting enough protein, or if I'm having too many carbs for breakfast.

Here's what i have:

6 egg whites
about 300ml skim milk
100g of Fruit n'Fibre, or Cheerios

that should add up to about 27-30g of protein, and around 80-85g of carbs.

im currently bulking, but i think the cereals i eat have too much sugar. is it ok to have about 20g of carbs in the form of sugars for breakfast?

also, since breakfast is ur first meal after 8-9 hours of sleeping, dont u need a fast absorbing protein source? is milk ok or should i have whey instead?

what do you guys have for breakfast? im lately getting a bit sick of eating this every day, so i would like to see some alternative meals for breakfast.

So breakfast? whats breakfast? It s certainly one of the most important meals of the day guess why? You have been in a state of fasting for a peroid of 8 hours or longer and your body is craving for nutrients. Therefore your aim is to supply what your body needs!!!

The liver can absorb 300 - 400 calories of glucose that / 4.2 turns out something around 90gr therefore one should aim for 90 grams of carbs in the morning this can be achieved by supplying complex carbs like a mixture of all bran and oats. Why all bran? All bran has more the double the quantity of minerals the oats posess so some oats and bran will be fine. I also like to add 20 gr of raisins inthe morning. No Milk just water.

I usually eat some eggs, yogurth and a protein shake

Keep it low i usally take only half a tablespoon of Olive Oil

Aim: Moderate Protein, High Carbs(COMPLEX) , Little Fat

1 whole egg ~ 2 egg whites
2 toast
1/2 raisin bagel
pineapple juice

ok thnx for the posts guys.

majsi98, i do have about 80-90 grams of carbohydrates for breakfast, but the only problem is that i still have another 6 meals a day, (with my post-workout meal consisting about 80g of carbs), so i find it a bit difficult to restrict my carb intake. (im aiming for 300g of carbs a day)

i find it hard to eat about only 20-30 grams of carbs for each other meal except breakfast and post-workout, even a tuna sandwich has about 50-60 grams of carbs in it. other than MRPs, i dont find it easy mixing food to give me that amount of carbs with a good amount of protein.

what do your other meals look like?

eat turkey jerkey egg whites cottage cheese fat free cheese use lettuce instead of bread and make salads use mustard for a calorie free dressing

Yo buddy eat tuna without the sandwich put some mayo on it and there you got some 30 - 40 gr of protein + something like 10 -20 gr of fat and 0 carbs
