New to the forum, and have never been a breakfast eater. I am trying to gain weight and I have always been skipping breakfast or just having a bagel and cream cheese. I hear everyone kind does their own thing ranging from full meals to shakes and maybe a protein bar or supplement.

What do you eat for breakfast and what do you recommened for someone who would like to gain some weight and has never really eaten the meal on a regular basis?

I choose the following options for breakfast:

1) 1.5 cups of Fiber One Cereal with a 0.75 cup of Lactose Free, Fat Free Milk.

240 calories, 3 grams of fat, 12 grams of protein, 86 grams of carbohydrates, 48 grams of fiber.

or

2) 1 cup of Old Fashioned Quaker Qats with a tiny box raisins. (This makes two bowls and I sprinkle the raisins on.)

345 calories, 6 grams of fat, 10 grams of protein, 65 grams of carbohydrates, 9 grams of fiber.

or

3) 4 well scrambled eggs (1/8 of a cup of LFFF milk is used)

290 calories, 18 grams of fat, 25 grams of protein, 4 grams of carbohydrates, 0 grams of fiber.

It should be noted that when I choose the first two options, I follow that up with a protein packed snack of whey, chicken, tuna, etc. This usually is about 1.5 hours after I have consumed my breakfast.

(Oh, and if you are wondering - the peanut consumption starts later in the afternoon.)

Best,
Andrew

So far so good with the responses. Hopefully I get to see some more.

Quick question.

Noticed some of you guys have a protein shake for breakfast. I have one everyday but usually either after my workouts or on the days I have off at night. When you drink them in the morning do you have one again at night or after you work out?

Unholy
03-20-2007, 01:22 PM
Protein shake is just like a meal. You can have them as many times a day as you would like as long as your hitting your target cals. For me a shake in the morning is just convenience.

Isn't it bad to have to much protein?

ACCOLADE - not bad to have to much protien, better having to much then to little.

personally when im eating for strength IE bulking, ill try to have a huge bowl of oatmeal with granola, some eggs, cheese, lots of milk and maybe some fruit.

I just really started getting into working out and I never eat breakfast. I really want to change that and looking at what everyone here is eating seems like a lot. Like I dont think I could even stomach 1/4 of what some people are saying.

Wash U has decent food? Haha, where are YOU eating at? My bro/sis went/go there, and I found the cafeterias to be pretty abysmal.

To the OP: oats, frozen bananas, peanut butter, whey protein, milk in a blender. It's like 600 calories and isn't time-consuming, which is the only thing stopping me from making a tasty omelette every morning.

These are all great breakfasts. I will try some of these out. I remember hearing that you should be eating 4-6 smaller sized meals a day. Is this how you guys go about eating? What do you usually go for lunch? Do you have a meal inbetween lunch and dinner?

1 egg
1/2 cup egg whites
chopped onions, pepper & zuchini
some grated chedar cheese
leftover meat (ground beef, pork, chicken)
mrs. dash spice

put it all in a bowl and microwave for 3 minutes. stir it and microwave for another 2 minutes. pop a couple slices of 100% whole wheat bread in the toaster and voila! i chop all of the vieggies ahead of time so the whole deal only takes about 6 minutes.

2 Cups of Oatmeal + 1/4 Cup of Splenda + Sugar Free/Low Calorie Orange Juice. ~650 calories

Or

3 Jumbo Eggs + 3 peices of Toast + Sugar Free/Low Calorie Orange Juice. ~390 calories

I eat the first meal Monday - Friday

I eat the second meal Saturday - Sunday

Doing a slow cut, so this is pretty decent eating for a cut!!! Maintenance was another 1/2 cup of Oatmeal and a Banana.

that's a great idea.


I usually eat pre-cooked brown rice, split peas, olive oil, brocolli, and maybe some salsa and cheese all in a little bowl. To drink I've got a jug of whole milk.

I like to eat my carbs and I can eat it in the car when I drive to work. My only carbs come from the muffin, 2 cups of milk and some dex pre and post workout. Besides if it fits in my cals, there is no reason not to eat them. I cut on 3000 cals and it isnt that hard to fit a muffin in.

I'm pretty much with McIrish. I usually sleep until the last possible minute, so when I wake up I want a fast breakfast.

Lifting days -
Whey, Nitrean, 2 Oatmeal, Banana, Skim Milk - Blend and Drink
Vegetable (usually carrots or broccoli)

On non-lifting days I substitute natural peanut butter for Oatmeal. I don't like eating meals high in both carbs & fats.

I eat 10 meals on most days, so I don't go crazy on breakfast.
