    Just wondering what other guys eat for breakfast.

    I eat breakfast and then hit the gym an hour later, so it's a bit of a balancing act to not eat so much I feel bloated and sick, but eat enough to have fuel for the workout.

    I tend to eat cereal and toast or a couple eggs and then afterwards, I have a protein shake.

    Any breakfast ideas or pre-workout snack ideas?

    This:

    Steel cut oatmeal with flaxseed, chia seed, blueberries, egg whites and plain almonds. Beverage - water.

    Or when on the go with my cooler given my schedule I sometimes eat it refrigerated and I swear it tastes almost like rice pudding, especially when I skip the egg whites and add bananas, raisins and strawberries. Yeah, it takes awhile to cook the steel cut version but I just cook a cup at a time which yields (for me) six individual servings.

    Wonder no more. There are at least a dozen threads asking members what they eat for breakfast:

    Eggs and bacon mostly, or just scrambled eggs with garlic and herbs.

    And a banana and a glass of apple juice and a glass of orange juice, and most importantly, a cup of coffee.

    yourname2000 saidEggs rock...very easily digested protein, cheap and so versatile.

    Don't leave out the yolks though...the whole "eggs are bad for cholesterol" thing as been proven to be bullshit. Much of the nutrition (including hard to get nutrients like choline and other B-vits) are in the yolk.


    That's interesting because you still read that yolks are bad in fitness nutrition books.

    Love eggs. Definitely a good food.

    I have oatmeal, plain yogurt, and a protein shake and hit the gym about an hour later. Works for me.

    Yolks are good, especially while you are working out and building muscle. You actually *need* the cholesterol...

    Wheat toast, a small teaspoon of peanut butter, fruit (blackberries since they are cheap), a glass of tea, and pink guava coconut water.

    Sometimes, berry blend granola.

    Most days I drink green smoothies, otherwise some oatmeal with fruit and nuts or a bran flatbread with nut butter and banana.

    2 slices of bacon cut up into little squares, 3-4 eggs, all of that topped with cheese and avocado. Sometimes I double fry the eggs with a hunk of butter in addition to the bacon fat. Yummy!

    Usually a grapefruit with my coffee RIGHT when I wake up, and then after about half an hour I'll have a bowl of steel-cut oatmeal with sliced up bananas, and then after about another half an hour I'll have 5-6 scrambled egg-whites with unbuttered wheat toast.

    A bagel, oatmeal and a cup of coffee every single day! If I don't get to eat breakfast, prepare to be bitched at icon_biggrin.gif

    O_O... woah... some of these posts are way heavier than what I eat.

    I just have a toasted whole grain english muffin with natural (no salt or sugar added) peanut butter on each side, cottage cheese with a drizzle of honey, and coffee. Sometimes I'll add a piece of citrus fruit if I'm a little hungrier. Sit down for about 20-30 minutes with a book and have a nice li'l breakfast icon_lol.gif

    Coffee with half and half, and usually a banana with almond butter. Big tablespoons full of almond butter.

    This morning it was seven pancakes with butter and maple syrup, three slices of back bacon, orange juice, and a whole-milk latte. After breakfast I did some yardwork and then I hit the gym. That's the Sunday routine.

    Saturday breakfasts are eggier. Recently I've been cooking omelets topped with kimchi. If you haven't had eggs accompanied by all that spicy, salty, garlicky, juicy, crunchy, cabbage-y goodness, you're in for a treat. Just top the almost-set omelet with a layer of kimchi right before you do the flip-'n'-slide out of the pan. The residual heat warms it all up.

    It can vary, but usually Oatmeal and skim milk... or a good cereal like Total or All Bran, sometimes a yogart as well.
    A good quality greek yogart.

    Oatmeal (Quaker Oats) with blueberries and almonds, skim milk. Glass of fresh oj, or a mandarin. Banana. Big glass of water, 2 cups of tea. Alternate days: 2 eggs scrambled with low fat cheese, tomato, etc; or yoghurt with wheat germ; or piece of toast/english muffin with organic crunchy peanut butter. Done in 20 minutes. Weekends? waffle orgy or something similar one day, and generally bagel with lox and fruit salad the other day.

    basically have 4 options I rotate

    double serving of oatmeal with scoop of protein powder

    8 eggs (2-3 yolks), turkey bacon/sausage, 1 or two pieces of toast

    protein shake and peanut butter sandwich

    if I am really rushed for time, and I know I will eating in a couple hours anyway, I just do some greek yogurt with some protein powder thrown in with maybe an apple

    I do similarly. On lifting days. I have 2 glasses ice cold water, green tea, and orange or grapefruit half, oatmeal with soymilk, raisins and protein powder.

    After the gym I have a protein shake -- my usual one is with bananas, oatmeal, cocoa powder and instant coffee.

    On cardio days, I eat nothing at all before the workout. Usually eggs, ham and coffee afterwards.
