    breakfast


    how important is it to start your first meal of the day with whole food? recently, i have been a protein shake, w/ 60 grams whey protein, oatmeal, frozen strawberries, peanut butter and water. is this sufficient or should i be eating more whole foods? by the way, i eat whole food at my next meal approx 2 hours later

    You shoudl always eat whole foods until you start taking in 300-400 grams of protein - then it's gets a little hard to consume that much chicken/fish/eggs/lean beef and that' where you implament the shakes.

    i think it looks okay. it's also a money question.
    even 250g of protein in whole foods is way more expensive than having a shake inbetween instead.

    its not a problem to eat whole foods in the morning, its just easier to make before i go to work than bringing egg whites and oatmeal to work in the am. does it make a difference. that is the only meal that is a shake and the other 5 meals are whole food. thanks in advance

    personally, i prefer having a shake for breakfast because it provides the muscles with fast protein after the night.

    I have a whey shake, big bowl of oatmeal, bannana, cup of yogurt, and a glass of OJ. I think what you are having is a good way to kick off the day. Personally I think so long as you balance whole foods with shakes, you are fine. I will often toss a shake in there with my whole foods meal, instead of just having a shake by itself as a meal.

    I'm not very hungry first thing in the morning, so I have a small bowl of oatmeal or something fairly light. Then, a protein shake one to two hours later.

    No problem here. I really have no appetite when I first wake up, so I blend up about 40 grams of protein, a banana, some PB, and some oats in 16 ozs of milk and I'm good to go. Otherwise it's nothing but whole foods for me.

    Chicken....yes, chicken for breakfast is what I have for protein. Too many egg whites get nasty in my opinion.
    after that I have my oatmeal, etc.
    Good breakfast.

    I like the idea of a shake for breakfast. I usually do it a couple of times a week. Whey+milk+oats+banana. I work afternoons so I usually cook food to take into work. If I am cooking breakfast too it feels like I spend most of my free time cooking and washing dishes when I would rather by playing with my daughter.
