Problems Eating Breakfast!!!??!?!
hey do any of you guys ever have trouble eating breakfast?? sometimes i wake up and my stomach is growling like a horny ass grizzly but when i go to eat my eggs & oatmeal i start gagging after the first or second bite. i usually end up throwing it all away after fifteen minutes of nibbling.
does this happen to other people?? and how can i fix it?

Are you drinking water with the meal? That may help. Sometimes I get that way w/ oatmeal. I force myself to finish it, though... have to keep those FitDay numbers in check LOL.

no no water, unless i get tired of the milk. i'll give it a shot though, i'm open to anything now.
and after hundreds of bowls of oatmeal they just look like nasty crap. but oh well...the sacrifices we make...

Shakes is right, you gotta spice it up and try something different. Variety is the key to not burning out on certain foods. I can't even look at a bowl of oatmeal anymore without getting nauseous. Same goes for tuna fish.

I used to be the same way...
Started making smoothies with eggwhites/fruit/protein/yogurt. And eat 2 pieces of wheat toast with that. And presto...1k cals.
Much easier on my stomach in the morning than eggs and oatmeal.
You should try it...

As the OP has been discussed, the question in my mind now turns to; are horny grizzly bears truly that hungry?

Yea I am not a breakfast person at all. When I am forced to eat its a smaller meal with lots of water to wash it down or. I'd make a shake like MHP up you mass. Tastes good and down easy and 600-900cals of goodness

To get my oatmeal down I make it then add 1 scoop of chocolate protein powder to it and stir it up, then if I'm not cutting I'll add a teaspoon of peanut butter to it. It then kind of reminds me of no bake cookies..

Yep, I cook the oatmeal and when its done I add in 1-2 scoops of protein powder add water if needed and then stir it up and add the peanut butter in and stir it.

Let me know what you think. It is breakfast for me on my comp diet minus the peanut butter.

I have been having this problem too. All my meals through out the day are different cause it keeps things interesting. Breakfast is always the same though cause eggs and oatmeal are just an easy "go to" breakfast food. I tried the smoothie thing this morning for the first time. Drinking a smoothie was so much easier. I also ate more calories than my normal breakfast!!
Also,if you do eat a whole food meal in the morning,I have found that drinking a glass of cold water while I'm making my breakfast really gets my hungry and breakfast settles better. It was some study in men's health I read.
"1. Wake up to water
Imagine not drinking all day at work -- no coffee, no water, no diet soda. At the end of an 8-hour shift, you'd be pretty parched. Which is precisely why you should start rehydrating immediately after a full night's slumber. From now on, drink at least 16 ounces of chilled H2O as soon as you rise in the morning. German scientists recently found that doing this boosts metabolism by 24 percent for 90 minutes afterward. (A smaller amount of water had no effect.)"

I hated breakfast too.
Force yourself to fill your stomach for a couple days. You will eventually crave large meals in the mornings.
MRP help to get the calories in if you really cant eat but have a lot of maltodextrin
