Alternative to oatmeal
Doe anyone know of a breakfast meal that is lower in carbs than oatmeal? Just recently started eating this in the morning compared to eggs, but i'm not diggin' the carbs. I dunno if i wanna go back to eggs again, or just stick with oatmeal.
What is a good breakfast meal for a cut?

Uhm buddy, you need to eat the eggs with the Oatmeal, matter of fact you need protein in every meal!
Besides Oatmeal is relatively low or moderate in carbs, I mean 1/2 cup is only 27g with 4g of fiber. I eat a Multi grain Oatmeal with Oats, Barley, Rye, and wheat. The barley helps your body keep a leveled blood sugar throughout the whole day so when you eat your last carb + Protein meal of the day, your body doesnt have a huge surge of Insulin.
A good Breakfast meal for a cut is 1 cup of Egg Beaters, 1 whole Egg, 3/4 cup of oatmeal, with 8 sliced strawbarries. maybe a half grapefruit too. Dont over do the fruit if you want optimal fat loss! Your breakfast is also suppose to be your largest meal of the day.

Nah, its ok! I understand. Btw egg beaters are Egg whites with the yellow coloring and added Vitamins, like the beta carotene (Vit. A) that gives it ita yellow, orangish color.

Regular eggs are better than Egg beaters, no need to shy away from them.
All your meals should be balanced, no need to make breakfast more calories than any other meal.
Probably better to move the fruit to a snack and eat it away from your regular meals.

For optimal fat-loss you need to combine protein + Carbs for your first three meals, your last three meals need to be Fiberous carbs ie. Broccoli, Asparagas, Spinach, healthy essential fats + protein.
There is a saying "eat like a king for breakfast, a prince for lunch, and a pauper for dinner." You need to front load your carbs for earlier in the day. eating carbs + prorein and fat, should only be if your trying to bulk up. Reason behind this, is you dont want fat intake when you have insulin in the blood. So egg beaters are ideal for a cut

Breakfast is the meal in which you have a little wiggle room. As of late, my breakfast has been:
4 eggs (2 whole, 2 whites)
6 oz turkey sausage
1/4 C colby-jack cheese
10 oz red potatoes
1 Tbsp EVOO
1 banana or 3 rings of pineapple
I cook up everything at once, put the sausage, eggs, and cheese in a bowl, fry the potatoes with the EVOO for 3-4 minutes, and then add them to the bowl.
Macros are roughly
80g carbs (9g fiber)

Call me a noob, or an idiot.
What is EVOO - keep in mind that i try to keep my supps simple. Like whey and Glutamine are as hard core as i go for now.

So on a cut, carbs are okay in the morning. But you wanna keep them low during the later part of the day.

Is this accelerated? or does it take about the same time for other style of cuts? Seems alot healthier.
