    1/2-1 cup oatmeal, one scoop of favorite protein powder.

    I use a scoop of ALLTHEYWHEY chocolate and just mix it all together, I have fallen in love with it. I get a good dose of complex carbs for my workout while still getting a sufficient amount of protein. Try it!

    I like all the ideas....what do you think about this? It tastes like blueberries.

    1/2 cup oatmeal
    1 cup gronala
    1/4 cup blueberries
    1 cup milk
    protein powder, 30 gram
    I blend it all up in my MAGIC BULLET....I love that thing.
    Then I eat 1 hard boiled egg.

    swell i like that idea but the granola and oatmeal all at once might be too may carbs at once if your trying to lean. Being a ekco myself i have learned you can have a tons of carbs in the am but that seems like a lil too many at oce. Someone please correct me if i am wrong.

    A cup of oats along with some milled flaxseeds and blueberries is good for morning carbs. Also some fresh grapefruit/orange juice, naturally sweet but in the AM is ok. Save the shake for after breakfast, do 4-5 whites and 3-4 eggs instead.

    Ok, so protein before the carbs and protein, I can do that, I am doing the opposite right now, I will switch it.. I take 2000mg of fish oil caps at breakfast, then 1000mg at lunch, then another 2000mg at dinner. Should I change it?

    Some people believe protein should be eaten first because of the difference in the enzymes that go into digesting proteins and carbs. To me it is just easier to slam down a huge plate of eggs+whites first, and then eat the oatmeal. If you want to get even more awesome healthy fat in the combo, get some organic coconut oil and use that to cook eggs,etc. As far as fish oil, 2000mg = 2 g, I feel best after doing 3-4 gs after each meal, but it depends on the individual. Some people believe in taking more than that, some take less. Just spread it out throughout the day like you already do and you are goood.

    Also I suggest getting a liquid multivitamin, I like Vit Shoppe brand it is affordable and potent. Also liquid vitamin C and liquid E, both are great for recovery. Beta Carotene (A), vit C, vit E are antioxidants that are pretty much a requirement in your diet, because our bodies release many free radicals when we engage in heavy weight training.. antioxidants help reduce the damage.

    Thanks for all the great info!! Your very clear on your explanation.....As for vitamins I do take a few that you stated, I will have to pick up some LIQUID VIT C AND E. It makes perfect sence if you are heavy weight lifting.

    THANKS FOR ALL THE HELP!!

    my girlfriend turned me on to this one- 8 egg whites, 1/2 to 1 cup oats mixed together and scrambled, then put into a bowl. add a large tablespoon peanut butter, large table spoon of favorite sugar free jelly (i use smuckers sugar free strawberry preserves) mix it all together.. takes about 5 min. to make, longest part is cracking the eggs, about 2.5 min. to wolf down..

    So it is scrambled eggs with oatmeal, then you make a sause of peanut butter and strawberry preserves to go on top...is that correct..sounds pretty good.

    fruity pebbles are a really good breakfast.

    also i just had french toast with whip cream and fresh cut strawberries soaked in sugar.


    pretty great breakfast.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    if you got some time, some scrambled egg whites with a whole egg and some chesse with a toasted whole wheat bagel with some peanut butter is a pretty solid start if your trying to put on weight, or maybe some oatmeal if you like instead ( obviously healthier but not as satisfying imo)

    no sh!t it doesnt really matter, however it is definitely easier to eat a huge plate of eggs first rather than after oats/carbs/whatever. at least to me it is.
