    Maybe switch your workout to lifitng in the morning. This will help develop a hunger for a meal, even if it happens to be breakfast.

    Yeah I'm working on it and by working on it I mean I had my wife wake me at 7am this morning to go hit the gym before she heads off at 930 to work. Unfortunately my sleeping pattern blows as always so I didn't crash until after 1-2am somewhere so come wake up call a couple pillows got tossed at her, she tried saying I'd get fat if I didn't go and some other "motivational" comments. By that time my head was between 2 pillows and wrapped with the comforter and back to la la land. Lol. Better luck tommorow! Haha

    Try Lean Gains Protocol. I don't eat my first meal until 1:00pm. Took me from 212@12% BF to 205@7% BF. It takes time to get used to the fast but it is effective. I'm sure there will be controversy surrounding this protocol, but we need to remember that everybody functions differently. This protocol works well for me and many others, but may not be for you.

    recently ive been gaining strength being completely fasted for my workouts.

    carbs make you hold water ( i believe 4g of water for every 1g carb ), so if you train fasted its even more important to take in alot of water/fluid before your workouts so you don't get fatigued quickly. if i workout and dont have at least 20-30 ozs of water before , i get fatigued super fast.

    thats been my experience with fasted training, anyway.
    For me, the action IS the juice.

    I often find it difficult to eat in the morning.


    My favourite breakfast is a home made protien bar. they're easy to eat and about 500 cals.

    At the moment im eating two peices of brown bread with natural penut butter + a dbl scoop protein shake with milk. Its a nice fast breakfast too.

    However, If I'm low carbing i put two scoops of whey in 300mls of pasteurized egg white with a tbl spoon of pure coco.

    I had the same problem, a buddy of mine who's a physical therapist said to drive down 12-16 ounces of water as soon as you wake up. Apparently it'll jump start your metabolism for the day. I have a bottle next to me for when I wake up, after that I ****, shower, shave and then have no problem eating.

    What time do you wake up? I have no scientific basis for this, but I also experience the same thing when I wake up after 8 AM. But when I wake up as early as 6 AM, I feel hungry as soon as I get out of bed. I'm not sure why, but that's how my body works.

    I can only train first thing in the morning due to my schedule. I have tried asking everyone the right thing to do about eating. I find fasted is the only way I get the most out of my supplements.


    I have no problem eating I just have bad timing and forget to eat or I am in my truck and eating is hard. Try mixing a weight gainer .... Four scoops doesn't mix well.

    Eating as soon as you wake is trained. Once your body gets used to fueling up at certain times, it's like taking a morning **** - you'll be primed to go.

    I can tell you what time it is based on how hungry I am most of the time. Every three hours my stomach rumbles. Right when I wake up it rumbles me to the bathroom and then right into the kitchen.

    It took time though... It was wrestling down oats and eggs for about a month before my body felt like it needed it.

    I know a ****load of people who were not breakfast eaters... They saw how my body was changing and my fat was leaving and they asked for advice. Now they eat breakfast no matter what - because their body asks for it.

    Guilt played a huge factor too. Didn't want my body breaking down and eating what I was trying to build up.

    I'm old school - I eat to wake up.
