It could be time to switch up protein brands and try something new but this practice keeps me in the 230-235 lb range and I lift heavier with ease opposed to when I eat less and drop 10 lbs or so , I lift less but I look better less bloated and my clothes fit nicer. I just don't get the "your got huge" comments from people as much. Gotta say my ego likes that ;-)
    Screenshot this post and print and post it where ever you need it to remind yourself. Pay attention brother. Quit being a slave to this 'thing' and live a life. I recall someone recently had a wake-up call. "Mike - call holding on line one!"

    Very true, thanks for pointing that out. Sometimes its hard to break a routine and change it up for fear of losing what youve worked so hard (and paid) for. To much pushing a strict eating/lifting regimen and not enough listening to what my body really wants/needs in order to reach my goals. Definitely a call to rework things and hit the fitness routine from a different angle. I've already started weeding out and changing the things that bring on stress in my life that lead to my heart attack, and this "thing" as you say, is something else that needs that attention. Back to the drawing board!

  3. You are not alone. I have to keep this 'thing' in check as it can take the life out of living if I let it. Be well.

    Very much so a balance of doing too much or too little and adjusting it all with age as it seems. Be well as well ;-)

  5. I don't find it harder, but I guess as you pointed out I'm younger so that probably has some effect. Habits would, too, I imagine, as I grew up eating breakfast and so have continued this tradition. I wonder if maybe you eat so late at night that it has an effect on your morning appetite? Except for workout days, the last meal I eat is usually around 7-8pm, so when I'm ready to eat at 7am I'm feeling very hungry.

  6. No my meal at night is 8-9pm at latest. No carbs past 6 and all that. I've just never had a morning appetite. Did the shake first thing this morning rather then my usual bran cereal,greek yogurt, orange juice and it was a bit easier to get down.

  7. I had to learn this the hard way the other day here too LOL

    Hope it helps

  12. I do not have difficulty eating as soon as I wake, but it is very important to get nutrients to your body once you wake up.
    If you can't eat some good foods right away I suggest: Multi-vitamin + Protein shake. Then after a hour or two when you wake up more make a descent breakfast!

  13. Not to be argumentative with you but please provide evidence to support "it is very important to get nutrients to your body once you wake up."

    If throughout my waking hours I eat a well balanced, nutritious diet, sufficient in proper proportions of macros and calories based on activity levels and or goals; what exactly is the problem without eating immediately upon waking? What are the harmful effects of rising and not consuming food immediately? I'm asking you to provide empirical/statistical/scientific evidence to support this and leave anecdotal brotelligence and myth based response out of your reply.

  14. No problem bro,
    There are many scientific studies that outline why breakfast is important, I will provide a short list. There are many many more references out there.
    As far as bodybuilding goes, I would hate to resort to a bodybuilding website but it is convenient and comes with respectable references.
    bodybuilding.com/fun/satter26.htm

    bodybuilding.com/fun/sclark46.htm

    webmd.com/diet/guide/most-important-meal

    edis.ifas.ufl.edu/he550

    ecvhornets-hc.co.uk/documents/nutrition/breakfast_nutrition.pdf


    eis2win.co.uk/pages/news_top10nutritionalmistakesm adebyathletes.aspx

    Also, if we look at the body. During sleep it goes in a nutrient deprived state for a number of hours (the nutrients we consume throughout the day only last so long, which is why it is important to eat numerous meals). When we go to sleep we go an average of 8 hours without food consumption. Muscles require many nutrients, so it is important to "feed" them upon waking. We want to keep the body in an calorie surplus and rich in nutrients (not Doritos and Oreos). << My bro-science. However the studies speak for themselves, breakfast is important

    Feel free to google: " Importance of nutrient rich breakfast "
    Or search PubMed for articles

    A breakfast, in my opinion and in the opinion of academic literature is a very important aspect of maintaining a healthy body--which in turn is necessary for bodybuilding and other forms of athleticism.


    I hope this solves the matter, I dislike prolonged arguments over points of no major concern. If someone doesn't feel breakfast is important so be it. I was under the assumption that the gentlemen who started this thread wanted a solution to not being able to eat a good breakfast.

    Also immediately may be strong feel free to shower and change etc but i do not recommend going hours without eating. If you rise at eight but don't have an appetitie until eleven I recommend getting some nutrients to your starving body before then...you don't fast for eight hours during the day....why encourage it at night

    No big deal

    There is no argument. Simply a discussion. There is of course plenty of empirical and anecdotal evidence to support that breakfast is the most important meal of your day. My point was that you will not experience detrimental effects if you do not consume breakfast immediately upon waking or for that matter even a couple hours after waking. As much as nutrition is important we do not "starve" if we don't eat for a couple hours longer unless we are already insufficiently feeding our bodies.

    Thanks.

  16. 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

  18. Happens to me...I usually just have a protein shake or banana for early morning workouts and then after my workout my appetite is there..

  19. Try Lean Gains Protocol. I don't eat my first meal until 1:00pm. Took me from [email protected]% BF to [email protected]% 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.

    But does it come with a black fedora? :-)

  21. 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.

  22. 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.

  23. Agreed on the fluid intake. Glycerol and creatine assit with this as well for us low carb types

  24. I do. And it usually happens when I take a midnight snack.

  25. 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.
