Anybody find it hard to eat as soon you wake?

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. 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.


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

    Hope it helps

  7. 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!

    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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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

  13. 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..

  14. 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? :-)

  16. 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.

  17. 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.

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

  20. 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.

  21. i HATE it. so i get a protein shake right away, wait an an hour and have a huge meal.

  22. Just go with a shake. That's your best bet

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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.
