    Whole food vs whey in morning?


    Wasup guys, ive been eating oatmeal and whey for breakfeast for months now. I heard whey is best thing to have in morning... Is egg whites and oatmeal just as good? Or should i stick to whey and oats ... Its been working for me but would like to change things up a bit!

    I always say choose real food over a powder, but it's all food/calories/protein at the end of the day. Eat whichever you prefer.

    I typically have 1 scoop of whey with a half cup of oatmeal immediately upon waking, followed an hour later by 3 whole eggs and 2 eggwhites scrambled with 2 tbsp of olive oil and a banana. Like Epolis13 said, it's all calories at the end of the day. As long as you're not drinking shakes for every meal you'll be ok. Whole foods should be your main source of nutrition with supplements to "supplement" your diet.

    I do 1 whole egg +5 egg whites scrambled , greek yogurt and turkey bacon or turkey sausage along with a kale shake blended with juiced vegis and fruits. 50+ grams of protein to kick the day off isn't a bad way to start. Personally I use whey pre and post workout and whenever I can't cook my protein.

    Whey in the morning is not superior over any other protein source. This is broscience. Personally, I would go with whatever you like to eat at that time and something that isn't time consuming so you can get your day started. I love my eggs in the morning. If I have whites, I will usually separate them the night before and add any whole ones in the morning. If I over sleep, I will just have some leftover chicken, steak, or protein powder.

    Not necessarily. Depends on when you're training and what your goals are.

    I always prefer whole food, personally, but that's simply what works for me. I feel more satiated, and my blood sugar is less disrupted (yes, even by casein). I say do what your body likes.
    Don't worry, man, someday I'ma be nobody too.
