    Breakfast Experiments

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone else experiment with breakfast? Volume, fat or protein content, etc?

    I can't seem to get breakfast dialed in. For whatever reason coffee will keep me from eating until lunch, but a lot of times I get rather hungry.

    This morning I tried a larger breakfast. 2 eggs and half a can of coconut milk, which I think ended up as about 500 calories, a heavy breakfast for me.

    I feel like hell too, so I doubt I'll try that one again.


    I would just like to know if anyone else goes through the same thing, and what your results have been.

    Update:

    Day 2: Tried many less calories, and feel better.

    2 egg omelet with some spinach and mushrooms.

    Nothing to drink, not even water. I feel much better, I did get hungry about 30 minutes ago. I drank some coffee as my first liquid of the day with tiny amount of coconut creamer (because it's delish), and that seemed to settle me down.

    I'll update for day 3 as well, may try something different again.

    Once I start eating, my body wants to keep eating. I've never been much of a breakfast person anyway, so with going primal it just makes more sense to skip it. I've quit coffee, so it's water or tea until noontime.

    I think that much coconut milk at one time would make anyone* feel miserable, even me-- and I have coconut milk running through my veins
    What on earth motivated it? Why not try a bigger breakfast made out of foods?

    *by ''anyone,'' I'm not calling out a challenge to inspire the "yuh-huh-i-do-it-all-the-time" people to come out

    If I stick to 2 eggs and 2 or 3 slices of bacon (and a couple of cups of coffee) I'm good to go without feeling either hungry or bloated). If I vary from that, I either end up starving or stuffed.

    I don't have the time or the inclination to mess around with breakfast. With my job, I might not see a bathroom for 4 or 5 hours after I eat, so I stick with stuff that I know works (read "doesn't fight to get out at inconvenient times").

    Break? Fast? Huh?

    I have been having baked eggs and they hold me till lunch quite nicely. I saute up some vegg in butter, put in an oven safe dish--pyrex dish, 4 inches across, probably 2-3 inches deep. Add a drizzle of cream, crack 3 eggs over, add a dap of butter and bake for 20 minutes at 350. Works well, I don't get hungry and like I said good to go till lunch time. The vegg of choice lately has been a bit of onion with spinach and broccoli.

    I have experimented with many things and the only thing that works for me is a power shake. I use So Delicious coconut milk, fruit, chia seeds, and cod liver oil. Sometimes I add protein powder or greens..... I have tried many variations of eggs and breakfast meats and it all made me feel yucky that early so I stick with my drink.

    I don't usually eat until after noon. But then I eat a big meal - usually a 4- or 5-egg omelet, sometimes with bacon, sometimes not. (I'm 130 lbs.) To me 2 eggs and some bacon would leave me hungry. I think, too, think that that much coconut milk would not be good, especially on an empty stomach. I'd try more protein, moderate fat.

    This morning, I ate 6 eggs, a few strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, a banana, an apple, and a cup of green tea. I like breakfast...

    Ideally, I would only eat one big meal, usually breakfast, one small meal, and a snack or two. I don't have a routine, but I eat when I'm hungry. This morning, I wasn't particularly hungry, but I knew I was going to be without lunch, so I made. Big-ass breakfast anyways, to make up.
