    What is the role breakfast in the leptin reset? The high protein, and no carbs? In a few days I'm going to be living and buying groceries on my own and I would like to not be blindly spending tons of money on meat, then cooking it and choking it down every morning.

    I know this question has probably been answered but as this thread* is so long and fast moving I haven't read through all of it. I keep getting tiny bits and pieces of why this works but it's all lacking context.

    It's easy to get in the protein if you mentally shift away from eggs for breakfast. An 8 oz burger or a couple of large sausage links do it. Also, if you can make it to lunch without hunger on less protein I Believe Dr K has implied it is OK for you to cut back on the protein.

    ^This. Two hamburger patties are easy to eat, as is 1/2 pound of ground beef. Or go for less beef, cook it and scramble in some eggs. Perhaps it is because I am a dude, but eating 50G of protein for breakfast is cake.

    I tend to rotate meats by the week. One week steak, the next pork, this week is chicken thighs. Buy a big, bulk, family pack then chow on it all week. Works for me.
    somehow I manage to leave my intelligence and decorum at the door wherever I go. I doubt your journal will be an exception to that - not on the rug

    What the F&#* is a decorum? - Mr. Anthony

    How bout 8 scrambled eggs? That's pretty darn close to 50g. Throw in 4 slices of bacon & you're there. That was my breakfast today. Yum!
    Have not been hungry since breakfast, and it's dinner time

    i really struggle with that breakfast thing. was not even able to drink my whey shake this morning, so i had some nuts... but felt sick anyway, lowcarb-flu maybe? it was a lot's of crappy food the last few days, so no suprise really!

    will try burgers and ground beef, thats something i always crave for...i probably just have to work my way up and find the right protein source. eggs are really not a option, as much as i like them 2-3 are my absolutly max.

    [I get up at 5am and work 12 hours if I eat breakfast by 530 and lunch in 5 hrs then dinner in 5 I'm done eating by 330 but I don't get off work until 730 and I'm hungry when I get home any suggestions.





    QUOTE=geostump;537835]You can get horse meat easily in most countries and in some parts of the US.

    Check out - Jack Kruse and the leptin reset thread in the Nutrition forum. With the reset, you must eat 50g of protein for breakfast with little to no carbs. You're allowed as much carbs as 50g total for a day but should ideally keep it under 30. The idea of eating 50g of protein within 30 minutes of waking is this: It keeps you from wanting to snack in between meals and gorging on sugar and starches. You also want to space lunch minimally 5 hours after breakfast and dinner 5 hours after lunch but eat dinner 3 hours before bed. Leptin is the master hormone and if you have issues such as being insulin resistant, PCOS, hashimoto's and other autoimmune disorders you want to fix leptin first as all the other hormones that are out of whack will fall in line. If you are making yourself become leptin sensitive you will then become more insulin sensitive which is what we all want.

    I should know. I am IR and PCOS. I have pretty much cleared up the majority of my PCOS symptoms and my IR. Before the reset and while I was following primal, my average fasting blood glucose levels were around 120, they are now 104 which is fairly normal or close to normal.[/QUOTE]
