    I am always hungry first thing in the morning, so breakfast is my largest meal of the day. I eat at least 30g of protein, often 40g for breakfast (usually a salmon or tuna 'salad' or a bison burger and egg). I may want to eat again about 1 or 2 pm, but that's just a small meal, and at about 5 pm, I'll have a few walnuts OR an egg white brownie and tea.

    I've been eating like this for several years, and it just seems to go with my personal biorhythms. I don't think there's any 'right' schedule for meals--it's what works for the individual.

    I think you should read Mark's fasting posts Xeronimo.

    As I say if I eat in the morning I am hungry all day long.

    If I don't I am not hungry all day.

    The advantage for me is that I like to eat big meals. I enjoy a big lunch a lot more than a smaller sized breakfast and lunch. I'm truly hungry by 2pm so it's a lot more enjoyable in that regard as well. I also don't feel like preparing food in the morning as much either.

    I think either of those is a better solution than your "fuel" shake. Either eat breakfast or skip it. Even the guy who sells Primal Fuel says it's preferential to get those nutrients from whole foods.

    Fair enough. That 'fuel shake' is just very convenient though and it tastes quite well (when the fresh fruit are blended into it!). It's just that it seems to me like I'm more hungry these last couple of days then I used to ... and I wonder why. Because I haven't really changed my eating patterns?

    And so how should I start my day then? By only drinking water and maybe a coffee?

    Yup. Give it a try. It works for lots and lots of us.

    Eating a LARGE protein-filled breakfast MADE OF FOOD also works for a lot of people.

    Try one. If you hate it, try the other.
