How Big is Your.........Breakfast?


#1

Height = 5ft 8in
Weight = 155LBS
Body fat = ~11%

I just finished my finals for college and can actually eat a real "sit at home" breakfast w/o worrying about classes and exams...I wanted to know if you guys think this is an adequate breakfast.

My Oatmeal
1 cup dried oats = 300kcal
1 1/2 scoops of whey protein = 200kcal
1 cup frozen strawberries = 50kcal
(and some water to bring it all together)

My Omelette
2 whole eggs & 1 egg white = 160kcal
green bell peppers, onions, scallions, mushroom = I decide not to consider them w/ kcal intake b/c it's probably something real low

Orange = 50kcal

So altogether, it's a little less than 800 kcal(didn't mention macronutrients b/c I'm pretty sure everybody has a vague idea of what has what)...enough, too much, or more??? tsk tsk, which way do I go....

P.S.-anybody else want to display their breakfast for it to be critiqued????

#14

I'm on the AD and my breakfast is:
flax meal
2 tbs coconut oil
heavy cream (¼ cup)
casein
2 tbs olive oil butter
3eggs

Works out to about 1300 calories.


#15

Either 4-5 eggs with cheese, chicken breast and tomatoes, or whey, milk, flax seeds and oats...


#16

I'm on the AD.
Usually eggs scrambled with some kind of meat.

Past couple of mornings:

4 large eggs - 280 cals
Butter - 100 cals
150g beef (poached) - 300 cals
mas o menos 150g spinach - 30 cals?

= 710 cals (54g protein)

I'll usually have tuna instead of beef which brings the cals (mainly from fat) down by 200 or so.
In that case I'll add a tbsp or two of natty PB.

PB + Eggs = MMMMMMM!

Oh and don't forget the flax!


#17

Today... I cooked oats in orange juice and butter. Then I cut up strawberries and added them along with raspberries. Lowered the temp then stirred in almond meal/flour, leucine, and a few tablespoons of Spike Shooter. When it was done I stirred in some sunflower seeds, flax seed meal, and topped it off with whipped cream.

I drank some milk(blended with MD powder, leucine, creatine, egg yolks, agave syrup, and vanilla beans) along side my oats. I have no idea on how much calories but it was delicious. Don't hate.
