What's Your Breakfast?

As we all know, breakfast is the most important meal of the day. I’ve read it should also be the biggest meal of the day. After further inspection, I’ve become paranoid that my breakfast isn’t big enough. Right now it’s been:

1 Cup Egg Whites
4 Whole Eggs

I vastly underestimated the calories/fat, so today I bumped it up to…

2 Cup Egg Whites
4 Whole Eggs
2 tbsp Natural Peanut Butter

So what do you guys think? A little background - I’m 225lbs, currently trying to lose fat via a “clean” Anabolic Diet.

I was wondering where everybody else stands on the first meal of the day and if anybody thinks I’m still undereating.

I think the new approach with more food looks more correct to me, but given your weight you might even be able to do more.

I am 235 but have considerably more bodyfat than you. I am doing very low carbs also.

First thing I have in the morning now:
~8 g BCAAs
5 g glutamine
2 scoops whey isolate (about 50 g protein)

I’ll also have 2 oz of almonds for fat and fiber.

About 2 hours later:

If at home I’ll make a bacon cheeseburger (no bun) with 8 oz of 80% lean beef and steam 12 oz of broccoli.

If at work I’ll eat one of the following: one box of Jimmy Dean turkey sausage patties; one pack of pepperoni and 6-8 slices of a high protein cheese; 7-8 oz block of high protein cheese (I like Kerry’s Gold Dubliner).

today i had 3 eggs with a slice of cheese on top and 2 scoops cytogainer.

Yeah, I was contemplating adding some nuts to the equation (no homo).

I forgot to add that I use fat free Cheese which adds 10g of protein. Then again protein isn’t the issue, I was more worried about the calories/fat.

1/4 cup steel oats w/ 1 serving of Grow! whey mixed in

One egg fried with turkey on Thomas’s English muffin w/ ketchup.

The new (i think its new) Thomas’s english muffin’s have 8g of fiber and specifically has “NO high fructose corn syrup!” on the cover. Yummm

my breakfast for the past few months

1 cup (uncooked) oatmeal: cooked
1 apple
few teaspoons of honey
2 scoops whey isolate, recently switched to casein for slower absorption

i used to add a few tablespoons of ground almonds as well but took them out as i’m trying to cut (other meals reduced as well)

6 eggs with shredded cheddar cheese, sweet potatoe and glass of water or oj.

Omelet:
2 whole Omega-3 eggs
1/2 cup eggwhites
hand full chopped spinach
1/4 cup feta cheese

4 strips turkey bacon

2 slices Flax and Fiber bread with natty PB

3 Falameout

Blueberries, raspberries, ice, and a shot of Tea Tech in the blender. Awesome!

3 Omega Eggs
1 Cup Egg Creations (mix of whole eggs and egg whites)
3 slices of turkey bacon
1 slice of cheese
half cup of omelette veggies

I usually only get a low carb Metabloic Shake… then another every 2 hours for the next 6 hours until I leave work.

1 - 2 a month I splurge at McD’s and get 1 - 2 sausage biscuit and hashbrown. I try to keep it clean but this can be a weakness.

I generally don’t have time to cook before I leave for work in the morning sometimes at 5:30. So I shake it up as long as I have the protein.
