morning breakfast ritual

hi, just wondering what people do for food in the morning. im fairly bad at eating in the morning so dont like to eat overboard.

i myself have 3 weetabix with honey and a soy protien shake at 9.30am. (usually when my mum shouts at me to wake up summer hols atm).

a mate said, its best to drink the protien shake straight away in water, then have the food afterwards, is this correct?

    What was his reasoning? I would rather spread them all equally I reckon.

    My morning routine is getting up between 5.30 and 5.45, cooking my days meals while drinking black coffee and a couple pints water, fasted steady state at 6.30, then I usually feel hungry yet have no appetite, so its a shake for me until I get to work and eat eggs usually. (or fried chicken and beef and a whole cucumber at the moment!!)

    so both of you are cutting then ?

    so drinking protein shake first thing in the day isnt 100% vital. my m8s reasoning was, you sleep for 8 hours with a lack of protein so you should have a shake asap in the morning.

    well, at night i have 3 slices of wholemeal bread covered with peanut butter and tuna. i thought this would be a decent enough as a last meal... might have to look into all that quark stuff. only thing is, i hate cheese

    ok so have a tub of fat free fromage frais dump some strawberry jam in there and job done . If you want you can use reduced sugar jam or a personal fav or mine is hot honey with chopped nuts in fat free fromage frais, absolutely lovely!

    I have 27g whey with 250ml OJ blended! Goes down very well indeed! Better than whey in water for me!

    Not at all mate. Whey can be 'useful' as its rapidly absorbed, but 9/10 people will choose real food (it will certainly keep you fuller for longer).

    for my final night time meal:
    would something like: 3 slices of wholemeal bread, with peanut butter generously applied to each slice and sardines added plus 2x omega tabs. would it provide the slow release of protein and fats during the night?

    protein from the sardines, small amount of carb from bread slices, fat from the sardines and tabs.

    Hmmmm bit hard to say. There are better choices.....and also a lot worse! Try it and see how you go?

    (and yes I am cutting ATM BTW)

    theres bound to be an easy 40g of carbs in the bread mate but if youre blking and it fits in with your diet then go for it. I would also try Leskol cheese on toast as well. Google it to see what im talking about

    i hate cheese tbh yup i am bulking and my diet is super super clean atm so 3 wholegrain slices of bread at night dont really bother me. im gonna give the sardines/makeral a try. usually i have tuna at night with the bread and pb.

    I agree with your mate,whey in water first thing followed by a solid feed 30mins later
