Breakfast tips?

When I have to leave early for work, I can't bring myself to eat breakfast. It makes me naseous to be that full early in the morning, but then I get really hungry long before lunchtime. Do any of you have the same problem? How do you handle it? Do you have any tips for an easy breakfast that could keep me full enough until lunch, but won't make me feel sick?

What about just eating at 10am or something. You could have brinch every day...or is your job such that makes this impossible? Maybe try some whole grain toast or a wheat English muffin/bagel. These items are small and basically plain (depending on what you put on them), but the whole grains are more filling and stay with you longer than white flour items like white toast or plain white bagels. If you like peanut butter that would also be something great to put on your toast since it adds protien. Maybe a breakfast shake or smoothie would help to?

Thank you for the detailed response! I will try your tips, especially the smoothie. Do you have any suggestions on flavours on the smoothie that you can vary between?

For smooties, you can try berries, bananas, peaches. Mix and match fruit. Maybe one day have a more tropical one with banana, and mango. The next day do all berries. After that, peanut butter and banana...

I used to have this problem when I was younger and had to be at school and work at a certain time every morning. Since I stay home now it doesn't bother me because I can eat whenever I get hungry. If you drink coffee or tea in the morning, how about substituting Instant Breakfast? You can drink that hot and at least you'd get nutrition from it. It would probably keep you from getting hungry a little longer, too.

That I will probably try. I think a liquid breakfast would actually be a good choice

You probably are feeling sick from breakfast or at breakfast time because of a very low bloodsugar. You havent had food since last night! You need to level yourself up very slowly. Thats why it is so important to take TIME to have breakfast and not just rush by the table for a cup of coffee and a bite off something unhealthy. I would suggest you to take a half glass of fresh fruitjuice the minute you wake up. Or, for your convience, take a half glass of juice "freshly juiced and no sugar added" out of a carton on a flavour you like the most. Only half a glass of juice will do the work. Within 6 minutes your bloodsugar will be raised quite a bit by this way of doing so. In the meantime you can, maybe still laying/sitting on your bed, check the news or the text or whatever or just get waken up a little bit better. Now you probably feel "fit" enough to really get up and take your shower. After the shower and the clothing and the make up, please take some time for the REAL breakfast now. Your bloodsugar is now leveled up a bit more, the fruitsugars from the half glass of juice are still working for you. Eat just a bowl of cereals with some low fat milk, or some pieces of fruit, or a roll or a sandwich. Thats all, just 1 thing, more is not neccessary. Drink something with it, why not your morning coffee, thats fine. To get you going all morning, I would suggest some fruits around 09.30 hours or so. To fill in the gap between breakfast and lunch. I am sure that if you will try this way of starting your day will prevent you from getting feeling sick. Work together with your body, not against your body, is my motto.

If you can't eat early in the morning, I suggest that you pack yourself something light to eat. You can prepare a simple sandwich, or you can just buy a box of cereals and leave it at the office. Buy a box/container of soy powdered milk or regular dairy milk and leave it too at the office. in that way you can have your breakfast late, around 9:00 a.m. or 10:00 a.m. and it is easy to prepare.

I usually have a boiled egg or a scrambled egg with veggies and onions. If you eat protein in the am, you are less apt to feel hungry than if you eat carbs, even good ones.

Do you have any short breaks? My sister would sometimes prepare something small, just enough to take a quick bite if needed.

I think you can bring a big packet of cereals to the office and put it at your workstation. If you are hungry, it will be handy for you to prepare and eat it. LOL

have a light sandwich on hand. you can prepare it the night before and just put it in the refrigerator and bring it to work the next day. when you feel hungry you can always have a bite or two before having a decent meal at lunchtime. its hard to work on an empty stomach.
