Are you Hungry when you wake up in the morning?

There are people who are really hungry when they wake up in the morning, so they have big breakfasts. They say that they need it to be able to put up with a whole day, and doctors say that it's probably the healthiest way to go. However, I am not like that. I am rarely hungry in the mornings, specially when i wake up early. Only if i haven't had dinner for whatever reason or something like that i will feel like having a decent breakfast. What happens to you in which refers to this? Are you hungry in the mornings when you wake up?

I used to be very hungry 2-3 yrs back when I woke up in the morning, but for the past couple of years, I hav noticed a big change in myself.. I don't feel that hungry now, maybe its becoz I do regular workouts in the evening and have a nice meal before I go to sleep in the night..

yes i am,my friend.the so called pundits or experts are alway trying to tell us what to do is more healthy,more desirable.but in my opinion,the situation should be considered diferently from people to people.a generalized theory may not suit every people's need.so if you are not hungery in the morning,i think it's reasonable to postpone your breakfast,which might be a more favorable way of living for you.

Hi LightninStrike! I don't feel hunger or even crave to eat when I wake up each morning. I usually get hungry after 2-3 hours after I woke up. So, I really don't have breakfast..I have brunch instead. Haha..Take care and have a nice day.

Yeah, that is what happens to me too. Thing is that when i am up early, i will be starving by mid morning or so, but not before that time. And when i wake up after 10am at weekends etc, i normally don't have anything to eat and just wait for lunchtime.

I also don't get that hungry early in the morning if I have had my dinner in the previous day. I don't like to eat anything in the morning. I just take some light breakfast for me to go on till lunch. I don't eat anything if I have just got up from my bed. A cup of coffee can make me go upto the lunch time.

As of late, i am forcing myself to at least have a glass of juice and a couple cookies or something like that before leaving for work. Not that i am really enthusiastic about it, but it's true that the morning isn't as long with something banked in your stomach.

There are those times that I really feel so hungry when I wake up. But most of the times, I really don't feel like eating at all. The reasons might be.. I had a very heavy dinner the night before or I'm still so sleepy that my mind doesn't get what my stomach is trying to demand.

Sometimes, if I don't eat much or don't eat at all the day before. But I make it sure, even if I am not really that hungry, to eat heavy meal every morning. It helps prevent many forms of deseases and it fuels us for our activities for the whole day. It is a healthy habit to eat breakfast.

Yes, just like today, I didn't took my breakfast. Some of my reasons, sometimes I wake up late (when have nothing else to do), also when I have a hangover or feeling a little bit unwell and also when I feel not liking the food or is simply not hungry. My mood depends really, if tmy breakfast is a combination of meals, then I'd quickly jump into the chair and eat!;)

Hi Lightnin Sweety - I am never very hungry in the morning although nowadays I have to try and force myself to eat something as I have to take my medication and I have to eat first! I never ever let my kids out to school without breakfast though - it really is the healthy way to go! xxx

Usually I feel hungry one or two hours after I wake up in the morning.So I would surf on internet for thirty or forty minutes before I have breakfast.In my opinion,breakfast is quite important and I never skip it.I have bread,milk or even some fruit sometimes.

I'm not usually hungry when I wake up in the mornings. I have a nasty sinus condition, and it causes me to wake up nauseated most mornings. Under those conditions, it's difficult to think about food, you know? So I tend to wait several hours, until that feeling passes, before I eat my breakfast...and sometimes I'll just skip breakfast entirely and wait until lunchtime to eat.

That really depends. Sometimes when I have a really good dinner and I am really full at night, I won't be hungry when I get up in the morning. But sometimes, I skip dinner and when I wake up, I would feel so hungry and I have to eat immediately *laughs*.

No, I don't wake up hungry, and could go without breakfast if I really had to. I only eat it because as they say, breakfast is the most important meal of the day! I never used to eat breakfast, and never felt hungry before lunch time!

I am not hungry right when I wake up. It takes about an hour before I am hungry. I try to at least have a piece of toast or a banana before I go out, because otherwise I will be very hungry all day.

yes of course,,, it is normal for me to get hungry when i wake up in the morning because imagine for 8-10 hours of sleeping you ate nothing.. and in a day you eat three times or more and the interval hours for that is only 3- 4 hours then you get hungry after that.. how much more when its 8 hours... that means it our body needs food to eat

I feel that what Im experiencing is kinda weird... When I have dinner, usually I would wake up in the morning (regardless of what time I wake up) very hungry. But if I didn't take dinner, I would wake up in the morning feeling full..odd!

We don't usually get hungry at once when we wake up early in the morning. i think our stomach needs to wake up first. my husband don't even get hungry at all because he's not use to eating early in the morning. i just make coffee for us first then after a few hours when we are hungry that's the time we eat something :)
