    Oatmeal and some fruit. I prefer grapefruit, natural metabolism enhancer for me.

    Failing that, there's always left-over pizza.

    oatmeal won't do it, you need proteines. Maybe if you eat some cheese with that. Low fat creton would be great also.

    Beer. :D
  12. Not funny, dude. You need protein with breakfast, as someone pointed out.

    Beer and beef jerky.

    I can tell you what's not.

    A croissant breakfast sandwich with ham cheese and eggs from Burger King.

    Couple of years ago I downed one, then went in for a blood test. As I was pulling out of the parking lot, my doctor literally ran out of his office, chased me down in the parking lot, and showed me a test tube of my blood with this two inch long head of fat, kind of like a foam head on a beer.

    He was mad and said "What the he** did you eat for breakfast?"

    Sorry, one meal of eggs, ham, cheese, and roll will not cause your blood to separate into fat and blood. If this is the case, you most likely have a genetic condition that causes you to produce a ton more cholesterol than you need.

    Remember, you can only control your serum cholesterol level 15-20% either way of it's natural number via diet and exercise. Everything else is genetics, and if it's abnormally high, you'll need to take medication to bring it into the safe range.

    I've been down this road myself for the last 10 years. Untreated, my cholesterol is 400. If I were to make every effort to reduce that through diet and exercise, I could shave 80 points off that at most, leaving me at 320 - still dangerously high. Through diet, exercise and Zocor (simvastatin), mt last cholesterol test was 176.

    It didn't make sense to me when he showed me but he said that was a result of what I had eaten earlier.

    Oatmeal is pretty much porridge, yeah? Fruit doesn't contain much protein, does it? If you're going to have fruit, may as well have banana, I find it's the only fruit that doesn't make me feel hungry five minutes later.

    Eggs on toast?
  19. Steak and eggs and hash browns and wheat toast. Can't think of anything better than that.
  20. Getting plenty of protein in your breakfast is probably one of the best things you can do to keep up your energy level. If all you eat is a bowl of Cheerios, you're probably going to be hungry again by 10.

    Protein shakes are good. So is toast with peanut butter. Or eggs, or yogurt. There also are a lot of high-protein cereals out now, although some of them taste like packing material.
