No-Hunger Breakfasts

Post by SpiritSong » Thu Apr 28, 2016 4:01 pm

Please give me your no-hunger guaranteed breakfasts. :lol: I don't want theory here, so please no posts about proteins, fats, fiber, etc. I want to know the actual breakfast you eat to get through the morning, especially if you have to wait 7-8 hours between breakfast and lunch.

Personally, I am hungry every morning, pretty much from 9 am to 1 pm when I have lunch. I realize some hunger will be necessary during the weight loss process. But I plan on losing my extra weight slowly over the next two years and I can't imagine spending every N-Day morning for the next two years feeling hungry. :evil: Alternatively, I am going to have to come up with two 4-hour breakfasts, one to eat at 5 am and one to eat at 9 am.

Thank you for any assistance you can provide!

2 Scrambled Eggs with melted cheddar or pepperjack on 1/2 bagel, or 1/2 tortilla, or Rhodes frozen roll.
Small Bowl of Total with a little whole milk
Bowl of berries
2 cups of coffee with cream (:

I never get hungry before lunch!!

i eat "lunch" style food for breakfast:
veggies - raw or prepared
good bread
eggs
cheese
beans
leftovers from the day before
i'm vegetarian, but if i wasn't i'd eat meat, too, for breakfast

basically, no breakfast-food - no cereals, jams, croissants,bagels, spreads... that makes me starving within an hour or two...

I may be one of the outliers here, but most days of the week I have a bowl of cereal (often Honey Nut Cheerios or Raisin Bran) with 1% milk and a banana for breakfast. It's almost seven hours from breakfast to lunch and I end up getting hungry about 30-60 minutes before lunch.

Other mornings I'll have a piece of toast with peanut butter, milk, and a banana. Or toaster waffles with peanut butter and the tiniest bit of syrup (some might consider this an S, but if I have this on a weekend I add a lot more syrup) with milk and a banana.

Eggs don't really agree with me in the morning, but they sure are filling.
A 2 egg omelet with ham, cheese, broccoli (and whatever) with 2 slices of (5g ea) high fiber toast and some fruit if there is any around is super filling to me.
If I am eating meat, a sandwich with chicken, lettuce, mayo on the same bread plus a few chips will keep me going, and I don't mind eating lunch stuff for breakfast.
If I am eating no animal products, a pita bread with 1/3 c refried beans spread on it, and a cup of coffee can keep me going very well!

Almost every day I eat a bowl of rolled or steel cut oats porridge with whole milk. Sometimes put fruit on it or some sour cream if I have it. 2 cups of milky tea. If extra hungry I have a slice of toast with butter and peanut butter.

Mid morning I have a decaf coffee or rooibos tea with milk if I feel peckish. Usually hungry an hour before lunch. I usually stretch myself out and eat breakfast later, after getting kids brekky done, so my overnight "fast" is often 14 hours. That way the day time meal stretches aren't so long.

Great topic!

I am new to this, but here is a breakfast I have always eaten. Salmon patties. Canned salmon with bone and skin, eggs, some kind of flour as a binder, and seasonings. I fry them in a little oil or butter.

I eat breakfast at 5:45. 3 of these will keep me for about 5-6 hours. My lunch break is at 11:30.

I'm like ironchef--I have oatmeal for breakfast almost every day...and I agree that having a longer span of time between dinner and breakfast, and
shorter times between my three meals, is helpful for getting through the
day. I believe that a long nighttime fast is very healthful.

I'm eating soup or stew with a dinner roll at the moment. I go through phases of eating different things but I generally cook something on the weekend to eat for breakfast over the work week.

Mine probably won't work for you, but I typically have a fruit smoothie for breakfast. Usually it contains:

1.5 cups frozen berries
3 or 4 heaping tablespoons of vanilla yogurt
1 cup of water.

Sometimes I also add a cup of raw spinach or other greens, or sometimes I make it a bit sweeter with 1/4 cup of fruit juice in place of some of the water.

I don't feel like eating when I first get up, so I usually wait an hour before breakfast, and then I have 3-4 hours between breakfast and lunch. I might have a cup of coffee with cream and sugar, or a cup of tea in there.

Good topic..I've found this works for me.. rolled oats just softened with hot water or milk with a big dollop of Greek yogurt with nuts and banana on top, with a boiled egg on the side..I have coffee first thing and a hot water and then I can wait about an hour to eat. For some reason if I cook oats into a porridge I'm starving an hour later and feel really tired, but raw oats slightly softened fills me up beautifully:D

Mostly beef, about 80g, though it can be fish or 3 eggs
Veg, usually cooked, but can be raw, about 400g
Depending on day, some whole carb, such as cereal, legumes or root - about 100-150g, depending.

Sometimes peckish, mostly just enough to have lunch with relish.

I like the q, too.

90% of the time, some variation on "two eggs and toast with fruit or vegetable." And lots of black coffee.

This morning it was two eggs fried sunny-side up, with an English muffin and an orange.

Sometimes I make an omelet with vegetables in it. Sometimes I have tomato juice instead of a piece of fruit. If I think I'll need fewer calories (early lunch, or because I'm not that hungry) I'll just have half the toast, or I'll poach the eggs and skip the butter.

If I want something cold instead, I'll have a bowl of whole Greek yogurt with a drizzle of honey, fruit chopped up and mixed in, and a handful of crunchy cereal on top.

I never have trouble making it to lunch or wanting to snack in the morning. No seconds at dinner is by far the hardest S for me to keep.

I find that if I have coffee and lots of water when I first wake up, I'm less hungry for breakfast right away. My favorite go-to breakfast or lunch is mini quiches with a side of fruit or a piece of Ezekiel bread. I make the mini quiches ahead of time and freeze them so all I have to do is microwave them for a minute and they are ready. It's worth the prep work because the recipe below makes 12 and I usually eat 2 each morning. I modify the recipe below and add what I like since I'm not counting calories, fat, etc but here is the basic twist. If you like eggs, you will love these!

* This topic seems to excite many of us, certainly myself.

* As to moderatemeals' point about blunting the morning hunger, to me, two things will do that well. First, a wake-up protein snack. This I picked up from Tim Ferris. I haven't done it in a few days, but some 30g of beef, say, and raw veg simply allowed me to take my time and have breakfast only an hour or more later, yet calmly.

* The other thing that helps me deal with hunger in the morning is exercise. Not that I'm usually ravenous or anything.

How about your own take, generally, and now that you've seen the myriad responses to your post, Spiritsong?[/list]

That's an interesting recipe. Do you think it really needs the flour and egg-whites? Wondering if one could just do eggs and milk for the base...

Merry, this recipe looks like one of those Impossible Pie recipes. You would probably need the flour, but you can substitute 2 whole eggs for the 4 egg whites, I'm certain.

I usually eat breakfast around 10am.
I like a roll/butter/cheese/meat combo.
Today I switched it up with yogurt and 2 mini muffins with peanut butter.
And lots of coffee!

I agree with eating non-breakfast food for breakfast, but I don't always have time to make it! Sometimes I do have to eat granola bars in the car and they never last me long! I try to at least eat a huge bowl of granola if I'm running low on time. That lasts longer than a bar. Also eating PB sandwich in the car works!

Hard boiled eggs are my hunger salvation. I get up very early and cannot stand to eat much at that time (6:15). I have a cup of coffee and a handful of bran and milk (for regularity! :D ). Then I have one hard boiled egg at work with another cup of coffee.

Now I am a 59 year old woman so my food needs are less than a younger person, but this actually keeps me quite satisfied until lunch (which is always a yogurt and some fruit).

Hiya!

I usually have a bowl of plain (0% fat) Greek yogurt with a handful of fresh fruit on top. This probably won't work for you though because I'm usually hungry about an hour afterwards. I've learned to live with it :lol: But my brother (who is attempting to gain weight! Can we trade places please?! :lol: ) has oatmeal with bananas and peanut butter on it. I can't guarantee that it works but I really couldn't imagine that letting you down any time soon. Oh, and the oatmeal is made with milk :wink:
Good luck!

I had a lovely breakfast in the works canteen this morning:
  • 2 Dry Toast
    3 Scoops Baked Beans (Equivalent to a large tin)
    1 Egg on the top!
Bear in mind that I'm in the "make your meals big enough to get to the next meal & establish the habit" phase.

...and I prefaced eating with a 1 hour Urban Ranging. :D

Once I get the habit down (I'm guessing 2-3 months) I'll start reducing this a little. Probably 1 Toast with 2 Scoops beans with the egg.

So I'm getting Carbs from the bread & beans, Protein from the beans & egg, fat from the egg, and fibre from the beans.

YUMMY!!

My standard breakfast is a bowl of steel-cut oat porridge, into which I mix a handful of roasted almonds (or a tablespoon or two of peanut butter), a handful of berries, a little honey or brown sugar, a splash of milk, and a dash of cinnamon. I'll also sometimes have a banana with it.

I try to keep my eating within a window of 8 hours or so. Breakfast is usually around 10 a.m., lunch around 2 p.m., and supper around 5 or 6 p.m. Waiting until 10 to eat breakfast took some getting used to, but a little coffee holds me over, and my body has adjusted so that I really don't get hungry until about that time now. I'm a public health nurse, and eat my first two meals of the day while working at my desk, in order to reserve break times for walking and/or calisthenics. Shovelglove happens at night, either right when I get home from work (before supper), or an hour or so before bed.

I often have porridge (just a very small portion) with salt and usually added seeds or a couple of chopped nuts, and a little bit of milk. Sometimes I have greek yoghurt with nuts and seeds and/or porridge oats, and I often add something sweeter to that like a little bit of honey or some berries. Occasionally, a small piece of toast/bagel with peanut butter. I need to keep the portions small, because I like to have a larger meal in the evening.

These sort of breakfasts get me through a normal, working morning, but I do struggle if being particularly active sometimes, and might add in some extra nuts. I do sometimes have an egg but I don't seem to find it as filling as other people do - sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. It maybe depends on the size of the egg!

Incidentally, I've only got to this point through habit. I used to always feel hungry mid-morning. When I started No S, I started off with bigger portions for breakfast, then gradually cut them down. I'm lucky in that I only usually have to wait five hours until lunch. If I had to go longer, I'd maybe stick with having the bigger breakfasts, then have a smaller lunch?

I alternate but usually stick with a couple staples. The cafeteria at work has a couple porridges with toppings. I'll alternate between a big bowl of oatmeal or whole grain porridge and a plate of eggs, fruit, and a starch.

Cereal with milk doesn't do it for me, but when I do have that at home and sometimes at the office, I'll have a banana or a yogurt to complement it. I almost always also get a morning latte when I do that though since cereal just doesn't do it for me.

I typically do a serving of oats with water in the microwave, then add a serving of full fat Greek yogurt, a bit of honey and berries, sometimes with nuts on top.

That or eggs. I will either scramble one whole egg with 1/2 egg whites with 1/4-1/2 cup black beans, pico, hot sauce and some cheese. Or I will make an egg bake of eggs and egg whites with spinach and roasted red peppers, cut into 6 and add a slice onto a whole grain english muffin with avocado or cheese.

Otherwise its a scoop of protein powder, into black coffee with full fat milk and a rice cake with full fat PB.

I switch between these often and they keep me very full until lunch. I workout before I eat as well, so if its not filling enough I would die before lunch.

I have a few that I rotate through. The latest is two slices of whole grain sprouted wheat bread (I like the crispiness) topped with peanut butter. I was using about 2T of PB but recently cut it down to one and that just covers the bread...barely. I usually have a banana with this and lots of black coffee. It really does the trick and I can adjust it easily according to my needs for that day.

My breakfasts are usually either

- porridge with some dried fruit + nut or seeds (or overnight oats - same thing, but cold)
- granola with berries + yoghurt
- toast & peanut butter

I usually eat breakfast around 6am and have lunch at about 12.30/1pm.
Coffee at 9am, 11am ish - that gets me through OK.

Newbie here.

Low carb, high protein and fat do it for me.

Hard boiled egg, a handful of nuts and a half cup of Greek yogurt with a sprinkle of granola for crunch. Two cups of plain green tea.

Keeps me full until noon.

I find nothing beats oatmeal for long term fullness.

Though I've traditionally preferred rolled oats from sheer laziness, recently I've been eating more steel cut (largely because my wife accidentally bought a large box).

The trick I've found to making them not so inconvenient and quite tasty is to use the overnight soak method except replacing the water with milk. One batch (1 cup dried oats with 4 cups milk) yields 4 breakfasts (I keep it in a tupperware). I do most of the seasoning in the initial boil: stick of cinnamon, dash of salt, about 4 teaspoons sweetener (mostly brown sugar), vanilla. Then after reheating in the morning I top with fresh fruit (blueberries and strawberries, pineapple, even grapes), crumbled walnuts, and a (small) dash of maple syrup. For folks who are into stevia, I've experimented with using that instead of some or all of the brown sugar and it tastes fine, though I personally don't worry about the little bit of sugar because it's not nearly enough to flunk the "dessert test."

Even a small bowl of this has amazing staying power. And it's quite delicious. With the milk and the nuts and the fruit and the oats it's got everything: protein, fiber, vitamins.

What if you are just physically not feeling well and don't want to eat a lot?

For example, this morning: I'm recuperating from some emotional stress (family melodrama!) and woke up with a sore back (very obviously stress-related).

I did go out and do my 14 minutes of exercise - a little shovelglove but mostly just slow marching in place, stretching, etc. - and feel a little better. But don't feel like eating much.

And I know I'll be having a big lunch today in just a few short hours.

So how's about this for my breakfast?

1. Trader Joe's Organic Toaster pastry (aka Pop Tart)
2. tiny leftover hunk of cheddar cheese
3. Coffee loaded with half-and-half and sugar
4. Water
5. Orange juice

Also, that's all I've got in the house for breakfast anyway.

Oh well ... some days are better than others! I'll go grocery shopping this afternoon, and make sure I have a better selection tomorrow! 8)

Thanks, I do now ... so this morning I had pretty much everything I posted earlier, plus more fruits and vegetables, plus a slice of ham. Yum! I love having "breakfast fruit salad" now!
