I read somewhere that a protein shake in the AM will help you lose weight? Is that just because you won't be as hungry when lunch comes around?
Penn State, would you mind discussing it here on the board? I'm sure there are several chubbies around (myself included) that wouldn't mind the continued discussion.Penn State said:PS: if you want to talk fat loss nutrition just e-mail or PM me i know some places with a wealth of information. I also have done quite a bit in the way of weight loss myself, so i have some knowledge in the area
Thats quite a comprehensive breakfast.ChipAllen said:Nice job, Penn State.
My typical breakfast - 2 whole eggs+1 egg white over 1 piece of whole grain bread along with a banana. Followed by lots of water and a multivitamin.
I won't eat the eggs 7 days a week; it's more like 4 to 5 days a week. The other days, I'll eat a little leftover chicken or whatever for the protein source. I always cook my eggs(and most everything else) in a little bit of olive oil instead of butter or animal fat. I'll also have a bowl of whole grain cereal from time to time but always try to include a fruit somehow. I typically grab the banana since it's so convenient. Lots of water is always on the menu.Trevor! said:Thats quite a comprehensive breakfast.
Tell me do you eat that everyday? What about cholesterol issues in eating those eggs each often?
Agreed. I also use olive oil in uncooked form - i.e. drizzled over veggies, in humus or in a homemade dressing, etc. For cooking, it's a great alternate to corn oils, butter or animal fats.arturo7 said:Olive oil is most beneficial uncooked. When exposed to heat the monounsaturaed fat molocules break down.
I also like the SHAKE idea on a morning, unfortunately I have to have my cup of tea and maybe some toast first. SO for me I get a cup of tea and toast and then about an hour later I have a shake w/ 1 banana, 1 apple, 1 plum. 1 tray of ice, skimmed milk, honey and 1-2 scoops whey protein powder and 2 PB&J sandwiches. I have a high motabolism so this shake really keeps me going, don't know how many calories it has along w/ the PB&J'sstoked said:My breakfast consists of 42g Myoplex whey protein(strawberry flavor) in a blender with 1 frozen banana(peeled b4 frozen) 8-10 oz cranberry juice and 4-5 cubes of ice. I get over 40oz of shake from this and estimated cal. is around 600. I don't feel tired at all during the day. It is fast to prepare before running off to work.
