My dilmena about eating breakfast 3 hours earlier is that I get up at 3:45 to go to the gym at 4:00 a.m. Then I return home get ready for work and eat my oatmeal at that time. Is that ok?

I get up at 4:50 to get on the treadmill. It's that or nothing.

I have this mission that I really have to start eating oatmeal. I just do not really enjoy the texture but I know how great it is for me. Our family eats lots of whole foods and we take our Vidazorb probiotic everyday so that we can process these good for us foods. I have been trying to expand many of the foods we eat and include and try new recipes. I know oatmeal seems so simple...just wish there was a way I could "look forward" to it. Although I do have a homemade granola bar recipe with flax that maybe I should start making more often! Thanks for the ideas :)

Look for steel cut oats instead of rolled oats. Nowhere near as mushy or slimy as my daughters say.

These comments don't even make sense.

Why would you wake up at 3:45?? What time do you go to bed, 7pm? Strange.

Um, for the July 4 commenter, you get up at early to exercise because you have a job to go to. All this advice about eating right is great but some of these studies don't take into account the reality for those of us who MUST work to pay the mortgage and the bills. I drag my butt out of bed at 6 a.m. to exercise but it's a chore because I am never in bed before 11 or midnight ... because there's always stuff that has to be done. I wish, wish, WISH some of this was done with a real life in mind!!!

You people are putting way tooo much thought into this. Why dont you just stop stuffing your self. Only eat when you are honestly hungry. If you don't do much during the day, you probably do not need to eat all that much. Food is for energy, so if your laying around all day or getting ready to go to bed DON'T EAT! You don't need energy for bed. You can live 3 weeks without food. Especially fat people. Only a week without water. So start drinking more water and do some less eating and things will start looking up . HAHA! Eat a Small breakfast and you will find your self not hardly being hungry at all during the day. True!

The best breakfast is no breakfast at all. No need to spike your sugar and start up the digestion cycle needlessly. Hunger is basically limbic in the mornings, and will just grow more severe if you start eating small carb-laden meals that will send your blood sugar spiraling out of control and the addictive substances in grains and sweets rekindling your addiction to grains and sugars. If you have to eat something, go for protein and fat-based meal, and keep veggies and fruit for the evenings. Grazing just ramps up appetite, particularly on grains and fruit and sugar, and you will end up craving sweets in the afternoon, overeat at dinner, if not today, but than a few days down the road. Clean your life from all the muslies, toasts, fat free yogurts and sugars, get out of bed nice and early, have a good productive day till you feel hungry, eat some meat and eggs with some crunchy veggie thrown in, then have supper of a nice slab of meat or fish and veggies, maybe a handful of berries and go to bed comfy and full. Sleep tight, get up nice and early, move about, play, lift heavy, eat only what you've cooked from fresh ingredients... rinse, repeat and see your energy grow and grow and grow while your body becomes slender and muscular. That's the natural way of things, the way we were designed to exist & we were before grains and dairy made us sick and fat.
