Breakfast- High Fat or High Carb
 
Typically have a high-protein, higher fat breakfast but I always end up questioning my nutrition.

Why can't it just be balanced?

I question my nutrition a lot too, but what's been working for me lately is figuring it out not by "time-of-day," but by "time-in-relation-to-workout." I focus my carbs around my workout-- pre, during, and post. So if I have a morning workout, I'll consciously add more carbs to my breakfast, otherwise it's more fat and protein focused. At least, that's what works for me :)

Does the timing of nutrient intake matter to you?

Depends: Do you have a specific physique/performance goal?

There are quite a few solid diet plans, but each is oriented toward a certain outcome/goal.

Till I go back to school, I wouldn't mind lowering my bodyfat to about 10% (im around 12%).

As far as nutrient timing goes, I feel that centering my carbs around my workout is more ideal. I workout 530pm

I like my breakfast to be high in food.

well it depends... what do you weigh? how much do you lift? how fast can you run? what are your goals? what is your current diet? what is your current training program?

For those of you who prefer a High Fat/Low Carb Breakfast, how you do you feel in terms of energy? How long did it take you to adjust? Is your energy better? I want to experiment relying on carbs before and after the workouts (majority from starchy carbs like sweet potatoes) with more so fats for the other meals. Carb wise, I'd have a breakfast with around 40 grams (oats/potatoes).

Did you burn fat faster, how was your strength, etc?

Thanks.
