Adam, I also have to respectfully disagree with you: If you take a closer look at the Ronald McDonald-version of me right there to the left, that's the version that ate breakfast. The Pukie-version is the breakfast-skipping version.

No scientific explanation. Just confidence in your own body's ability to say yea and/or nay.

And if you maintain a generally high activity level, you won't dive and crash metabolically.

At least that goes for me: Breakfast makes me slow, coffe on an empty stomach makes me crystal clear.

Wow! Some great info here. Some of my other current stats:

Ht 6'1"
Fight Gone Bad 291
CFT 745
Front Squat 235
Michael 29:36

So not setting the world on fire.

I am definately hungry at breakfast and I eat it religiously. Usu. protein for that is the same, 4 large eggs + breakfast meat = approx 28 g protein + 10 g protein = 38 g. More or less the same amount of protein times four or five meals a day = 180-200 g

I eat several small meals throughout the day. I think some increased fat and smaller portions might help though.

Also, will try tabata/rowing interval stuff on top of WOD and will throw in a HIIT/HOC every now and then. This should give me a good baseline to judge from.

George, thanks for the list. I'm down with all of them except camping, the Marine Corps ruined it for me!

Thanks to all.

Bri

Fair enough Gorm, each individual can and does vary, like I said, I'm a bit of a freak in my hatred of coffee:happy: and maybe my obsession with breakfast too...

Cheers,
Adam

Adam-

There are many people on this site who do not eat breakfast, instead choosing to IF from the previous evening meal until the noon or later meal the next day (just an FYI).

Sorry for the probably silly question Jason, but what does "IF" stand for? Like I said, I am not going to say that eating breakfast is the only way, it's just the only way that works for me =) Others can, and probably do, vary. I also need to get about 6500+ calories per day just to maintain weight at 180lbs 6'2" 8% BF so I like my meals as often as possible.

Cheers,
Adam
