What Breakfast Do You Eat and How Long Does It Keep You Full?
Posted Oct 22 2009 10:00pm
Following on from the post about breakfast, I thought it might be quite interesting to see what breakfasts other people eat and how long it keeps their hunger pangs at bay before they need anything else to eat.
Here is roughly what I eat breakfast on alternate days I don’t normally document what I eat each day, so this is just a day-to-day guide of what I eat.
Is one of my favourites and I have noticed like the study says, it does keep me for quite a while although I haven’t noted how long it is before I need something to eat again.
But having said that it does seem to keep me going for quite a while after eating it. I eat mine with semi skimmed milk. And have about four biscuits.
Scrambled Eggs on Wholemeal Bread
These is something I used to eat quite regularly for breakfast but haven’t done so recently, I would say overall that this particular breakfast can keep you going for a while before you need anything else to eat, this is probably due to the effect of the eggs. As they do tend to have a appetite suppressant effect, and the fibre in the wholemeal bread.
This is something I tend to eat on a regular basis, and to compare notes to the experiment it does keep me full for a long time I also add some sweetex just to give it a bit of flavour. And I tend to make it with water and semi skimmed milk sometimes.
This is something I have just been eating just recently as I had never really given much thought to eating muesli, but I do like the raisins and the chopped fruit etc that they put in it
This does seem to work quite well for me and can feel like I have had something to eat, probably up to about11:30 a.m.
Full English Breakfast
This is something I will eat every so often, I tend to use cooking oil to cook it and will have, some fried wholemeal bread, tinned tomatoes, a rash of bacon, and a fried egg.
Probably not as much as the researcher ate in his experiment, but it does keep you full for a long time I can certainly vouch for that.
So that in a nutshell is what I tend to eat a breakfast, maybe I should eat some fruit with my porridge etc just to make it a bit more interesting.
So what do you eat for breakfast and how long is it keep you full ?
