well, I'm the laziest girl ever and I savour every extra minute of sleep I can get in the mornings - so I always have an Up n Go (sanitarium) for breakfast.. I love it because I just grab it out of the fridge on my way out and I can drink it in the car on my way to uni! It keeps me going until morning tea, when i usually need a light snack..

best thing, is the ones that taste like iced coffee :D and it's all the nutrition of two weetbix and milk...

Just keep an eye on those flavoured porridge sachets. I used to eat them every morning until I read the ingredients - the second ingredient is sugar!

I was a bit upset but have chosen to eat vita brits with dried apricot pieces on them instead.

I kinda like routine and although I wouldn't mind eating something different for breakfast, I'm having trouble changing my habits!!!

I'm so bad, I know I should eat a big breakfast but I usually just have a mug of skim milk milo or tea... or maybe a banana if I feel like it, but I just feel sick if I eat in the morning :( Anyone else like me?

im not a breakfast person either madz :( when i was at school id always rather sleeping in that extra bit then getting up for breaky lol. i think as long as you have something it will help kickstart your metabolism for the day. i heard the other day its important to eat breakfast because theres such a big gap between bed time and breakfast that your body is fasting hence the name BREAK (stop) FAST (fasting). lately ive only been having a glass of milo to get me going.

There's no way I could ever go without breakfast! Normally it's the first thing I think of when I wake up in the morning (although on the weekdays I've been waiting till after finish at the gym to eat).

One night, think it was last week, I woke up in the middle of the night, thought it was morning, and started preparing my breakfast!! I looked at the clock twice and finally comprehended what it said the third time I looked. It said 11:30pm... I could have sworn it said 6:30am, or maybe 7:30am!

That's habit for you :roll:

i'm exactly the same sarah! i wake up & feel hungry within minutes & i think it's because i'm so conditioned to eating soon after i wake up. i've just always done it.

i mostly have toast in the mornings before work but on weekends i love baked beans (on toast) or grilled tomatoes & mushrooms (on toast) or lean bacon (on toast). hmmm. i have carb issues!
