I've just recently started working out and dieting, I'm currently 160lbs and 5'1. I was told to consume approx 1300 calories a day. When I try to eat breakfast I feel like I'm full so quickly and sometimes I'll gag trying to finish what I made. For example this morning I had 3/4 a cup of activia yogurt mixed with about 4 ounzes of pineapple, is it possible the reason I feel sick in the morning is that I'm eating too much sugar first thing or eating to soon after I wake up? I eat about 20 minutes after I get up, working at 6am, lunch isn't normally until 11, so I would be starving if I waited until then to eat. Also I've been feeling like there's a rock in my stomach the last few days, I don't know how to explain it, it feels like I'm hungry but when I try to eat I feel way to full.........................is there something specific that I may be eating to much (or not enough of) that could be causing that? Or is it possible it's just my body getting used to not being packed full of junk because I used to be able to eat a lot more and not feel this way?
A typical day (Always drink at least 8 glasses of water)
3/4 cup of activia yogurt, 4 ounzes of pineapple
1/2 cup of 1% cottage cheese
1/2 of a green bell pepper
Whole wheat tortilla with 2 slices of turkey, teaspoon of mustard, loose leaf lettuce, one slice of mozarella
Lettuce wrapped one slice of turkey
Tomato and Red Pepper Soup (120 cal), 1 slice of whole wheat toast with 3 hard boiled egg whites on it only.
1 glass of v8 juice
100 calories pack of popcorn
P.S Sorry this is so long!!
i have a hard time eating breakfast right away. i tend to wait for at least an hour or so before i eat, ESPECIALLY if i eat late at night I am very not hungry in the morning. also-- i have noticed that milk products in the morning arent great for me.
maybe try a low cal english muffin (good fiber! 110 cal) to munch on in the morning then have the pineapple or the yogurt a little bit later.
what is your calorie intake? eyeballing it it seems a little low too.
You said you've just started doing this so give your body some time to get used to it. If you didn't used to eat breakfast much it just needs time to adjust.
Thanks alot guys, at least I know my body isn't freaking out and trying to kill me. I think i have to eat boring boring boring breakfast if I don't have a lot of time from the time I get up to when I have to leave for work! Glad to know I'm not the only thanks again!
