A lurker wants to know,
"If you had a Gastric Bypass, how come you can eat so much at breakfast?"
Well, the truth is I don't eat all that at one meal. I eat my egg whites around 6:30 and the Oatmeal (or my healthy-carb-of-choice) around 9:00. In doing so though, often I don't eat a morning snack, unless it's a protein drink. Oatmeal is pretty filling and sticks to me for a while.
Sometimes I have my egg whites with a low carb/whole wheat tortilla, then I don't have a "second" breakfast, so to speak, since I got my carbs in earlier that morning.
Unfortunately Eggs are a challenge for me sometimes; they're such a great source of protein! Sometimes they are pouch friendly, and sometimes they are not. If I'm not careful as to how I cook them (I cannot whip them to make them fluffy) or, if I don't cook them with something else, like meat or cheese and mix them together before eating, the whites get stuck and I get sick... lovely, I know. It's really embarrassing to get sick at work and it's happen like 4 times now. It's only thing that seems to bother me.
Breakfast is usually, and intentionally, my biggest meal of the day. So if it takes me a while to eat and get all the nutrition in, that's fine with me. :)
Thanks for the question.
