Tinned tuna, mackeral and sardines. Not typically seen as a breakfast dish, but they are healthy and filling. Have protein and omega oils. Very convenient, just open and go. Depending where you are they often come with a range of different sauces. Do not eat at your desk at work.

Add powdered protein (whey, soy, whatever your preference) to your drink (almond milk is fine). Crack a few eggs in a pan and scramble them (takes <5 mins total). High protein cereal. Several types exist including one by Kashi More whole grains- Oatmeal works well for example. Don't add sugar to your meal or drink as sugar is an appetite stimulant

The problem is that, on waking, there is very little blood in your stomach or digestive system until the body realizes that it needs to get some blood there ready to do some digestion. It's the same effect as running on a hot day and getting a bit dehydrated. In that case, much of your blood is in your muscles and skin (to keep your muscles moving and lose ...

Ive checked the book I recommended in the comment. It is written by a PhD Robert K. Cooper nad is entitled "Flip the switch". A simplification of what you could read there is as follows: We have limited storage space for excess protein, and the amino acids from them remain in the bloodstream for only about 4 hours. thats a good reason to include proteins ...

It's not just protein that will keep you full for longer but also fat and fibre (vegetables/whole grains). Which is why the best breakfast I find has some combination of eggs and veggies. I would strongly recommend against eating some kind of breakfast sandwich from a restaurant/cafeteria although a homemade sandwich is great. I also recommend staying away ...

If you don't find yourself up to eating something filling like oatmeal, eggs, or toast, I would suggest a fruit/protein smoothie. For instance you could quickly blend together something along the lines of: 1 banana 1/2 cup of assorted berries Tablespoon of honey 2 tablespoons of oats Some protein powder Milk / water / ice While this is normally my ...

You're eating too much grains and sugar. The carbs from the wheat and almond milk you eat make you crave early. They cause an early sugar boost that doesn't take long to be absorbes by your body. This leads to a sugar crash. This is when you why you get hungry again before luchtime... Solution: Try adding more healthy fats and protein to your meals. For ...

First, I would recommend drinking 16oz (.5L) of water soon after waking. This is not a fun experience, and it might take a minute or two to get it all down, but it will grant you (at least) two things: Improved workout Increased metabolism/hunger

I can recommend a few cheap & low prep meals for you: 2 bean burritos & 100 calorie guacamole packs (18g protein) - The guac changes these from a $1 meal into a $3 meal. You could also add cheese or salsa to really pep it up. Jimmy Deans D-Lites (18g protein) - Since you're already into sandwiches, these should be better for you. Hard-boiled eggs ...

I would second the recommendation for www.myfitnesspal.com or similar, and I would also recommend picking up a basic nutrition book. I would also caution you against revamping your diet in such a drastic way until you understand your needs a little better. The diet you have listed is one that I'm afraid will introduce deficiencies, and I don't think it ...

Since you say non-vegetarian is fine. Whey Protein and Eggs will be your best source (technically that's still vegetarian in some books, but I won't dwell on the details of boundaries among various vegetarians). Just get straight, simple whey protein that you can buy in a bulk package at your local grocery store, it's a lot cheaper than getting it in a tub ...

My first piece of advice will be to avoid casein protein, as it has a high cancer risk associated with it. Going vegetarian isn't the best choice if protein is your goal. Eggs are your best bet for breakfast, assuming you use half (or less) of the yolk. Omelets, eggs on toast, scrambled eggs, etc. - Omelets are great because you can mix in all kinds of ...

A search for "crockpot breakfast" or "slow cooker breakfast" will turn up wonder results. You can do the prep at night, start the cooker, and have to do nothing in the morning but eat. The only downside is many of the recipes can't be scaled down below two servings. So you'll need to find a friend to eat the other half. On the plus side, even if you waste ...
