    Question first meal of the day.. carb/pro vs fat/pro

    hey i was wondering what would happen if instead of my first meal being oatmeal and protein.. i would change it to protein and fat in the form of eggs and bacon? whats the disadvantage of it if any...?

    Bulking or cutting, I use fat and protein for my first meal of the day. I do cardio 6-7 days a wk for 50 minutes whther bulking or cutting, and that first meal allows me to keep fat off while bulking up. I put 1/2 of my calories down in two meals following training, with the 4 meals before training split with the remaining cals

    I usually drink a protein shake right when I get up, just so I have something in me until the eggs are done and what not.

    I would probably just go with eggs and ditch the bacon, and just get whatever fat i need from the eggs. If you wanted to keep the bacon in, thats probably alright, but thats just what i would do.

    Btw, I would go for no less then 400g protein/day.

    I dont insist that you have to take a protein shake prior your 1st meal, It just your first meal of the day is 2 eggs and 2 slices of bacon only 14g of protein that aint ****, I would actually save the shake for a later time and just eat a ****load of eggs in the morning

    eggplanet, why would you ever have Whey&Dex first thing in the morning, I hope you dont do cardio right after cause that would basically be pointless, as for fatloss purposes

    i was thinking that my body has been depleted after my sleep..i was thinking that i should send some protein into my muscles asap..and thought that dex will spike some insulin and transport the whey faster..so i'm doing the wrong thing? what should i be eating and how much the moment i awake then?

    It'll transport it alright, directly into FAT STORES.
    Sleeping does NOT prime your body for the uptake of glucose!!!!!!!!
