I am currently in Fink Ironman training mode and trying to think about diet and nutrition. I tend to do a bit of training in the morning and usually go for an oat based cereal/muesli afterwards with some dried fruit as its portable and can be eaten at work if neccessary.

The problem is I then tend to snack on the cereal as its so easy to eat when im in the house!

What do people tend to eat for breakfast? Any good alternatives? Im up for trying something new...

Has to be accompnied by coffee though!!

I usually have greek yoghurt and fruit (usually 2 clementines).

But after an early morning Fink session, I need a slice of wholemeal toast too, as I am starving

Most mornings a cup of coffee

Pre a long run I have porridge or bagel with honey

Museli topped with mini shredded wheat. Sometimes with toast and marmalade, sometimes without.

Pre-LSR or ride or race I'll scoff porridge. I used to like porridge a lot, but have really gone off it since starting this exercising crap.

I mostly eat porridge with honey and banana. A more luxurious breakfast at the weekend may consist of brown seeded bread toasted and topped with smoked salmon and garnished with scrambled eggs. Yummm.

Aha! First sensible brekkie from DK! I am most partial to cold sheek kebab (or poo on lettuce as Mrs DB calls it)

Nuked chow mein as well and cheeseburgers are a well used favourite along with the full fry up. Sometimes as well as.

If you mean race brekkie, well, boring old couple of bananas, plus an eat natural cereal bar for anything over a half, no cereal bar for anything under.

IM brekkie, cold tin of rice pudding with a handful of raisins & coffee.

See, I can be sensible....

If im not training until the evening and not feeling too trashed from the night before i might have a thin beef steak on spinach, or if im doing a turbo / run in the morning ill have scrambled eggs on toast with chilli and spinach

Cold porridge left over night in the fridge (uncooked) with honey for the weekend

On a work day...peanut butter and banana sandwich in the car between pool and work!
On a non work day - porridge with dates/raisins/apple and lots of honey
and plenty of coffee

I have 2 slices of brown toast with marmite and honey, and a glass of orange juice and a cup of tea, pretty much without fail every day. On work days I also have a bowl of orange slices as they are free!

I tend to do any exercise first thing in the day, so before I eat at all, though in the recent cold weather I have taken to bringing a cup of tea into the garage with me to drink while I turbo!

If I have done something a bit longer at the weekend I try to have the above before I exercise, then go gently ballistic on recovery drink, chocolate, anything I can find afterwards!

Definitely a case of MTFU!  Next you will be drinking hot chocolate with marshmallows in and powdered glitter on top!

OK, I will admit to the odd green tea with lemon going out to the garage with me to warm up on the turbo. But it is in a mug!
