Oh, I totally meant to say have the protein shake with breakfast. It would not be filling on its own, but it will help.

Perhaps having a high-protein shake in the morning with breakfast would help? Both whey and soy protein powders provide 20-25 g of protein, so that may be a nice protein boost to start the day and keep up with your protein needs.

I wish you a wonderful Ramadan!

I've been looking at those Carnation drinks -- now I'm going to try them. Thanks!

Carnation Instant Breakfast is actually a really good thing to have. My sister had jaw surgery in Feb and that is what she drank to get her nutrients while her jaw was wired shut. You could also do protein shakes. Basically anything high in protein will help you feel full longer.

Have a Happy and Blessed Ramadan!

complex carbs and protein keep me full longest. yogurt and such have me starving two hours later!

I don't really have much advise to offer though cause I'm not much on eating when I first wake up. Usually I only have breakfast if my husband makes it for me, or I have something convenient and quick near by (like a bagel and some cheese or peanut butter), otherwise by time my brain catches up with my stomach, it's nearly lunch and I'm like why bother?

Looks like we are all on the same page as far as food choices.. I was going to say some kind of grains and fruits-- grains fill you and the druit provides energy! Best wishes to you,

One bite, one day, one pound at a time. Remember you are worth the effort!

Wow -- that sounds like me on a regular work week!

2 black bean patties in the a.m. (take about 3/4 c cooked black beans and separate into two portions then mash them, season them as you like, then cook them in a non-stick pan - they're great!), an egg any way you like it, Thomas whole wheat bagel thins with 1 tbsp low-fat cream cheese and 3-4 freshly sliced strawberries on top, 2 fresh figs and some tea orange juice to wash it down.

The fiber should see you through the main part of the day. Good luck! emoticon

Whole grains, shredded wheat, oatmeal.. things like that will keep you full for longer. Maybe start your day off with something like some Kanafeh and fruit (berries, etc...). Make sure to get calcium as well. During the daytime, be careful about sweating or being in the sun too much (we do not want you to pass out in the heat!)

I am not Muslim, but I have a lot of experience in Ramadan and have many friends that DO celebrate. Love this beautiful time for your religion! I'm sure you will find a nice balance and a way to make it work. :)

Eid Mubarak! XOXO

hey guys! so i am a muslim and the month of ramadan starts tomorrow. for those who aren't familiar with it, ramadan is a holy month in islam and one thing we do this month is fast from sun up until sundown. i am wondering if anyone else will be fasting and also if i can get some good recommendations for nutrient packed breakfasts.

the way the fasting works is that we wake up before sunrise and drink a lot of water and eat a normal sized breakfast (its tempting to eat a HUGE breakfast, but then your stomach stretches out and you end up STARVING later in the day). we don't eat or drink again until sunset and usually break our fast with water and 2 or 3 dates. then we have a dinner, or some people prefer to have two smaller meals; like a sandwich and then a salad.

i'm trying to find ideas for foods that will help me get my nutrients, but also stick to me throughout the day and fill me up. any suggestions?
