How soon after you wake up do you eat breakfast?
Since my bypass, I am just not hungry in the mornings I wake up at 5 15 am and start work at 630 am and I don't eat breakfast till 8 or so. Just not hungry but I will drink and maybe eat a few peanuts.

Before surgery, I had a blood sugar drop that I could feel (sick to my stomach) and it would last about 5 minutes then be done about an hour after I woke up. Instead of eating, I just ignored it. Stupid! So I am working hard at listening to my signals and obeying them. Eggface had something on her blog about understanding your soft cues and I am trying to learn mine. Seems like mine is a deep breath. The breakfast thing will be a struggle for me but I am hoping that by eating breakfast on a regular basis, I may become hungry in the morning for it.

If you can't eat, drink. Do protien coffee or a shake (yuck) that might be helpful.
I'm not so sure that it's breakfast per se that needs to be consumed withing that 30- to 60-minutes within waking up that's so important as it is to take in some kind of nourishment...I'm still off on LOA for the coming week and I rise at about 7:00 am...take my Flintstone Chewables and am sucking down that first protein shake by 7:30 am...actually eating breakfast around 9.
