Why is breakfast so hard to eat?
I'm 3 weeks out and I seem to have hard time with breakfast. I've tried, eggs, protein pudding, protein shakes, cream of rice....everything I eat in the morning just doesn't sit well. By the time I get to lunch my pouch seems better. I wish I could find a way to make breakfast cause less discomfort.

I am still pre-surg but am one of those who can go without eating till evening and then eat everything in sight. I have now started drinking a protein shake in the morning and I have been feeling a lot better. I cannot imagine eating in the morning so I imagine I will be doing protein shakes in the morning for some time. Perhaps when I get to the pureed food stage, I might be able to have a bit of FF refried beans with some melted cheese and a couple of drops of bacon flavoring.
I understand the morning thing. I am just over a year out and I still can't do breakfast, never have been able to eat when I get up. I drink a hot protein drink when I wake at 530 and then at 9 or so, I can eat, but it is usually greek yogart. I just can't do dense anything in the morning. It comes back up or I feel sick the rest of the day. Once I get past 11am, then I am usually fine with whatever I eat. My physician said that sometimes our stomachs just dry out so much at night, that we need to 'prime' them with a lot of fluid before we eat dense food. Works for me and it seems to be working for my weight loss.

I'm 4 years out from RNY and I still have issues with breakfast. I usually have something light a shake or yogurt.
Over 6 months out and I do a protein shake in the mornings. Actually solids make my stomach feel terrible. I've had a few occassions where its been ok but the majority of the times I've tried, I've regretted. So I just stick to a shake. I have little kids so we have an early lunchtime of between 11am/Noon and by then I am fine.
Wish evening snacking would make me feel the way breakfast does!
Me too Amy! At night I find I can eat anything. My calorie total to today was 888 which seems like way more than other people eat at 3 weeks out. Most of those calories were eaten after 3pm. It seems like around 3 my stomach wakes up and then I could eat the entire rest of the day. This is not a good habit so early out. So tomorrow I'm trying tea first thing in the morning to see it that helps things any.
