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'm the same way. Breakfast is always the hardest. It's like my pouch isn't awake yet. By lunch I'm good. I always eat light in the morning. Nothing to heavy or dense. If I do eat dense protien it's usually very little.

My dietitian went over morning routine with me. She suggested that I drink hot tea in the morning to relax and kick start my pouch. It has help me so far. Good luck.

I'm 5 months out and I still have problems with breakfast. I have coffee at 7 then at 9:30-10 I can eat peanutbutter toast or a protein bar. I have to wait atleast 2.5 hours to eat otherwise it will come right back up!

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.

I can only do a protein shake or a container of Activia Light.  Food and mornings have never gone together for me.

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.

I have been enjoying quite a few of the fruity Celestial Seasoning's teas lately, especially the blueberry.  Also, Bigelow's Vanilla Chai tea to which I add some stevia and nonfat powdered milk.  That is a real treat.
