Hi lads,Geordie Sam here,everyday I have the same breakfast whether it's summer or winter.Porridge,three quarters of a cup of porridge,one cup of semi-skimmed milk,half a cup of water,some low calorie sweetener,and a smidgen of salt,to this I add a chopped Banana which I have softened in the Microwave.I forgot to mention a tea spoon of Cod Liver Oil as well.
I love Bacon and Eggs as a treat,but too many of those and they kill you.I'm 52 years of age, six feet tall,weigh 12 stone (168 pounds) and try to look after myself.I walk about 30 miles a week (NO fun in the winter) which also involves an awful lot of stair climbing,and lift weights at home in a small gym,my resting Heartbeat is 52 bpm.
All in all I would say I'm fairly fit.
Geordie Sam.

It is that time, Sam. A taxi is coming for me in half an hour to take me to the airport. I leave for Edinburgh in a few hours.

Well, I am just the opposite from you Sam. I'm almost 67 and have no clue what my resting heart rate is. I can tell you at this time it is beating. I am 5'10" tall and weigh in at 191 lbs.

I either eat one of two things for breakfast.

Breakfast #1:

Two eggs (either over medium, fried hard, or scrambled) beacon, two pieces of whole wheat toast, jelly on one of them, and a large glass of 2% milk.

Breakfast #2:

Two eggs scrambled with biscuits and sausage gravy, and a large glass of 2% milk.

Johnny, yours is the type of breakfast I have as a treat maybe three or four times a year. (#1. I am not a fan of biscuits and gravy.) At 5' 6" and 9 stone 2 (128 lbs.) I'm a wee bit small so it doesn't take much for me to be satisfied.

Pam I tell you what, next time old Freddy comes to visit I'll have the wife whip up one of her biscuit and sausage gravy breakfasts and we will put some meat on old Freddy's bones. Smile

128 lbs? Don't stand outside in a strong wind.Smile

I'm in my very late 30's Tongue

I'm 192 cm tall (think that's about 6' 3" or so) and I weigh anything from 88-90 kg (196-200 lbs)
I work out in a gym 3 times a week lifting weights, doing stretches and running the cross fit machine (until I have burnt away 350 calories) Biggrin

I eat the same breakfast 5 out of 7 days a week, only changing it during weekends where I drink a drinkable Youghurt (don't know what you call that in English) have a dry piece of rye bread (the type with a lot of corn in it) and a cup of coffee on Saturdays and scrambled egg and lots of bacon plus a wholemeal bread.

5 days of the week I have 3 pieces of thick toasted whole meal bread - one with orange marmalade, one with peanut butter and one with raspberry marmalade. To this I drink two mugs of strong coffee and a glass of milk (4%)
Then I enjoy a plate of either orange Youghurt or peach & raspberry Youghurt with some muesli on Smile

Both of my grandfathers ate the same breakfast every day. My moms dad was 6'1" and 225lbs
He ate oatmeal with a few raisins in it with two slices of toast every morning. He passed away at age 79 after his third heart surgery. My dads dad was 5'4 145lbs. He ate six soft boiled eggs over 3 pieces of toast covered with at least two tablespoons of butter in a bowl about 9 am every morning after the morning milking was over. He passed away at age 94 having never been to a doctor since having ulcers at age 55.

Me, I like a varied beakfast. Eggs a few times a week if I have the time and oatmeal or shredded wheat if I don't. I get cranky if I don't have my breakfast Tongue

Most of the times for Breakfast I would have a cup of Oatmeal or Porridge, a few Raisins (or some fresh fruit), either plain or with cinnamon, nutmeg or mace in it, and one egg.

Other times I have two fried eggs, two slices of toast, hash brown potatoes (with onions, bell peppers, mushrooms), and a meat (sausage, bacon, corned beef hash, pork chop, steak, fried chicken steak).

Sometimes I will have flapjacks/pancakes or french toast.

Sometimes I will also have a soft boiled egg on toast.

As in everything YMMV.

Hi Sam. Personally, I don't know what I'm having from one meal to the next. It just depends on my mood. And maybe what's on the menuBiggrin.

Usually, meaning during the workweek, breakfast is a Greek Coffee, with two slices of dry toast with wild Greek honey and a banana. Although I would love to eat the standard breakfast fare of bacon, eggs and potatoes on a daily basis, not sure how good that would be for my health and cardiovascular system.

What ever routine works for you and you enjoy that is the bottom line. My routine for breakfast at home is a container of yogurt
(none Greek), cold cereal with lactose free milk. Then an hour later
juice and some type of bread or roll. I love bacon and sausage but only have it on occasion.
