    Hey Guys :)

    Over the past few weeks I've read several articles on how eating breakfast plays a major role in weight loss. Obviously I drink a shake every morning on my way to work for breakfast. But all the articles have said the same thing: That in order to jump start your metabolism, breakfast should be within an hour of waking. :8855:

    Unfortunately, I wake up at 5:45am, and start getting ready for work... at 6:20, i wake up Ayleigh to get her ready for school. I get her downstairs at about 6:45, and she takes her nebulizer treatment and then I nag her to eat breakfast until we need to go.. somewhere between 7:05 and 7:15. I drop her off a school where we she has this strange routine that she needs to go through before I can leave the daycare without her screaming and in tears... (it involves her favorite stuffed hippo.. don't ask :8855: ) I'm out of the day care at about 7:30 and then I make a quick stop at Wawa for my bottle of water and cigarettes :eek: and I'm on the road for the next 45 mins or so to work.

    Now that i've ran you through my morning schdule, lol... I don't drink my shake until 7:45 in the morning. That's two hours after i've woken. Now, at about 9:30.. my stomach starts talking.. and I hold out until about 10:30 to eat my morning snack. It's entirely feasible to drink my shake early, but then as I typically get hungry 2-3 hours after I've drank it.. that would leave me entirely ravenous for my snack and or lunch. And when I'm ravenous... I'll eat everything I see. :8855:

    So my question is... do you think that if I ate something else in that one hour window.. something small like a piece of string cheese... that I would be benefiting my diet more... even though I'm essentially adding an extra 100 cals? I dunno, there is science behind this article...and anything that helps is always a plus.. but I'm just afraid that if i drink my shake that early, I'll be super hungry beyond control.

    Opinions please! :D
