Cheesecake for breakfast?
17, on SS, naturally lean, trouble eating a lot in one sitting.
Breakfast is the hardest meal for me to be hungry for. Not sure why. I've tried McDonald's but it keeps me full for too long so milk is hard to drink for a while. Eggs have gotten stale. Shakes make me nauseous after drinking them the entire school year.
I was thinking I could just eat food that I really liked for the remainder of SS, which has the benefit of really upping my calories, theoretically.
What do you guys think of having cheesecake for breakfast if I'm young and training hard with decent genetics?
This is only for another 3 weeks or so, before football starts. I want to gain as much weight as possible before then.
Personally, I think of a "good meal" as having a decent amount of protein at least. I'm not sure how much is in cheesecake, but you should check.
As someone who did GOMAD for several months, I have to say I wouldn't recommend jumping directly into a very high calorie diet. If I could do things over again, I'd increase the daily calories by a few hundred or so, see what that did for my lifts, and bump it up if it wasn't enough. Cheesecake for breakfast for just 3 weeks shouldn't destroy you or anything, though. Just make sure your lifts are increasing and that a good portion of your weight gains are muscle.
What foods do you enjoy?
I have a similar problem, fussy eater and not really hungry in the morning.
Cheesecake for breakfast sounds awesome. Not sure wht it will do for the bulking/strength improvements, but still sounds awesome!
After a week, I can report that it is great. I eat a third of this 9-dollar cheesecake each morning, along with a banana and some full-fat cream (separately) and get 1000 calories without even trying.
Don't do it if you're fat.
Simple answer is you don't have to eat breakfast if you don't want to. Just get the your food in the rest of the day.
I would guess that that's too little protein. Add a protein shake.

Protein intake over the whole day is what is important not intake per meal.

Maybe once a week, but you should start establishing good dietary habits at this stage of your training. Cooking good food like eggs, oatmeal, steak, etc is a good place to start, so that once you want to take the body fat off, you already have these good habits ingrained.
