It takes approximately 4 hrs for digestive system to wake up to full function after you wake up and get out of bed.
That means, dumping any solids in 20 minutes after you got up is only ruining your digestive system.
First solid food should be taken 4-5 hrs after you got out of bed.
Ideally, only clean lukewarm water should be taken initially, to "flush the system". I add 3 raw eggs to it, drink them raw. I have chicken farm, my eggs are healthy.
Then I have first solid food around 9 am at work. I wake up at around 4, I am normally at the gym 5 am.

Skip breakfast.

Very cheap.

The old wives tale that breakfast is the most important meal of the day is not true.

Most of us overeat. So eating less is good for most of us.

Works for me. Not for everyone.

I don't overeat. Eating less isn't an option. Your body needs fuel, so feed it something. I'm rarely hungry first thing in the morning, but I eat when I eventually am. Some people don't eat, snack in the evening and are starving when they wake up. You're telling them to not eat?

Eggs are solid food. In fact, eggs are high in protein so they are one of the hardest on your stomach.

The state of the edible part of an egg is not solid food. It's liquid food. The exception is the insignificant membrane.

A good breakfast is a wise way to start the day. Avoid dead animals, sugar, dairy, and other alkaline foods. An avocado, a red, sweet grapefruit, and a boiled egg will stay w/ you a long time. If you don't do eggs, make it an apple or something. Almonds would make it stretch even further before you got hungry, but they're not particularly cheap. The idea is to avoid processed, acidic foods, and foods that have a high glycemic index. Not good to start the day spiking your blood sugar. You need saturated fat to stay full, as well as a food like grapefruit that has a very low glycemic index to break down slowly. Almond milk, pineapple, and miso soup are great in the morning too.

That's totally bogus. Your digestion wakes up when you wake up. It never went to sleep. A good shower before you have breakfast and some mild stretching is healthy too. Gets your circulation going and helps wake you up. Your typical American breakfast of acidic coffee, acidic citrus juice, a slice of dead animal, butter and jelly on processed wheat derived bread, and white potatoes (w/ a glycemic index close to pure glucose) that are fried in unhealthy, fatty oils is a fine way to kill yourself. Same w/ processed wheat derived pancakes covered w/ butter and drenched w/ molasses or corn syrup. See you in the coronary unit!

Eggs are hard on your stomach? Where do these wacky unscientific ideas come from?

Two eggs and a big green salad.

This time of year, most of it comes right out of my backyard.
