morning fuel?

Whenever I wake up in the morning, I'm quite hungry. I have to eat something before I go for a run, but I'm having trouble finding things that fill me up, but don't sit like lead in my stomach afterwards. For those of you who work out in the morning, what do you eat beforehand?

I usually have water, but if I am starving or going out for longer, I have a piece of fruit (small apple or clementine). For 60+ minutes, add a bit of protein like peanut butter.

little fruit and some nuts. Fruit digests quickly so you don't feel like you ate a brick, while the protien from the nuts helps prevent a sugar crash. (walnuts or almonds or pecans are a great choice.)

smoothies are good and the yogurt seems to make you feel fuller on less.

I recommend a half or whole banana, depending on what works for you. Maybe some juice or gatorade in addition to water.

I like to run on an empty stomach, to avoid getting side aches. I find that a little caffiene helps; it gives me a slight boost in energy and suppresses my appetite. After the run or workout, I eat something healthy and drink lots of water.

i've been running in the mornings for about 6 mo. now and i usually eat a handful of dried fruits and nuts (almonds or soy nuts) and drink a full glass of water to prevent feeling hungry mid-run. a small piece of fruit (like 1/2 banana) also sounds like a good idea.

I do not run, but I do do a gym workout in the mornings
I have been eating a smoothie, made with egg whts, milk, cottage cheese, strawberrys, a bannana, some oats, and flax seed

This is working for me, my workouts are almost 2 hours, and I get hungry before I am done, but this keeps me full most of the workout, alot of protein, and fiber

You are not alone, which is why I just can't exercise in the morning, my blood sugar is too low, but if I eat anything much at all it sits there in my stomach. Perhaps morning exercise is just not for you. It's just not for everyone.

New: The PEERtrainer Cheat System
The PEERtrainer Cheat System is a new, simple to follow system for eating. The objective is to help guide you towards a way of eating that will make it easier to lose weight, give you more energy and help you feel better. It is free, easy to follow, and a little unusual and controversial. Most of all it is working. This link will take you to a blog post where you can download a FREE copy of the Cheat System Diet Cookbook! The Cheat System has also been turned into a major book to be published May 6th, 2014. According to Srini Pillay, MD, Harvard Medical School: "It works in a real way with how human psychology works...I love that it relates closely to how the brain likes to function... without crazy effort and with significant short-term gains."
Here is a preview of the cover:
