Coffee with milk (6oz per double of espresso) lasts me most days until at least 2PM or later. Then it’s maybe a protein bar (or nothing) until ~ 5pm when I have a decently large dinner.
Sounds like a number of people who have answered are similar. I don’t really have energy problems - if I’m not doing anaerobic exercise, then there’s still enough fat on me to burn when walking/kayaking/etc.
@jpinard Do you just need a little food to get yourself going, or do you need a serious meal? Have you tried some basic stuff like oatmeal, bananas, protein bars, etc? Maybe you can find something gentle that will not bother your stomach too much, but will get your system going? At one point in my life I had nausea for a few months straight, and had to almost force feed myself - at that point, ensure drinks (with extra protein) and toast with a little butter were about the easiest thing I could consume to try and not lose weight. Ensure wasn’t exactly a culinary delight, but I found I could get it down, it didn’t upset my stomach, and it had enough protein, vitamins, etc to keep me going, and it is a pretty small volume to drink so it felt more manageable.
