    I too enjoy eating (and cooking) immensely, hence the girth I have attained. Fasting hasn't been so hard. Like depression and anxiety, I have found, distraction (which allows for time) is the key. (See, "time heals all wounds" IS true!) Intermittent fasting works with an eating window. Mine is 4-6 hours which essentially allows for lunch and dinner, and I try to eat healthy meals and absolutely no snacking. It hasn't been so hard really (except for the no bread part!) My previous long period of fasting way back when, some four days, was because I was smitten with a certain singer in grad school. Being in love has had that effect on me many times before. A modest Israeli girl, I realized before long that I was in love with her voice and not her. I actually ended up marrying her room mate. But that's another story.

    So as to have not sidetracked this thread too much - the breakfasts I enjoyed as a kid and still do, are a tuna fish sandwich on toast and hamburg gravy on toast (aka SOS) with lots of salt and pepper. (any left over meat in gravy on toast is good for breakfast) As an adult, homemade corned beef hash with a couple of over-easy eggs has been ideal. I won't object too much to the canned stuff (roast beef hash is good too), but I will complain a lot about the excess grease.

    Corned beef hash with two eggs over easy sounds pretty nice right now. Today it was Bacon, hash browns, wheat toast, and fried eggs with coffee.
    :D

    With an ocean view, it has been Bacon, cheesy scrambled eggs, toast, hash browns, and French press coffee.

    We went out today for breakfast at the suggestion of my wife. She had her Eggs Benedict, and I had the Biscuits & Gravy Special, with sausage and eggs.

    I tolerate eggs (sunny side up) if I have to: I never order them unless they're part of the dish (such as Steak & Eggs) but my solution is to douse them in steak sauce. That's why I ask for it when ordering Steak & Eggs. Steak is just fine without it.

    Romeo & Juliet. My English master Brother Sloan was insistent that Romeo did not love Juliet but was
    in fact in love with love itself. Taught me to be perceptive.

    Mom and sister are visiting, so I picked up a dozen donuts from Duck Donuts to have with our coffee.

    Doing intermittent fasting so won't break fast (hopefully) until this evening, but had a warmed over cup of coffee before leaving the house, and am sipping on hot water here at work.
