You’ve heard it before, “breakfast is the most important meal of the day.”

And although I’m not entirely sold on this claim, I do believe that if you’re a naturally skinny guy who has a hard time gaining weight, training yourself to have a hefty breakfast may be critical.

Let’s take the study by Kellogg’s, for example, where they compared individuals who ate breakfast and individuals who fasted until lunch time.

One group had 600 calories at breakfast while the other group completely skipped this so-called “critical meal”. Later, at lunch time, both groups were given an all-you-can-eat buffet. Not surprisingly, they found that the group that skipped breakfast “overate”—in comparison to those who did not skip their morning meal—by 15%.

That said, however, the average consumption at lunch was 1000kcal—meaning that, although those individuals who skipped breakfast did eat more at lunch (1,150kcal), the total number of calories was still higher in the individuals who ate breakfast (1,600kcal).

This isn’t to say that you have to eat breakfast to gain weight and build muscle, but it can certainly make achieving that goal much easier.

That said, today I want to share 5 easy-to-make, high calorie breakfast recipes to help start your day off on the right track.

If you’re having a hard time eating enough to grow, get your day started with one of these meals and get a nice head start on your calories.

Bonus: High Protein Cereal

  • 1 cup Cereal (your choice)
  • 2 scoops Whey Protein
  • 4oz Greek Yogurt
  • 1 cup Whole Milk

Total Calories: 570
Macros: 61P/57C/11F


  1. Pour milk into a blender, add whey and yogurt, and blend.
  2. Use this protein shake as the milk for your bowl of cereal.

I love cereal as much as the next guy; however, it’s never really been a great source of protein. So what better way to start off your day than a bowl of your favorite cereal while also getting a ton of protein?

Not hungry in the morning? No problem.

You see, our metabolism is extremely adaptive. So although you may not be hungry in the morning now, it doesn’t mean you can’t train your body to crave breakfast.

Start off by “forcing” yourself to have a small protein shake or glass of orange juice every morning upon rising. After a few days you’ll notice you’ve got a small appetite in the morning. Over time, slowly increase the size of your breakfast and watch your metabolism adapt. It won’t be long before you’re eating big hefty breakfast meals and enjoying them!
