This is a question to women around 135-155 lbs who eat bacon. This morning I ate bacon only for breakfast. I wanted to know how much bacon you think you would eat if you ate only bacon for breakfast. Also please note the thickness of the bacon. I ate 3 thick slices at home and then got 6 more at work! Maybe to much bacon... I didn't eat much yesterday though. 1. How much bacon you eat at breakfast? Bacon only or how much bacon combined with other food. 2. how thick the slices are?

I drain it, one of my co-workers collects it every three weeks or so for cooking. He is not Paleo, but he is a pal. Bacon eaten alone or with some greens makes me feel excellent.

So u eat nothing but bacon until dinner? My question to you is, what do you do with all the spare bacon grease, organic to boot, from cooking 2 dozen bacon slices per day?

@Joy I'm 5'6 and 155....most girls im around, who are my height or taller, tend to be in the 125-140 range. im nowhere near the body comp id like to be, but im the "normal" range at appx 28%. ive come to accept the fact that even if i lean out, ill still be 140ish...but then i think about what my muscular stature can do in comparison to their waiflike frames and im okay with that :D

Dr. K, I didn't know you were a 135-155 lb woman.

I am not too worried about toxins. The bacon I use comes from local farmers I can talk to about the pigs' lifestyles. I do not buy "conventional" bacon (or any other factory-farmed meat, due to health and ethical reasons).

Hey - I never said I never eat it anymore - I just don't make it a staple.

I am formerly obese and have lost over 100lbs. That's where I have to keep them or I gain. I have been losing/maintaining for over 7 years now and I've tried over and over to raise them, but it just doesn't work.

Nah its fine lol. I am still struggling to understand how people can weigh so much less than me and be around the same height! I have struggled with my weight my whole life and I am def not fat at 5"4' or 5"5' and 144 pounds. I guess different body types, different compositions account for the difference?

It's kind of like the tortilla chips with salsa I used to eat at Mexican restaurants. I could eat it forever and never get full. I think Bacon is tastier!

1363 · September 19, 2011 at 4:40 PM

OK for quick reference it seems most people eat between 2-4 thick slices with 2-4 eggs. I think I would have been good if I had of cooked 4 slices instead of 3 or maybe added some tomatoes to the pan. I'm trying to cut down on eggs atm cos I have a bit of an intolerance.

I am 5'2" and 140ish lbs. I try to keep my calories around 1200-1400 per day.

When I eat bacon for breakfast, I usually have something with it, typically 2 eggs. I eat 2 to 3 slices of bacon as a serving. I prefer the thick cut bacon and will only eat 2 slices of that, for sure. If it's a thinner bacon, then 3 slices.

4 slices of thick, restaurant-style bacon. 3 scrambled eggs with kale, green onions and radish.

I definitely have been known to eat nothing but bacon for breakfast...with my tea, of course...I buy Applegate Farms bacon ends most of the time, they are much more affordable, and I bake them in a large cast iron skillet full of raw bacon, then eat about half of that...kind of a lot, but I do just fine with it.

I try to limit myself to 4 pieces when I cook it. It's hard though. I do love some bacon!

12 slices of fat back, organic bacon every morning (5 AM) followed by 6 slices around 10:30AM, and six slices around 2:30 PM (all with lot's of water).

Skirt Steak for Dinner with Kale, Spinach, Parsley, Dandelion Greens, and Green Chard.

Running at about 9.5% body fat for almost 2 years now.

Usually 3 medium slices along with a couple of overeasy eggs. Maybe some avocado too. Definitely recommend eating bacon and guac together mmm. I'm 5'8 1/2" and about 135-140lb.

I eat 2 pieces of thick bacon with two eggs fried in the bacon grease, if I eat breakfast.

Sometimes I have a smoothie (with no bacon, lol), and sometimes I have no breakfast at all.

I'm 5'8", 155 lb.

I could eat 6 Kirkland brand Costco bacon slices (medium thick) if I ate alone. Otherwise 2-4 with eggs and pastured butter.

I LOVE bacon... and I agree with vdh... I never seem to get full on it. I am 5'4 / 150. When I eat breakfast I eat 3 pieces thick cut, 2 eggs and 1 piece of cheese. I can't eat just bacon, I don't feel full. I also drink about 4 cups of coffee with just under 1/4 cup of cream. The days I don't eat breakfast I just drink the coffee and cream :)

I avoid bacon just because it's just a O6 and PUFA bomb. There probably a lot of fat soluble toxins in them too.

I tend to eat a panful of bacon at a time. Sometimes I'll have more than one panful a day. It's satisfying for me, but I don't ever feel over-full on it, and usually have it along with something else (cheese, eggs, heavy cream with tea added to it, etc).

I'm about 5'3" and 125 lbs.

ETA: oops, that's not the range you were looking for. Sorry!
