How much bacon do you eat in the morning?

by 1370 · February 23, 2012 at 12:48 AM

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 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).

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.

My breakie: 3-4 thin slices with usually 3 eggs and sometimes some veggies or sauerkraut. I weigh 135 lb, 5'9".

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 :)

3-4 med thickness, more than that would be too rich for me (make me feel sick)... :~)

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!
