    Just your honest opinions please, I'm not attention seeking but was made to feel quite fat by family for eating a cooked breakfast which I didn't think was a particularly huge portion..

    - 2 eggs
    - 2 bacon
    - 1/4 tin of beans
    - 1 piece of fried bread
    - 1 sausage ...

    ...?

    Just a yea or no, I need to know if i'm thinking of portions that are bigger are smaller than what they are. Thanks

    I usually have double the bread, 2-3 sausage and up the beans to half a can, plus I have mushrooms and a grilled tomato

    No, it's a normal portion for an English breakfast. Obviously if you ate this every day it would be a bit excessive, but as a once-a-week type thing it's fine

    That's a standard English Breakfast. Could do with the addition of hash browns if anything.

    that is hardly anything. However, if you're already overweight that may be what they are getting at.

    Do you normally not have breakfast then?? If not, that's probably why they commented - not because it was a big portion in general, but because it's a bit more than they'd usually see you having.

    If the comments are getting to you, just say something like 'hey, it's a normal amount for a cooked breakfast, and besides, I felt like treating myself a bit for once'. Please don't let their reaction put you off having breakfast - I know from experience that starting to skip meals is certainly not a good thing to do...and after all, YOU know what's the right amount for YOU. And, I see you've stated your weight and height there too - a perfectly healthy weight, with a BMI of 19.5, so it's not like you shouldn't be having a cooked breakfast every so often (ie you're certainly not overweight or unhealthy)

    Hope that helps

    It's fine, that's quite a small breakfast really.

    My parents do exactly the same thing! Even though I'm a bloody size 10! really pisses me off :rolleyes:
