I don't jog anymore because of some unrelated knee problems...but I used to in the mornings.
If your starving right when you get up, go ahead and eat a light snack. But save the whole breakfast thing till after you jog. Running with milk and lots of food in your stomach can make you feel really sick.
Anyway. just start light and work your way up to doing 20-30 minute jogs. There's nothing wrong with only lasting 5 minutes on your first run. At a healthy pace you should be able to have a conversation with someone as you're running. If you can't talk, slow down. Over time, your healthy pace will get faster.
Also, your body will do best with cycles of running and rest. The exact number of days may vary, but when my sisters were in cross country, their coach would increase their workout a little bit every day for 4 days. Then have a rest day, then go back to the slow increase over 4 days again.
