  • I eat oatmeal too. Not the instant kind, but I buy oats and make some in the microwave.

    I want to add- I was not always a breakfast eater, and kind of made it a habit. You can do it!

  • Youghurt w/ fruits and berries cut up in it. I also like it w/ honey nut cheerioes... they have a bit more cal.'s...but are vey filling.
    And don't forget a full glass of water ( I normaly gulp mine down before I have my coffee ;-} )

  • I take a big sip of water only bc sometimes I am not hungry yet or not sure what I want for breakfast. Sometimes I want coffee onlybut trying to cut back on that. So I guess it depends on how I feel.

  • I make my own egg mcmuffins. You can buy 100 calories, high fiber English muffins. Fry an egg with spray butter, use the spray butter on a toasted muffin and throw on a piece of American cheese. It's about 280 calories. You're getting fiber, carbs and healthy protein. =)
    Oatmeal is great too. Just add water, nuke for 1.5 minutes, add a splash of milk and just a bit of sugar.
    Cereal is good too, but it just depends on the brand. Look for ones that have lots of fiber and not too much sugar.
    Toast with whole wheat high fiber bread is great also. Have it with some butter or peanut butter or no sugar added jam.
    There are lots of options. You just need to learn how to read labels. As you can see, the above meals have fiber and protein. Those help keep you full. =)

  • I see that someone mentioned yogurt. Plain yogurt is best, just add some fruit. Sweetened yogurt has a ton of sugar. The lower cal yogurt has fake sugar in it (which doesn't taste all that great and the fake sugar can screw with your feedback system, making you crave sugar after you eat it).

  • Try to mix 2 different types of things in terms of protein/carbs/etc. I'll usually do yogurt and granola or an egg and a banana.
