In my honest opinion, you don't need to hold back on breakfast. My breakfast contains 500-600 calories, depending if I eat almonds or not..

-3 dl of milk (low fat)
-50-60 g of plain oatmeal
-1 scoop of whey protein
-1 apple
-handful of almonds (optional)

it will keep you up and running all day if it's necessary, but it takes some time to prepare (5-10 mins depending if you like it hot or not).

Or the other option, if you do not work out, I will always recommend Herbalife. People say it sucks and stuff, and I may be flamed for this post, but with Herbalife I lost 15 kilograms, and no one can tell me it doesn't work. But, if you train, you will lack energy and will be useless in the gym, basically :D

I am not sure how good it is but I like to have Egg Beaters either original or Egg Whites version with Laughing Cow Swiss cheese. It sort of feels like an omelet. I still get hungry but chase it with an apple mid morning.

Most mornings I drink an advocare meal replacement shake. But, that is not what you are looking forward. I occassionally go by Subway and get a whole wheat english muffin with egg whites, provolone cheese and bacon.

Eggs are very versatile, but my favorite is a simple three egg omelet:

3 Whole Eggs
5-6 sprigs cilantro
A dash of cayenne pepper

Cook the above omelet style and then top with homemade salsa

Fresh Salsa:
5 roma tomatoes (cut into quarters)
2 tsp kosher salt
1 medium yellow onion (cut into quarters)
1 tablespoon lime juice
30 sprigs cilantro (or half a bundle from a grocery store)
1 fresh jalapeño pepper
1 teaspoon garlic powder
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

All of the above pureed together in a food processor (personally use a Ninja).

The above won't run you more than 300 calories.

I'll also eat some veggie on the side like some baby carrots or a couple of stalks of celery and a fruit like a banana or orange. If you want to beef up the calories, add an ounce of shredded cheese and a slice of toast with peanut butter.

Breakfast Tostada, huevos rancheros style: Toasted corn tortilla (dry toast in 350 degree oven) topped with 1 egg scrambled (using cooking spray) with 1/4 cup black beans, 1-2 Tablespoons salsa and some S&P, and then topped with 1 tablespoon cheddar cheese. Full until lunch time.

It might not seem very portable, but it really can be if you don't mind taking a spoon and good tupperware to work. My formula is 1 cup 100% Whole Oats, 1/2-3/4 cup of milk (water if you like it that way), microwave for 2 minutes, add 1 spn peanut butter and a dash of cinnamon, mix it up really well, cool for a a bit, and it's good to go. Keeps me full for hours.

4 oz of greek yogurt
2 oz of blackberries
1 tbsp honey
10 drops of Stevia

Double that if I'm really hungry.

An egg, 3/4 cupp egg beaters with leeks and spinach (nuke it)
1/2 cup oatmeal with 1 tbs coconut oil and 1tbs cocoa powder and stevia extract (nuked as well)

I'm a microwave breakfast kinda person. :)

This is over 400 cals, but is SUPER filling. Coconut oil is an appetite suppressant and is pretty good for you in controlled amounts. You could leave out the whole egg and coconut oil if you wanted to save some cals.

A homemade protein bar. I make a tray of them every couple of weeks...oatmeal, whole wheat flour, protein powder, wheat germ, flaxseed, molasses etc. etc. They're a meal! Calories 349 Carbs 56 Fiber 6 Fat 6 Protein 20

Later in the morning I have a protein shake if I'm needing the calories

Hardboiled eggs. They are very easy to prepare beforehand and they last for a week.

This... easiest & packs a nutritious punch.

I do morning workouts in a fasted state. Breakfast is after and is usually a protein shake with almond milk + a hand full of raw nuts or cottage cheese and fruit.

A banana with or without PB.....
