As a newbie here. Its is so hard trying find right thing to eat for breakfast. Milk has ton of sugar and a lot of carbs in most cereals. And what is the deal with yogurt. I could not believe the sugar that is yogurt. I should have been eating ice cream sunday instead. lol Any ideas would be wonderful

Hi. It is hard to find breakfast items that are low in carbs. You can certainly have eggs and breakfast meats (if you don't mind all the fats and cholesterol). I like to eat the plain Greek yogurt. I found one that is not too bitter, Fage. I usually add about a tea spoon of agave and it gives it a nice honey flavor. Good luck and enjoy.

I have a low carb wrap with bacon and cheese almost every morning.

I eat anything I want for breakfast, including leftovers from dinner the night before. I need almost zero-carb in the morning, so whatever is zero-carb is fair game! And Fage yogurt is my new best friend . . . I use Fage Total 2% (it's the highest fat I can find around here) & mix in heavy cream a la Daytona: http://www.diabetesforum.com/diabete...html#post80876

I don't shrink from fats in my diet, knowing as I do, that there's no truth in the notion that dietary fat presents a risk of CVD. Our bodies make over 85% of the cholesterol in our blood, so how can it be bad for us, if our own bodies are making it?

There's a great thread here by the very same name that's helpful for inspiration.

I had the same question early on because my typical breakfast was a certain muesli I mail-ordered by the bushel, fresh fruit cut up in, and nonfat plain (or sometimes vanilla) yogurt.

My how times have changed.

Most days, I have an omelette made with two eggs, a large bacon rasher (I buy it from a local butcher, so it's sometimes just a big curved bit of pig) and a large handful of grated cheese. Other days, it'll be leftovers like Shanny.

Sometimes, when I'm too lazy to cook up eggs, I just have an avocado and some cheese.

I also like to keep a supply of hard-boiled eggs on hand for general munching.
