"Breakfast" is just a social convention. It's traditional and popular in the U.S. to eat all kinds of grains (donuts, bagels, cereal, pancakes, etc.) and sweet stuff (juice, yogurt, etc.). But there's no rule that says that's what you have to eat in the morning. In many countries, the first meal of the day is a hot savory bowl of soup or porridge. An "American" breakfast of OJ, cereal, and toast would be looked at oddly.

Eat whatever you would eat at lunch or dinner (meeting your nutritional goals, of course). If you're not a "breakfast person" you might want to look into low-carb smoothies/shakes or "bulletproof coffee" (or tea or low-carb chai). All of these will get some fat and protein into you earlier than you otherwise might consider. Recipes for all of them can be found in our Recipes forum here.

I stopped eating breakfast about 30 years ago as I was never hungry in the morning and eating at that time just made me feel sick. It also didn't do my BG levels any good.
I don't miss it - every now and then I'll have breakfast but it's really more of a brunch. It's also interesting to point out the social norm of eating breakfast seems to be diminishing. I don't know of too many people that still eat that traditional big breakfast first thing in the morning.

I eat breakfast every day, it is almost 'fast food'! AT the grocery store you can find small containers of Low Fat Greek Yogurt. They have multiple flavors with some added fruit. This yogurt is not like what I call American SOUR yogurt. It is creamy and smooth like pudding, and not sour. If you check the containers you will see that many have 10g to 12g of carbs per container, which is too many carbs for me to eat for breakfast. So I take half of a container, saving the other half for the next day. I add two tablespoons full of Heavy Whipping Cream to that 1/2 container and mix well (Thus fixing the low fat problem)! Bingo, you have a wonderful, fast food, low carb, high fat, breakfast. I eat this with two cups of coffee also loaded with Heavy Whipping Cream. Yum, the last A1c was 6.2 and my weight has dropped 70lbs over the last three years, because I am eating lots of low carb high fat foods.....and my cholesterol has actually went down well below my doctors target for diabetics....

Try it you will like it....
