Low Calorie Breakfast

If its a low calorie breakfast you're looking for, then things are going to have to change. Obviously that hot buttered toast or bacon butty isn't going to be helpful - even if the bread is wholemeal

There are probably more calories in the butter than in the toast.

But is low fat enough?  Low fat products are probably high sugar - particularly in most popular breakfast cereals and in all breakfast biscuits

If you are in the UK probably the best cereal you caneat is shredded wheat as it has no added sugar or fat - just whole wheat.

So much of what is traditional breakfast food in the UK and many other countries is high in sugar or fat or both and that's not good, particularly, as many of us experience, the sugar/fat combination, especially if it is in the right proportion can be like a highly addictive drug and that's how many of us put on weight

So, yes, big changes are needed to go low calorie at breakfast time more than in any other meal when that means cutting out added fat and added sugar.  Even foods naturally high in fat such as nuts and oily fish are going to have to be kept to a minimum to keep those numbers down.

The trick is to try not to care what people think when you don't have milk in your porridge, nothing but tinned tomatoes or pure fruit puree on your toast, or a tasty chia pudding

And why not indulge once in a while with banana ice cream for breakfast?

yes really! because the only ingredient is bananas believe it or not. So sumptuous - but take care. it would be so easy to eat several bananas in this form without noticing and it's still very high sugar
