    OOhhhh - have you tried the Starbucks low fat turkey bacon breakfast sandwich? it is insane! BUT 330 calories, maybe 1x per week on the weekends

      I eat the SAME THING every morning. It's a little over 200 calories (220) but worth the extra 20. Lean Pockets Multi-Grain Ham and cheese. If you have a microwave at work, pop it in for a minute 20 seconds and you're done. THis lasts me all morning without getting hungry until 12:30 or 1

        I try to keep it low too, this is what I eat from day to day:

        2 hard boiled eggs (180 calories)

        shredded wheat and 1 cup skim milk (186 calories)

        Quaker Steel Cut Oats (150 cals) my fav bfast because it keeps me full till lunch

        4 plain rice cakes - 140 cals, 4 tbsp sugar free raspberry jam - 60 cals


        the possibilities are endless......

          I eat exactly the same thing every morning.....
          1 dannon vanilla carb control yogurt (60 calories; 5g protein) with about 1 cup of berries (either frozen or fresh) usually strawberries and blueberries which I cut up and pre-bag on Sundays for the whole work week.

          On weekends I make a bigger breakfast sometimes:
          1/2 cup oat bran nuked with cinnamon, splenda, frozen blueberries and vanilla whey protein powder added. About 250 calories.

            The Luna Smore's bars are good too. Plus the are chocked full of vitamins and good stuff for women.
            I'll usually eat one of those around 9 with my coffee.

            Otherwise Special K bars are another fave but not that filling. Pair it with a banana or yogurt.

            Around 11am I'll drink a small can of V8 to tie me over until around 1pm when I have lunch.

            Breakfast at home is Egg Beater's (southwest) in a whole wheat tortilla with hot sauce or salsa.

              mmm i love special k bars!

              during the school year i switch off between plain cereal (special k, cheerios, fiber 1, etc.) and a grilled cheese sandwich....here's how i make the GC:
              2 slices lite bread (WW is 1pt for 2 slices, but so is wonderbread)
              1oz lite fresh cheese (most lites are swiss, which i don't like so i get american)
              make sandwich. put in toaster oven. turn toaster oven on. when browning, flip GC over. when both sides done, turn off toaster oven and enjoy.

              having fresh cheese makes all the difference; the prepackaged stuff tastes prepackaged, esp. when cooking it. however, the land o lakes 2 pt snack cheese is also good on it if you cut it into tiny pieces.

                I like the Danon Light n' fit Vanilla yogurt (60 cals) plus 1/4 cup Bear Naked low sugar ceral for 70cal. And if you wanted you could even add a piece of small fruit to bring it up to 200...

                      200 hundred calories is not enough for breakfast, unless you are eating another small meal within the next couple of hours. 200 calories is not enough to sustain you longer than that without your metabolism suffering. Breakfast is the most important meal of the day in that it kick starts your metabolism and gives you the energy you need to get going.
