  • I keep one serving of dry fiber one cereal on my desk in a cup, when my belly growls I take a bite, it keeps me satisfied all morning at work until luch time! 60- 80 cals. Or I cut off the crust of bread, grill it in a pan with non stick spray, fry an egg white, either add veggies half a slice of cheese or a thin slice of turkey or ham, it is great!

    Dannon Greek Light yogurts are 80 calories each.

    A hard boiled egg is 70 calories.

    A stalk of celery and 2 tbsp of hummus is 120.

    An apple is 80.

    A navel orange is about 80.

    A banana is 120.

    Nature's Own 100% Whole Wheat bread and a laughing Cow Light Swiss cheese wedge: 85

    1/2 cup low fat cottage cheese is 90 cals and very filling with a bit of berries or crackers if you are willing to eat a bit more calories.

    I can understand not wanting to eat a huge meal when you work off shifts. My issues working overnights was that I was hungry when I got home and would end up eating a pb&j (on toast, so delicious) and then pass out for 7 hours and wake up hungry all over again lol. I probably should have been more aware of what I was eating for my breakfast which was more of a pre-bed snack...

    Please try and think that people have different life schedules that could mean they don't get the 3 meals & 2 snacks ideal a day. I know that on weekdays, because I'm up at 4am I have my breakfast split into 2 meals. I then have two afternoon snacks instead to take me to the evening usually.

    Depending on your bread, a piece of toast with a light spread could work. Yoghurts are also great, and filling :)

    Breakfast should be your biggest meal of the day!
    I used to have a severe ED and even then I would eat practically all of my calories at breakfast.
    You burn them all off.

    You need those calories in the morning to jumpstart your metabolism, it helps you lose more to eat more in the AM.

    ETA: caught up. Egads. The number of posts with blatant misinformation on meal timing is staggering.

    Why would you bother with a breakfast of 100 calories or less?

    Are you on some fast or self torture?

    Eat!

    100 calories? :huh:

    I understand maybe 300 calories...that is about what I average per breakfast....mainly because I don't really like heavy breakfasts. But 100? Um....An egg. Or 2 cups of coffee with creamer. Um....A small banana?

    At that point I would just skip breakfast. I would be less hungry having a snack mid-morning and a bigger lunch vs teasing my body with 100 calories for breakfast.

    what i do, is 2-3 egg whites(32-48 cals), and 1 or 2 slices of turkey bacon(35-70 cals) For a total of 67-102 calories. Lately though, in addition to that, i've had half a grapefruit(60 cals.) Not bad, i'd say.(: Lots of protein. It keeps me full til lunch.

    It sounds like cooking may not be what you want to do at that point. I would go with hard boiling several eggs at another time and keeping them in the fridge. An ounce of cheese or some cottage would also be quick and easy. Piece of fruit, cup of yogurt, toast with low cal cream cheese or jam. Even a handful of nuts would take the edge off until you finish sleeping.

    I assume you eat a reasonable amount at other times of day. I don't blame you for eating a snack/meal if you are hungry. I personally eat 2 or 3 times before lunch. My breakfasts are generally between 100 and 300 cals each and I average about 400 cals by lunch time.

    Under 100 calories? That ain't no breakfast

    That's what I call a "Breakfast Junior" which means I've already had a 200-300 calorie breakfast about an hour earlier.

    Yes, but then you can have second breakfast and then elevenses...

    Haha, yes, the Hobbit Diet works for me! LOL
