    when I eat breakfast ( for me usually around 9-10) its 200-300 calories. Some days I eat lunch at 11 and earl grey tea is my breakfast, which is less than 5 calories.

    Breakfast is my favorite meal because eggs are my favorite food. I generally rock about 400 calories for breakfast.

    No breakfast for me or I end up hungry all day.

    100-200 calories.

    My appetite works counterintuitively; a big breakfast makes me hungry. On the other hand, I'm often quite active in the mornings so my body needs fuel. This seems to be a compromise that works.

    Definitely my smallest meal of the day, I like to keep it under 200. Usually it's just a yogurt or granola bar or hard boiled eggs.

    About 300 cals with coffee, fruit, yoghurt and cereal, and then another 150-200 in an apple and something else after I work out.

    I don't typically eat breakfast. But I do always have a coffee with heavy cream that comes in at around 100 calories. If I do eat breakfast, it'll be a two egg omelet with meat and cheese and will come in around 350 calories.

    300-400 during the week. If I have a big breakfast on the weekend, I usually don't eat lunch.

    I do better all day if I get a solid breakfast with adequate protein. (And it seems to help control my evening cravings/snacking, bizarrely enough.) That said, I go a little lighter before workouts.

    My standard breakfast before on-water rowing is 490 calories. My standard breakfast before spin class is 410 calories (have found I need more carbs for rowing vs. spin). My standard breakfast on days without an AM workout is around 630 calories (can't standardize the pour of blackstrap molasses, so it varies a little ;) ).

    That's on a typical goal of 1850 net, usually 2000-2100-ish gross (I'm in maintenance).

    I crash and burn fast if I don't eat breakfast, especially before any kind of intense workout. Other people differ. ;)

    Right at 200 calories almost always.

    Anywhere from 85 (low cal Greek yogurt & black coffee) to 300 (oatmeal with generous spoonfuls of PB&J and shredded coconut). But usually 200 or a little under.

    i eat steel cut oats, some raspberries (and cinnamon), plus milk for coffee and a few cocoa nibs. regular quick oats don't keep me full long but hte steel cut oats i eat a big portion and "plain" and really have them soak more water than recommended.

    I love how specific this is. My dad is the same way. Same thing every morning, doesn't need anything else, never feels the need to change it up.

    I added the info on what that is ;)
    I am one of those who can eat the same thing daily for years. there are occasional changes (mango or strawberry VS raspberry, once in awhile overnight oats...). But i eat what i like, i like routine and miss it when i skip it ;)

    actually it also includes some almond milk for i use in tea in the afternoon.

    200 cals steel cut oats (i make 1 cup split it in three)
    32 cals 1/2 cups raspberries (and cinnamon)
    45 cals 1/2 cup non fat milk
    8 cals cocoa nibs
    30 cals almond milk

    Between 200 and 350 cals. It all depends what my husband makes for breakfast (he is in charge of that meal :)) . I drink my coffee black with a splenda, so all the calories are for food. I always have breakfast, unless I need to fast for a medical procedure. I don't function well in the morning without it.
