Eggs, meats, and cheeses, for starters. <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

How about waffles or oatmeal?

You'd have to check the carb counts on those, especially if you're only eating a set amount of carbs a day.

I have a lot of low carb breakfast ideas here -

http://www.bellaonline.com/subjects/4076.asp

in general eggs are perfect, so scrambled eggs, fried eggs, ham and broccoli omelets, poached eggs, sausage, cheese, steak, etc. So all of the traditional 'european breakfast' items.

Waffles and oatmeal are both grain products. Low carb is all about avoiding sugar and grain products in general, although high fiber, multi grains are OK in moderation. So things like oatmeal and waffles are in general things you would normally be avoiding, especially in the weight loss stages. These are things your body burns for 'easy energy' and therefore doesn't turn to your fat stores to burn. Your aim is to NOT give your body easy energy, because if you do, it won't bother to burn your fat <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

You might want to start here with the basics of low carb -

http://www.bellaonline.com/subjects/4204.asp

it will explain what low carb is all about, and what foods are considered healthy. Yes, if you're at your ideal weight, you could mix in whole wheat grains into your diet. But it's not something you should eat all the time and certainly not at the beginning when you are trying to lose weight <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" />

I wanted to add that my boyfriend really LOVES the low carb cereal which is very high in fiber but low on sugar. Which is a perfect combination for healthy eating <img src="/images/graemlins/smile.gif" alt="" /> He eats his with the low carb chocolate milk which gives the calcium but again has little to no sugar in it. He really enjoys it!

I personally love scrambled eggs or fried eggs. The new whole wheat breads they have have great fiber and nutrients in them with very little sugars, so I have a piece of toast, scrambled eggs, and a fried tomato or two. The perfect Irish breakfast!
