Honestly, just eat whatever you can. Personally, I like high-protein or high-fiber (or both!), but sometimes when I wake up, I can't stomach those foods, and I opt for something simple, like a banana, toast, or hot cocoa made with milk.

Protein and fiber combos tend to make you feel full for longer, but I think that getting in the habit of not skipping any meal is more important... If you can eat the high-protein high-fiber foods in the morning just fine, then do- but if you can't, it's better to eat something and need to eat a morning snack than to not eat at all.

I know you want to sleep in as much as possible (I'm like this... but with a 9AM class...) so prepare something the night before. Hard-boil eggs! Add in a bit of baking soda to the water and make them easy to peel. Or, measure out dry cereal for the week into baggies. You can try breakfast drinks (I like the No Sugar Added Carnation Instant Breakfasts, they're 60 calories with a lot of iron and 5 g protein) too.

Anything with lots of protein will keep you full the longest.

Eggs - hard boiled, scrambled etc etc
Kashi cereal
Greek yogurt with fruit or honey or nuts

I currently have a job that requires me to leave my house at 6:30am. I'm a person that needs my sleep so I tend to sleep in as much as I can so I tend to get up anywhere from 5:30-6:00. What's the best kind of breakfast for me to have that will keep me full. I have been skipping breakfast because when I eat breakfast I tend to get hungry in a few hours if I don't eat breakfast I can go for a longer period of time before I get hungry. However this leads to binge eating later. So what kind of food should i be eating in the morning.
