I usually do about 250-300, but I read somewhere that you should consume the most calories at breakfast and the least at dinner. (I think the analogy was something like 'eat like a king for breakfast and a pauper for dinner.) But I never feel like I've eaten enough and I'm starving by lunch. But most breakfast is that I love is protein and carbs. I'm still trying to figure out how to pig out and be satisfied for breakfast so I can be okay till lunch.
I'm usually around 250. I was starting out with just grapefruit and water and I found myself wanting to munch throughout the morning. Now that I've upped it to grapefruit or an orange AND a bowl of cereal with skim milk or oatmeal, I'm much more satisfied and rarely eat between breakfast and lunch.

Way too too many. My breakfast is after work, and mindless munching is finding its way back into my life. Will try again. Probably abt 450 total is usual answer when not munching. Always some protein and some fiber included in that, and likely veggies too.

Sounds like a good breakfast. Other ideas: sprouted wheat bread with almond butter, soft boiled egg with toast, or yogurt with fresh fruit. I eat oatmeal a lot, too.

I find that I feel the best when breakfast is my biggest meal of the day. I eat about 450 calories for breakfast.

I like my meals to be about 1/4 to 1/3 of my calories and my snacks during the day to equal whatever remains. Breakfast is usually about 300 calories, give or take...cold or hot cereal, an egg with toast, fruits, or a splurge on a bagel or something else I don't usually get.
I eat a lot of oatmeal with blueberries (or other fruit) during the winter - fast, filling, yummy and not very high in calories - a win as far as I can tell!
Good luck on your journey!
