Type 2 here!
I see a Registered Dietitian on my own and i am also a Nutrition and wellness specialist student!
I find that a 400-500kcal breakfast (400 for women, 500 for men) is perfect! Someone below mentioned 30g of protein and thats great as much protein as you can include is perfect and about 45g of carbs is perfect! Dont forget a fiber source so u can stay full and regular! and yes eat as closely to your wake up time as possible (after checking your morning Blood glucose of course).As a man diabetic i need 500kcals for breakfast with 45g carbs at least 5g fiber and at least 15-18g protein minimum!
Today i had:
1 Quaker "Protein" Oatmeal with 1/2 Cup Skim Milk
150kcal, 10.5g Protein, 6g Fiber, 26.5 net carbs

1 Iced Skinny Vanilla Latte with
