Re: Breakfast Guidelines-

I'd say you're eating too much fat at one time for breakfast. Regular cream cheese does have less fat than butter. Regular cream cheese is 8 g. fat (Light cream cheese is 5 g.) + 2 hard boiled eggs is 10.6 g. fat, (1 egg is 5.3 g.) + 3 slices of turkey bacon is 2 g. fat = a grand total of 20.6 g. fat using regular cream cheese or 18.9 g. fat using light cream cheese. That's equivalent to 8 oz. of nice lean broiled sirloin steak. (Lean broiled sirloin is 18 g. fat) That's almost a whole days worth of fat for someone who is on a 1400-1500 cal. diet.

As far as the amount of food....It really depends on what your goal is and how many calories you are to be eating for your ideal weight. You don't want to go hungry either. You could make your breakfast a little smaller, but then you will probably need a mid-morning snack. It really depends on what you are eating the rest of the day.

Here's some of my ideas for breakfast redo choices......

Breakfast #1 - OJ, water, Bagel with fruit preserves, 2 eggs with peppers

Breakfast #2 - OJ, water, bagel with cream cheese, 3 slices turkey bacon, strawberries

Breakfast #3 - OJ, water, english muffin, canadian bacon, cantalope
