Low Calorie Breakfast Ideas

Although it’s a myth that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, you’ll need to break your fast at some point. And, when you do, it’s still vitally important to start your day of eating off with nutritious food that will keep you energised. If you’re aiming to lose weight, having a few low calorie breakfast ideas up your sleeve is a great way to avoid reaching for carb-heavy, sugary breakfasts which spike your blood sugars, can lead to weight gain and make you hungrier later on. 

Keep reading for a little inspiration of low calorie breakfast ideas that will not only keep you going all morning, but will keep you on track towards your health goals.

The Fast 800 Shakes

Low calorie breakfast ideas

When it comes to breakfast, prioritise protein, fibre and healthy fats to keep you energised and full until your next meal. These three basics will keep you covered for all three:

  1. Start your day sunny side up: Cook eggs any way you like for an energising and satiating start to your day. They’re high in protein at around 7-8g per large egg, but low in calories at just 76 calories. Protein is key for effective weight loss, and whether you’re a meat-eater, a vegetarian or following a keto diet, eggs are ideal for boosting your daily protein intake. Add in any leftover non-starchy vegetables you might have in the fridge to make a deliciously nutritious omelette or veggie scramble.
  2. Shake it up with low calorie shakes: Protein and meal replacement shakes are a top low calorie breakfast idea, designed to provide maximum nutrition in minimal calories. The Fast 800 Shakes are specifically designed to provide plenty of fibre and over a third of your daily protein all in 200 calories. They’re ultra convenient too, so no need for sugary cereal bars or rushed slices of toast: simply add water, shake and you’re good to go. Plus, the extensive variety of delicious flavours are sure to satisfy any morning sweet tooth!
  3. Top Greek yogurt with berries: At The Fast 800, we’re big fans of Greek yogurt. It’s rich in healthy fats and protein to keep you full and energised all morning. It’s also relatively low calorie, at 105 cals per 100g serving. Berries are some of the lowest-calorie fruits around, as well as being an excellent source of vitamins and antioxidants, so opt for berries at a yogurt topper instead of higher calorie fruits like bananas. Breakfasts like this can easily be prepped in advance to make them a convenient midweek, low calorie breakfast idea

Breakfast foods to avoid

Breakfast is often one of the most rushed meals of the day: frequently we just need to grab convenient options that don’t require cooking or preparation when heading out the door for the day. However, many easy breakfast options (like cereal or toast) are high in calories, sugar and carbs, all of which can lead to weight gain, blood sugar spikes and feelings of hunger earlier in the day. 

To avoid this, steer clear of packaged cereals, breakfast bars, pastries or muffins. If time isn’t on your side, it may be worth looking into our shakes as one of your convenient, low calorie breakfast ideas. It takes less than a minute to add water and shake, and will keep you full and energised all morning. A win-win!
