High Protein/Fiber and Low-Carbohydrate Diet

Eat breakfast. A healthy breakfast for a 150 pound adult is about 300 – 400 calories

Ensure that your breakfast contains at least one item from three food groups: dairy, fruit, and grains.

If you are on a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet, you could have eggs and cheeses. 🧀🍳🥚
