Sticking to a low-carb diet can be difficult, especially when it comes to breakfast. A lot of common breakfast foods are loaded with carbohydrates, including toast, cereal, and oatmeal. Here are 10 low-carb breakfast ideas to get your day off to a good start and keep your diet on track.


1. Eggs

Low-carb diets are a proven way to lose weight. One study found that, after two years, weight loss was maintained better for low-carb diets than low-fat ones. If you are on a low-carb diet, eggs are a great way to start the day. A single egg has less than one gram of carbohydrates, plus 13 grams of protein, Vitamin D, and iron. They're also extremely versatile — fry, scramble, bake, or hard boil them for quick, simple meals.
