One of the hardest things I’ve had to give up is cereal. What few low carb cereals that are being sold in the market nowadays still have a considerable amount of carbs, which means that you can’t really term as ‘low’ in carbs.

If you’re lucky, you might also have some fruit or an omelet. So much fat and protein for breakfast can be uncomfortable for some people.
