Is this a good breakfast?

Mostly concerned with portions since I still ( think ) I am not losing weight since I put the scale away until next Friday...

3 eggs in a pat of butter or those same 3 eggs, cooked in bacon fat, where I have 4 slices of bacon. Sometimes I add some broccoli or spinach to the eggs... I also have coffee with 1.5 TBS of cream, and 1 pkg of Splenda. I have given up cheese, pretty much, as I am trying to figure out what is preventing me from losing weight.

1800 - 2300 calories a day... Under 30 gross carbs.

Well, basically veggies and meat, with a decent amount of fat... In the last week I have averaged about 61% daily calories from fat.... I have my goals set at 65, 30, 5, and I get close. I try not to have too many of my carbs at breakfast, but it seems I usually am at 8 - 11 for breakfast.

No, what actual foods do you eat?
Like this morning I am having three burgers for breakfast. Three or four more for lunch. Large steak for dinner.

Look at the little extras throughout your day. Keep the real food like spinach and beef, and cull the fake/slightly carby stuff down to just enough to be tasty and pleasing. And then you'll have to remember to add more good clean fat, from olive oil or coconut oil or butter.

Culprits could be a little too much cream, more low carb dressing than you think you're getting (try mixing a tbl of ranch and a tbl olive oil onto your salad). Almond milk, sweeteners, almond flour, cream cheese..... they're all okay for some LC plans, but those bits of carbs can really add up.

Emel, if it goes in my mouth, it is tracked. I have never exceeded 30 gross carbs except possibly one day when I had salad away from home and couldn't measure. Even then it was no more than 34 gross carbs for the day.

I will see if I can post a link to the thread where I posted an entire day's menu.

To answer your question, it sounds like a perfect breakfast to me.

I mentioned the little bits of this and that because it looked to me like you were cutting out real food to scale down. Mostly it was the part where sometimes you have 3 eggs in butter without the strips of bacon (or at least that's how I read it.) Not sure if 3 eggs, with possibly a bit of veggie in it, would be quite enough. I shoot for 4 oz minimum for a meal, so I'd do 2 eggs and 2 oz sausage. Or an egg with 3 oz burger patty. And then I'd add butter probably.

Didn't mean to question your adherance to the plan, just wanted to suggest that good honest foods with clean, healthful fats, all through the day including breakfast, might do the trick for you.
