What should breakfast be?

I lost weight with a breakfast of 2 eggs, some kind of greens or flax in those eggs, perhaps bacon, but more often potatoes, fried in animal fat. Occasionally a can of salmon or tuna, or burger paddy.

Jack Krause (leptin reset) recommends 50 to 75 grams of protein. That is too much, because I am hungry after too soon. I do agree protein, but the fat fried potatoes, still hard, kill hunger for a long time, and do not raise my BG very much. Oh, well, one more Doctors recommendation tested and proven unsatisfactory for me. Sharma recommends frequent meals, but that does not let leptin reset, if it is a leptin problem. Back to potatoes and eggs with vegetables.

Anything that raises BG is out, so is fruit. Fruit tastes just fine, but does not have the hunger holding off power needed. Such is life. Buddha said something like if we find something that works, stick to it. I think I will.

The leptin diet rules
1. Never eat after dinner. Finish eating dinner at least three hours before bed.  
2. Eat three meals a day. Allow 5-6 hours between meals. Do not snack!  
3. Do not eat large meals. Finish a meal when you are slightly less than full.  
4. Eat a high protein breakfast.  
5. Reduce the amount of carbs eaten.  

It appears that leptin satiation is more the absence of hunger than the insulin satiation, enough feeling. It is the absence of hunger that I need to have, not the insulin satiation. One more to live up to.
