Does it have to be whole wheat bread. I like oat bread much better.

I go much lighter for breakfast than this. I know it's ideal to have your big meal early, but that just doesn't work for me. I have more time in the evenings to enjoy a larger meal and that's when I'm most tempted to overeat anyway, so I save my calories for then. Breakfast is usually just 200-300 calories (a microwavepoached egg on a slice of wheat toast or high-fiber instant oatmeal with frozen fruit mixed in).
