How many times have you heard things like this before
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day and it kick starts your metabolism.
You should eat low carb high fat and protein for breakfast because you'll store carbs as fat.
Firstly let's look at breakfast being the most important meal and kick starting your metabolism.
I've had so many people say to me "I don't eat breakfast and I really know I should and it's bad for me not to" this really isn't true there's a lot of studies been done on this and also intermittent fasting where as you wouldn't eat your first meal until maybe 10am-2pm and it has no effect on the metabolism at all, your metabolism is working regardless and is determined by your own body not a meal.
Breakfast is just that your breaking your fast so weather it's 6am or 6pm it's still your breakfast plus some people just can't eat when they wake me being one of them so why try and force it because you've heard you have to eat it in a morning.
Now onto what to eat.
Some will say keep the carbs low and eat higher fat and protein others will say eat your carbs in the morning because you have all day to burn them off, now for the average person wanting to improve their health and maybe lose a few pounds an adequate mix of carbs protein and fat will be sufficient.
You will NOT store the carbs as fat reason being your in a fasted state and you glycogen stores (what carbs convert to) are depleted so they will just be filled ready to be used as energy again.
To simplify things a little my advice is this
If your hungry when you wake eat if not then don't eat until later in the day, if you prefer to eat a meal higher in fat and protein then do so if your prefer to eat a meal higher in carbs then do that.
Then main thing to account for is your total daily calorie and macro (carbs/fat/protein) intake and what you feel your most likely to be able to stick with.
