    Can I cut with this kind of breakfast?

    I had been eating oatmeal and whey protein for breakfast before my workouts, but I found I got hungry half way through my workouts. Now I’m trying this:

    White potatoes
    Cooked with olive oil

    Three large eggs cooked with olive oil
    Shredded cheese on the eggs

    In three flour tortillas, rolled up to make three burritos.
    ************

    It seems like a lot of calories, but I’m hoping ut will fuel my weight training and cardio workouts while still allowing me to cut bodyfat.

    You can lose weight on any breakfast you like, even a day full of just snickers if you like (not good for health or muscle retention or advised), as long as you put your body in a deficit throughout the day/ weekly calorie amount.

    I have no idea how many calories that is but as long as its and any other food/ drinks/ supplements you consume are below your daily intake (maintenance TDEE) and you have incorporated your required macros (see nutrition stickies for advice) yes it will be fine. Only thing you will find is you will be very hungry later on in the day, as if you eat all your calories in the morning you can't consume anymore for the rest of the day or you will be in a surplus of calories.

    I take it you're not counting calories since you don't know how many is in your breakfast, but hard as hardyboysare said the only thing that matters is your overall daily/weekly calories. Watch your weight for a couple weeks, if you're not dropping then you know you need to scale back your intake.

    Yeah, count up those calories. That's going to be at least 800 calories and that is assuming conservative amounts of oil and cheese as well as 60 cal tortillas. That might be okay for you (I don't know how many calories you need in order to lose) or it may not.

    I usually make my "is this worth the calories" decisions in large part based on how much protein is included, in combination with my overall calorie limit, and to me this wouldn't be worth it.

    I have a scale, I can start keeping track tomorrow when I cook it. I have a composition book from when I was counting calories earlier this year.

    Determine your TDEE utilizing any of the dozens of TDEE calulators out there, then adjust calories for your goals. If cutting, I suggest -500 calories from your TDEE. Download myfitnesspal on your phone. Track calories and macros, making sure you are getting enough protein and fat to sustain muscle mass during your cut. That's all there is to it on the nutrition end of things.

    You can do little things to knock out some of those calories and fat. Air fry the potatoes, 1 while egg and egg whites, two tortillas instead of 3. It’s going to be hard to stay under your calorie goal for the day if your breakfast is that large. (Well for me it would be, I don’t know how you eat the rest of the day)

    Thank you everyone for helping me in this thread. I'm going to cut out the tortillas completely, and try to cut down on the calories.

    If you're not already, weigh your ingredients with a digital scale. It will make it easier to figure out ways to scale back on calories. You'll find that cutting back from 28 g to 14 g of cheese (usually 1 svg is listed as 28 g ) still gives you enough flavor. Relatively small changes like that can make a big difference.
