Help please

After reading in the press etc how low carb has great health benefits and helps with weight loss I would like to lower my carb intake, but I love bread and potatoes. I'm not a great salad eater but I have been trying to eat more especially lunchtimes where I am replacing a sandwich with a salad and I try to have fewer potatoes with my evening meal but I don't think I could cut them out completely. My main problem is breakfast, what can I have that's not too much fuss to make and is filling? The only yogurt I like is Alpro Simply plain, though having said that it is many years since I ate a full fat yogurt.
As I said I need some help please, I don't want to eliminate carbs completely as too many restrictions would just cause me to give up entirely and binge but I don't want to end up eating full fat foods and carbs thus putting on more weight.
Sorry for the waffle

Hi Linbo

Did you go low carb?

I low carb when I am focused but I don't not eat carbs and I have carb days. If I am low carbs I am high fat. I will always have carbs in things like bread, potatoes, rice and pasta but limited. I have higher carb days on exercise days and then the amount will depend on the intensity.

For example the other day I did a walk jog outdoors then a boxing class so I had rice. I have been low carb for 2 days, I didn't run today but hope to tomorrow and today I've had a jacket potato with a good wallop of salted butter because I can I did serve that up with half a pot of cottage cheese *protein*.

There are also soooo many things I now love but once upon a time I hated ...
spinach
avocado
yogurt
oats
bananas which are a good good carb btw
