Bacon may not be good for you at all, but eggs are fantastic for you in moderation.
Fruit, on the other hand, is possibly the most overrated thing on Earth. Fruit is nothing but sugar with very limited vitamins and minerals.
Fruits mostly break down into fat within the body.
There is also no protein in fruit, so eating fruit for breakfast does nothing to satisfy you or stimulate brain function.
Fruits aren't very good for you at all.
If you're going to be so obsessed with eating "grown" foods, eat vegetables. They're much better for you than grown sugar.

Conclusions Children who drank the most milk gained more weight, but the added calories appeared responsible. Contrary to our hypotheses, dietary calcium and skim and 1% milk were associated with weight gain, but dairy fat was not. Drinking large amounts of milk may provide excess energy to some children.
It's important for people to realize that dietary fat does translate to fatty tissue, or heart disease for that matter. High Fat does not necessarily equal Fat People. You can bank on that.

Tried it mate, it was crap!
Tried being a veggie in my mis-spent youth.
I like meat.
Especially in a F.E.B.
I do like fruit sometimes.
But not all the time and not for breakfast, usually during the afternoon or at night before I go to bed, (unless i've just got in from the pub when it just has to be MEAT!)
Now, if I have 'the munchies' tis the only time i'll eat chocolate.
Anyway, speaking of the pub, that's where i'm off to now.
Damn, it's a hard life sometimes!
Edit to add:
I also predict a bad case of the trots for anyone who does take up the challenge!
Bit like myself tomorrow morning after 10 hours on John Smiths followed by a mad hot Ruby!

The authors of this paper randomized 152 overweight subjects into four different study groups. The groups were to follow one of four plans. Subjects in one group (the egg group E) were instructed to eat an egg breakfast daily but to continue their regular, non-weight-loss diet otherwise. Subjects in the bagel group (B) were instructed to eat a bagel breakfast and make no other changes in their diet. The members of the third group (the egg diet ED group) were to eat an egg breakfast and follow a 1000 kcal reduced diet. Subjects in the last group (the BD group) got instruction on eating the bagel breakfast while reducing kcal by 1000. So, two groups ate bagels or eggs for breakfast and didn’t diet while two groups ate bagels or eggs and reduced their overall caloric intake by 1000 kcal from their diet before starting the study.
But what about all the cholesterol? Well, as it turns out, the addition of two eggs per day didn’t raise cholesterol a bit. There were no significant changes in total cholesterol, LDL-cholesterol, HDL-cholesterol or triglycerides between the ED and the BD groups. If you look at the trend (a dangerous thing to do because it isn’t relevent), you can see that all the small changes in lipids were in a direction one would expect on a lower-carb diet: a little lower cholestero, lower LDL, higher HDL, and lower triglycerides. But nothing of statistical significance. If there were more people on the study or it was longer, these differences may have reached statistical significance, but they hadn’t when this study ended. What the data do show, however, is that adding a couple of eggs per day doesn’t do squat to your cholesterol level.
