In brief: Healthy breakfast.

With the understanding that breakfast is an important meal in your day, start generally with leaner and more energizing choices.
Cereals rich with complex carbohydrates and fiber for sustained energy, with skim or 1% milk to keep it lighter. Low fat yogurt and fresh fruit. Egg whites and whole grain toast. Try to avoid fatty breakfast meats. Keep your proteins lean.

In brief: These is no

Best meal, for weight loss.
Remember weight loss is a effort spent over weeks to months and in some cases years. You need to first assess your overall eating habits and try to optimize portion control and caloric intake. And try to find a diet that has a foundation built on colorful veggies and to a lesser extent fruit, with healthy fats(like fish, nuts) and lean proteins.

In brief: Wrong Question

Weight loss will occur with a whole day plan that will include diet and exercise changes.
One meal alone is not going to lead to weight loss. The simple facts are these: to lose weight you should eat no more than 1800 calories per day. These calories should consist of 60% protein sources, 25% carbohydrate sources and 15% fats. Then a regular moderate level of exercise must be included daily.
