To decrease your caloric intake, eat only half a bagel and use less peanut butter. Since half of a 4-ounce whole-wheat bagel contains 138 calories, eat only that half and put one tablespoon of peanut butter on it for a total of 233 calories. For fewer calories, spread ½ of a tablespoon of peanut butter on your bagel.
