One Breakfast Here Will Make You Lose Weight. The Other Will Make You Fat. Which One Is For You?

140 Breakfast

This is one of the breakfasts I had regularly while I lost 140 pounds. Coincidently, its 140 calories. It tasted great, made up of my favorite foods, kept me going all morning, and at 1/10th of the breakfast pictured below, had me shedding pounds like crazy. Now, to maintain my loss, I eat way more than the 140, but still only a fraction of the American norm that is making people obese and sick.

This is Denny’s Meat Lovers’ Omelette at a whopping 1730 calories. That’s the kind of thing I used to pick that made me over 300 pounds. Think about that. 140 calories versus 1730. No wonder we have an obesity epidemic.

To lose weight, you need to learn how to eat what you like, not go on a diet.

For years I have resisted giving my clients food plans or telling them what to eat. That will not help them. Instead, I teach them how to succeed. I know how to help people be successful at weight loss, and its almost always contrary to what they think should be done. They think they need to follow some diet and exercise plan that some personal trainer or dietician will prescribe. Nope. They need to train in my method of behavioral science. I can guarantee that my client will lose weight if they follow me.

Clients who have trained in my method and people who have read my book know that the secret to success is learning how to eat what you like and learning the behavioral techniques that change the way you think and act habitually. Success does not come from diets and exercise plans that you know will come to an end when you want to live normally again.

Please read everything you find on my website here. Read the articles listed on the Table of contents at the bottom of the page. Read the articles I’ve written for The Huffington Post. You’ll learn a great deal about all manner of weight loss facts and dispel a lot of myths. When you are ready to solve your weight problem, call one of my therapists and do what they tell you to do. Or read my book and follow what that says to do.

The 140 Calorie Breakfast. Here’s The Recipe. Real Easy.

After posting the blog about the 140 calorie breakfast versus the 1730 calorie breakfast, I got lots of messages asking me what it was and how to make it. So, here it is.

It’s a vegetable omelette made with onion, red and green peppers, mushrooms, 2 portions of Egg Beaters and a slice of low calorie toast.

Use a small sauce pan to cook the veggies, starting with a little Pam. Cook at a low to medium heat, covered, and add a little water if needed to prevent burning. You are actually steaming them, mainly in their own juices.

When they are tender to your taste, pour in the Egg Beaters (1/2 cup), cover again, and put your slice of bread in the toaster.

When the toast pops up, your omelette should be just about done. You want it to be solid, not liquidy, on top. Fold the omelette over and put it on the plate.

Since I’m a big fan of You Can’t Believe Its Not Butter spray, people have asked if I use that on toast. Nope. It’s doesn’t work. I use Brummel and Brown spread, like low cal margarine, but better. (Thanks Trish).

Enjoy! And if you haven’t read my book yet, don’t forget to order a copy. It’s on Amazon, both paperback and Kindle, and now an audiobook too.
