Much of my success at weight loss has been due to eating a lot of the same foods; especially when it comes to breakfast. Why? People make bad diet decisions when they’re hungry and tired and their choice-making capabilities are compromised.
It’s better to have ”go-to foods” when you’re still half-sleep with cold in your eyes. My go-to breakfast is always an omelet made with egg whites or egg beaters. When people eat eggs, rich in protein, at breakfast, they felt more satisfied and feel less tempted to consume sugar and junk food, compared to those who eat cereals, oatmeal or bagels for breakfast. Although some foods like oatmeal and cereal contain nutrients, that does not mean they’ll aid in weight loss.

For those that say “I don’t have time to make breakfast in the morning.”
- Make your breakfast omelet at night.
- Let it cool, put it in a microwaveable container and refrigerate overnight.
- Heat in the microwave in the morning.
- Eat the omelet while ironing your clothes and/or watching the morning news.
Here are these steps in the form of photos:
FYI: I don’t count calories or portions. So I don’t measure the amount of egg whites or egg beaters used. I just focus on making a medium-sized omelet. This method of eating has enabled me to lose 150lbs and keep it off for a decade.
Heat pan with Pam cooking spray.
Stick to using low-fat cheese for the inside. On the weekends, when I have more time, I get a bit more fancy making shrimp or crab omelets.
Nuke in the microwave and eat.
