Eat an Omlette Every Day

A 2008 study from the International Journal of Obesity found that subjects who ate eggs lost 65 percent more weight than those who ate the same amount of calories in the form of a bagel for breakfast. 

Whip up an omelet for a protein-rich, energy filled way to break your fast every morning. Boost your burn by adding a sprinkling of low-fat shredded cheese (dairy speeds up weight loss) and veggies like spinach and tomatoes (their fiber and density will help you feel fuller longer).

Try it today: No time? Make this three-minute microwave omelet: Mix eggs with your favorite add-ins in a microwave safe dish. Cook for one minute, then stir. Cook for more two minutes. (Time will vary by microwave.)
