10 Ways to Lose 10 Pounds
The "Eat Breakfast" WayConsume 300 calories at breakfast and your daily total will be about 100 fewer calories.
Why try it: People who eat a morning bowl of cereal are less likely to become overweight than those who pass up their a.m. meal, studies show. "Breakfast skippers tend to overeat at lunch because they're famished," explains Bowerman. "They're also more likely to snack on high-cal food all day, and justify it by saying, 'I didn't have breakfast.'"Action Plan
Try a rotation of these three healthy starts, which contain between 200 and 300 calories each.
- Power cereal: A bowl of high-protein cereal or oatmeal (6 to 7 grams of protein per serving and no more than 200 calories), such as Kashi GoLean Crunch!, with a half cup of fat-free milk
- Egg sandwich: A toasted whole wheat muffin with one scrambled egg and half a slice of melted American cheese
- Yogurt parfait: A container of fat-free yogurt with a half cup of berries and an ounce of almonds
