Poached egg vs omelette

I lost weight last year eating omelettes for dinner everyday. I'm sick of them. Could I have a piece of Dave's killer bread and a poached egg instead? Too many carbs at night? Please lmk.

    In general, a poached egg should have less calories than an omelette since no butter or oil is involved. Do you know the calories in Dave's killer bread. It sounds fine to me.

    Only calories matter so if its the same or less calories/ still under maintenance you will be fine.

    That's not a thing to worry about.

    Unless you're a diabetic having trouble controlling your fasting glucose.

    You've lost weight because you're burning more calories than you eat, not because of the omelette. Getting bored of a restrictive diet is one of the main reasons people give up. Why not have something that appeals to you, fits your calories and isn't eggs?

    Just having eggs for dinner? Day in, day out. Maybe change it up with something different.

    It's cutting a hole in a piece of bread and cracking an egg in the hole over a pan. Different road in the hole of what your thinking. It's very nice, especially if you like the yolk runny.

    The egg in the bread hole is called egg in a basket. Toad in the hole is most definitely sausage in yorkshire pudding.

    Next let's discuss caramel and carmel.

    Kidding.
