The Drs: Healthy Food Swaps To Slim Down + Wedgie Jeans?


The Doctors: Small Diet Changes, Big Weight Loss Success

Jorge Cruise, author of “Tiny and Full” joined the show to share his tips for making changes to your breakfast that can help you slim down. Jorge explained that he has done a lot of research for his clients, including research about fruits and the sugar in them. He explained that the real mistake would be eating too many high-calorie or processed foods, not eating fruit. He suggested you start your day with a vegan breakfast like a 60-calorie muffin made with garbonzo beans, chia seeds, and applesauce rather than eggs and dairy. The applesauce is what gives the muffin sweetness without the sugar and calories. A good vegan breakfast will fill you up while helping you slim down.


For lunch, you can enjoy a pizza, but make it a little differently. Because vegans make pizza without cheese, Jorge wanted to find a way to still get his clients the b12 that is found in cheese, because it’s important for energy. So he included real cheese, bacon, and instead of pizza dough, used a wheat flour tortilla. A wheat tortilla cuts the calories so much that you can eat the entire thing!

Jorge also shared that you can still eat a lasagna, so instead of getting rid of cheese, he used turkey instead of beef and zucchini slices instead of pasta. Just a few little swaps can make a big difference overall! As for dessert, instead of indulging in ice cream, puree frozen bananas, a little cream, and some strawberries for a healthy sweet treat loaded with fiber and nutrition! You can have two scoops for 100 calories!
