Calories in Omelet

Written by Diet Bites

 


How Many Calories in an Omelet?

The standard omelet contains 2 eggs & 1 ounce of cheese plus chopped vegetables.

Calories in Standard Omelet: About 325 calories

Our omelet calories are based on 2 medium size eggs, one ounce of mild cheddar cheese and 1/4 cup of the following sauteed vegetables: mushrooms, bell peppers & onion.

Please note that not all omelet calories are created equal. The types of vegetables used in the omelet as well as the variety of cheese will impact total calories.

Diet Omelet Recipe & Preparation Tips

Want to save a few calories and fat grams?

Simply substitute the egg white for the yolk of the egg using two egg whites for every yolk used.

The egg white is substantially lower in calories and fat grams - and contains zero cholesterol. One large egg contains about 50 calories, so as we can see the bulk of calories stems from the egg yolk.

If you want to save a few more calories then you can substitute an 'egg substitute' product which tends to be very low in calories - a one-fourth serving size of egg substitute contains about 25 calories.

Even if you add fat reduced cheese and veggies to your omelet is should contain less than 100 calories when prepared with cooking spray.

Eggs, Fast Food Selections

What about the nutritional values contained in fast foods which are prepared with eggs? They can be both high in fat and calories.
