Other than going to a nutritionist, how do I figure out how many calories to eat if I want to lose 40 pounds?
What are healthy breakfast ideas?

Don't count calories. Eat high protein, high fat, very low carb. Eat real foods, not processed foods.
Best breakfast is eggs cooked in butter. Add some cheese if you want too.

I tried not counting, eating low carb, medium protein and veggies, some fruits but I didn't lose weight. Also my cholesterol is a little high. What else besides eggs?

Aim for 1400 calories a day

300 calories breakfast
400 calories lunch
500 calories dinner
100 calories morning snack
100 calories afternoon snack

2 fruit, 4 veggies a day


No eating after 8 pm
Drink at least 6 cups water a day

This is on the very low end of calories
Can transfer snack calories to meal calories or just increase calories altogether

Fruits are carbs. what do you mean by medium protein? how low carb? did you eat fats with your meals?

Can you give a sample menu of a day? I also get confused that fruits are carbs. Are you essentially eating fat protein and vegetables? No fruits, no grain no oats no starchy vegetables?

Yep! I eat 3 eggs cooked in butter most days. Others I have leftover salmon or tuna (with homemade mayo). I'll sometimes eat full fat cottage cheese or full fat plain yogurt with some blueberries or strawberries (they are low glycemic). Never anything lowfat or processed. If I still feel the need for more, I'll have some raw or dry roasted nuts-almonds, wanuts or pumpkin seeds are my go to.
I eat breakfast at around 9am, and am not hungry for lunch. If needed, I have a snack of cheese, nuts or avocado around 3pm. Dinner is meat, fish, or eggs. And some sort of veggie.

No grains at all. And I'm not hungry or craving them.

And I need to go shopping for new clothing because a lot of my clothing are starting to be way to big!
