Kourtney Kardashian’s Ex Younes Bendjima Swears by This Real Housewives Diet Tip

If you hear a promising diet tip, you might be intrigued — but tempted to shrug it off as a one-off. After all, one person’s idea is far from a proven pattern of success, right? But when you hear the same diet tip twice — and espoused very passionately both times — well, then you might be inclined to pay attention. And the latest potential dose of genius advice comes from perhaps an unexpected source: Kourtney Kardashian's 25-year-old ex-boyfriend Younes Bendjima.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Thursdays at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

The model shared his diet tips with Us Weekly, noting his breakfast strategy as follows: “I have a nice breakfast in the morning. I just eat whatever makes me happy because the first meal you have, by the morning, gives you a long time in the day to burn whatever you ate. So I really don’t pay attention to what I eat during the morning.”

Hm, now where have we heard that before?

Well, that would be from the mouth of The Real Housewives of Orange County pal Gina Kirschenheiter, who described a similar piece of advice as the best diet tip she'd ever heard.

"I worked in a medical school for years, and one of the doctors there — and this makes sense to me — he told me this, and I swear by this," Gina told The Feast. "He said you can eat whatever you want — just eat it for breakfast."

She explained the principle further: "He’s like, if you want a doughnut or a cupcake or a whole cake — he’s like just eat if for breakfast and then eat healthy the rest of the day, because by the time you go to sleep, you will have burned it off. Your natural metabolism, your movement, everything you’re doing during the day — you’ll burn it off."

So if you're keeping score at home, that's two votes for the eat-whatever-you-want-just-eat-it-for-breakfast method. What would Jillian Michels have to say about that?
