Eat Eggs For Breakfast and Lose Weight
Eggs are Healthy.
Successful weight loss is as simple as making good decisions for your breakfast. Adding eggs to your diet may be one of the easiest things to do if you are trying to lose weight. Eggs are cheap, easy to make, and they are a great source of protein and many other nutrients. Eating whole eggs can have all sorts of benefits, including helping you lose weight. The biggest challenge to eggs is making them exciting every day, but all you have to find is a new recipe.
Eggs are high in protein and meals high in protein have been shown to induce satiety,. One study, in particular, showed that meals with 30-39 grams of protein including eggs not only reduced hunger and calorie intake but also resulted in better post-meal blood sugars. Multiple other studies have confirmed that eggs control hunger better and reduce calorie intakes for the rest of the day,,,,,. I have written more on the research on egg consumption.
The bottom line: Eggs are a great source of protein and it will keep you full longer.
