Eggs have long been vilified as unhealthy food and the cause of high cholesterol, heart disease, and strokes. The fact is that the tie between eggs and health conditions is very poor and more recent research refutes these claims. In fact, eggs are actually among the healthiest foods you can eat. They are a fantastic source of memory inducing choline, high-quality protein, healthy fats, and many essential vitamins and minerals.

Also, eggs also have a few unique properties that make them exceptional for weight loss. Most important, they are high in protein and low in calories. Not only are they naturally low-carbohydrate, but there is increasing evidence that eggs may contribute to body weight loss by increasing satiety. Egg protein is of particular interest as a potential food commodity for weight management because it is an inexpensive source of high-quality and bio-available protein.

The satiety effect of egg protein in humans and its possible regulatory mechanism has been investigated. At present, the role of egg protein in appetite control and body weight reduction remains controversial but, there is convincing evidence showing that high egg diets increase satiety compared to low egg diets.

The bottom line: Eggs promote satiety and assist with weight loss by reducing the calories you eat. I recommend that you eat eggs 2-4 times a week when you trying to lose or maintain weight loss.
