An Egg a Day Could Help with Weight Loss

Breakfast may really be the most important meal of the day, at least  when it comes to weight loss. We’ve all started our day with some tasty  baked good or cereal, only to be ravenous by 11am and grabbing anything  in sight to satisfy you until lunch. All those calories don’t exactly  help the number on the scale go down.

But there’s one food that nutritionists recommend for breakfast to  help satisfy you: eggs. It’s all the protein - six grams, BTW - that  really fills you up and keeps you going until lunch. And they do it  without weighing you down.

According to a study in the International Journal of Obesity,  men and women who ate two eggs for breakfast (as part of a whole  reduced-calorie plan) lost an impressive 65% more weight than those who  ate a bagel breakfast with the same number of calories. And the egg  eaters reported having more energy, too!

But don’t think you need to skip the yolks and only eat the egg  whites to see the pounds drop, think again. Nutritionists actually  encourage us to eat the yolks because they can help with weight loss,  they help increase the good HDL cholesterol, and they’re a great source  of B12 and choline. So swap your bagel for a couple eggs and you’ll see  the difference on the scale.
