Eggs are delicious, easy to find, and can be cooked in so many ways. But can they help you lose body fat if you eat them for breakfast? Turns out, the answer is yes!
Eggs contain only trace amounts of carbohydrates, but have plenty of protein and healthy fat. Studies have shown that eggs rank high on the satiety scale, meaning that you don’t need to eat too much to feel full! If you feel full, you won’t overeat. And if you don’t overeat, you won’t go over your daily intake and gain weight!
For this reason, it’s no surprise to see some studies showing that eating eggs for breakfast may lead to weight loss. Eggs are filling, no matter how you cook it, are packed with nutrients to keep you healthy. Plus they’re cheap and easy to find. They’re also easy to cook so no need to slave over a stove for hours first thing in the morning!
Along with eating eggs for breakfast to prevent overeating later in the day, eggs are a good post-workout food. Like protein shakes, eggs are packed with protein and help the muscles repair themselves after the micro tears caused by intense workouts. After repairing the damage, protein aids in building up those muscles for added strength and mass. And as an added bonus, the extra protein also helps in lessening post-workout soreness!
And did we mention that eggs are delicious?
No matter what time of day you eat them, eggs will always be a welcome addition to anyone’s regular diet. Just remember that if you have pre-existing medical conditions and aren’t sure if eggs are good for you, please consult your physician!
