Eggs and Weight Loss

If You're Trying to Lose Weight, This Breakfast Tip Is Just What You Need

If you're reserving eggs for your brunch-filled weekends, you need to know a secret: they may just be the keys to weight-loss success. Here's why you should be eating more eggs to lose more pounds.

  1. They're proven to work: A 2008 study found that obese subjects lost more weight and had a higher reduction in waist circumference when they ate a breakfast of two eggs instead of bagels (both paired with a calorie-reduced diet), even though each group's breakfast contained the same amount of calories.
  2. They're packed with protein: Your morning meal should be full of protein to keep you feeling satisfied until lunch. In fact, many experts say that you should get at least 20 grams of protein with your breakfast to stay full and boost metabolism. The good news? Eating two eggs puts you on the right track — one egg contains about six grams of protein.
  3. They're a healthy (and convenient) choice: When you're starving and in need of something to sate your grumbling stomach, a hardboiled egg can be the quick, low-calorie snack that tides you over until your next meal. Pair one hardboiled egg (78 calories) with an apple (80 calories) for a substantial snack that will keep you satisfied without needing to resort to the vending machine.

Can't bear the thought of grabbing another hard-boiled egg before you head out the door? Many of these healthy, creative egg recipes can be made ahead of time so you can still stay on the right track no matter how rushed you are in the morning.
