Who among us has not tried to lose weight at some point in their life? There is the high protein diet, the low fat diet, the cabbage diet, the beet diet…the list goes on. It often seems that unless you are on the high protein diet, eggs are out of the picture. However, research suggests that eating eggs can actually contribute significantly to weight loss efforts. According to a study from the Rochester Centre for Obesity in America, eating eggs for breakfast could help to limit your calorie intake throughout the rest of the day, by more than 400 calories!

If that’s not enough to get you crackin,’ look closely at what a single egg contributes to daily nutrition:

Nutrient Name %DV Nutrient Name %DV
Calories 4% Proteins 13%
Fat 8% Cholesterol 70%
Vitamin A 5% Vitamin D 4%
Vitamin E 2% Thiamin 2%

Pantothenic Acid 7% Manganese 1%
Calcium 3% Iron 5%
Magnesium 2% Phosphorus 10%
Potassium 2% Sodium 3%

Selenium 23% Fiber 0%

 

So trade in your bagel for a couple of eggs!
