Eating eggs for breakfast maybe just the change you need to make a difference in healthier eating patterns. They are rich in high-quality protein, healthy fats and many essential vitamins and minerals. Eggs also have a few unique properties that make them egg-ceptionally weight loss friendly, give you lots of energy and great for body tone and shape.
1. Eating eggs in the morning versus eating any other breakfast with the same calorie content shows that eating eggs increases the feeling of fullness and causes you to consume fewer calories over the other meals that follow in the day.The egg breakfast causes significantly greater satiety, less hunger and a lower desire to eat more. 2. An egg breakfast causes a more stable blood glucose and insulin response, while also suppressing ghrelin (the hunger hormone). Eggs contain all the essential amino acids, and in the right ratios.This means your body can easily use the protein in eggs for maintenance and metabolism. Eating a high-protein diet has been shown to boost metabolism, through a process called the thermic effect of food. The thermic effect of food is the energy required by the body to metabolize foods, and is higher for protein than for fat or carbs. This means that high-protein foods, such as eggs, help you burn more calories. 3. Eating eggs for breakfast causes automatically to eat less calories at lunch and dinner, compared to eating other breakfasts. Eggs are incredibly nutrient-dense and filling, mainly because of their high protein content. High-protein foods reduce appetite and increase fullness, compared to foods that contain less protein. Eating a diet high in protein may reduce obsessive thoughts about food by up to 60%. It may also cut the desire for late-night snacking by half. 4. Eggs Are Cheap and Easy to Prepare. They are inexpensive, widely available and can be prepared within minutes. Eggs are delicious almost every way you make them, but are most often boiled, scrambled, made into an omelet or baked. A breakfast omelet as above made with a couple of eggs and some vegetables makes for an excellent and quick weight loss friendly breakfast. #meal1 #breakfast #eggs
