Better still, an egg doesn’t have so many calories, its 70 calories per egg. Due to its high protein content, you are less likely to feel hungry soon as it makes you feel full.

The egg white alone is just 17 calories, and 3.6g of protein.

For those who like a light breakfast, you can take an egg with your fruits, or with your oats, or with whatever you usually take. Better still instead of skipping breakfast,you can just pop in one egg in your mouth on your way to work. The Benefits of Eggs for weight loss are definitely worth it.
