Eggs and weight Loss
I have heard a lot of comments from you all about eggs and weight loss, and how many eggs you should consume daily/if eggs are good for weight loss etc.
The egg is popularly and correctly known as the best source of protein in the whole planet!!
Nutrition experts in the past kept saying how the high cholesterol in eggs increase an individuals risk for heart disease, but it wasn’t proven. It. Was just a hypothesis.
Recent studies have even shown that high cholesterol levels are associated with high food intake and not high egg consumption.
In a study done in the year 2000 by some american researchers, they realised that egg consumers had a higher intake of essential vitamins like vitamins A, C, and B12 than non egg eaters. Ironically, they also found out that those who ate four or more eggs every week had a lower cholesterol level than those who ate few or no eggs weekly.
Eggs are a very good source or protein. A large egg has about 6g of protein even though it has only seventy five calories.
Choline which is in egg yolk is important for brain health!
Eggs are excellent for people trying to lose weight. Due to the amount of protein in them, they satisfy you when you eat them. It has even been postulated that eating eggs at breakfast keeps you satisfied during the day.
So the good question now is:
How many eggs should we eat?
The fact that eggs are good shouldn’t mean that we eat ten eggs daily.
Becky Hand, a licensed dietician suggested that an egg a day is recommended except in diabetic patients.
