Eating eggs is good for you!

You might think when I say eating eggs is good for you  I might be referring to the chocolate Easter Eggs that are just everywhere you look this week.

Well sorry I am not.

I am referring to Chicken’s Eggs and how they are really good to incorporate into your normal eating.  Many people think eggs have a bad name because of a link to cholesterol however eaten sensibly they can be a great part of you eating plan when you are trying to lose weight.

Eggs in fact tend to raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol and they tend to change the LDL (the “bad”) cholesterol to a large subtype which is not associated with an increased risk of heart disease.

They are also great to have at breakfast as they will stave off hunger.

In one study, 30 overweight or obese women consumed either a breakfast of eggs or a breakfast of bagels. Both breakfasts had the same amount of calories. The women in the egg group felt more full and ate less calories for the rest of the day and for the next 36 hours
In another study that went on for 8 weeks, eating eggs for breakfast lead to significant weight improvements compared to the same amount of calories from bagels. The egg group
  • Lost 65% more body weight.
  • Lost 16% more body fat.
  • Had a 61% greater reduction in BMI.
  • Had a 34% greater reduction in waist circumference

So why not try having eggs for breakfast at least twice a week for breakfast and here is a tasty recipe below to help you get on your way
