Eggs for Weight Loss
Why are eggs such a great choice for breakfast ? (http://goo.gl/dmBup4)
A few reasons:
>> Eggs score high on the Satiety Index Scale, which means they make you feel more full throughout the day.
>> Eggs are low in calories and fat. One large egg contains just 77 calories and five grams of fat.
>> They may be small, but each egg is packed full of six grams of protein, as well as all nine essential amino acids. They also rich in iron, phosphorous, selenium and vitamins A, C and B12.
>> In addition to being one of the healthiest foods around, eggs are also inexpensive and easy to prepare. (Veggie Omelet with Cheese http://goo.gl/NKLRgZ)
It’s been a long-running myth that eggs are bad for your cholesterol numbers, but the truth is there is little-to-no relationship between dietary cholesterol and higher blood cholesterol levels. So while an egg itself may be high in cholesterol, consuming one does not cause a spike in your levels. With that said, if your cholesterol numbers are already high, this doesn’t mean you can start piling on the three-egg omelets. According to Cleveland Clinic (http://my.clevelandclinic.org/), moderation is key. Talk to your doctor if you’re concerned about your cholesterol.
