Eggs are considered to be the best breakfast choice for everyone. The reason for this is that eggs are packed with protein, contain enough calories to keep you full, and don’t have carbohydrates. Eggs contain all 9 essential acids that are in charge of building and maintaining your body, and therefore they are called a complete protein. All the famous dietitians and nutritionists (Jillian Michaels, Dr. Dukan, Dr. Atkins, etc.) suggest eating eggs if you want to lose weight.
A study conducted in the Rochester Centre for Obesity in America showed that eating eggs for breakfast can help you eat around 400 calories less throughout the day. This happens because eggs make you feel full longer than some other type of food, due to its nutritional values, so you eat fewer calories without feeling hungry and frustrated.
In the past, nutritionists advised us to limit our egg intake to a few per week, but this attitude has been recently abandoned, and many agree that there is no limit to which you can eat egg during the day. However, if you eat too many egg yolks and you have a sensitive stomach, you might experience some heaviness and digestion problems. Also, egg yolks make up most of the calories of the egg and contain some cholesterol and fat. Therefore, we recommend eating up to 2-3 whole eggs in one day, but for egg whites there really is no limit, because they contain a lot of protein and no fat or cholesterol.
Eating eggs can quickly become boring. Therefore, there are some suggestions on how to keep it fresh. You can make an egg and ham/chicken breasts/ (low fat) cheese omelet, you can boil eggs, or bake them regularly. When preparing them, use your imagination, but try not to add oil or additional fat.
