Read How Eating Eggs In The Morning Can Help You Lose Weight
- They’re proven to work: A 2008 study found that obese subjects lost more weight and had a higher reduction in waist circumference when they ate a breakfast of two eggs instead of bagels (both paired with a calorie-reduced diet), even though each group’s breakfast contained the same amount of calories.
- They’re packed with protein: Your morning meal should be full of protein to keep you feeling satisfied until lunch. In fact, many experts say that you should get at least 20 grams of protein with your breakfast to stay full and boost metabolism. The good news? Eating two eggs puts you on the right track – one egg contains about six grams of protein.
