You know the old saying that breakfast is the most important meal of the day. But it also may be the most important meal for weight loss – if you’re eating the right breakfast. And eggs may be one of best weight loss foods of all!
They’re high in protein, which helps build muscle, and they’re low in carbs, but still satisfying, so you won’t feel the need to snack in between meals, which means you’ll consume less calories.
And speaking of calories, they’re low in that too! Two eggs and a piece of toast will give you less calories than some energy bars.
Plus, you’ll get a lot of great vitamins in each egg – including D and B12, plus iron to help keep your energy up throughout the day.
They’ll also help out balancing your blood sugar and insulin levels, and they won’t negatively affect your cholesterol.
And the best part of all? You don’t even need to only have them at breakfast – a hard-boiled egg makes a great snack, and you can prepare a bunch at a time.
When it comes to losing weight, go grab an egg!
