Weight loss can involve a restricted diet, but simply swapping a bagel for eggs in the morning will keep you fuller for longer.
Eggs have long been associated with raised cholesterol but the latest studies have revealed that eating eggs has no association with heart disease.
In fact, eating whole eggs raises the body’s levels of HDL (good) cholesterol.
Swapping from a sugary, high-carb bagel in the morning to a whole egg could see your waistline trim down without much effort.
A study of 30 overweight women showed swapping bagels for eggs at breakfast made them eat less for the next 36 hours.
They are incredibly packed full of nutrients: one large egg equates to 77 calories, 5 grams of fat and 6 grams of protein.
And it will provide you with all 9 essential amino acids.
Kris Gunnars, BSc, wrote in an article on Healthline.com: “If you need any more reasons to eat eggs, they are cheap, go with almost any food and taste awesome.
“If there was any food I’d be willing to classify as a superfood, it would be eggs.”
The news comes after it as revealed giving up sugary drinks could also lead to weight loss.
The Boston Public Health Commission found that drinking large amounts of sugary drinks increases the risk of weight gain, developing Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and gout.
Children are 60 per cent more likely to be obese with every sugary drink they consume per day. This means three glasses of squash makes your child 180 times more likely to be overweight.
They said: “Drinking just one 20-ounce bottle of a sugary beverage per day can result in gaining 25 extra pounds per year.”
Thirty studies from previous years have all shown that drinking sugary drinks is linked to being overweight and obese.
Drinks that are sweetened with extra sugar have been shown to be linked to obesity in adults and children.
A whopping 93 per cent of research projects showed the positive correlation.
