March 28, 2021 in in Food

A lot of eggs in your meal plan? There is definitely a reason for that! Eggs are loaded with vitamins, minerals, high quality proteins and good fats. They’re not only low in calories (50 to 80 kcal per egg depending on size) but they’re also excellent protein source: they contain all 9 essential amino acids.
Egg breakfasts are high in protein and low in carbohydrates and are considered the best breakfast choice for dieting for the following reasons:
They Improve Your Satiety
Studies showed that people who consumed a protein-rich breakfast such as eggs had increased satiety (fullness) and reduced ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates hunger. Therefore, having eggs for breakfast is a useful strategy to improve satiety (fullness) and thus reducing overeating throughout the 4s dubai day.
They Reduce Unhealthy Snacking at Night
Consuming a high protein breakfast such as eggs has been linked to a reduced brain activity responsible for controlling food cravings. Those who consumed a high protein breakfast were shown to snack less on high sugar/ fat foods during the evening time.
They Aid in Fat Loss
A study found that those who ate eggs (in combination with a low carb diet) lost more total body fat and had higher levels of adiponectin, a hormone responsible for regulating sugar levels and fatty acids breakdown (involved in fat burning).
And hey.. don’t worry eggs don’t raise your cholesterol levels. Because of their high cholesterol content, eggs were believed to raise our cholesterol levels and we’ve learnt to restrict eggs consumption, especially the egg yolk. Latest research found that whole egg intake does not increase blood cholesterol and is not associated with any heart disease. High cholesterol is caused many factors related to poor dietary habits like eating a lot of fried and processed food as well as increased sugar consumption!
