Next time you're blearily reaching for the multigrain cereal, take a step back and grab two eggs from the fridge instead!
A recent study from the International Journal of Obesity shows that men and women who ate two eggs at breakfast lost a grand total of 65 percent more weight than those who ate a bagel breakfast of equal calories. Plus, the folks who ate eggs for breakfast felt more energetic throughout the day.
Don't let the old egg-white-only myth fool you; a whole egg is way more nutritious than when you're limiting it to just the egg whites. For example, by segmenting the whites from the yolks, you'd miss out on half the protein and tons of weight loss-boosting nutrients like B vitamins and omega-3 fatty acids. What's more is that whole eggs can actually help increase the good levels of HDL cholesterol.
Not only are eggs super easy and quick to make, they're also incredibly versatile. Check out these tasty egg breakfast recipes to help you reach your weight loss goals.
