It’s pretty much well known that breakfast is an important key to weight loss. But what if you could ramp up that metabolism boost even further every morning with a food you may already love?

Enter the egg.

Researchers found that who ate two eggs for breakfast every day for two months lost 65% more weight than participants in the same study who ate a bagel for breakfast, even though the bagel and the eggs contained an equal number of calories. The egg-eaters also lost 61% more body mass and felt more energetic than the study participants eating bagel breakfasts.

This study suggests that eating eggs for breakfast makes you feel fuller for longer so that you eat less at your next few meals. This is great news if you’re trying to lose weight as it means you may find it easier to cut calories without feeling hungry.

Why are eggs so successful in the weight loss war?

Eggs are a complete protein, meaning they contain all 8 essential amino acids. When our bodies are deprived of good quality protein, we cannot affect muscle growth, Lean muscle mass is an important key to a metabolism that hums along efficiently creating and maintaining a lean you. Muscle is metabolically active and that means that your muscles will be burning calories even at Rest.

Egg yolks also contain half of the eggs protein and the all-important weight loss secret: healthy fat. This healthy fat triggers the hormone Leptin (Greek word for ‘thin’), that is secreted by fat cells and signals your brain you have had enough to eat. This allows you to sail through the day morning without hunger or cravings.who doesn’t love that?

Unfortunately, the incredible, edible egg gets a bad rap due to old myths that eggs were a major player in high cholesterol levels. Numerous studies show that cholesterol from food sources has little effect on levels in your blood. It’s the saturated and trans fat in food that raises your cholesterol. Your body actually needs the cholesterol in meat and eggs to make the hormone testosterone, which helps to increase energy and helps to build more calorie-building muscle.

Bottom line: If you like eggs, use them to help stop cravings, hunger and boost your metabolism  and watch the pounds disappear.

To your health!
