Humpty Dumpty Is Full of Protein
Contrary to what many people have been told, eggs are not as bad as you think. It's true they contain both fat and calories, but the amount of nutrients they provide should cause you to reconsider omitting them from your diet. If you are trying to lose weight, you want to include foods that provide essential nutrients. Even though you need to limit your fats, do so by reducing the amount of oils and butter you use in cooking. Eggs contain natural fats that are easily used by the body for brain function and other vital processes.
One of eggs best attributes is its abundance of protein. One medium sized egg contains approximately 5 grams of protein. Protein is used by the body for a variety of things ranging from fuel to the creation of new muscle tissue. Protein is needed to build and repair all types of cells. Including eggs as a regular part of your weight loss diet helps you to feel full and takes longer to digest providing you with a sustained amount of energy for longer periods of time.
In addition to the hefty amounts of protein, eggs also contain several different vitamins and minerals including carotenoids, choline and Vitamins A, B12 and E. Frying and scrambling eggs can added unwanted fats to your diet. Instead, try poaching or hard-boiling them.
Eating eggs that are as fresh as possible helps to preserve the nutrients. In the past, eggs were thought to have a devastating impact on cholesterol levels in the body. When prepared correctly and eaten in moderation, they can actually improve a person's general health and help them to lose weight efficiently.
