Eggs on the Go
For those with busy lifestyles, it's tempting to skip breakfast in an effort to beat the morning drive traffic and get an early start to your work day - especially if you're trying to lose weight. One less meal equals fewer calories, right? Not so fast. Study after study shows that a healthy breakfast can jumpstart your metabolism, lend some pep to your step and ultimately help you shed those extra pounds.
Among the best breakfast options for weight loss-minded people is an egg. Whole eggs pack more essential vitamins and minerals per-calorie than virtually any other food, and they're a top source of choline, a substance your body requires to break down fat for energy. Plus, they help to keep you feeling full. One study showed that of two groups of people who had the same calorie-count in eggs or bagels for breakfast, the egg eaters consistently consumed an average 264 fewer calories throughout the day.
Perhaps the best thing about eggs -They're quick and easy to prepare in the microwave. Check out this recent BuzzFeed feature on 12 easy ways to cook eggs in the microwave. And if you've got a little extra time on your hands, the Metabolic Research Center website also features a variety of healthy, weight loss-friendly breakfasts like delicious egg and bacon flatout.
