It turns out that los­ing weight will be a lit­tle eas­i­er if you include eggs in your diet.

Eggs are among the health­i­est foods for humans. Men Today has pre­vi­ous­ly writ­ten about their nutri­tion­al val­ue: they are rich in high-qual­i­ty pro­tein, healthy fats, and essen­tial vit­a­mins and min­er­als. Besides all this, eggs have sev­er­al unique prop­er­ties that make them use­ful for weight loss. In this arti­cle, we will dis­cuss in more detail why they are great for weight loss.

Don’t self-med­icate! In our arti­cles, we col­lect the lat­est sci­en­tif­ic evi­dence and opin­ions from respect­ed health experts. But remem­ber: only a doc­tor can make a diag­no­sis and pre­scribe treat­ment.

Eggs are relatively low in calories

As you know, the most sci­en­tif­i­cal­ly proven way to pro­mote weight loss is to reduce your dai­ly calo­rie intake or increase the num­ber of calo­ries you burn. One large egg con­tains only about 74 calo­ries, but is very rich in nutri­ents. Egg yolks are espe­cial­ly nutri­tious.

Three large boiled eggs con­tain less than 230 calo­ries. Pair them with a gen­er­ous por­tion of fiber- and fat-rich veg­eta­bles (if you choose avo­ca­do) and you’ll have a 500-calo­rie meal.

Eggs are very filling

Eggs are incred­i­bly nutri­ent-dense and fill­ing, main­ly due to their high pro­tein con­tent. High pro­tein foods are known to reduce appetite and increase sati­ety com­pared to foods con­tain­ing less pro­tein. Research has repeat­ed­ly shown that egg dish­es, espe­cial­ly when com­bined with a source of fiber, pro­mote feel­ings of full­ness and reduce late-night eat­ing com­pared to oth­er meals of the same calo­rie con­tent. Eggs also have a high sati­ety index, which mea­sures how well a food helps you feel full and reduces your calo­rie intake through­out the day.

Eggs are rich in protein

Eggs con­tain a good bal­ance of all the essen­tial amino acids your body needs. This means that your body can eas­i­ly use the pro­tein con­tained in eggs to sup­port vital func­tions and metab­o­lism. A high-pro­tein diet has been shown to increase ener­gy expen­di­ture by 80 to 100 kilo­calo­ries per day through the ther­mic effect of food (TEF), the ener­gy the body needs to metab­o­lize food. The TEF for pro­tein is sig­nif­i­cant­ly high­er than for fat or car­bo­hy­drates. This means that high pro­tein foods like eggs can help you burn more calo­ries.

Eggs are a great start to the day

Eggs for break­fast are espe­cial­ly good for weight loss. Many stud­ies have com­pared the effects of eat­ing eggs in the morn­ing with oth­er break­fasts of the same calo­rie con­tent. Some ear­li­er stud­ies sug­gest that eat­ing eggs instead of bagels for break­fast may increase feel­ings of full­ness and reduce the num­ber of calo­ries con­sumed dur­ing late-night meals. Reg­u­lar­ly eat­ing an egg-based break­fast was also asso­ci­at­ed with increased weight loss over time.
