Once feared for being high in cholesterol, new studies show whole eggs don't adversely affect blood cholesterol and don't cause heart attacks. They are among the best foods you can eat if you need to lose weight. They're high in protein, healthy fats, and can make you feel full with a very low amount of calories.
Eggs are also incredibly nutrient dense and can help you get all the nutrients you need on a calorie restricted diet. Almost all the nutrients are found in the yolks.
Egg whites should be part of every anti-cellulite diet. Eggs are loaded with protein and cellulite-busting minerals. They are an excellent source of dietary protein but very low in calories and fat.
The egg yolk, on the other hand, is rather high in calories, fat, and cholesterol. Nevertheless, it makes to include some egg yolk in your omelette as the yolks are a concentrated source of many important vitamins and minerals, including iron, iodine, zinc, and vitamins A, D, E and B12. In addition to providing protein and a slew of vitamins and minerals, eggs can help you lose weight. Research conducted at the Rochester Centre for Obesity in America found that eating eggs for breakfast could limit the calorie intake throughout the rest of the day by more than 400 calories. This is because eggs can make you feel full for longer.
Eggs contain two key nutrients that are vital to skin health: choline and lutein. The first builds up the fatty portions of cell membranes that are responsible for healthy, smooth skin. Choline also regulates the levels of the B vitamins in our bodies which are needed to produce the proteins that keep skin firm and smooth, collagen and elastin. Lutein, the second key nutrient in eggs, is an antioxidant that protects the elasticity of the skin and prevents skin damage.
