I love eggs. They are one of the easiest foods to prepare, and they have flexibility, too. You can make eggs many different ways if you have fussy family members who each want a different style. Unfortunately, a few years ago I realized that I'm allergic to them, so whenever I see them on someone else's plate I feel left out. For years I justified it by remembering that eggs are really "bad" for us, right? At least according to the "experts" on such things.
But there's new research showing that the egg is not only not bad, they are actually good for us. Not only that, it turns out they are a fantastic weight loss food! An article from UPI.com has this to say:
Eating two eggs for breakfast helps overweight adults lose more weight and feel energetic than eating a bagel breakfast, U.S. researchers said. Lead researcher Nikhil V. Dhurandhar of the Pennington Biomedical Research Center of the Louisiana State University system compared study subjects who ate a bagel breakfast with men and women who consumed an equal breakfast of two eggs for breakfast as part of a reduced-calorie diet.
The study, published in the International Journal of Obesity, found that those eating the egg breakfast: -- Lost 65 percent more weight. -- Exhibited a 61 percent greater reduction in body mass index. -- Reported higher energy levels than their dieting counterparts who consumed a bagel breakfast.
This is good news, yes? Especially for those of us who are less than creative in the kitchen. Remember the video from Dr. Heidi talking about frying an Extreme Regime egg, and the one about how happy chickens produce eggs with more Vitamin D? Well now we can eat eggs with smiles on our faces rather than that look of shame.
