A diet high in protein can help you lose weight.
It’s no surprise that eggs are a healthful source of protein, but high protein diets can actually encourage weight loss, experts say. “One large egg has about six grams of high-quality protein, making them a good choice as part of an eating pattern that supports a healthy weight,” Knott says. Studies have also shown that protein (in moderation, of course) can keep the metabolism moving along quickly, energy levels high, and keep you fuller for longer: all factors in weight control.
Consuming fats isn’t what makes you gain pounds.
Eggs, even the full yolk, are lower in fat than you might think. “One large egg has about five grams of fat, which is less than 10 percent of the total fat needs per day for someone consuming 2,000 calories per day,” says Knott. Plus, research published in the journal Diabetes and Endocrinology has proven that consuming fats is not the enemy. In fact, adhering to a high-fat Mediterranean diet can help you maintain a lower body weight.
