Are Eggs Healthy?
Breakfast is one of the most important meals of the day. The worst thing you can do is to start it off with some toast, a bagel and glass of orange juice. Your sugar and insulin levels will blast through the roof and you will be more hungry in a few hours. Your body will be instructed to store more fat and block any effort, including exercise, to lose fat.
Start your morning with eggs. They are all-natural and contain high-quality protein to keep you fuller longer and energized all day long. Plus, they are packed full of Vitamin D, and the yolk ingredient lutein which protects your eyesight by reducing macular degeneration. New credible research has proven that eggs will not raise your cholesterol level either. So eating delicious eggs for breakfast is one of the smartest choices you can make in a day.
Can your breakfast really help you maintain a healthy weight?
Absolutely, eggs are one of nature’s original forms of portion control. Dr. Leidy and associates at the University of Kansas Medical Center clearly showed that the high-quality protein in eggs can keep you fuller longer, reduce your hunger and decrease your calorie consumption throughout the day.
And eggs can even help you lose weight. Dr. Vander Wal, a psychologist at St Louis University, demonstrated that eating eggs for breakfast can help overweight dieters lose more weight, lower their body mass index and shrink their waist more than eating a bagel breakfast of equal calories. Egg protein is one of the most powerful foods that stimulate serotonin production causing you naturally not to be hungry.
Can I get a brain a boost from my breakfast?
Eggs are nature’s perfect high-quality protein for incredible mental energy. Research shows that eating high-quality protein foods for breakfast, like eggs, will improve satiety, maintain an enduring energy level and improve cognitive skills like memory recall time. In sharp contrast, eating cereal, bagels, toast and drinking orange juice will numb your brain with sugar overload and will drive you into cravings for more food in only a few hours.
Can your breakfast give you energy all day long?
Eggs are the perfect choice for breakfast. The protein in eggs provides steady and sustained energy because it does not cause a surge in blood sugar or insulin levels, which can lead to a rebound effect or energy “crash” as blood sugar levels drop.Because eggs won’t spike insulin levels, your body can immediately go into a fat burning mode, and this will also block any attempts to store more fat.
The choice is easy. Choose eggs and avoid those high carbohydrate foods and supposedly healthy grains. The grains will make you fat, drive your blood pressure up and make you lose bone. If you don’t believe a heart surgeon like me, then ask the cardiologist Dr. William Davis who wrote Wheat Belly.
