Why Eggs are the Perfect Addition to Any Diet!
Eggs. They are one of the most nutrient dense foods on the planet, yet some people have been giving them a bad rap. Too many poeple out there are arguing that eating eggs are bad for your cholesterol levels, despite the fact that recent Studies have concluded that 2 eggs a day will actually improve your lipid profile. Although the average egg has roughly 5g of fat (in the yolk), only 1.5g of that fat is saturated fat. So if eggs aren’t so bad, what makes them so good?
As I said before, eggs are among the top, most nutrient dense foods in the world, a highly recommended part of primal eating. They’re one of the only foods that contain naturally occurring Vitamin D, along with zinc, iron, and Vitamins A, D, E & B12. Containing only 70 calories, eggs are an excellent way to get energy levels up without the fear of unwanted weight gain. This high quality nutrient value in eggs, when eaten with breakfast, decreases the probability of overeating throughout the day.
In fact, eggs are among the perfect food for both weight loss and muscle gain. Excluding water, protein is the next most abundant element in our bodies, making protein an extremely vital part of any diet. Eggs not only contain a good 6g of protein, but an extremely high quality protein containing all 9 essential amino acids, making easy it for the body absorb with minimal wastage. Whether your goal is weight loss of muscle gain, protein plays a vital role in muscle repair and maintenance. Muscle mass is one of the major keys to keeping your metabolism burning. With such high quality protein, adding eggs to your diet can make a huge difference.
Including eggs in your diet is quiet easy. You can boil, hard boil, scramble, bake or even have them raw (for the hardcore out there). 2 Eggs with breakfast will give you 12g of protein, 10g of fat (only 3g of that being saturated fat), at 140 calories. This small addition to your meal will do wonders for you appetite and health. So if you’re considering adding eggs to your diet, ignore the bad wrap because it’s simply not true. Get a hold of some eggs, and start enjoying the benefits!
