Eggs – 10 Slimming foods to eat every day
With the Christmas festivities and indulgences over, and the focus now being on “new year, new me” we thought we’d start the working year with some foods that might help dieters. This comes from a Harper’s Bazaar article. We’ve taken some pics and added a little information about each food. So far we’ve featured avocado, which can suppress hunger and yesterday, artichokes, which may help with slimming and tasty chocolate which can make you slimmer if eaten regularly. We’ve also looked at high protein, high-fibre almond butter, an alternative to peanut butter (which be be suitable for allergy sufferers) and then yesterday. For dieters on a budget we have featured water, cottage cheese and, yesterday, gherkins. Today we cast an eye over eggs.
Eggs are rich in protein, which can help dieters’ satiety, according to the article. It’s a bit of cliche, but, breakfast is considered the most important meal of the day. According to research published in Obesity , a high-protein breakfast may keep you from eating an extra 200 calories during night time snacking.
Eggs are a source of vitamin D, one egg provides 20% of the vitamin D recommended daily allowance (RDA). Vitamin D is vital for optimising your fat burning potential. Eggs are also a complete protein source (according to BBC Good Food), meaning they contain all eight essential amino acids. Essential amino acids are the ones which the body cannot synthesise, and so must be obtained from diet. If you’re in a rush on mornings, you can even boil an egg the evening before and store it in the fridge overnight, ready to enjoy with your breakfast.
