Eating Eggs and Weightloss

Did you know eggs are a great food staple when trying to lose weight and eat healthy? Eggs are high in protein and are a great way to burn fat — especially the protein found in eggs.  The protein in egg yolks can stimulate the release of a hormone called glucagon which helps burn fat.

Eggs are easy to prepare and and inexpensive source of protein. They can be prepared in many ways so you don’t become bored of eating them often. For a quick snack in the middle of the day, hard boil extra eggs, store in the fridge, then eat when a food craving comes on and won’t go away!

How do you like your eggs prepared?
