Can Eating Eggs Lower Your Body Weight?
There is an overwhelming amount of information out there about how to shed pounds and lose unwanted weight. From intermittent fasting to meal plans that consist of shakes, a new fad diet seems to pop up every day. But a recent study has revealed that one common food that you can eat everyday can help shift weight, even on a higher calorie diet.
Researchers found that people who eat more than three eggs a week were more likely to have a better lipid profile. Lipids are fat-like molecules that circulate in the bloodstream and are linked to high cholesterol. Cholesterol and another type of blood fat called triglycerides cannot circulate loosely in the blood, so they travel in ‘round parcels’ called lipoproteins. Lipoproteins contain a special mix of fats and proteins which can cause issues with cholesterol, and can lead to heart disease.
The study found that women with a higher egg consumption have an overall better lipid profile, compared to those who ate less than one egg each week. They also had on average a lower body weight, even with a higher calorie diet.
