Eggs have been found by numerous studies to be one of the best breakfasts for weight loss. They are high in protein, which makes them ideal for the morning.
Eggs have been shown to reduce appetite, which can give weight loss efforts a boost.
Various studies have shown eggs to have this effect.
One study from the Department of Psychology, Saint Louis University, Missouri, looked into the effects of eggs on keeping test subjects feeling full.
The study found 30 overweight women reported feeling fuller and eating less in the day after eating eggs for breakfast, compared to eating a bagel.
“For example boiled or poached, without added salt scrambled without butter and using low-fat milk instead of cream.”
It added: “Frying eggs can increase their fat content by around 50 percent.”
Scrambled egg is one of the least healthy ways to eat eggs.
Other healthy breakfast options include yoghurt and smoothies.
Data from the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey showed a link between how many cups of coffee women drink a day and their total body fat and belly fat.
It found women aged between 20 and 44 who drank two or three cups of coffee a day had the lowest level of body fat.
Women who drank coffee, of any age, had an average body fat percentage 2.8 percent lower than women of any who didn’t.
Interestingly, the results were the same even if the coffee was decaffeinated.
