Having Eggs for Breakfast can help you Lose Weight!

eggsEggs for breakfast will keep those hunger pangs away until lunchtime and might help you to control weight gain suggest study. 

Eggs keep people feeling fuller longer because they contain high quality protein. Researchers at the Pennington Biomedical Research Centre in Louisiana, US, found those given an egg had significantly lower levels of ghrelin, a hormone that stimulates appetite, in their blood three hours after breakfast. They also had significantly higher levels of another hormone, called PYY3-36, which signals we are full.

In the study, 20 healthy people ate a breakfast of two eggs that had been scrambled or a bowl of cereal containing the same amount of calories and protein for a week.
Those who had eggs felt fuller and ate less at lunch, an 'all-you-can eat' buffet. Levels of ghrelin, which is associated with feelings of hunger, were lower in the egg-eaters and amounts of PYY, a hormone that helps make us feel full were higher. Egg’s satiating effects are usually attributed to the high level of protein it contains.

Researcher’s says
Dr Dhurandhar, who led the study and had treated more than 10,000 obesity patients, said from his work it is clear that losing weight is not as simple as telling people to eat less and exercise more.
He said that appetite suppressants can help booster willpower. Drug side-effects means that a food that curbs appetite could be the solution.
"This study shows that diets with higher protein quality may enhance satiety, leading to better compliance and success of a weight loss diet."
 Advising would-be dieters start the day with an egg or two, he said: ‘They will feel full and that will help them stick to their diet and get better weight loss.
‘Eggs don’t have magic powers of cutting weight but they may just help you say “no”.’
He added: "This study raises the question: are some foods with higher protein quality nature’s appetite suppressants?"
He also suggested that Longer-term research was needed to see if high quality protein breakfasts could help people lose weight.

Tracy Parker, heart health dietitian at the British Heart Foundation (BHF), said: "This finding could help people who are trying to lose weight or stop snacking. It shows the quality of protein in your diet, rather than the quantity, can affect how full you feel. 
"However, as the study was funded by the American Egg Board, it did not look into other high quality proteins. Further comparison of the effect of lean meat, poultry and fish on appetite should be explored.
"An egg breakfast could keep you from mid-morning snacking but remember to use healthier cooking methods. Try boiling or poaching eggs rather than frying and avoid adding butter to scrambled eggs."

Results of the study are being presented at the European Congress on Obesity in Lyon, France.

    I agree with this! Eggs have helped me lose weight when consumed mid-morning or for lunch. I feel fuller, have more energy. But research has said to just eat 4-5 a week. The question then becomes what about the fat content, cholesterol etc. Is it better to eat fewer eggs and more egg whites for the protein?
