Many studies support the importance of breakfast in managing weight. A study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition suggests that eggs may play a significant role in promoting weight loss and satiety. Researchers found that a breakfast consisting of eggs reduced hunger and calorie intake at lunch and over the next 24 hours when compared to a breakfast consisting of a small bagel.

The participants in the study consumed two breakfasts consisting of the same calories and weight value. One group ate eggs and toast with low-calorie jelly, while the other group ate a 3-½ inch bagel with cream cheese and a fat-free yogurt. The group who ate the eggs and toast consumed an average of 163 calories less at lunch, and an average of 418 calories less over the next 24 hours!

Eggs are nutritious, cheap, convenient, and easy to prepare. You can hard boil a batch of eggs and refrigerate them up to a week. It only takes 2 to 5 minutes to poach an egg, and just a couple of minutes to microwave an egg. Even those on the run have time to enjoy a nutritious, filling breakfast. Eggs offer high quality protein, and 14 essential vitamins and minerals. So try to start off your day with eggs for breakfast. Add dairy and whole grains to balance out the meal and you could find yourself quite full, and better able to stick to your Diet Center weight loss program!
