1. Whole Eggs
Once feared of being high in cholesterol, whole eggs have made a comeback.
Although eating lots of eggs will increase the “bad” LDL cholesterol in some people, they are one of the best foods to eat when you need to lose weight. They are high in protein and fat and very filling.
A study of 30 overweight women found that eating eggs for breakfast instead of bagels increased feelings of fullness and caused participants to eat less for the next 36 hours.
Another eight-week study found that eggs for breakfast increased weight loss on low-calorie diets compared to bagels.
Eggs are also incredibly nutritious and can help you get all of the nutrients you need for a low-calorie diet. Interestingly, almost all of the nutrients are in egg yolks.
