Here are four reasons why eggs should be considered as part of your nutrition plan.

*When it comes to nutrition, eggs are world class. One egg contains good amounts of vitamins A, B-12, B-2, B5 and selenium. Plus, eggs have small amounts of such vitamins and minerals as calcium, iron, potassium, zinc and folate. All these vitamins and minerals are in the yolk. So, you can nix the idea of throwing the yellow part away.

* While it is true that an egg has 212 mg of cholesterol, studies have shown that ingested cholesterol has little effect on blood cholesterol levels. Your liver produces cholesterol daily. The amount is determined by the volume of food you eat. When you get a bulk of your cholesterol from food, the liver produces less. This is the reason eggs can improve your cholesterol profile.

* The protein from eggs provide the building blocks for repairing and improving the function of your body. They have the 9 essential amino acids that are vital to muscle repair and growth.

* You want to talk weight loss and egg consumption? Many studies have shown that egg-eaters lose over 50% more weight and inches around the waist. This is attributed to the satiating effect of eating eggs. If you have doubts or questions about this, call me at (619)-990-4479 and I’ll give you a list of the peer reviewed studies on this subject.
