The Paleo Diet is all the rage at the moment and so is the 5:2 Diet, which quite a few of my friends are having great success with, and looking at the pictures that they share online, there’s one super-food which they’re all turning to when it comes to healthy eating. There are poached or scrambled eggs for breakfast, boiled eggs with salad for lunch and a variety of omelettes for dinner. But what makes eggs so popular with those trying to lose weight?
There are only around 70 calories in an egg, depending on its size and the yolk of the egg is full of nutritious goodness as it includes all the essential vitamins and minerals that your body needs. The way you prepare your eggs obviously affect how healthy they are. Eggs fried in fat will always have more calories than a boiled egg, but if you look out for these hidden diet traps and combine your egg dishes with vegetable sides, salads or whole grains, they can be a great low-calorie meal option full of protein, vitamins and healthy fats.
