Weight Management

happy-fitness-girlWeight management is a crucial aspect of preventing and managing chronic disease such as metabolic syndrome. All-natural, high-quality protein from eggs helps build muscle and allows people to feel fuller longer and stay energized, which can assist with weight loss.  1 2   

Recent research undertaken in the USA, showed that an egg breakfast, compared with a bagel breakfast of similar calories, has been shown to lead to greater feelings of fullness and reduced food intake at later meals, resulting in a significant reduction in BMI and waist circumference.3 

Luckily, it’s easy to create a nutritious breakfast. Pair eggs with fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and low-fat dairy foods as part of an overall healthy diet. More information about maintaining a healthy body weight .
