How Many Eggs Can I Eat In A Day For Weight Loss

Love eggs? You don’t need to ditch your love for it to maintain your waistline. Just imagine a whole egg contains all the nutrients needed to turn a single cell into an entire baby chicken!! However, eggs have gotten a bad reputation because of the yolks.

However, one must consider the form and number. Having boiled egg white instead of whole fried eggs will help keep a check on the cholesterol level.

The number of eggs one could eat on a weight loss program should not be more than 2-4 egg whites in a day or 1 whole egg in a week. We all know that Egg being the ‘king’ in the protein family (called as the reference protein) has the best biological value protein; however, summer being at its peak eggs can heat your body from within, so one should make sure to drink ample fluids like buttermilk, lemon water etc to neutralize its effects.

Eggs definitely provide that essential vitamins and minerals during the weight loss regime, but one should always remember the balance mix of good diet and a consistent fitness regime to shed off those extra kilos.
