Diet Myth #13: THE EGG DIET doesn’t work!! Eggs are a good food and eating eggs as part of a balanced diet will not raise your cholesterol. On the other hand, eating an egg by itself will leave you hungry.

THE EGG DIET doesn't work!! Eggs are a good food and eating eggs as part of a balanced diet will not raise your cholesterol. On the other hand, eating an egg by itself will leave you hungry. One egg has only 6 grams of protein in the egg white which is a very good protein. The egg yellow has lutein, which makes it yellow and is the same Phytonutrient found in spinach and avocado where it is green in color. The egg yellow has fat and the type of fat depends on what the chicken ate. There are omega-3 rich eggs which come from chickens fed omega-3 in their diet. A hard boiled egg with the yellow removed is fat-free. You can have 3 to 4 egg whites for protein and one egg yellow for taste as one high protein meal but the idea that eating eggs all day will help you lose weight is wrong. Eat a balanced diet, protein shakes, and exercise daily as part of a healthy active lifestyle for successful weight management. There is nothing magical about eggs for weight loss!! #drdavidheber #egg #diet #protein #fat to learn more go to www.drdavidheber.com and www.herbalifenutritioninstitute.com
