In the 1970s results from a major study led to the diet-heart hypothesis that eating dietary cholesterol caused blood cholesterol levels to rise, leading to heart disease. But thankfully, updated and modern studies have shown there is no connection between eggs and the risks for heart disease. It’s actually the opposite. Those who eat an egg-based breakfast along with a calorie-restricted, nutrient-balanced plan, show a loss of total body weight including a 16 per cent loss of body fat, a higher reduction in BMI and waist circumference. Start your day with eggs and you’ll feel fuller for longer and that prevents you from over-eating.
