Weight loss: How eggs can help in weight loss? What is the right way to eat eggs?
Dietician Neha Pathania explains, “Eggs are high in protein. Protein-rich foods increase metabolism and thus egg helps improving metabolism and weight loss. Eggs are a better source of protein as compared to milk, paneer among others as it doesn’t have carbohydrates and thus making it the right option for weight loss. 2-3 boiled egg whites are recommended with the Indian diet. However, fried eggs aren’t recommended as the intake of oil will add more calories to your diet. The best part of the consumption of egg is that there is no such right time. It can be eaten any time of the day according to one’s 24-hour diet recall. People who are health conscious or on diet can incorporate eggs according to their calorie intake at anytime of the day.”
Shalini Garwin who is a dietician also explains, “Eggs can be used in weight loss because eggs are a rich source of protein and don’t have carbohydrates. Usually, carbohydrates are cut down from the diet of those, who are on weight loss regime. Eggs are used as a source of energy and so that the body starts consuming the body fat for more energy. But that doesn’t mean one can have as many numbers of eggs. A normal person can consume 4 egg whites in the whole day. If consumed fried or scrambled then it is recommended to have it made in non-stick pan with very less or no oil. We recommend that one should consume egg either at breakfast or dinner.”
