Weight And Di­a­betes Con­trol

The People's Friend - - Health -

The high pro­tein con­tent of eggs makes them use­ful for mak­ing you feel fuller for longer, so you can keep your food con­sump­tion down. US re­search has shown that eat­ing eggs for break­fast could help limit your daily calo­rie in­take by more than 400 calo­ries. Other stud­ies (from the Uni­ver­sity of Fin­land) have shown that eat­ing eggs can pro­tect against di­a­betes (four eggs per week can slash the risk by 40%). Ex­perts be­lieve the nu­tri­ents in eggs im­prove the way the body metabolises sugar, and help to dampen down the in­flam­ma­tion which can lead to chronic ill­ness, in­clud­ing Type 2 di­a­betes.
