Eggs can help you to lose weight and stay fit and healthy. In fact, eggs should be considered a "superfood", according to a new study carried out by dietician and public health nutritionist, Dr Carrie Ruxton.

The research paper, due to be published in Nutrition & Food Science Journal in June, confirms that eggs are a rich source of protein, as well as several essential nutrients, particularly vitamin D, vitamin B12, selenium and choline.

As well as being one of the most nutrient dense foods, Dr Ruxton’s findings also show that eating eggs helps a person feel fuller for longer and can therefore help with weight management and better diet quality. The antioxidants found in egg yolk may also help prevent age-related macular degeneration, an eye condition that can lead to blindness.

    This is not a new finding. It is already an established fact. Two eggs at breakfast will provide satiety, making one to eat less for the lunch or even skip the lunch, so that the total calorie intake will be reduced, leading to loss of body weight.
