The egg is healthy and good for losing weight. Debunking myths

Desserts

My son was very fond of eggs when he was little, and he asked me very often. But when my mother found out that it was a very present food in her diet, she cried out to heaven, so she was always hiding from her the quantity and frequency with which she was given them for lunch or dinner. I was convinced that they couldn't be bad and that they were not more fattening than other types of food, providing nutrients, but I felt like an egg trader, falsifying their presence in my kitchen.

We are used to receiving news about the goodness or badness of some foods, which have been crossed out for years as harmful, to discover later that we were not only in a mistake, but also these are full of health benefits, such as it has been the case with olive oil. It seems that now we are beginning to see the light regarding the egg, which Vitónica tells us about as a good source of protein and a food aid in weight loss.

New studies carried out have shown that the consumption of eggs does not increase the level of cholesterol in the blood if an egg is consumed a day, contrary to the advice of yesteryear that indicated a limit on the consumption of four pieces a week. But if possible, the most surprising conclusion refers to the results of another study in which people who ate two eggs a day for eight weeks lost 65% more weight and a greater decrease in hip contour than the rest of the subjects studied.
