Egg diet is good or bad?
What is the basis of weight loss? That's right, on exclusion from the diet of harmful high-calorie foods, which include fried, smoked and fatty foods. They not only contribute to the deposition of fat cells, but also have a negative impact on health, increasing the level of cholesterol and accumulating slags in the body.
Their exclusion from the diet will be a "holiday" for the body, it will gladly and easily survive such changes in nutrition. But is it possible to eat eggs in the diet and how will they affect health and the process of losing weight?
So, eggs – a product of animal origin, which can be eaten both raw and boiled and fried. Also they are added with various dishes, to improve the taste. But are they useful for diets? Let's try to figure it out.
Eggs with diets: can or not?
Everyone knows that the egg consists of protein and yolk. But not everyone knows that these two components are completely different in chemical composition from each other.
Egg protein consists of 90% of water, the remaining 10% is, in fact, the protein itself, while it does not contain fats and carbohydrates in general. Egg yolk consists of 12% of fats and 10% of cholesterol. The fats that are in it are mostly polyunsaturated, so they do not bring harm to the body as such. A cholesterol on the body has an impact is not very good, but its amount in it is not that big to talk about causing serious harm to the health.
Eggs contain in themselves:
- Niacin, responsible for brain nutrition and the formation of sex hormones;
- Choline, which promotes memory improvement and elimination of poisons from the liver;
- vitamin K;
- vitamin D;
- vitamins of group B;
- vitamin E;
- vitamin A;
- folic acid;
- amino acids;
- fats of omega-3;
Egg white is especially useful to the human body. It contains all the necessary amino acids and vitamins necessary for the body to function properly. It is easily digested and for a long time dulls the feeling of hunger, because of the large protein content.
But that's not all, egg white is a storehouse of proteins, which are "building materials" for muscles, the use of which is simply necessary during weight loss. After all, thanks to them and a balanced diet, fat cells begin to dissolve, which leads to weight loss, and muscle mass to build up, which leads to the disappearance of fat folds in the place where the muscles begin to loom.
As you can see, the eggs are not only useful for the body as a whole, they are also useful for losing weight, so there are eggs not only possible, but even necessary, during diets. In addition, this product of animal origin is low-calorie. At 100 g of product accounts for only 44 kcal.
