Not all calories are created equal. Different foods go through different metabolic pathways in the body. They can have vastly different effects on hunger, hormones and how many calories we burn.
Here are the 30 most weight loss-friendly foods on earth, that are supported by science.
1: Whole Egs
It may be hard to believe, but the same food that is blamed for raising cholesterol levels is a helpful tool in getting rid of fat. Even more amazing is that while the egg white contains most of the fat-burning powers (and can be eaten without causing undue harm to your cholesterol levels), you should eat the entire egg to reap the maximum fat-burning benefits.
The secret to the eggʼs ability to help you burn off fat is found in the protein and vitamin B-12 inside of the egg. Both of these give you a stronger body. They also work tirelessly to seek and destroy fats in your body.
Once feared for being high in cholesterol, whole eggs have been making a comeback. New studies show that they don't adversely affect blood cholesterol and don't cause heart attacks. What's more... they are among the best foods you can eat if you need to lose weight. They're high in protein, healthy fats, and can make you feel full with a very low amount of calories. One study of 30 overweight women showed that eating eggs for breakfast, instead of bagels, increased satiety and made them eat less for the next 36 hours. Another 8 week study found that eggs for breakfast increased weight loss on a calorie restricted diet compared to bagels. Eggs are also incredibly nutrient dense and can help you get all the nutrients you need on a calorie restricted diet. Almost all the nutrients are found in the yolks.
