Two Eggs a Day Can Keep the Fat Away
There has been a lot of research done over the years regarding the many benefits of eggs. The most popular, is weight loss. Now, I can't see eggs doing much if you eat them with fatty meat, breads and cook it all in butter... BUT! If you cook them in a natural fat source such as olive oil and eat them with vegetables, I can see weight loss happening.
Over the past few weeks, I have been on what is known as a "slow-carb" diet. I have experience a good amount of weight loss. I haven't added in exercise but I have been eating 2 eggs and vegetables (as cooked above) almost every day. I at first thought it was the beans contributing to the weight loss, but I did go about 4 days without eggs and my weight started to creep up a little bit. I ended up gaining about 6lbs. For that reason, I feel it wasn't the beans. I ate 2 eggs again yesterday and once again, weighed myself this morning, and my weight dropped, about 2.5lbs.
I'm not a doctor and I can't really explain this scientifically but for some reason, eating a meal of just 2 eggs and vegetables cooked in olive oil seems to work for me. I will explain what I do to cook them, and I want to see if this works for anyone else.
Keep in mind, I said I changed my diet. I am not eating bread or pasta, Just a few table spoons of wheat germ and crackers and cheese as a snack.
How I cook them:
- Put about 2 table spoons of virgin olive oil in a frying pan and let heat up.
- Add chopped onions (a small hand full)
- Let the onions cook - Bring water to a boil and add in mixed frozen veggies.
- Scramble up two whole eggs with a touch of milk, salt and pepper. - add to onions
- Cook both till done, then EAT!
That's a meal I have been eating every day for the past 3 weeks (minus the 4 days) and I lost about 12lbs. I was up to 16lbs pounds (at only 2 weeks) lost but stopped eating eggs for those few days.
Give it a try for a week and let me know (comment!) if it works for you!
