Eggs can quell your appetite

According to the Harvard School of Health:

“A solid body of research shows that for most people, cholesterol in food has a much smaller effect on blood levels of total cholesterol and harmful LDL cholesterol than does the mix of fats in the diet. Recent research has shown that moderate egg consumption—up to one a day—does not increase heart disease risk in healthy individuals.”

The key words there are "most people" and “healthy individuals” – no diabetes or history of heart disease.

When eating eggs I feel full longer.  I thought it was just me, but studies confirm that eggs will help to quell your appetite. The article, Is it OK to eat eggs every day?, addresses the myths regarding cholesterol and eggs and mentions two studies on eggs and satiation.

One study: “They also ate less at lunch and dinner after having the egg breakfast as opposed to the other breakfasts.”

The other study: “Eggs for lunch could increase satiety more than a carbohydrate meal and might even help reduce between-meal calorie intake.”
