As crazy as it may sound, there’s something known as the “Boiled Egg Diet”. What could it possibly mean? A diet that consists of boiled eggs? And if so, how can one survive just on eggs?
The diet mainly requires you to consume at least a minimum of two to three eggs per day, which may be incorporated at regular, timely intervals, accompanied with a low calorie fruit or vegetables that aren’t starchy in nature. Why might this work for you? Eggs are packed with,
- Vitamin D
- Vitamin B12
- Raise levels of good cholesterol
Besides having numerous nutritional benefits, egg also helps you feel fuller for a longer time which could help you avoid binge eating and maintain the calorie intake you need in order to lose weight! To include eggs in your regular diet also helps build stronger immunity. The famous celebrity star Nicole Kidman also was known to have been on the boiled egg diet! One large boiled egg offers 71 calories, 6 grams (g) of protein, 5 g of fat, 0.4 g of carbohydrates, and 0 g fiber, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). While eating eggs throughout the day can be mundane, you can try eating it just as one meal or an evening snack.
