Eggs are really common breakfast food that keeps falling in and out of favor with doctors. We keep hearing that eating eggs is good for you as it is full of protein and could be an alternative to eating meat. On the other hand, some doctors recommend avoiding eggs as they might influence your cholesterol levels as they are full of fats. Here is what actually will happen when you eat one egg a day.
Source of protein
Eggs are a great source of protein which is almost fully (98%) absorbed by our body. The biggest advantage is that it is very low in calories (roughly 70 kcal per egg). Obviously, a boiled egg is preferred as no extra oils are used to prepare it. Protein keeps you full longer and is necessary if you have a long day in front of you. That’s why an egg is a food common for breakfast. Bodybuilders prefer raw eggs as well but remember that a cooked egg is absorbed better.
Eggs are a source of vitamins and minerals which support your bodily function. Even one egg contributes significantly to the daily requirement of Vitamin A, riboflavin, Vitamin B12, phosphorus, zinc and Vitamin D. All of these are necessary for normal body function and normally are very low in the modern diet. Some of them heavily contribute to eye health and reduce the risk of eye-related diseases.
