Eggs are packed with protein which means you'll be feeling fuller and satisfied after eating them, so you'll be less likely to eat later whatever you can get your hands on.

Men who had two eggs for breakfast as part of a reduced-calorie plan lost 65% more weight and had more energy compared with those who had a bagel in the morning.
