Eating two eggs for breakfast can help you lose weight?(!)

Forget counting calories and cutting out carbs. The key to losing weight could be as simple as having two eggs for breakfast.
Scientists have shown that those who start their day with poached, boiled or scrambled eggs can lose up to two-thirds more weight than others.

So the old adverts which urged us to "Go to work on an egg" could have been right after all.
The secret of the egg's success lies in its ability to make us feel full for longer than many other foods.
Researchers from Louisiana State University in the U.S. looked at the eating habits of a group of overweight and obese women.
The women, who were following a low-fat diet, were asked to eat either two eggs a day for breakfast, or have a bagel.
The two meals contained the same number of calories and weighed roughly the same amount.
However, after eight weeks of breakfasting, the slimmers who had eaten eggs had lost the most weight.

Also in Britain, the Food Standards Agency says that while eggs are a good choice as part of a healthy, balanced diet, it is important to eat as great a variety of foods as possible.
