Despite what you may hear, eggs are and always will be one of the healthiest weight loss foods you can eat. Not only are they tasty and versatile, but eggs are also full of essential protein, nutrients and minerals. At just 72 calories, one large egg is packed with protein—a little over six grams—along with vitamins A, D and B2. Eggs also contain healthy fats as well as minerals like folate and biotin, just to name a few. So it’s safe to say, egg breakfasts are an egg-cellent way to start your day.

Eggs are great for weight loss diets, and thanks to the convenient meal options from South Beach Diet, you can enjoy them in all of your favorite ways—from scrambled to baked—all while staying true to your weight loss goals.
