Get the skinny on these five foods that burn extra calories and keep you feeling fuller longer. By Julie Upton, MS, RD.

Eggs

Eggs

To combat cravings and control hunger all day, a protein-rich breakfast of eggs is key.  A large egg provides 6 grams of protein and just 70 calories. If you’re really looking to cut back, an egg white has just 30 calories and 3.5 grams of protein and no fat.

New research found that dieters who eat more protein earlier in the day lost more weight, were less hungry, and were more satisfied with their diet. In another study, dieters who ate an egg breakfast instead of a bagel meal lost 65% more weight and belly fat. Try loading morning eggs with veggies like in the recipe below.
