New Information About Eggs

According to an article in the August 2010 issue of Better Homes and Gardens, bring on the bacon and eggs.  A new study shows that eating a little fat first thing when you wake up and keeping fat and calories low in the evening might ward off metabolic syndrome - a cluster of symptoms, including abdominal fat, high triglyceride levels, and insulin resistance (that increases risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes). 

Your first meal seems to program metabolism for the rest of the day, says Molly Bray,Ph.D., professor of epidemiology at the University of Alabama.  A relatively fat-rich breakfast helps you metabolize fats and carbohydrates during the day, while a carb-rich breakfast seems to promote only carb metabolism.  In addition, eggs reduce hunger, so you eat less at lunch and all day long.  In a new University of Connecticut study, breakfast egg-eaters ate 112 fewer calories at an all-you-can eat buffet lunch three hours later than bagel-eating counterparts.  They also consumed about 400 fewer calories in the 24 hours following breakfast than did their bagel buddies.
