Packed with protein and easy to make, adding this brunch staple to your plate every morning could help move the scale

If you're reserving eggs for your brunch-filled weekends, you need to know a secret: They may just be the keys to weight-loss success. Here's why you should be eating more eggs to lose more pounds.

1. They're proven to work. A 2008 study found that obese subjects lost more weight and had a higher reduction in waist circumference when they ate a breakfast of two eggs instead of bagels (both paired with a calorie-reduced diet), even though each group's breakfast contained the same amount of calories.

2. They're packed with protein. Your morning meal should be full of protein to keep you feeling satisfied until lunch. In fact, many experts say that you should get at least 20 grams of protein with your breakfast to stay full and boost metabolism. The good news? Eating two eggs puts you on the right track-one egg contains about six grams of protein.

3. They're a healthy (and convenient) choice. When you're starving and in need of something to sate your grumbling stomach, a hardboiled egg can be the quick, low-calorie snack that tides you over until your next meal. Pair one hardboiled egg (78 calories) with an apple (80 calories) for a substantial snack that will keep you satisfied without needing to resort to the vending machine.

Can't bear the thought of grabbing another hard-boiled egg before you head out the door? Many of these healthy, creative egg recipes can be made ahead of time so you can still stay on the right track no matter how rushed you are in the morning.

Over the years I've tried many methods recommended by both my friends and family but none of them seemed to work out for me until I chanced upon this holy grail where I've lost almost 33 pounds in just 1 month trying it out! I can now fit in dresses two sizes down and receive many compliments from not only my lovely husband, but colleagues and girlfriends about how great I look right now! I'm here to share with you guys because I am really thankful and hope someone who also needs this can experience similar results as me! Here is the link to my holy grail method! https://bit.ly/2OUI7BW

My goal is to train and inspire people to show them that the weight loss is possible. Going from someone who would rather sit in his bedroom playing Call of Duty to someone who has lost 50 pounds and is working toward living the rest of his life as a healthy and fit individual is something I am very proud of.

I'm liking my new lifestyle. I don't want to go back to how I used to live. Usually by this time into a new program I lose my motivation. But this time is different. The motivation is actually increasing. I'm feeling like my goal is truly attainable! I really can do this! In 20 days, I'm down 14.6 lbs! following this weight loss program: https://bit.ly/2rHqH0d
