Egg breakfast enhances weight loss
Vander Wal JS, Gupta A, Khosla P, Dhurandhar NV (2008) Egg breakfast enhancesweight loss. International Journal of Obesity 32: 1545 - 1551 This randomized trial, afollow-up to a preliminary study documenting the satiety potential of eggs,examined the effect of egg breakfast on weight loss. Otherwise healthy overweightor obese subjects (n = 160) were assigned to Egg(E), Egg-Diet (ED), Bagel (B), orBagel-Diet (BD) groups. The two “egg groups” and the two “bagel groups” were prescribed egg breakfastcontaining 2 eggs (340 kcal) or a breakfast equal in kcal and weight but containingbagels, respectively, for > 5 d / wk. The two “diet groups” were prescribed about 1,000 kcal energy deficit low-fat diet. The other groups were asked not to change their kcal intake. At baseline, all groupsmatched for age, BMI, gender and race distribution, body fat, and plasma lipids.After 8 wks, the ED group had 65% greater weight loss vs the BD group (mean ±SD;- 6.0 ± 5.0 vs -3.5 ± 5.2 lb, p <.05) and 83% greater decrease in waistcircumference (p<.05).Weight loss induced by a diet while on egg breakfast was about twice than thatinduced while on bagel breakfast (5.4 + 5.1 vs 2.8 + 5.2 lb; p < .03). The ED groupalso reported a greater improvement in feeling energetic than the BD group (p < .05).Changes in plasma total- , HDL- and LDL-cholesterol and triglycerides did not differsignificantly between groups. Eating egg breakfast while on weight loss dietenhances weight loss, presumably by increasing adherence due to greater satiety.
