Benefits of adding an extra egg at breakfast


Eating
more protein could bump up your post-meal calorie burn, suggests research in
the 
Journal of the American College
of Nutrition
. In a small study, researchers had 10
healthy, normal-weight women between 19 and 22 years old eat a high-protein
diet one day and a high-complex-carb diet another, to compare how each diet
affected their metabolism. 

(The first diet contained 30 percent protein and 30
percent complex carbs. The second had 50 percent complex carbs and 15 percent
protein. Roughly equal amounts of sugar and fat made up the rest.) They found
that after meals on the high-protein day, the women’s bodies were producing
about twice as much heat, an indication that they were also burning more
calories.
