They help you cut your daily intake of calories. The protein in eggs can hold you over until you are able to make further smart decisions in your diet. The protein curbs hunger and cravings inching you closer and closer to your goal weight and fitness level. According to Runner's World, egg protein is easy for your body to absorb, making it a key player in muscle-repair after a long workout or run.
I have a feeling that at this point, you have already thought about the dreaded "cholesterol" rumored to be lurking in those eggs. Yes it's true...it's in there. However you are packing in so much nutrition it is far from devastating to your health or diet. You other option is to choose egg whites like me! I like them better personally. And there goes most of your cholesterol! But how to get the yolk out without breaking it up?? When you crack your egg in half, just pour the yolk back and forth letting the rest fall into the bowl for mixing!
Bone strength is critical for runners too. Eggs are one of the few natural sources of Vitamin D which allows your body to efficiently absorb calcium making our bones good and strong! So crack a few open for breakfast, a snack, or try it in your smoothie.
Trust me...your body will thank you!
