Eggs are an easy to make and inexpensive food to eat to get a lot of protein and nutrients. Eggs are a superfood, and might make sense to include in your diet. In this article, I’m going to share with you why I eat more than 30 eggs a week.
I eat a lot of eggs every week.
Usually, I’ll go through 30 eggs a week, and it seems I’m always buying a new container at the store.
For me, throwing some butter, or olive oil, in a pan, cracking 5 eggs and scrambling them up is a great way to get my protein for a meal.
Eating eggs is very good for you and can help you reach your fitness and health goals.
Now, you don’t need to eat as many eggs as me, but if you don’t eat eggs at all, then hopefully this article will inspire you to give them a try!
In this article, I’m going to share with you why I eat over 30 eggs a week, and some reasons why eating lots of eggs can help you reach your goals.
Why I Eat Lots of Eggs Every Week
Let me tell you about myself: I like to keep things simple.
When it comes to my eating habits, I especially like to keep things simple.
For me, I wouldn’t quite say I’m a bodybuilder, but the thought behind my diet is inspired by bodybuilders.
In my diet, I look to:
- have around 100 grams of protein a day
- eat a high amount of healthy fats (nuts for example)
- and have a low to moderate amount of carbohydrates
Since I work out a number of days a week, I’m not too concerned with my calories. Also, if I overdo one day, then I clean it up the next day.
With this diet plan, I’m able to eat basically anything in moderation, but typically, I’ll have two or three high protein meals a day, and snack on nuts, fruits and vegetables between those bigger meals.
As someone who is also interested in being financially successful, I also look to eat inexpensively.
What is an inexpensive food which is high in protein and is packed with a ton of nutrients? Eggs.
I love eggs and have been eating lots of eggs for a number of years now.
Eggs are fast and easy to make, are relatively inexpensive, are high in protein, and are relatively lower in calories.
With all of these benefits, these fit right into my simple diet plan.
I eat 5 or 6 eggs a day (either for lunch or dinner because I practice intermittent fasting and don’t eat breakfast), and eat over 30 eggs a week.
But these are just some of the reasons why eggs are amazing, and in the next section, I’m going to dive into the 3 reasons why I believe eggs should be included in your diet.
3 Reasons Why I Eat Lots of Eggs
Eggs are a superfood and can be a great addition to any diet plan. Eggs have many benefits.
3 main reasons why I eat lots of eggs are:
- Eggs have many health benefits and nutrients
- Eggs are high in protein
- The cost of eggs is relatively inexpensive
Let’s dive into these benefits of eggs in more detail now in the following sections.
1. Eggs Have Many Health Benefits and Nutrients
It’s a fact that eggs have many health benefits and nutrients.
Eggs are incredibly nutritious, because, as you may know, a whole egg has everything needed to produce a baby chicken!
Eggs are a superfood, and with vitamins A, B, D, E, K and other minerals, they have a little bit of almost every nutrient you need to be healthy!
Also, eggs can have many weight loss benefits.
In a study in overweight adults, calorie-restricted diets that included either eggs or a bagel for breakfast were compared; the people who consumed eggs for breakfast lowered their body mass index by 61 percent, lost 65 percent more weight, and reported feeling more energetic than those who ate a bagel for breakfast.
That study has some incredible results, and this is just more evidence for the benefits of eggs.
2. Eggs are High in Protein
One of the main reasons I love eggs is how they are high in protein.
Depending on the size, a single egg will have between 5 and 7 grams of protein.
This protein is high quality and contains all the essential amino acids necessarily for muscle growth.
In addition to being high in protein, eggs have a few grams of healthy fat, and no carbs.
Eggs are usually around 75 calories, and with this, you have a high protein, high fat and low calorie food which is filling and nutrients – again a perfect food to include in your diet!
For me, if I have 6 eggs, this will mean I’ll have a dish with:
- around 450 calories
- 35 grams of protein
- 30 grams of fat
- and little to no carbs.
For my physical fitness and health goals, this dish is fantastic for pre- or post-workout.
I’m looking to get to my dream body, and eggs are a great help towards this goal.
3. Eggs are Relatively Inexpensive
One last reason why I love eggs is how cheap they are. For me, when I shop at my local target, I’m able to get 18 eggs for less than $2.
When I make eggs, I typically scramble 5-6 eggs. From a cost perspective, 6 eggs is less than $0.75.
For roughly 30 grams of protein, this is the start of a pretty cheap and high protein meal!
During the week, I eat over 30 eggs, and since I’m able to buy these eggs at such a good price, my weekly expense for my egg purchases is usually around $5 a week.
If I was to go out, I’d spend a lot more money on food. With making eggs, I’m able to save a lot of money by eating in.
