To determine if eating eggs had an impact on diet or body composition, Spanish researchers evaluated the body compositions of 355 university students.
All of the participants in the trial, which was written up in Clinical Nutrition, ranged in age from 18 to 30. To get a BMI score, height, weight, and waist circumference were all measured.
Depending on how frequently they consumed eggs, participants were split into three groups: once to four times per week, at least five times per week.
It makes no difference whether you eat an omelet or a hard-boiled egg because the study didn't note the method of cooking the eggs.
Data analysis revealed that the BMI and fat percentages of individuals who consumed eggs at least five times per day were much lower than those of the other two groups.
They had a BMI of about 22.5, as opposed to slightly less than 23.5 in the group that consumed up to four eggs per week and 23.5 in the group that consumed less than one egg.
