Myths about the nutritional value of eggs

Eating egg yolks will gain weight

Many people avoid eating egg yolks because they do not want to gain weight.

However, nutritionists claim that, without the yolk, eggs will lack almost all fat-soluble and water-soluble vitamins and minerals.

Egg yolks provide extra protein, along with other useful nutrients for weight management.

For example, egg yolks are filled with vitamin D, which contributes to the absorption of calcium.

The yolk also contains almost half of the egg’s protein, which is a nutrient that helps you feel full all morning after eating.
