Thousands of women have tested the effectiveness of egg diet, exactly a diet based on the egg yolks. The whole point is in the substance called biotin (vitamin H), which is contained in yolks. It allows you to lose up to 10 kg of excess weight per week, controlling the metabolism of fats in the body and the process of their burning. Biotin being in the human body in large quantities, raspingly speaking, starts the process of expenditure of fat.
In addition, this also leads to the acceleration of carbohydrate metabolism – carbohydrates don’t have time to turn into fat and be deposited in the problem areas. It promotes the assimilation of protein, so this diet can be called a low-carb protein diet. It works with the proteins of any origin, which makes the process of losing weight even more effective. All these qualities make the egg diet fast, efficient and effective.
It would be easy enough to endure the diet, because when boiled egg reaches the stomach, it immediately begins to digest it, bringing a feeling of satiety for a long time. However, the process of digesting is quite long – about three to four hours the egg is in the stomach. Thus, the body expends a lot of energy for digestion that affects the weight loss. It will be very effective if you eat the yolk with some citrus fruits, such as grapefruit. This will prolong the feeling of satiety, accelerate the energy metabolism and positively affect the process of weight loss. This is a very advantageous combination, so this diet is often called egg – citrus diet, egg – orange diet or egg – grapefruit diet.
