Dr. Nishant Rao Examines the Weight Loss Merits of the Recent 'Egg Diet' Craze

JACKSON, MS–(Marketwired – March 09, 2017) – The Egg Diet is gaining steam as a way to lose weight fast. Diets that rely heavily on protein do normally provide weight loss benefits due to the fact that consuming added protein does greatly reduce appetite and assists with portion control since protein helps one to feel full quicker and for a longer period of time. High protein diets also contribute to muscle repair and growth which leads to a higher metabolism and higher fat burning (even at rest). However, with protein as the basis of any diet, individuals must be careful as not to overconsume or neglect nutritional balance. Higher protein can also mean elevated cholesterol and in some cases, it can have damaging effects on the kidneys.
