Top 9 Healthiest Foods to Eat to Lose Weight


Super-foods build bones, prevent chronic diseases, improve your eyesight, and even keep your mind sharp. But did you know new evidence suggests these foods can also help you get—and stay—slim? 

  1. Chicken Skinless chicken breasts are a traditional backbone of healthy weight-loss plans. Because chicken has no carbs and just 5 g of fat per 3- to 4-oz. serving, many dieters rely primarily on chicken for their protein needs. Whether you prefer the breast or a skinless thigh or leg — which are similar in low-fat content — chicken is an excellent source of lean protein and has essential nutrients, including iron and zinc.
  1. Eggs- Eggs are among the healthiest foods on the planet and the yolk is by far the most nutritious part. Just imagine, the nutrients contained in one egg are enough to grow an entire baby chicken. Despite the fear mongering of the past few decades, eating eggs does NOT give you heart attacks. It’s nonsense. Eating eggs changes your cholesterol from small, dense LDL (bad) to large LDL (good), increases HDL (good) cholesterol and provides the unique antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin which are incredibly important for eye health. Eggs are high on the satiety index which means that they are particularly prone to make you feel full and eat less overall calories. A study in 30 overweight and obese women revealed that a breakfast of eggs  made them eat less overall calories for up to 36 hours. Bottom Line: Eggs are extremely nutritious and are so fulfilling that they make you eat less overall calories. Among the healthiest foods on the planet.
  1. Fish- Fish is very healthy and eating it is associated with a much lower risk of depression, other mental disorders and several chronic diseases.
  1. Vegetables- Vegetables are high in fiber, antioxidants and nutrients but very low in calories. Eat a variety of vegetables every day.
  1. Fruit- Fruits are real foods. They are tasty, increase variety in the diet and don’t require preparation. If you enjoy eating fruit, have some. If you need to lose weight then it’s probably best not to eat more than one per day.
  1. Nuts and Seeds- Nuts and seeds are nutritious, healthy and generally associated with improved health. Eat them, but not too much.
  1. Tubers- If you’re healthy, active and don’t need to lose weight, you can eat tubers like potatoes and sweet potatoes.
  1. Fats and Oils- Supplement your diet with some healthy saturated and monounsaturated fats. If appropriate, take some cod fish liver oil each day. Choose saturated fats for high-heat cooking.
  1. High-Fat Dairy- High-fat dairy is associated with lower risk of weight gain and a reduction in cardiovascular disease risk in some observational studies.




Protein will not make you fat!


Myth: Excess protein just turns to fat

We find this myth the most amusing.  Even if you knew nothing about nutrition, you’d probably assume it was quite difficult to turn a piece of muscle tissue into the fat that sometimes surrounds it. Just look at a piece of marbled steak. Intuitively, you’d probably think it would be some kind of magic to turn the red tissue into the white tissue.

You’d be right. It isn’t necessarily magic, but it is a very long and metabolically costly process to turn protein into fat. Protein needs to be broken down into amino acids and absorbed. That process alone burns about five times as many calories as the process of breaking down carbohydrates to glucose. Once the amino acids are available, they can be used for growth and repair or converted to glucose. If they are to be converted, that requires some energy again. The body will turn protein to glucose when necessary, but it prefers not to. If the glucose isn’t needed, it can then be converted to fat.

You can’t turn protein directly into fat. At some wildly excessive point, you might be able to eat so much protein that it could become useless and get stored as fat. However, protein has such a potent effect on reducing appetite, you wouldn’t be able to eat that excessive level on a daily basis. You’d also expend a lot of energy as heat with the excessive protein intake.



Myth: Vegetable protein is just as good as animal protein


Myth: Vegetable protein is just as good as animal protein

Just to be clear, we’re not opposed to getting some protein through plant sources. However, we would not rely only on plant-based protein sources, especially without using nutritional supplements.

A higher protein diet typically has 30% or more of its calories from protein. Put another way, protein intake is often 1 gram per pound lean mass to 1 gram per pound body weight, depending on one’s body composition. To achieve protein intakes that high without supplementation would be difficult with only plants, unless someone ate an enormous amount of soy. 

Aside from the difficulty in getting enough protein from plants alone, most are deficient in certain amino acids. It’s possible to combine them, but it takes some practice. Frankly, other than observational studies comparing one country’s food consumption against another’s, it’s hard to find a reason to recommend plant-based proteins over high-quality animal proteins.

For now, we just want to point out that the quality of proteins, and the amount per serving, in vegetable foods and animal foods is dramatically different. We recommend  all for eating plenty of vegetables and fruit each day, but it’s for the vitamins, minerals, fiber and phytonutrients, not for the protein they contain.



Eggs Are a Part of Healthy Diet


Eggs Are a Part of Healthy Diet

Are you still eating carb-heavy, nutrient-light, appetite-stimulating cereal for breakfast? Do you still think eggs are less healthy? Though there is still a strong perception that eggs are bad for the heart and waistline, there is plenty of evidence to show it just isn’t true. A new study from The University of Alberta provides more reason to include eggs as part of a high-quality nutrition plan.

As explained in Medical News Today, researchers found egg yolks to be high in nutrients containing antioxidant properties. They found the tyrosine and tryptophan, the amino acids in egg yolks, to be a great way to boost our bodies’ antioxidants. As the researchers explained, two raw yolks had twice the antioxidant properties of an apple. Though half their antioxidant properties are destroyed through cooking, eggs still provide substantial antioxidant support. The same researchers in a previous study found certain components of eggs acted to lower blood pressure, as well.

Eggs also offer high protein content, as well as iron, zinc, folate, vitamins A, B, D and E,  choline, lutein, and zeaxanthin — nutrients that benefit your immune system, heart and eye health — even lower your risk of cancer.

Eggs and Heart Disease- Don’t eggs increase the risk of heart disease? This theory came from the idea that eating saturated fat and dietary cholesterol increases the risk of atherosclerosis and other heart diseases. Research over the last decade confirms that dietary cholesterol appears to have little, if any effect on blood cholesterol, and there’s no evidence to show saturated fat consumption increases the risk of heart disease, so avoiding eggs for this reason doesn’t make much sense.

Eggs and Weight Gain- Okay, so eggs don’t cause health problems, but they still have plenty of fat in the yolk, so you should still concern yourself with the stuff in the middle, right? Well, if you throw out the yolk, you discard the most nutritious part of the egg. And you still might do it, if you think a low-fat diet is the answer to sustained weight loss. However, we’ve discussed the flaws of a low-fat diet for long-term weigh loss in many articles. Truth be told, eating the yolk along with the white will likely reduce cravings for other food later in the day.

Summary: There is an endless variety of ways to make eggs and they’re economical. Try starting your day with a few eggs and you’ll likely notice a significant difference in how you feel, in terms of energy and satiety —and your weight may even come down a bit.



Are Boiled eggs more healthy than Omelette?


Love eggs? Does it matter if it is boiled egg, fried egg or Omelette? Truth is it does matter. The love of eating eggs is part of our staple diet and may have a lasting good or bad effect depending on our eating pattern.

While we choose egg as a main source of our nutrients, it is even more important to choose how we consume eggs. Most popular egg consumption pattern in India is hard boiled eggs and omelettes. Let us check on the facts about eggs.  How many calories does an boiled egg and egg omelette have it? Are Boiled eggs more healthy than Omelette? Is there a difference in egg nutrition between Omelette and boiled eggs.

Without much of logic and analysis, between boiled eggs and omelette both of them are the same. The difference starts only by the cooking procedure. Nutrients of both type of eggs are almost same and does not change much depending on how it is used. But cooking methods makes a big impact on the fat, calorie and other nutrients.

Boiled eggs are straight forward and does not have added calories or fat from cheese or other ingredient while cooking. Hard boiled eggs are simply eggs boiled in water with its shells. So between the option given, Hard boiled eggs are a good choice from health perspective.

How Healthy Is Omelette

How healthy is Omelette depends on how we cook them. The health factors of omelette depends on the ingredients added while preparing the dish. If we just add veggies it adds the nutrition and makes it more healthier than plain boiled eggs. On contrary if we add it with more oil, cheese and unhealthy fat then your delicious omelette is your worst enemy for your body.

Macronutrients – Each large hard-boiled egg provides 78 calories, 6.3 grams of protein, 0.6 gram of carbohydrates and 5.3 grams of fat, including 1.6 grams of saturated fat. Fry that egg and you’ll increase the calories to 90 and the fat to 6.8 grams, including 2 grams of saturated fat, or 10 percent of the daily value for both fat and saturated fat.

Vitamins- Eat a large boiled egg and you’ll be getting 15 percent of the DV for riboflavin, 10 percent of the DV for vitamin B-12 and 11 percent of the DV for vitamin D. Fried eggs have a similar vitamin content, although the amounts are slightly less. Riboflavin helps produce red blood cells and turn carbohydrates into energy. You need vitamin B-12 for nervous system and brain function and vitamin D plays a role in immune function and calcium absorption.

Minerals- Fried eggs have a slightly higher mineral content than hard-boiled eggs. However, the only mineral they contain in significant amounts is phosphorus, with each large fried egg providing 10 percent of the DV. Hard-boiled eggs provide about 9 percent of the DV for this mineral. Phosphorus is essential for strong bones, producing DNA and kidney function.

Considerations- Oiled and fried eggs are similar in nutrition, with small differences due to the cooking method and the addition of oil to the fried egg. You can improve the nutrition of your eggs, regardless of your cooking method. While in healthy individuals moderate egg consumption doesn’t necessarily increase heart disease risk, it does appear to affect the risk for mortality more in people with diabetes.

Eggs and Cholesterol. How Many Eggs Can You Safely Eat?


Eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet. However, eggs have gotten a bad reputation because the yolks are high in cholesterol. In fact, a single medium sized egg contains 186 mg of cholesterol, which is 62% of the recommended daily intake. People believe that if you eat cholesterol, that it would raise cholesterol in the blood and contribute to heart disease.

But it turns out that it isn’t that simple. The more you eat of cholesterol, the less your body produces instead. Let us explain how that works…

How Your Body Regulates Cholesterol Levels

Cholesterol is often seen as a negative word. When we hear it, we automatically start thinking of statin medication, heart attacks and early death. But the truth is that cholesterol is a very important part of the body. It is a structural molecule that is an essential part of every single cell membrane. It is also used to make steroid hormones like testosterone, estrogen and cortisol. Without cholesterol, we wouldn’t even exist.

Given how incredibly important cholesterol is, the body has evolved elaborate ways to ensure that we always have enough of it available. Because getting cholesterol from the diet isn’t always an option, the liver actually produces cholesterol. But when we eat cholesterol rich foods, the liver starts producing less.

What Happens When People Eat Several Whole Eggs Per Day?

For many decades, people have been advised to limit their consumption of eggs, or at least egg yolks (the white is mostly protein and is low in cholesterol). Common recommendations include a maximum of 2-6 yolks per week. However, there really isn’t much scientific support for these limitations.

Eggs and Heart Disease

Don’t eggs increase the risk of heart disease? This theory came from the idea that eating saturated fat and dietary cholesterol increases the risk of atherosclerosis and other heart diseases. Research over the last decade confirms that dietary cholesterol appears to have little, if any effect on blood cholesterol, and there’s no evidence to show saturated fat consumption increases the risk of heart disease, so avoiding eggs for this reason doesn’t make much sense.


The liver produces large amounts of cholesterol. When we eat a lot of eggs (high in cholesterol), the liver produces less instead. Many observational studies show that people who eat eggs don’t have an increased risk of heart disease, but some of the studies do show an increased risk in diabetics.

What’s So Healthy About Eggs?

7Look up the nutrition facts for egg yolks, and you will find, it reads more like a multi-vitamin than a food that has been demonized due to its saturated fat content. Just 3 egg yolks, not including the whites, provides over 50% of your daily need for Vitamin D and Selenium, over 40% of Vitamin B12, over 25% of Vitamin B5 and Phosphorous, and over 15% of Iron, Folate, Vitamin A, Vitamin B6, and Vitamin B2. These same three egg yolks also provides 8 grams of protein and 7% of your daily omega 3 fats. Egg yolks also contain the carotenoids, lutein and zeaxanthin, which are antioxidants believed to help prevent against degeneration and chronic disease.

Eggs Have Plenty of  Health Benefits

Let’s not forget that eggs are about more than just cholesterol… they’re also loaded with nutrients and have various other impressive benefits:

    • They’re high in lutein and zeaxanthin, antioxidants that reduce your risk of eye diseases like macular degeneration and cataracts.
    • They’re very high in choline, a brain nutrient that over 90% of people are lacking in.
    • They’re high in quality animal protein, which has many benefits – including increased muscle mass and better bone health.
    • Studies show that eggs keep you fuller for longer, reduces appetite and help you lose fat.

Eggs also taste amazing and are incredibly easy to prepare.

So even if eggs were to have mild adverse effects on blood cholesterol (which they don’t), the benefits of consuming them would still far outweigh the negatives.


Having eggs for breakfast is good for losing weight



According to a study, having eggs for breakfast is good for losing weight, as it keeps people satiated for a longer time. We eggsplores…

Barring vegetarians, who doesn’t love having eggs for breakfast? Whether they’re sunny side-up, scrambled, in the form of omelette or our good ol’ anda bhurji. Some of us egg lovers even revelled in the slogan ‘Sunday ho ya Monday, roz khao ande’. However, in recent times, eggs have gained notoriety owing to their cholesterol content. As a result, health-conscious people, especially celebs, only consume egg whites, and some have even gone to the extent of banishing eggs completely. But now, a study conducted in the UK says eggs are the best way to cut the flab. That’s because eggs can keep people fuller for a longer duration of time, compared to the other food options consumed for breakfast. And this, in turn, helps people who are desperate to munch on snacks such as biscuits, chips and other junk food. We asked experts in the city, if the study holds true.

Keeps you fuller
Anything that contains high protein gives a stomach-filling effect. Eating protein-rich eggs for breakfast reduces hunger and decreases calorie consumption throughout the day. A study has claimed that the leucine that is found in eggs plays a unique role in the regulation of muscle protein synthesis and Insulin signalling. So, the introduction of food which is rich in protein — for example, eggs — in the diet, while reducing the consumption of complex carbohydrates in the body, also helps to burn the body fat. This, in turn, helps in controlling your hunger and food cravings, explains consulting dietician Dr Sunita Dube. Egg whites, she says, are low in calories and helps in losing weight.
Agrees consultant nutritionist Niti Desai. She says eggs contain protein and fat, which give the feeling of a full stomach for a much longer time. Also, eggs have definite calories — so, the caloric intake at breakfast is more or less fixed and restricted. On the other hand, the quantity of other popular breakfast options such as upma/poha can range from half katori to two katoris. All these factors make eggs an excellent breakfast option.

What about cholesterol?
Health consultant Dr Parul R. Sheth says, “An egg contains about 212 mg of cholesterol, all of which is present in the yolk. And the recommended amount of cholesterol is about 300 mg per day. It is true, therefore, that eating too many eggs can increase your cholesterol level. But studies have pointed out that eating four or fewer egg yolks each week does not increase your risk of heart disease.” She adds, “To be on the safer side, you can eat only the egg whites; these have no cholesterol.”

Don’t avoid them completely
Egg yolks contain a hefty dose of cholesterol compared to egg whites. However, they are also a source of unsaturated fat and protein, as well as vitamins and minerals. And so, you should not avoid them completely. Consume them occasionally because they also contain food sources of natural vitamin D. Egg yolks contain 23 per cent of your daily choline recommendations and meets 6 per cent of your daily folate needs. Half of the protein found in egg yolks have an orange colour because of plant pigments Lutein and Zeaxanthin. Both these pigments support eye and muscle health and helps in easy absorption, opines Dr Dube.

How much to have?
Dr Sheth says, “You can eat as many egg whites as you wish since they contain almost no fat and cholesterol. Boiled, scrambled, poached or omelettes — without butter — in moderation (one egg with yolk per day) is fine.” Your age, sex, body weight, and level of physical activity determine your calorie intake. A normal adult with a sedentary lifestyle should not consume more than four to five eggs a week, advises Dr Dube.

The Evolutionary Diet for Carnivores

What we want for our dogs is a diet and an environment that maximizes health. That means a Biologically Appropriate Diet rather than a natural diet. The philosophy behind using Biologically Appropriate is that the diet a dog or cat evolved to eat – over many millions of years of evolution – is the best way to feed it. A biologically appropriate diet for a dog is one that consists of whole foods similar to those eaten by the dogs’ wild ancestors. The food fed must contain the same balance and type of ingredients as consumed by those wild ancestors. This food will include such things as muscle meat, bone, fat and vegetable materials and any other “foods” that will mimic what those wild ancestors ate.

Dogs evolved as hunters and, just like their wild cousins, their teeth, jaws and digestive system are all adapted for meat concentrated diets that are rich in fresh meats and meat diversity. With short digestive tracts and gastrointestinal systems, dogs and cats are adapted to metabolize animal flesh and fat, not grains and carbohydrates. Drools Chicken & Egg diet mirrors the same balance and consist of variety of ingredients including cage free real chicken, egg, fresh vegetables, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

Drools chicken and egg is specially formulated for growing puppies and adults. It contains real chicken as number 1 ingredient to build and maintain lean muscle mass for top body condition. With only the finest ingredients it contains what your dog needs to stay happy and healthy. A great combination of ingredients, vitamins, minerals and nutrition for everything from strong bones to optimal digestion. Drools chicken and egg is developed to help your dog live a long and healthy life. Omega 6 and 3 fatty acids to help your dog have healthy skin and beautiful coat. Chicken, whole dried eggs, corn, rice, wheat, corn gluten meal, fish oil, soya refined, corn oil, lecithin, essential amino acid, minerals, vitamins, salt and antioxidants.
