Hard Boiled Eggs – Aren’t They Just Perfect?

by Kimberly Edwards on July 16, 2008

I wanted to share a small tip with you today!

I love Boiled Eggs SteinIf you are looking for a perfect diet food to add to your fat loss plan, then consider hard boiled eggs. They are high in protein, they have some of the best type (form) of protein because it is easily absorbed and used, low in calories, and low in fat.


If you eat eggs with no yolk, they only have 17 calories, .1g of fat, and 3.6 grams of protein and only .2g of carbohydrates.

A regular hard boiled egg has 79 calories, 7 grams of protein, and 4.5 grams of fat.

There are two other main benefits of eating a hard boiled egg:

1. It takes approximately 24 calories just to digest a hard boiled egg leaving you with only 56 or so calories.

2. Hard boiled eggs are “boiled” and not cooked in other oils or butter that would increase the total calories for the meal and they cook in minutes.

I love soft boiled egg best. After the water boils, put the eggs in and let them boil for approx 5 minutes, then take them out. Run them under cold water to make them easier to peel. If you have trouble peeling, then just use a spoon to eat the egg out of the shell.

Awesome! I love hard boiled eggs…Just watch out to not eat too many. There are cholesterol concerns if you ingest too many egg yolks – hard boiled or not…


I hope you find this Natural Weight Loss Tip helpful from Natural Weight Loss Tip! Until next time…

Boil Them Eggs,

Kimberly Edwards :)

P.S. I just ate 2 of them myself… :)

Yeah, I love eggs and so does Kimberly. They are great for the negative calorie diet. Takes more to digest them.

I told Kim about your comment, she runs a Cooking Blog also (and she’s an absolutely lovely cook) so I am sure that she will reply to your comment with a recipe or two. lol. She has been adding more healthy stuff to her cooking blog as of late.

Heather, thanks for commenting, and I hope to see you around more.

A healthy diet will always be composed of high fiber frutis and veggies, low sugar, low carb and rich in protein.-’,

Hmm, negative calorie foods are just playing with math. Your body’s metabolism is much more complex than the negative calorie food diets make it seem. If a food takes more energy to digest it than it contains, your body will probably rob lean tissue instead of stored fat to have the energy needed to finish that food off. It’s a lose-lose situation in the long run. And with the lack of proper nutritional balance in these negative diets you will certainly do more harm than good over the long run. Eating low calorie for weight loss is more than workable, but you must work hard to balance your food nutrition against calories. There is no magic food that just let’s you lose weight without harm. I have been eating low calorie for a while now and I have prepared a tuna salad recipe that comes in at 170 calories for a very decent portion size that is not lacking in the necessary carbs, proteins and fats. I did this for low calorie eating and it doesn’t yield negative calories because it is a healthy positive combination. Always do your research and consult a doctor or nutritionist before trying to change you eating habits so drastically.

@John: Good points. To lose weight it still comes down to this… if you burn more calories than you consume you will lose weight. And yes you are right, there are a lot of other factors to consider like: nutrition, health, body composition & stuff like that. But if don’t create a calorie deficit you won’t lose weight anyhow. I love the tuna salad idea… perfect. One side note: you don’t need to do anything drastic… trying to find balance in everything is key. If you eat negative cal foods doesn’t mean that your whole diet needs to be negative calorie.

Kenney August 8, 2010 at 7:10 pm

@Hannah: Right on… so true. I agree completely. But low carb to an extent. If you are eating a balanced diet: 40-40-20, then you are still eating 40 percent carbs, but GOOD ones right. ;) thanks for commenting.

every woman is conscious about how much diet calories she takes, diet calories should be kept at a minimum :

all proteins (on average) take about 30% of their total amount of calories to digest
