Dr. Oz mentioned egg whites and hot sauce for breakfast. I thought, "Gross!" but a few months later I tried it because I needed something to jump start my weightloss after a plateau.
Dr. Ann Louise Gittleman who wrote "The Fat Flush Plan" allows people to eat the whole egg. I will sometimes have a whole egg, too, with the egg whites. She says, "Harvard medical school sanctions up to seven eggs per week for optimal health."
This helped me bump my metabolism and decrease cravings. I started losing weight again!
