I love eggs in the morning but they are a lot of calories first thing in a day so I separate them and only cook the whites because most of the calories are in the yolk

    I usually have eggs for breakfast on the weekend because of time and I have a portable breakfast I bring to work. I don't find that an egg has that many calories at all. It also contains a lot of nutrients. Yolk and white.

    A large egg is only 70 calories, so that's not a lot of calories for breakfast. Most breads and English muffins are a lot more than that, and don't contain the nutrients and protein that an egg has.

It's actually a good idea to start off your day with a protein-filled breakfast so you won't be hungry until lunchtime. If I eat a carb-based breakfast, I'm hungry all day - regardless of what I eat, but if I eat protein for breakfast, I have much better control over my eating for the rest of the day.
