Lifewatch: Eggs

WILMINGTON -- There are warnings that link eating too many eggs and raising cholesterol, but they could also bring a healthy benefit to your breakfast.

For years, experts thought eggs raised bad cholesterol in the body.  Now, new research shows they actually bump up good cholesterol.

In the study, volunteers who snacked on eggs experienced an increase in muscle mass.

Eggs also contain a good balance of protein and fat to help keep you feeling full.

Previous studies have shown people who eat eggs for breakfast tend to consume fewer calories throughout the day.

Just make sure the way you prepare your eggs doesn't turn them into an unhealthy choice.

The healthiest ways to prepare eggs are hard boiled with light salt or scrambled with little or no oil.
