Did it come before the chicken?

Ok sorry. Here's the question:

Anyone who devours around 5-7 eggs every morning (whites of course), knows that hunger pangs are significantly reduced throughout the rest of the day. I can't say the same for the other foods I'd have for breakfast, even if they are the more or less the same in protein/nutritional content.

Does anyone know why Eggs cause this? Is it because they take long to digest? Are they absorbed slower?

The eternal student,

Egg whites are actually quicker than most, I believe.

Most breakfasts are focussed around carbs.

Carbs make most people hungry whereas protein and especially fat are very satiating.

Yea I have asked a similar question on here. It bugs me cuz eggs are so good for ya and paked with nutrients, but they make you want to eat less. BAD:mad: :mad: I eat em' anyway and just enjoy my other meals slightly less. I believe it has been attributed to the high fat content.

Actually I should rephrase my statement, After eating eggs, I stay in that "unhungry" state probably until mid-afternoon then I get ravenous again but its still annoying.

I say drink a nice big shake as your second meal.. You can take those down no matter how much you've already eaten. Then, by lunch you will be hungry again.
Sorry I cant answer your original question Warrior.
