Researchers say that eggs just might be the ideal breakfast food for weight loss.
A few recent studies found that people who eat eggs for breakfast can drop as much as 65% more weight over eight weeks. And another study suggests that eggs can stabilize blood sugar and suppress hunger, too.
Alyssa Pike, Manager of Nutrition Communications for the International Food Information Council, says that we should focus on high-protein and fibre foods for breakfast because they can help you feel full longer. She says a good example of this would be egg and avocado or egg on whole-wheat bread.
The feeling of fullness you get from a breakfast like that helps cut down on grazing during the day.

A woman near Dallas named Nicole Hornback was out watching a parade with her kids last month when her two-year-old son started choking. And she had no idea what to do.
She tried giving him the Heimlich. But she didn’t know how to do it on a little kid. So it didn’t work.
But luckily, a 17-year-old cheerleader named Tyra Winters happened to spot them from a parade float she was on. And she knew what to do, because she wants to be a pediatric surgeon someday and took CPR classes in eighth grade.
So she jumped off the float . . . grabbed the kid . . . tipped him forward on his stomach . . . hit him on the back a few times . . . and saved his life.
Once he was breathing again, she handed him back to his mom . . . ran off like it was no big deal . . . and jumped back on the float, so she didn’t miss her ride.
Nicole didn’t even get Tyra’s name. But she posted about it on Facebook. Then someone from Tyra’s school saw it. And Nicole recently met up with her to say thank you in person.

WHY MEN FIND IT HARD TO MAKE FRIENDS
Men have a harder time making friends than women do.
A recent poll from YouGov found 20 percent of men admitted to having no close friends and 32 percent claimed to have no one they counted as a best friend. Just 12 percent of women said they did not have close friends, and 24 percent said they did not have a best friend.
Part of the reason men are lonelier could be that they’re not as good as communicating as women are– particularly online. Dr. Diana Gall says, “Some research suggests that heavy reliance on online socializing may actually be a problem for men and contributing to the rise in loneliness.”
Other experts note that with increasing pressure at work and at home, men have a difficult time maintaining friendships, and even if they can maintain them, many male friendships center around competitiveness, and not emotional support.
Indiana Heist – 50,000 Apples
In Indiana thieves somehow managed to remove 50,000 apples from Williams Orchards without anyone noticing. Owner Jon Drummond stated that the apples had managed to vanish in a period of only a few days.
The fleeced area was located in the back of the 135-acre orchard, and had been bountiful last week. While out surveying their land, Drummond noticed over a full acre of trees were missing their fruit.
There weren’t any apples to be found on the ground of the crime scene, leading Drummond and investigators to believe that the thieves covered the area in tarps, violently shook the trees so the apples would fall off of them, then cinched up the tarps and made their getaway.
Additionally, 50,000 apples is a lot of apples, so how they managed to get away with this haul without anyone noticing is rather incredible. The local sheriff is currently on the lookout for suspects who may own a pickup truck or trailer, which shouldn’t be hard to find in that corner of Indiana.
