Because of that, recent studies have shown choline, which is found in large amounts in egg yolks, to play a role in weight loss. A study published in the Journal of the American College of Nutrition found an egg breakfast induced greater satiety and significantly reduced short-term food intake compared to a calorically equivalent bagel breakfast.
