A bowl of eggs(BlackDoctor.org) — Just about any “bad” food can be part of your weight loss plan if you stick to small enough portions. In fact, dietitians advise against banning your favorite treats. Depriving yourself of the foods you crave could set you up for failure. A better strategy is to set limits on quantity.

When it comes to healthy eating, few foods have sparked as much debate as eggs.
