Contrary to what many people believe, eggs contain a lot more than just proteins and fat. Here is a list of all the nutrients that an egg contains:
- Proteins (in a generous amount and in its purest form)
- Plenty of vitamins (A, B1, B2, B6, B12, D, E, and K)
- Fats (saturated and unsaturated)
- Essential minerals such as calcium, iron, zinc, selenium, magnesium, sodium, potassium, copper, and phosphorus.
|Unsaturated Fat||2.5 g|
|Vitamin A||290 IU|
|Vitamin B6||0.1 mg|
|Vitamin B12||0.6 mcg|
|Vitamin E||0.5 mg|
|Vitamin K||0.1 mcg|

76 calories is what a whole hard-boiled egg contains. An egg white contains a significantly less number of calories as compared to a whole egg. The following table should give a better idea (Please note: all the following numbers are for a single large egg).

Including them as a part of the diet, might prove beneficial. Also, remember that eggs (when eaten in moderation or by skipping the yolk) are an excellent food in terms of all-round nutrition.
