How Many Calories In A Fried Egg?

Fried Eggs are not considered to be a diet food.  There can be a lot of calories, fat and cholesterol found in fried eggs.  But, how many calories are in a fried egg and can they be enjoyed even when trying to cut back?

In one fried egg (medium sized) there are about 79 calories.
One large fried egg contains about 95 calories.
That doesn't seem like a lot of calories, but most eat more than one at a time.
Also, the calories rack up when you prepare your fried egg in butter or oil.
Extra butter can contribute to another 100 calories. Once you get around to eating your single serving of fried eggs there may be as much as 195-220 calories.  That is a lot of calories in one fried egg.

If you are trying to cut back on your calories and want to reduce the number you consume, cutting back on food is usually helpful.  This means that instead of eating two or three fried eggs, you should consume just one. Also, eliminate the butter or grease and try frying your egg with a tablespoon of water on a no-stick pan.  You will eliminate a lot of extra calories this way.

Now you know how many calories are in a fried egg and can be more informed in your preparation.
