Nutrition Tips: Eggs, the Best Food for Faster Results?
The equation for success seems simple. Hard work and time in the gym + Healthy diet
= Fast, long lasting results. Then why
are so many of us struggling? If you
aren’t eating eggs, you should be. And
not just the whites. You need the WHOLE egg, especially the yolk.
1. We need more fat in our diets
We have been taught incorrectly for decades that “healthy
eating” revolves around a diet high in sugar, and low in fat. In 1967, the heads of the Sugar Industry used
a trade group called the Sugar Research
Foundation to pay three Harvard scientist the equivalent of $50,000.00 to “mislead”
the American Public into thinking fat was bad, and sugar (carbohydrates) was
good. The result? A food Pyramid that taught us to incorrectly eat high amounts of
carbohydrates while actively eliminating any kind of fat from our diets. If you want to check out the fake study, click here.
By eating more eggs, you are replacing your insulin spiking carbohydrate
calories with muscle and mind building fat. Most scientist agree that there was a sudden impact in brain mass and
thinking ability when fat was introduced to our ancestors. 80% of the brain is made from fat. The number is even higher in children, around 90%. So not only are you feeding your brain, you
are allowing your body to get rid of the excess fat hanging around your
2. Eggs have high amounts of choline. Choline improves strength and performance.
You get 110-150mg of Choline from one WHOLE egg. Choline is essential to make acetylcholine, a
neurotransmitter responsible for memory, recall, focus, and muscle strength. Choline is routinely used in supplements for
focus. However, it has been proven that
Choline does more than just help you focus. It helps you get stronger! There has even been a correlation to “gifted” athletes and
high levels of acetylcholine.
the amount of Growth Hormone your body secrets after exercise. Researchers found that post exercise
Growth Hormone peaked 44 times higher when supplementing with Choline. Increased Growth Hormone response from
exercise leads to faster recovery, and increases in strength and lean muscle
mass. Bottom line, eat eggs if you want
to get stronger, and perform better.
3. Eggs work with ANY diet
Keto, South Beach, Palo, IF. They all have one thing in common. When you go out to eat, it’s almost impossible
to not slip on your diet. And worse, the
next day you feel like “crap.” You
should have ordered an omelet.
Because eggs don’t contain carbohydrates, you can eat them
with ANY high protein/ low carb diet. Heck, you can even eat them on a high carb, bulking diet. You can eat them on a boat. You can eat them with a goat. You can even eat them on train, or in the
rain. Because eggs are so versatile, you
can eat them anywhere, Sam I am.
If you are on the fence about eggs, you shouldn’t be. Also, you NEED the yolk. It is the best part of the egg. It contains all the vital nutrients necessary
to make sure your body and mind will continue to perform at its peak for years
to come. If you already eat them,
hopefully you now have the info to throw egg on someone else’s face.
