Wow! Said to be the most complete food on the Planet. I venture to say it is, incontestably, the most perfect food humans have been devouring since the dawn of time. It has not faltered yet in its provision of vibrant and lustrous life to all that consumes it. It is a super-source food that blesses us with 70 hardy calories, 6 gms of protein (full spectrum 20 amino acids), 0.6 gms of carbohydrates and 222.2 gms of very, very valuable lipids! It is “incredible”, yet at the same time controversial. It’s been credited with giving us extraordinary strength and stamina, yet debilitating us with heart disease from high cholesterol. I am talking about the amazing and fabulous egg.
Vince and Ron touted the egg as the best thing to eat if you were trying to make gains in strength and muscle mass. They explained how the amino acids supplied us with nitrogen which maintained anabolism (muscle building) by up-ticking our metabolism via a positive nitrogen balance. However, if we did not eat enough protein (amino acids) this would disrupt the nitrogen balance and cause catabolism or muscle wasting. Of course, the finest sources of this protein was the egg (first) and milk (second).
I encourage you to consume at least a dozen eggs per week to stay optimally and supremely healthy, so swap out a carb and replace with an egg. Learn to cook your eggs in the most palatable way to increase compliance. Never overcook your eggs (heat denatures protein). Use unrefined salt on your eggs. Eat range-fed eggs. EAT THE WHOLE DAMN THING – never throw out the yoke. Fat and protein should be eaten together. Carbs and fiber should be eaten together. Try not to mix protein and carbs, i.e., bread and meat. Remember, an egg has to grow into a full chick with all the systems intact. For instance, it needs everything necessary to create the nervous, digestive and immune systems. For Nutritional ketosis, strength and fitness, weight control and keto-genesis, eggs are an absolute, unequivocal and unquestionable…MUST!!!
