Who Else Wants To Lose Weight From Eating More Eggs?

raw-eggs

A 2008 study in the International Journal of Obesity has put cooked-breaky-lovers guilty fears to rest. Well, at least part of those fears.

Hold the hash browns but bring on the scrambled eggs ‘cause this latest research is showing categorically that eating a googly or two for breaky will enhance your weight loss by as much as 65%.

The objective of the study was to test whether an egg breakfast, in contrast to a typical bread-based breakfast such as a bagel, when matched for energy density and total energy, would enhance weight loss in overweight and obese participants.

Participants (both male and female, and aged between 25-60 years) were assigned to 2-egg or bagel breakies for a minimum of 5 days per week over an 8-week period.

The Results Are In And It’s Not Looking Good For Grains

Egg-eaters in comparison to the bread brigade showed a 61% greater reduction in BMI (a height to weight measurement tool), a 65% greater weight loss, a 34% greater decrease in waist circumference, and a 16% greater reduction in percentage of body fat. Furthermore, total cholesterol (both the good and the bad kinds) and triglycerides (dangerous fat in your bloodstream) remained unvaried between the two groups.

Why Eggs Assist In Permanent Weight Loss

According to the study authors it’s pretty simple:

“Compared to a calorie-equal bagel breakfast of equal weight, an egg breakfast had a greater satiating effect, which translated into a lower caloric intake at lunch. The resulting decrease in energy consumption lasted for at least 24h after the egg breakfast”

The Catch

If you spend even a little time reading online you’ll know that studies and research showing benefits of one eating method over another abound anywhere you can find written word. And if you don’t read the fine print carefully it’s easy to focus on the attention-grabbing outcomes and miss the finer details.

The need-to-know extras for the egg-breakfast vs bagel-breakfast study are reduced to one small but crucial point, which is this –

What I didn’t yet mention is that both egg and bagel eaters were split into a further 2 groups. One group was given no advice or encouragement to watch what they ate aside from their assigned breaky, while the other group was paying attention to their total food intake. Regardless of whether eating eggs or bagels, those who paid the remainder of their food choices no attention did NOT lose any weight. To put it another way –  successful weight loss was noted only in the group of egg-eaters who were careful with their overall food intake as opposed to freely stuffed themselves all day long.

How To Make This Work For You

An animal protein-based breakfast of any kind is irrefutably the ideal way to begin your day. Countless studies and practical experience will demonstrate increased energy and satiety from such a meal. But it sure won’t be enough to ensure weight loss results if you leave the morning table and munch your way through the rest of the day with little or no regard for protein intake.

Our ever-expanding collective waist is the result of an increasing trend toward carbohydrate-dominant diets. And not necessarily the (supposedly) good carbs. Sadly convenience foods, take-away, bakery goods, confectionary and savory treats, low-fat pastries or muffins, so-called energy meals based on vast quantities of pasta or rice, not to mention just about any item from a juice bar or beverage vending machine, are no-longer the rare exceptions in our diets but are the very foundation of our so-called nutrition. We’re awake up to 20 hours each day, often working for at least 10, and try to exercise with decent intensity at least 3 or 4 days each week. We’re plagued by stress, annoyances, irritation, and exhaustion. We take on more than our bodies were ever designed to mentally handle and we beat ourselves up when we don’t manage to get it all done.

And somehow we manage to convince ourselves that processed grains, trans fats, stimulants and sugars are the key to repairing all this damage and getting in shape? Maybe you can’t control each of the stressors and responsibilties I just listed but you sure can give yourself a fighting chance by eating right. You’ve heard it before and I’ll say it again – breakfast sets the foundation for the rest of the day and without a good ‘un you’ll be on a sure-fire path to fatigue and fat gain.

I hope this article serves as a slightly-more-than-gentle prod to get you thinking about what goes into your mouth, but I know that changing things overnight is not feasible for many people. My suggestion is to spend a week focussing on breakfast, add lunches the next week, dinners the next, and finally snacks.

Day 1) Trust

Day 2) Certainty

Day 3) Self-Belief

Day 4) Empire Creation

Day 5) Your Deepest Message

Day 6) Following Soul Guidance in All Areas

Day 7) Faith vs Fear

Day 8) Accessing Flow, and Superflow

Day 9) Expanding Time

Day 10) Expanding Money

Every day will be a LIVE soul led transmission.

This will take place on Facebook video, held at a variety of times in order to account for varying time zones, and scheduled only once we have begun. Our daily soul transmissions will be guided from MY higher self and directed from and for YOURS, to help you find and FOLLOW the messages within. The messages of your spirit, your consciousness, of the who you’ve always been and yet have managed quite well to cover up a lot of the time.

This is about stripping away –

And getting back to the CORE.

We’ll dive day by day into the above mentioned areas –

And you’ll receive all content and bonuses to keep for life.

There will be daily spirit prompts which you’ll receive after each training.

And plenty of time opportunity connect with me throughout, receive transmissions direct to YOUR questions, and absorb more even than what comes through on the trainings, via the energy we’ll create in this collective!

It’s very rare for me to know in advance exactly what is coming through day to day.

I certainly don’t have the details of each day’s content. But I know that these areas have been on my heart to talk about, in particular around belief, around certainty, around living from FAITH.

We know that exactly what is meant to come through for you WILL, and then some. And that if you intend and allow for it to, it will change, most likely before we even begin, due to your energetic commitment, the direction of your LIFE!

Meaning: direct it back to absolute soul alignment.

*** NEVER Seen Before Bonus! ***

As part of this, I’ve been guided to offer a NEVER before seen bonus … one I feel super vulnerable about sharing!

It’s the exact journaling I did to allow the download of THIS offer through. How I allowed the idea to bubble up. You’ll see my doubt, uncertainty, annoyance. You’ll see what I discarded. How I went through the layers. And how I KNEW, this was the one.

I’ll ALSO add in copies (screenshots) of my conversation with my COO Ash, where I was talking through the idea and allowing it to come to life.

I want to show you the exact Idea to Launch process!

This bonus alone is EASILY worth the cost of this program, particularly when you hear the mindset side of it, in terms of STAYING THE COURSE and refusing to back away from my self until the idea showed up!

I refuse not to create!!

AND, when you register for EXPANSION today (and how could you not?!) you’ll also receive early access to the Pre-Work. This is ALSO never seen before, and brand new just for you – and it’s a guided meditation on remembrance, to help you connect back to deepest self and the most certain truth of your destiny, before we even begin.

Perfect priming, for when we expand RAPIDLY into all that is coming through in this work!

Of course I could now go on and on here, about what I could or should have charged for this, and what it’s actually going to be …

Or about all my accomplishments on line and off, with money, with purpose, with passion, with flow …

I think you know all this anyway. Even if you just me! Your soul feels what matters. And that’s ALL that matters.

But I will say this:

You’ve always known it’s supposed to be about ALL that is inside of you. That it’s meant to COME from a place of purpose, passion, and SUPER super flow. And that if you just.freaking.trusted, and showed up FULLY from that place, you’d be living in a different reality already.

THE ONE INSIDE OF YOU.

If that’s true for you right now, then LET’S GO CREATE THAT REALITY.

Right now
