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.

I HAVE SOME BIG NEWS TO SHARE!

As of today, I’m opening up the doors to my Inner Circle, my 12 month private client mastermind.

This is THE most badass high level mastermind in the world for women who want it all – and are prepared to do what it takes to get it! Really what we’re talking about is being prepared to be the PERSON.

And that’s what I do. I help you remember ALL that you were, and then become it. ALL Of it.

This is my highest level private mentoring circle. The exact place where I have personally mentored dozens of this industry’s most elite female entrepreneurs to break income barriers ranging from 10k months to multiple 7 FIGURE months, and everything in between. But more importantly than that – to become who and what they always were.

But know that this is not only (obviously) not just for the masses, this is also not just for someone who can afford to invest in a high level private coach. Being willing to throw money down is something which has absolutely zero correlation to being somebody who has what it takes to TRULY go next level as a leader.

If anything, in this industry, investing in a high level coach such as myself, is a rite of passage which veers just a little too much on the side of ‘trend’. It’s become something which ‘everybody does’, almost as a way of proving they play business and life a certain way.

Maybe even of trying to prove it to themselves.

Here is the reality which those who I am truly here to personally mentor and lead KNOW, the reality which my clients and all women like me as well as of course me personally have ALWAYS known:

We are VERY VERY DIFFERENT.

We are simply, smarter, faster, and have more presence. We can do more in our minds before breakfast than what most people can do in a freakin’ WEEK, a month, a year.

We are not basic ass coaches trying to heave ho our way up a few extra thou a month.

We are the ones who have ALWAYS known we are 1% within the 1% within the 1% in terms of how we think, create, operate, how and WHAT we are tapped in too.

This is not arrogance, this is fact.

And there has NEVER been any question but that we will go all the way.

My clients are high level badasses who do the work, who have a proven track record BEFORE coming to me, and a BEING-ness which unquestionably separates them from the rest. They don’t come to me to save them or lean down and hold my hand out so they can clamber up. They come because they are, quite simply, ready to go to the next level, already absolutely on their WAY there, and see in me something which they recognise because it is in them.

That ‘can’t stop won’t stop’ fire, and a level of ‘unapologeticness’ which, when truly understood and applied, can literally be the difference between 5-figure or low 6-figure and 7 or multi-7-figure entrepreneur.

So if you know who you are and it is THAT –

And you feel certain that you are ALREADY well on your way to to precisely where you’re meant to be, but that being in MY energy could help you to drop in and get there even faster, and that with a couple of simple tweaks your current revenue could be doubling, tripling, heck QUADRUPLING and beyond in months, as it has done with numerous of my clients previously, well then –

PM me here http://m.me/katrinaruthofficial and we’ll see if it’s a fit. I’m excited to talk to you, and maybe – do biz and life with you.
