Eat eggs to for fat loss muscle and brain health

3 reasons to eat more eggs!

Here’s why a breakfast that includes eggs is the smart way to start your day

There’s a very good reason why eggs feature so prominently in the breakfast dishes featured in all the New Body Plan fat-loss meal planners  – they’re one of the best sources of protein, fats, and a range of essential minerals and nutrients, including vitamin D, which is found in only a few foods.

Here’s three reasons why you should start your day with a couple of eggs and – no matter what anyone else tells you – don’t throw out the yolk and only eat the white: the yolk contains almost as much protein as the white, and most of the vitamins and minerals.

Get a lift off!
An egg has 10% of your recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin D, an essential nutrient that many people, especially in northern and western Europe, are lacking because of a lack of regular direct sunlight. Vitamin D is involved in hundreds of biological functions, including a big role in optimal sexual health and function, and a study in Hormone And Metabolic Research found that men with adequate vitamin D levels had 25% more T than those with a deficiency. As well as a higher sex drive, that means more muscle and less body fat. You can read more about vitamin D, including our new Vit-3D supplement, here.

Think quicker and clearer!
One egg contains 35% of your RDI of the nutrient choline, which is needed to produce neurotransmitters linked to heightened intelligence, memory and mood. Choline is also involved in the prevention of fatty liver disease, which is a build-up of fat in the organ that can be caused by excess alcohol consumption.

Shift a hangover!
Too many last night? Eggs will make the morning after easier because they contain the amino acid cysteine, which helps metabolise the hangover-causing compound acetaldehyde, which your body creates by breaking down alcohol. Cysteine also helps make glutathione, an antioxidant that neutralises cell-damaging free radicals, while the fats found in eggs will satisfy junk food cravings without excess calories.
