I’ll make this simple…if you want to lose weight , eat eggs! They will fuel your hard-earned muscle and keep you burning more calories all day long.


Some “egg-cellent” tips for you

  1. Eat the Yolks! – All the nutrients are there, including ones that help you keep muscle and burn fat.
  2. Stop Fearing Cholesterol – As many now know, eggs do not cause High Cholesterol…they actually reduce risk of heart attacks.
  3. Get Picky on your egg Choices. – Only buy Free Range, Cage Free and Omega 3 when you can. Don’t eat anything but the real thing: fresh, whole eggs from happy hens, eating bugs and grubs .. outside on green grass! Yes they’re more expensive, but YOU are WORTH IT!

2. GOOD SLEEP!

SLEEP MORE…It will promote and aid your efforts at weight loss and a leaner body!

Whether you’re tossing and turning all night, thinking of everything going on in your life or you are choosing to stay up till the wee hours of the night working or playing, you are missing out on one of the most powerful health and weight loss boosters around — SLEEP!

Here are 5 good reasons why you need to get a good night of shut-eye:

  1. Lack of sleep promotes weight gain – Lack of sleep wreaks havoc on your metabolism.
  2. Sleep promotes more FAT burned when trying to lose weight – If you are eating clean, exercising and trying to lose weight, lack of sleep can impede your efforts.
  3. Sleep regulates your hunger hormone – When you compromise on sleep, your body produces more ghrelin (the hormone that triggers hunger) and less leptin (the hormone that tells you to STOP eating).
  4. Lack of sleep depletes your body of vitamins and minerals – Vitamin C deficiency may also be correlated with weight gain. And, guess what? Sleep deprivation sucks you dry of vitamin C — along with other precious minerals, such as zinc — further compromising your immune system and contributing to weight gain.
  5. Lack of sleep increases risk of heart disease, diabetes and cancer Lack of sleep can increase your risk of heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. If we’re not sleeping well, melatonin production is reduced, increasing the potential risk of estrogen-related cancers.
