How many eggs should you eat?

Whereas I thought this was quite interesting and funny, Mrs Fruci didn’t really agree. We were eating breakfast not too long ago at an all you can eat buffet and I came back with nearly every type of egg on my plate….

​​​​Boiled, omelette, scrambled, poached, and fried (they didn’t do chocolate eggs)…


Now, all the nutrition and fitness principles we use in our Fit For Life Body Transformation Programme are – usually – pretty well backed up by science

But – I’ll admit – sometimes I see things that can’t really be explained by science…yet! This could through exploring food intolerances / reactions and / or your beliefs that trigger a reaction to comfort eat… 

However, one thing I get a lot is this:

“I was no longer starving mid morning and craving a sugar hit”

And nearly every time I hear this from members? I check their food plans and they decided to eat eggs for breakfast…

Strange, right?

Or at least it was…until I saw several studies recently conclude this:

* An egg based breakfast reduced peoples food intake for 24 hours even though they weren’t told to

* An egg based breakfast as part of a controlled diet showed up to 65% greater weight loss over eight weeks, compared to other types of breakfast foods 

* E
ggs are a great source of protein which is important for muscle tone and healthy ageing. ​

But what about cholesterol?

Studies have found no negative impact on cholesterol when eating 6 eggs per day (no studies have been done in more than this, as far as I know). Now, if you are a hyper-responder to cholesterol and this is coupled with a poor diet, then you may see an increased risk!

Maybe there’s something to it? Maybe not?

We’re all different. But you don’t know if you don’t try and figure out what works for YOU. You can read all of the information in the world.

​​But unless you DO something, you might as well not know it!​​
