Bodybuilding and Eggs

The Incredible Edible Egg
By Dwayne Hines II

For the past few decades the egg has gotten a bad rap.  Doctors would 
advise their patients to avoid eggs like the plague.  Even bodybuilders 
fell for the hype, switching from eggs to egg beaters or simply removing
the yolk.  It turns out that was a big mistake and those bodybuilders
who have been eating the whole egg have been right all along.  

The egg is the absolute best source of premium protein, bar none.  And 
it has a perfect blend of fat as well.  The fat in the egg has been the 
reason that doctors originally counseled avoidance of the egg.  However, 
the fat in the egg is superb.  It is a blend of saturated and 
non-saturated fat.  The myth you get from the media is that saturated 
fat is horrific.  That’s simply not true.   Dietician Martha Erickson 
points out in her book Eat for the Health of It  “The National 
Cholesterol Education Program and American Heart Association 
professionals revised their recommendations in 1989.  They now 
suggest that avoiding eggs, red meats, butter, cheese and animal 
fats is risky.  The recommendations always did state that one-third 
of the total fat should be from foods with saturated fat.  But this 
was never widely publicized.  Unfortunately, most of the medical 
profession still recommends and the public still believes that it 
is healthier to consume polyunsaturated fats such as margarine 
and oils to eliminate saturated fat.”
Dr. Mary Enig notes that saturated fats play many important roles 
in the body chemistry and more.  “Saturated fatty acids constitute 
at least 50% of the cell membranes. They are what gives our cells 
necessary stiffness and integrity.  They play a vital role in the
 health of our bones. For calcium to be effectively incorporated 
into the skeletal structure, at least 50% of the dietary fats 
should be saturated.”  Saturated fat also enhances the immune 

The human body desperately needs saturated fat.  And most 
interestingly for a bodybuilder, saturated fat is necessary 
for growth.  That’s right – your muscles need saturated fat 
to grow bigger and stronger.  Protein without fat just won’t 
cut it – the protein you eat needs fat to work with it to 
make it effective.

Perhaps one of the reasons you are not growing like you 
need to is because you have been avoiding saturated fat 
and actually think you have been benefiting your body.  
You have not.  To get maximum muscle growth, deliberately
add saturated fat to your diet.  Anyone for a pat of butter?
