Eat 3 Whole Eggs Per Day to Increase Muscle Mass, Strength and Testosterone

Sometimes you should listen to the old schoolers. Men started eating egg whites and testosterone plummeted.

Well, it appears people are listening. I meet hardgainers all the time who hate eggs. These guys want to just chug weight gainers and do barbell curls.

Youngman start squatting and eating and eating eggs.

According to Tim Ferriss in his book the 4-Hour Body, if you want terrific sex you need to eat 4 whole eggs before bedtime 20 - 24 hours before the big event in order to get 800 mg of testosterone maximizing cholesterol.

Texas A&M (College Station) did a 12 week study and found that subjects who ate three whole eggs per day while weight training almost doubled their muscle mass gains and more than doubled their strength gains. This was compared to study participants who ate no more than one egg per day.

In the past, when protein supplements were either rare or terrible tasting, eggs were a staple in the bodybuilding diet.

In addition to the protein and cholesterol, eggs contain numerous beneficial nutrients. Choline, lutein, zeaxanthin, tryptophan, selenium, iodine, vitamin B2, molybdenum, vitamin B12, phosphorus, vitamin B5, and vitamin D.

Eggs are inexpensive and portable when boiled or pickled.

Eat up and get huge!

Back in the day. I wore big glasses and eat plenty of eggs.
