So for the last 2 weeks I have started consuming raw eggs twice a day, for breakfast and lunch. I know what people’s preconceptions are about raw eggs and the fact it is a high-risk food. But I mix one teaspoon of sugar in with the egg and mix them together. I would only avoid doing this is you are immune compromised.
Sugar is a hygroscopic substance, which absorbs water and air. The sugar starts to preserve and cook the egg and reduces any risk of salmonella. It is not a 100% guarantee to remove the risk but it does reduce the risk. I keep my eggs in the fridge and ensure that they’re not damaged and in date.
Eggs are one of the most nutritious foods on this planet. Also, it’s the most potent protein source, which contains all the 9 essential amino acids. While egg whites basically contain just protein, an egg yolk contains fats, vitamin A, vitamin B, selenium, phosphorus and foliates. If you want to lose weight or gain muscle, eggs are your best bet. The satiety feeling that you get after consuming a whole egg prevents you from eating unhealthy stuff and empty calories, thereby helping you in your weight loss.
So far after 2 weeks I have lost 3kg of weight, 2kg of fat and 1kg of muscle. I will continue to run this experiment for another 4-6 weeks to see what the final results are.
