Which is your favourite egg?
Based on some research by Barker (2017) we are to consume ~17,000kcal of chocolate over the Easter weekend equating to >1,000g fat & >2,000g sugar (lol) therefore, I thought it only be right to post an “egg comparison” just to make you slightly more AWARE about the kcals in what you’re going to devour tomorrow but that’s not tonight’s topic.
Remember when you were a child & you’d eat a WHOLE Easter egg as if it was nothing, not worrying about macros? Let me ask you this, did you turn into an obese slob or maintain roughly the same weight year-round? The latter most likely. Fast forward 10-15yr however & I can BET that most of you (girls especially) ate more food to maintain your weight back in your teens than you do now, even though now you are meticulous about macros, excessively exercising & carry more muscle mass/metabolically active tissue on your frame. What went wrong? DIETING.
Back before the “fitfam”, everything was healthy, hormones & metabolism were in check & your body regulated your food intake efficiently. Queue early teens however, when the peer pressure has you pressurised to look shredded 24/7 & you end up with young, lean, growing boys/girls aggressively dieting & f**king their system up. Diet, diet, diet, never any time in a surplus or even at maintenance. Results? They hit their 20’s with a f**ked up system, low energy, maintain on poverty macros & get fat from just looking at an eater egg yet alone eat it. Why? Because you have never given your body & metabolism a chance to continue to thrive/develop to be able to sustain higher intakes.
