❤️They are Incredibly nutritious! A good source of Vitamin A,B(B5,B12,B2,B6), D, E, and K. Additionally it contains zinc and calcium.

❤️Great for your eyes. Eggs contain Lutein and Zeaxanthin, antioxidants that have major benefits for your eyes. Eggs are also high in vitamin A.

Vitamin A deficiency is the most common cause of blindness in the world.

❤️A clean and high quality protein source. Eggs contain the all essential amino acids in the right ratios that are required to repair cells in the body and ultimately support muscle growth!

❤️Great for heart health, the yolk contains good cholesterol, HDL (high density lipoprotein), and DOES NOT raise blood cholesterol as once believed. They raise HDL content which is good cholesterol. People with higher levels of HDL tend to have a lower risk of heart disease.

❤️They are very versatile and taste great too! There are loads of recipes that include eggs in them. If you’re not allergic to eggs, you should be including them in your meals more often!


Science Fitness’s Boss Man Kevin Alvardo’s favorite egg combo is scrambled eggs + smoked salmon on a toasted bagel ????

*Also note that cooked eggs provide more nutrition than soft-boiled eggs.

Do you have a slow metabolism?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Listen, so do many people⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

There are a few possibilities here so please consider all of them.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

1) Metabolic adaptations- You have been dieting for a long time or dieting drastically or just under-eating which has resulted in your metabolism slowing down. That is why “diets” should not be chronic. Include things such as diet Breaks or change up your diet by including regular intervals higher calorie days.

2) NEAT- You may just not be very active. If you have a desk job or have low spontaneous activity like fidgeting, then you are burning fewer calories. Fix this by having a step goal and staying on your feet.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

3) You are eating more than you think- Sorry. Most people just eat more than they think. That could be oil you cook with, that could be inaccurate portioning, it could be sauces and condiments you add, etc. Try tracking everything you eat on a food scale and MyFitnessPal for 1 week. That will teach you about what and how much you actually are eating.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

It is technically possible to have a slow metabolism. But most people’s genetic variation is actually quite minor. There are other factors, like the ones mentioned above, which actually explain your “slow metabolism”.

We are all born with some form of genetic blessings. This could be in the form of attractiveness, a better immune system than the next person and other physical traits like strength, body composition and bone structure.

Genetics is probably one of the most important aspects in bodybuilding and all sports for the matter.

What’s common is seeing guys’ who are not that well developed thinking if they train with the biggest guy or follow the workout of some celebrity from MensHealth it’s going to help them achieve their goals.

Unfortunately this is not how it works because what works for ‘him’ may not work for you!

The best scenario I could use here is if a man is born and only grows to a maximum height of 5 foot 1 inch that is his GENETICS and he’s probably unlikely to become the best basketball player, become a long jump world champion or sprint the fastest 100 meters.

If you are born with short calf muscles (in fact that goes for any muscle) then you are never going to make those muscles longer

We’ve all fallen into the trap of following others because they have a great body thinking  ‘they must’ve got that body because of the way they train’? Well to a degree yes but I’ve trained with guys who have amazing arms and they do NOT even train their arms, they’ve just been genetically blessed with great arms fully developed biceps and triceps and they rely on back and chest workouts to train their arms. But that doesn’t mean that is going to work for me!

I spent years in the beginning working out with the guy who did heavy weight and only one or two reps and he was growing and getting a great body while I was getting no where. I had to keep trying different workouts to find out what worked for me and get me to where I want to be and I am still trying new things which I realise work well for me.

You all need to find your OWN personal training programme and workout that works for you!
