Is there any food more instantly invigorating than eggs?

For non-Bs too?

I find eggs very satisfieing, but hard to digest. They seem to require a lot of energy from me.

My type O+ nonnie wife agreed wholeheartedly with your statement. Power food like none other.

I keep trying to find ways to reduce my eggs consumption to close to what is recommended by SWAMI, but every time I do, the body starts screaming for more...  With the healing I am doing, it seems like the body needs tremendous amounts of protein foods, so I keep providing what it wants.  Eggs and ghee are great with all kinds of vegetables.

My mom once told me that eggs were one of the best foods we could eat due to the specific protein combination along with the fat/lecithin mix.  There were so many good things for the body to grab what it needs from what is provided in the egg.

Eggs are perfect food for me
When I eat some kind of egg in the morning
I eat better the rest of the day- they keep me full for 5-6 hrs ( If I eat fruit and yoghurt I m ight be ok for 3 and I never crave sugar when I eat eggs.
I eat somewhere between 7 and 12-14 eggs a week- sure more than my swami says =9
but I simply dont care
my cholesterol number has never been better and since I find it hard /impossible to eat all the fish I should- I eat more eggs.

My eggs are the freshest  my ladies live in the back yard and is fed a healthy diet.

My daughter actually got me tuned into eggs - she ONLY wants eggs + veggies on school days since she have a hard time getting proper lunch- eggs makes her feel good and full for several hrs
Quoted Text
Egg yolks

Egg yolks are number one in my book. The way they blend effortlessly with other foods and even enrich them, and (if you get a really pastured one) provide unparalleled taste and mouthfeel when eaten straight out of the shell can’t be praised enough. The vitamin A, choline, folate, selenium, iodine, and omega-3 (again, if you get pastured) are rather nice, too. Eat egg yolks every day, just don’t smoke ‘em. Yes, that was a double reference to both the egg yolk/cigarette study and Dr. Dre.

When I started eating them on a regular basis, I noticed my hair and skin started looking better. Must be the biotin. And of course I feel great after eating them. Must be the quality protein in them.

I don't find eggs to be ALL that energizing. Yes, they're a good source of protein and healthy fats, but I don't find eggs to be particularly nourishing as compared to other animal proteins. I eat a lot of them because they're economical, but I'd feel just fine if I didn't eat them at all, so long as I got enough protein from red meat, fish, and poultry.

Love the eggs...superfood on my swami.   Three of them with tons of veggies....awesome power...yes.  Egg sandwich on grilled portabello mushrooms with lettuce and sauteed onions...yummilicious.

Wondering precisely what it is.
It can be almost magical, like an Energy Potion.
Is it the proportion of yolk fats to protein?
Is it the, dare I say it, Cholesterol?
Any ideas?

I love, love, love my eggs!  I generally cook them in olive oil.  Sometimes I throw in manchego cheese and veggies, sometimes I boil them or fry them.  Doesn't matter.  They quell my hunger for hours on end and I don't crave bad foods when I start my day with eggs.  I get mine from the farm where I get my grass fed beef.

What exactly is the "nutritional content" of one egg? Apparently not Biotin, Captain_Janeway, at least according to ENC, The Egg Nutrition Center.

Any comments?

(All numbers are in nanograms of biotin per gram of food)

Egg, yolk, cooked     272
Egg, whole, cooked     214
Yeast     202
Peanuts, roasted, salted     175
Sunflower seeds, roasted, salted     78
Salmon, pink, canned in water     59
Almonds, roasted, salted     44.07
American cheese     31
Walnuts, fresh     25.9
Pecans, fresh     20
Strawberries, fresh     15
Sweet potato, cooked     14.5
Cheddar cheese, mild     14
Grilled toast     12.3
Avocado, fresh     9.61

There are some issues related to avidin in the egg whites. But if you cook the eggs it mostly goes away.

Thanks for this!
In The GTD, Dr. D'Adamo recommends Biotin for Nomads to "enhance the...internal ecosystem, [slow] down premature aging and [enhance] immune function".
I do, however believe it's more than that, delivering the instantaneous energy when it's needed. Wonder what?

I'm saying there's gotta be something in eggs that can deliver instant energy (without being subjected to digestive metabolism). I'm wondering what that substance / combination / process is.

I love eggs, especially very large organic eggs with dark yolks.  Ruthie, are you buying organic eggs?   I buy the Country  Hen eggs when I can get them.  They taste so much better!  I generally scramble them in ghee, then sprinkle with nutritional yeast - yum!

I do think this is a key.
I have read that eggs represent the most or almost the most "complete" protein source available. Something about the intrinsic synergy, the magic balance of amino acids...

Eggs give me great energy/focus too! I like to make omelette, in ghee/olive oil, some baby spinach, parmeson cheese, a little chopped celery, fresh/dried oregano or basil, other herbs.  Or, just boiled eggs; soft boiled!  Some veg and herbs may help to digest eggs, for those who find them difficult!

I feel the yolk is particularly immediate in its effects, if it's pierced and runs -- from a fried or poached or boiled egg. It's like what happens to Popeye when he eats his spinach!

I am just popping in here to show my respect for the egg - love the versatility of this humble, accessible & unique food. And there is dense energy I agree,  just had one fried & sunny over some leftover rice with broccoli, and that's dinner!

Someone should look into the suitability of eggs replacing meat as the primary source of animal protein if our future food shortage is becoming a reality. The alternative, according to some, is "In- Vitro" meat products. A thoroughly disgusting concept being explored as a serious solution. Some alteration of allergen compounds might be necessary, but as long as organic trumps GMO, it would still be preferable to "Lab Meat".
