Should You Eat The Yolks – Was The China Study Right?

I decided to read today’s Book-of-the-Day while I was eating my sunny side up, pasture raised eggs on a salad for breakfast.

Make sure you grab a copy of “Eat The Yolks”.

The author brings up some interesting points.

1. We need fat. So eat the whole egg, not just egg whites:

“When our bodies don’t have the nutrients from fats—for basic tasks like cellular repair, hormonal function or even damage control, they let us know.”

Appetite increases, and we’re driven to eat more as our bodies seek nutrients from anything, at any cost.

That’s why diets don’t work, especially low-fat diets; they often restrict nourishment along with calories.

2. It’s not just lack of willpower that makes us fat, it’s also hormonal imbalance from eating empty, processed food calories:

“Since leptin (a hormone) is what gives us a feeling of satiety when we’re full, our hunger can become excessive and relentless, just as it can when we restrict food.”

Fatigue can become debilitating. Weight loss becomes impossible and weight gain becomes inevitable.

It’s all about the hormones. Hormones, not lack of willpower, drive hunger and overeating in response to dieting and food restriction.

3. Add some wholesome fat back into your diet:

“Natural, unrefined fat is perfectly healthy. Especially fat from properly raised animals.”

So make yourself a latte, pour in the cream, and enjoy your three-egg omelet with all the yolks. Your body, your skin, and your brain will thank you.

One thing I would add is that it really matters how the animal was raised on the farm.

When I worked with Joel Salatin on his research farm Polyface, Inc. in Virginia, we sent eggs from his chickens raised on grassy pastures to the National Institutes of Health.

Joel’s eggs tested higher on every positive nutritional count compared to factory raised eggs. The lab couldn’t believe their equipment’s readings.

Not sure everything in this book is right. But remember it’s all about experimenting and testing different meal strategies (I think try five different diets before you decide) until you find what makes you thrive.

Brain Games; How Ping Pong Can Make You Smarter

The two attributes most correlated with your income are willpower and brainpower. You have to want to learn to expand your mind.

It’s all about making your brain as adaptable as possible and increasing your neuroplasticity.

There are a lot of fun ways to do this. I like playing ping pong with two or three balls, playing speed chess, backgammon, poker, etc. Games are a great way to keep your mind sharp and expand your IQ.

It’s all about the environment you surround yourself in and the lifestyle you choose to live. Force different parts of your brain to constantly be active so that it can become as adaptable as possible.

The Greatest Quote Of All Time

What’s the world’s best quote? I think it’s this one by Alexander the Great: “Through every generation of the human race there has been a constant war, a war with fear. Those who have the courage to conquer it are made free and those who are conquered by it are made to suffer until they have the courage to defeat it, or death takes them.”

People often ask me if I read a book a day, how I remember what I read. The answer is multi-faceted. You need a few tools. One is to record yourself on your phone doing a “practice” speech. You ONLY get good by doing.

If you want to be able to recite from memory than you have to just do it a lot. I have no idea why humans can’t get that through their thick skulls (my own thick skull included, haha)…

Public speaking is another great format to drive yourself to remember things. You have to lead yourself with reward. The mind follows the reward. So just know that memorizing great quotes not only gives you powerful mental tools to make the right decisions but it also IMPRESSES people.

If you think humans don’t judge by the outward you are deluded. They always have and always will. Despite what the warm fuzzy memes on Facebook and TV tell you.

Guess why most people won’t speak publicly? They’re too afraid of what other people will say. FEAR! (Which is why you should memorize this quote from Alexander the Great)…

In my “67 Steps” program I talk about something called the “Man on the Moon Principle.” If mankind can accomplish something as difficult as putting a man on the moon then you and I can definitely remember more of what we read. Click here to learn more about the 67 Steps Millionaire Mentor Program.

I recently read about all the people in North Africa who memorize the Quran. Just everyday people.

Memorize things!

It’ll make you more impressive.

You want to have powerful mentors?

You want investors to give you a million dollars?

You want customers to buy more from you?

You have to be impressive.

But pain and fear may be bigger driving forces for some humans than reward. Fear is the stallion running around in your brain. Like Alexander the Great says, if you don’t throw a saddle on that horse and learn to ride it then that stallion will kill you.

Most people have never learned to harness their fear.

And that fear causes them to suffer.

They’re not in abundance. They’re in scarcity.

You need to get into abundance.

And I’m not just talking about wealth. I just read about a hundred-year-old body builder who won Mr. Universe in the 1950’s and he still lifts weights. This guy is a hundred-years-old and he has abundant health.

You can have it too.

But you have to put in the work.

The goal in memorizing this quote is not just to be impressive; it’s to harness that horse so that you find health and wealth.

The world is abundant. People blame their failures on the recession but that’s BS. I was just at dinner with a guy under 40 who created a $480 million dollar business from scratch.

My aunt was married for 65 years. There can be an abundance of friendship, love, and happiness.

Happiness is a contrast bias. You can’t feel it all the time but you can feel fulfilled.

What’s the easiest way to do that? Start by filling up your brain with quotes like this.

Build up your willpower. Step by step you get ahead, but not necessarily in fast spurts.

To me, the opposite of fear is abundance. The world is abundant, you just need to conquer your fear and you can get what you want from life.
