Eating eggs regularly may help speed fat burn, according to Donald K. Layman, Ph.D, of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. The key: lecucine, a metabolism-regulating amino acid that helped study participants who had eggs or other leucine-rich foods (such as low-fat dairy and lean meats) for breakfast lose more fat and less fat-burning lean muscle than those who ate a carb-rich A.M. meal.
We will not be talking much about the weigh-in last night. I'm on my way to the weight room. I will say I gained 12 pounds in one week. They kept saying that can't be right, get weighed again! I made a lot of mistakes last week and this does not surprise me, although, I didn't take my water pills every day. I tried to wet an envelope with my index finger and couldn't come up with one drop of saliva over and over again. The water pills are depleting my saliva to the point where I need water when I want to swallow food. HOLD ON TO YOUR HOPE AND NOTHING WILL DEFEAT YOU.
