It's interesting to me because I've heard/observed that before.   What is the rationale?

Looks to be a relatively well balanced meal.  Could use more fat in the form of yolk or olive oil.

Egg yolks are an excellent source of organic matter to compliment serious training. Remember that sex hormones like testosterone are lipid-soluble cholesterol derivatives. The protein in the egg is highly bioavailable and anti-catabolic, and the fat supports healthy hormone levels. Whole eggs promote anabolism like few natural foods can.

x2  Maybe it is placebo effect, but when I eat whole eggs or even steak I notice a difference in training that day.  Not a massive difference like bench went from 400 to 500 but I don't tire as easy, can sometimes go a little heavier, or squeak out some extra reps/sets.   So there seems to be something to this idea.

Interesting anecdotal evidence.  I may have to do a little more poking around on this topic.

There's a lot of good things to be said for animal proteins.

Not placebo,same thing happened to me in regards to strength gain and i look better to. I get my cholesterol checked and see no difference. One of my favorite meals I put 8eggs in a bowl with a pinch of salt and pepper,whip them with a fork,then spray pan with Pam and cook. When there almost done brown a large tortilla for about 30 seconds a side,put eggs inside and roll a burrito. When eating pour a little tapatio hot sause on top with each bite(pour with each bite not inside,taste better).

I figure I just try to be reasonable when it comes to fat and cholesterol.  If I eat steak that day then maybe I skip eggs.  Likewise if I eat some eggs then I usually skip the steak.  Unless it is the weekend and I am going to work out for a longer period of time (2-3 hours).  Then I eat both and often at the same time.  LOL   Grin

I would bet for most people it probably isn't even an issue.  I just don't eat too much of it all at once since both grandfathers had heart troubles . But...then again they did live during the depression era when stuff like lard on toast was a meal so... who knows really.   Tongue

I was waiting for you to say that Woo. And I wasn't disappointed.  What fat should I add?

top 3 fat sources:

organic lard
organic coconut oil
organic butter

any of the 3 would dramatically improve the value of your breakfast

You follow the Keto Diet and are well-read.
Isn't coconut oil supposed to be one of the most ketogenic fats there is?

yep (I follow LCHF now (the Swedish keto diet))

to your coconut oil question: it is... 86.5% saturated if I remember correctly almost no PUFA...

roughly half of that saturated fat is lauric acid (again, going from memory here)

lauric acid converts to the monoglyceride monolaurin in the body

monolaurin behaves like a monounsaturated fat and has additional antimicrobial benefits in addition to causing huge increases in HDL for most people

Thanks for the info.
Did they ever discover why ketogenic diets help prevent seizures in children?
Does it have comparable effects on adults?

I love being able to ask someone these types of questions. I'm growing tired of researching! Wink

the ketogenic diet and coconut oil therapy in particular is supposed to do lots of things... i don't think there are enough double-blind studies out there to prove anything yet, but I would suggest that anyone following a whole (raw) food diet (no processed foods) that also includes a large amount of coconut oil & lard will be significantly healthier than the alternative

The evidence certainly points in that direction.
