Millions of people start off their day with oatmeal and I think that is a major mistake.

Oatmeal has been promoted by Big Food, Big Pharma, and Big Medicine. Apparently, there is more profit in oat farming than egg ranching.

But YOUR health and that of your loved ones is my only concern, not corporate profits.

I’ve got 10 reasons why eggs are better than oatmeal, and I’ve got the references from the medical literature.

  1. Lose weight and belly fat. That’s right, eggs help you to lose weight and belly fat. Eggs do not raise insulin, sugar, and carbs (oatmeal) does. Insulin stores fuel as fat.
  2. You need to feel full longer and eggs do that. So, eggs increase satiety. Oatmeal does not. You feel full longer and that’s a good thing so you’re constantly not seeking out more food.
  3. Lower inflammation. When you eat eggs versus oatmeal – this is incredible. Inflammation leads to all forms of disease. Heart disease. Cancer. Brain disease. Eggs lower inflammation.
  4. Eggs improve cholesterol numbers. Apo A is the main lipoprotein found on the surface of HDLs. The more Apo A the better. Eggs raise the Apo A!
  5. Most importantly regarding HDLs is improved HDL function. It’s one thing to have HDLs but you want to make sure they’re functional and eggs do that. They increase the functionality so HDL floats around, holds cholesterol out of plaque and actually can reverse coronary artery disease.
  6. Lower ghrelin. This is a satiety hormone. When ghrelin is high, we are hungry. The lower the ghrelin levels, the better. It also has to do with satiety.
  7. Eggs are pure brain food. That’s why they’re loaded with choline, which makes acetylcholine, which is a neurotransmitter, so nerves can communicate to each other. Also, phosphatidylcholine is one of the major cell membrane components of brain tissue and in fact most cells.
  8. Eggs are a very high source of lutein and zeaxanthin, which are two antioxidants. Antioxidants, of course, are critical for total body health. But these are very unique for eye health.
  9. A hefty serving of the fat-soluble vitamins A, D and E sits inside that multivitamin known as an egg.
  10. And speaking of vitamins, eggs are like a B complex. So, load up on those B vitamins when you eat eggs.

And certainly compared to oatmeal, because if you see the breakdown of the two, you can tell here that items like vitamin A exist in eggs and there’s not anything in oatmeal.

Same with vitamin D. There is no vitamin D in oatmeal.

Vitamin E is much higher in eggs.

And then if you look at some of the B vitamins down here. Folate. B12. There’s B12 here. None in oatmeal.

And then we talked about choline which is just pure brain food right here. Twenty times the amount of choline in eggs versus oatmeal.

And then if you look down into the minerals you’re also going to see just tremendous benefits on why you need to eat eggs over oatmeal.

And here are your references in case you want to double-check the facts.
