If that headline didn’t pique your interest, we’re certain by the end of this article you’ll be ending your day much the same way as it started—having breakfast for dinner. That doesn’t mean sucking back a coffee or eating a bowl of sugary cereal. When we say breakfast we mean eggs. Specifically, an omelette loaded with veggies.

Think of a veggie omelette as the dinner choice for serious weight loss and gains. Here’s why.


The Almighty Egg

There is a reason why eggs are considered a superfood. A nutritionally complete protein source —containing all 9 essential amino acids—that’s low in calories and contains many beneficial antioxidants such as lutein (for eyesight) and vitamins like choline (brain health) to support your overall health. Additionally, in one large egg you’ll receive iron, 6 grams of protein and B vitamins. If you’ve read that eggs are harmful to your cholesterol, banish that outdated thought because emerging studies all indicate that eggs are actually anti-inflammatory, for they drop bad LDL cholesterol and stimulate good HDL levels—thank you science, for clearing up that misconception.

Without question eggs are one of the best protein sources available but what does this have to do with weight loss? So here’s the thing, when you start or finish your day off with eggs they not only are low-cal (77 calories per large egg) they also leave you feeling satiated. A full stomach means less snacking which leads to greater weight lost.

Egg-celent Sleep and Weight Loss

We’re not through dishing the skinny on why you need to start eating omelets for breakfast; oh no, did you know that eggs are loaded with melatonin and L-ornithine? Both are necessary for good sleep. Melatonin helps fall asleep quickly and promotes deeper REM sleep while L-ornithine improves the quality of your sleep. Mix in some melatonin-rich vegetables (asparagus and broccoli) and/or seeds and nuts (walnuts or flaxseeds) and you’re setting up your body for a deep, restorative sleep.

In guaranteeing that you get at least 7 hours of sleep a night, you’re more likely to meet your weight loss goals. Why? Sleep actually is your weight loss driver. Studies are beginning to underscore this point, that not getting 7 hours can actually hinder your weight loss efforts—even if you’re eating right and exercising—for these reasons:

    • You’ll lose less weight from fat: thanks to metabolic grogginess and raised insulin levels.
    • You’ll be insatiably hungry: less than 7 hours depresses hunger hormones leptin and ghrelin which increases your appetite.
    • You’ll make poor dietary choices:lack of sleep reduces your ability to make complex decisions so your willpower to say no to that cupcake, may be in jeopardy.
    • Your meals won’t lead to satiation: poor sleep sadly also is linked to bigger portion sizes which leads to greater weight gained.
  • You’ll lack the energy or motivation necessary to exercise.

  • In a nutshell, if eggs can help you catch some zzz’s so you’ll have the get-up-and-go necessary to eat right and exercise then it’s time to add omelets to your dinner rotation.


    End Your Day with Eggs

    So if eggs can help you shut off your mental to-do list so you can hunker down for a better night’s sleepand can help stimulate weight loss then what have you got to lose? The answer is simple: the only thing you’ve got to lose by adding eggs to your diet, is straight up pounds.

    Shipping & Delivery

    Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

    Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

     

    We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

    We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

    For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

    We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

    Returns & Exchanges

    BodyRock Equipment

    We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

    Digital Products

    We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

    Clothing

    All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
