Q. interesting article, what do you think about the shake?
“Drink raw eggs and get ripped fast!”
Ever saw a Rocky movie where he cracked some eggs in a glass and drank it all in one gulp? That’s similar to the Hormone Precursor Shake. Aside from raw eggs (12 pieces), you also add 12 ounces of half-and-half and 1/3 cup of milk-and-egg protein powder. If you are not on a carb-restrictive diet, you can also add 1 medium-sized banana for a taste boost.
Eggs are an excellent precursor to anabolic hormones such as testosterone. They are rich in nutrients that support building lean muscle, such as readily absorbed proteins, along with plenty of healthy cholesterol. They are also an excellent natural source of CLA, another muscle-building nutrient that can increase your testosterone levels.

Why fats?

Eggs are rich in fats, especially in CLA and cholesterol, which are important if you want to build and support your muscle gains. They fuel the body’s building processes and are essential for building new muscle cells, since they are part of the cellular membranes.
Like mentioned before, fats are also important in hormone production, specifically for the production of steroid hormones such as testosterone.
And of course, we know what steroid hormones do, boost your ability to build muscle. It would also be helpful to that cause to add even more foods that boost testosterone production.
1st day of the month start a workout calendar!

Here is a look at the Men's Health Transformation Challenge.
