Jim Stoppani's Shortcut To Shred: Day 14 - Rest

Rest your body and train your brain. Today's Shortcut to Shred rest day will teach you the true importance of the incredible, edible egg.

During all three nutrition phases of Shortcut to Shred, I recommend eating three whole eggs and three egg whites every morning. Whole eggs are a great breakfast food because they are packed with protein and have been shown to enhance muscle strength and mass, but clinical research also supports the notion that those who start their day with eggs have an easier time dropping body fat. Research from the University of St. Louis has shown that subjects who consume eggs for breakfast not only eat fewer calories throughout the day, but also lose significantly more body fat.

One bad meal, or bad day, won't ruin all of your hard work. I find that it's okay to cheat once in a while.
