Leptin Resistance Breakfast - Albumin Shake?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created June 27, 2011 at 9:12 AM

A few of my friends are trying to reverse their leptin resistance following the Quilt's suggestions. I working with them to try to figure out how to get that much protein into one morning meal. They are finding it challenging.

My preference is always for real foods, but what about an albumin shake? The ingredients are only powdered egg yolk and biotin, so not full of funky additives, and it's only for 2 months.

Thoughts?

3/4 lb of wild caught salmon will do it.

Eat bacon or ham or sausage as well. You should be REALLY full. That is what keeps you from eating as much the rest of the day.

Actually, whey increases insulin pretty significantly, that is why it is used as a post workout drink. Spiking insulin in the AM may not be good for ALL DAY satiety, especially for overweight people who probably already have blood sugar issues...

Nothing, but we're trying to get close to 50 gm. of protein in the morning. Four fried eggs only takes you to 24 gm. of protein, and not everyone can stomach 3 or 4 eggs in the morning. We're looking for do-able solutions.

protein and fat decrease the incretins which is key to regaining control of the central pathways of signaling once they are lost.

I know what you mean. The OP does however say that the lowder has biotin which I believe is a large constituent of the egg white. No? Still sounds less ideal than a simple whey shake for me ni think the OP may be over thinking it.

Congratulations. Is that from the first month, or had you been dieting prior to that?

Powdered egg yolks are a rich source of oxidized cholesterol.

Whats wrong with real eggs? It takes very little time to cook them anyway.

I'm confused. Why egg yolk? The egg white is the albumen.

Egg yolks are healthy and all, but it seems very odd to include the yolks, but not the whites, in an albumen shake.

Something I started doing for quick breakfasts when I don't have the time (or money) for steaks and such and since I'm allergic to egg whites is I'll broil like, 10 1/2 lbs hamburgers which is about 50 grams of protein each and then I can have that with whatever else I'm having or by itself. I just reheat them or eat them cold out of the fridge. They keep for a few days and then my husband and I aren't caught without food.

That or I'll have a protein shake like you suggested (but with whey) and a tin of wild sardines.

Ummm..The Quilt specifically recommends holding off on whey until AFTER leptin is reset.

Sure that product you're talking about sounds fine.

I'd just say whey protein powder with minimal ingredients will do the trick easy. Yeah it's processed but it's a minor part of your day's calories and it is incredibly easy to digest and is absorbed by he system very very quickly. ON Nutrition makes the one I use. Cheap from amazon. In the context of a strict whole foods paleo diet the addition of whey powder will do NOTHING negative to you at all.

I would use raw eggs over powdered because the processing causes some major issues.
