Raw egg and coffee is a quite odd combination, isn’t it? But this pair can help you in achieving the dream body you have always admired. Yes, the strange combo can do wonders for your fitness regime. A recent study has revealed that you can speed up the weight loss process by adding an egg to your morning coffee.
The idea behind drinking egg-coffee is to add caffeine to the pre-workout as the booster, many fitness freaks do consume coffee before the workout session. Therefore, adding an egg to the coffee and taking it as the pre-workout drink just enhances the outcomes.
Meanwhile, Marc Bubbs, the director of nutrition for the Canadian Men’s National Basketball Team stated that the combination of egg and coffee has started gaining popularity as a pre-workout drink. He has used egg-coffee several times already and performing some fasted cardio in the morning. He further added that it is a modest boost like a bulletproof coffee, but with the nutrient-dense bonus of the yolk, equalled to only fatty acids.
There also some facts that consuming raw eggs can be harmful to the health because of the bacteria. If you do not know then let me tell you that some of the raw eggs can be infected with bacteria salmonella; which can lead to painful urination, joint pain and eye irritation.
But here is the good news, raw eggs are safe with coffee because the heating temperature of the coffee increases the warmth of the egg to kill the bacteria. So it makes the egg safer to consume along with coffee. Meantime, eggs require 160 degrees temperature to get cooked and for the water for the coffee requires around 200 degrees.
Also, there is another option such as pasteurised eggs; these eggs are warmed enough to kill the bacteria and makes the eggs safer for consumption. Some of the athletes trained by Marc Bubbs and some of those who used get trained by him enjoy the unique egg-coffee. Where some just eat eggs and drink coffee for the training and recovery meals.
While talking about the regularity aspect, the egg and coffee combo is no exception. People from the Scandinavian, Minnesotan, Vietnamese, and Hungarian culture have used the method of mixing raw egg and hot coffee for many centuries.
