Brett Melanson, a PhD Candidate in Behavioural Neuroscience, describes how exogenous ketone supplementation, precisely in the form of ketone esters, can enhance performance and possibly reduce anxiety-like state. Combining ketone esters with ketone-salts or MCTs may also enhance motor performance. The addition of keto esters to a ketogenic diet may also provide benefit in reducing the long-term elevations in lipid and cholesterol that can arise from a persistent ketogenic diet alone.
Nowadays, the idea of ketone ester diet has already been utilised by nutritional companies like Ketone Aid, which received positive feedback from athletes claiming a boost to their typical performance compared to training without the ketone ester supplementation.
In this post, Dr. Berg describes the numerous health benefits of eating eggs: One of the key reasons that I consume eggs on a regular basis is not only do I enjoy it, but eggs have the greatest anabolic effect out of all the food options around. Anabolic means that it's contributing to growth. Building muscle protein.
48% of egg actually turns into your body tissue and that's pretty much the highest, not counting breast milk. Moreover, cholesterol and fat in the yolk actually help in the anabolic effect.
Egg whites have really low amounts of essential fatty acids, while egg yolk contains most of the nutrition.

“Even though it is common knowledge, it never ceases to amaze me that all the richness of our mental life - all our feelings, our emotions, our thoughts, our ambitions, our love lives, our religious sentiments and even what each of us regards as his or her own intimate private self - is simply the activity of these little specks of jelly in our heads, in our brains. There is nothing else.” -V.S. Ramachandran
Some organisms are nothing more than one cell. These tend to be microscopic like bacteria, have short lives and a very restricted repertoire of behaviors. In comparison, multicellular organisms can reach thousands of mets (honey fungus), live virtually forever, (lobsters) and pilot space shuttles (humans). To achieve this complexity, they have to overcome one particularly daunting task: coordinating all their cells.
