Dear Subscriber,

It’s a great Tuesday!

Summer is finally just round the corner
and things are starting to change
– it’s getting warmer outside… the trees
are blossoming… and everyone is changing
gears, getting ready for the new season.

And when it comes to your fitness, it’s also a
great time to change up your workout routine
and shake things up with your diet.

That’s why today I’d like to bust a common
myth that will hopefully create a change in
the way you view a certain “bad” food.

In fact, adding this one food to your diet
could have a lasting and positive effect
on your well-being!

Yours For Health,

How Could This Be A Superfood!?

It seems that with every decade that
passes, some poor food group gets

Carbs… fats… even proteins have been on the
“naughty” foods list at one time or another – a
direct result of the current fad of the times.

But there’s one food in particular that’s
received SO much bad press, that even
today most people avoid eating it.

In fact, most people would probably
have fast food before they eat this one

The irony, of course, is that science is
showing us how this one lonely food is
perhaps one of the best “superfoods” out
there, based on all the health benefits it can
provide. Better yet, this particular food is dirt

What is it?

None other than the “incredible, edible” egg!

Yes folks, there are volumes of research that
suggest eating WHOLE eggs (that means yolk and all!)
is actually good for your health.

Here are just a few of the benefits:

Keep your vision sharp: Whole eggs are a rich source
of lutein and zeaxanthin – two carotenoids that are proven
to protect your vision and ward off cataracts and age-related
macular degeneration. In fact, a study in the Journal of Nutrition
found that eating just one egg a day can significantly increase
blood levels of these two eye-saving carotenoids – without
affecting your cholesterol levels. [1]

Reduce inflammation: Inflammation has been linked to
numerous diseases, including heart disease, cancer,
arthritis and more. And guess what eggs can do…
you guessed it – they can help reduce inflammation!
It turns out that the choline in eggs can help reduce
inflammation by up to 20%, based on the findings of a
research paper in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition.
[2] Apparently, the choline in eggs helps improve neural
connections and can help the body create new cell membranes.

Lose weight: Who knew! – Eggs for breakfast when dieting
can help you shed the pounds. A study in the International
Journal of Obesity took two groups of people and put them
on a diet. The only difference is that one group got two
eggs for breakfast, while the other group got a bagel
(of an equal amount of calories to the two eggs).
The group that ate the eggs for breakfast lost 65%
MORE weight! [3] ‘Nuff said.

Build a stronger body: McMaster University did a
study on eggs and how they affect muscle growth.
What did they find? Even just 5 grams of egg protein
after your workout can help improve muscle recovery
and growth (for maximal results, the study found that
20g of egg protein is ideal). [4]

Listen, eggs are cheap. And given the health benefits,
you should seriously consider adding them to your
everyday diet.

If you have any cholesterol concerns, be sure to
check with your doctor first. There is a growing body
of evidence to suggest that eggs themselves do not
contribute to elevated serum cholesterol or heart
disease. [5,6,7]

But assuming you’re otherwise healthy, whole eggs
can be a great part of your calorie-controlled diet… so eat up!
