With the New Year rapidly arriving, I’m reminded of all the nutty resolutions people have tried to make.
I’ve seen folks give up GOOD habits – like eating meat – and START bad ones, like joining a gym.
They’re shelling out big bucks to risk injury for torturous “exercise” they don’t need!
I even knew a guy who started one year off by giving up his daily two-egg breakfast omelet because he heard eggs were bad for you.
By February, he was GAINING weight and feeling crummy and couldn’t figure out why.
I told him to start eating eggs again – and, sure enough, he felt like his old self in no time.
Despite what you’ve heard, eggs aren’t a bad habit. They’re a GOOD one, a filling morning meal packed with healthy fats and essential nutrients.
Now, the latest science spots one more way they can help you out.
They can SLASH your risk of a stroke!
Just one egg a day will cut that risk by 12 percent – an incredible number when you consider that stroke is a leading cause of death, responsible for 133,000 fatalities every year.
Along with being a top cause of death, stroke is also a major cause of disability in seniors. Folks who SURVIVE often can’t walk, can’t talk, and can’t even take care of themselves anymore, forcing them into old folks’ homes.
That’s not the only benefit here, either, as the same new study finds that an egg habit won’t hurt your heart.
Not what you’ve heard, right? Of course not. Like my buddy who (briefly) gave up eggs, you’ve no doubt heard they have too much fat and too much cholesterol.
But it’s been proven that the cholesterol in an egg WON’T raise the levels of cholesterol in your blood, and most of the fats in eggs are of the healthy variety.
Looks like this is another “guilty” pleasure where you don’t have to feel guilty at all.
So go ahead and eat your eggs! Just be sure to get the right stuff: fresh, organic eggs from free-range chickens.
They’re not only tastier, they’re HEALTHIER, too. Studies have shown they’re packed with a better balance of omega-3 fatty acids, and another new study finds they’re also packed with 40 percent more vitamin D than “standard” eggs.
They’ll cost more than chicken-scratch – but here’s a case where it’s worth opening your wallet and shelling out a little more.
