What’s up guys? Today’s topic is one of the most hated on foods of all times. Today we are talking about the egg. Now this little guy just can’t get any love. People are afraid of the egg, like it’s going to raise their cholesterol or something. Dietary cholesterol has a little, if anything to do with your blood cholesterol. So I talk to people all the time and if they eat eggs, they always tell me they just eat the eggs white, that they will literally scoop out the yolk and throw it away, or they will buy the whites just themselves in a carton. Well, when you scoop out the yolk and you throw it away, you are also throwing away all the nutrients. Like 99% of the nutrients are in the yolk, vitamin B6, the amino acids, the wide array of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants, they go in to trash and not in your body. Now a lot of people have been sending me comments about how the organic food is too expensive, I can’t afford it and what not. Well, here is a really, really quick, simple, not very expensive modification that you can make to your diet. You can switch from regular commercial eggs over to free range, organic eggs, okay? The difference between the two is quite significant. A commercial egg usually comes from a sick chicken. Chickens are exposed to light almost 23 hours of the day, chickens who are un-allowed to eat what they are supposed to eat. A free range eggs comes from a free range chicken, that’s allowed to go out in the field and what not and live a natural, normal life and eat the food that it’s supposed to eat, because when it eat those foods, it also gets nutrients from those foods. When they produce its eggs, you can get the proper nutrients from the egg. So you, kind of, have a symbiotic relationship with that egg. Now one thing that you really want to avoid is the omega3 enriched eggs. Now a lot of people have jumped on the omega3 ban wagon with the eggs, but one thing that most people don't know is that those chickens are fed very, very poor forms of omega3 fats, oxidized omega3 fats, typically. Those omega3 enriched eggs are actually more perishable. They don't last as long as a regular egg even. So you want to stay away from those and just go over to free range organic egg. Do you want to learn more about eggs? Check out this book right here, it’s called, Politically Incorrect Nutrition, fantastic book by Micheal Barbee. Look that up on http://amazon.com/. Very good, straight to the point book about some of the fallacies and some of the myths in this whole health and nutrition thing. Alright, just to quit before you guys, I am out.
