The Benefits of Eggs

Did You Know…?

The egg is by far my most favorite food in regards to building muscle and staying healthy.  This incredible oval-shaped protein bomb provides so many benefits that it would be a damn shame to ignore it.  So right off the bat… you need to eat eggs. But don’t just take my word for it (cue the Reading Rainbow intro music).

  1. Eggs provide the highest quality protein available.  Eggs also provide all 9 essential amino acids in the proper amounts. Other foods might have more protein, but not all protein is created equal.  A lot of that other crap protein comes right out your butt and ends up at a water treatment plant.  What a waste! PUN! Boom!
  2. Eggs are a great source of Omega-3 fatty acids, much like fish.  However, fish oils if accidentally left in your pocket during a grueling workout can smell like your dog just popped one hell of an anal gland.  Disgusting!  Let the happen while your “parking the car” on a date night with your partner.  Game. Set. Match.
  3. Eggs raise your HDL levels.  This is the good cholesterol.  You want this.  You need this.  It was once assumed that the cholesterol in eggs raises your LDL (bad cholesterol).  It’s bull.  Doctors were wrong.  Saturated fats do that.
  4. Eggs provide one of the best sources of choline, which is essential for brain development. If your constantly knocking the boots, performing the horizontal tango, cuddling aggressively, pretending to be someone’s Siamese twin, and then you become pregnant, choline is key for your baby’s health.  Great job on all intimacy though!  Good for you!
  5. Eggs support weight loss because they increase hormone levels that help you feel satisfied. They also reduce variances in your insulin and glucose levels which keep you from that starving crash feeling. Watching movies with Jason Momoa and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson also help you feel satisfied; but you don’t eat them.  Well, you shouldn’t.

Okay.  There it is.  I hope this helped you decide to incorporate eggs and movie stars into your daily diet.  But of course, always check with your family doctor first.  Yeah, because they really know about nutrition (smh).
