The Best Breakfast for Men
With 6 grams of protein and less than 100 calories, an egg is the perfect food.
Go ahead and scramble those eggs, yolk and all—there’s new evidence that it may lower your risk of heart disease.
Two new studies from the University of Connecticut recently presented at the Experimental Biology conference found that eating eggs actually improved cholesterol levels and reduced disease-producing inflammation in the body.
In one study, researchers asked participants following a carbohydrate-restricted diet to eat three whole eggs per day while another group ate an equivalent amount of egg substitute. After 12 weeks, the whole egg group experienced increases in levels of “good” HDL cholesterol, from 50 mg/dL to 59 mg/dL. (Doctors say men should aim for HDL levels over 40 mg/dL.) Their LDL (“bad”) cholesterol levels didn’t change at all. (For more delicious, belly-filling foods, click here!)
