LLVLC On YouTube (Episode 8): Eggs Are The Cheapest Health Food You Can Eat

You'll be singing the praises of eggs after watching this YouTube video

Have you been following the new "Livin' La Vida Low-Carb On YouTube" series that my wife Christine and I have been recording over the past couple of months? We've had more fun doing these videos because we can let it all hang out and just be us for a change. Although I do that somewhat here at my blog and on my podcast show, there's something about being in front of a camera with the love of my life where real magic moments can happen. THANK YOU to everyone who has so faithfully supported this new venture!

In our previous video--Episode 7--we offered a chance to win a FREE AUTOGRAPHED COPY of my book Livin' La Vida Low-Carb: My Journey From Flabby Fat To Sensationally Skinny In One Year and the winner of that drawing was SlimQuest (aka Dan). CONGRATULATIONS Dan and your book is on the way to you now. :D We'll be having MANY MORE opportunities to win prizes in future videos, so KEEP WATCHING!

The educational fun continues in Episode 8 today where we discuss the incredible edible egg. As you know, eggs have been found in studies to reduce total calorie intake compared with a bagel for breakfast! YEPPERS, it's true! Nutrient-dense, chock full of healthy protein, lutein, omega-3s, and more vitamins and minerals than you could shake a stick at. And I'm talking about eating THE WHOLE EGG! GASP! But, but, but...

Before you fret, watch the video for yourself to learn more about eggs:

Yes, I know people fear the cholesterol in eggs and that's just plain silly. Eating cholesterol does NOT raise your cholesterol. But consuming tons and tons of carbs as well as stress leads the body to create unhealthy levels of cholesterol naturally through the liver that enter the bloodstream and cause the problems that lead to higher risks for heart disease and stroke. You won't hear this message very often from the so-called health "experts," but it is the truth.

We'd love to have your thoughts about Episode 8 at YouTube, so share your experiences about eating eggs for your health in the comments section of this video at YouTube. Click here to share your feedback and help educate others about why eggs are the cheapest health food you can eat!

Hi Jimmy,

Hurray! I like eggs too. I've heard that a person shouldn't eat the same foods everyday because you could develop an allergy to them (I've seen this said about eggs). I'd like to eat eggs more frequently than I have been, but I certainly do not want to develop an allergy to them. Have you seen any research one way or the other on this issue?


Amy -- would love to eat more eggs!

I've never heard of that, Amy! And I wonder how long it would take to develop such an allergy if it were indeed true. Since I've been eating nearly three dozen eggs a week for the past four years, wouldn't you think I'd be allergic by now if that were true? :) I don't buy it one second. So eat up on the eggs! YUMMY!

Eggs are wonderful, super-healthy, easy, and cheap. It is important, however, to buy free-range eggs from hens that have been allowed to feed from and in their natural habitat. Such quality eggs contain far more (up to twenty times!) and better quality nutrients such as high quality protein, EFAs, choline, lecithin, B-vitamins, vitamin D, lutein, and more. Dumping the egg yolk (often recommended by the "experts", especially with regard to the cholesterol content) is a pretty dumb thing to do, as the lean egg white, in contrast, contains little other than protein and sodium.

EXCELLENT reminder, Science! I thought about going into the whole cage-free, free-range explanation, but I didn't want to confuse anyone. This video will at least get people to start thinking about their perception of eggs. THANKS as always for your enthusiastic information!

Gotta love those eggs :) I laugh at people who say that they are bad for you. Not only did I lose 100lbs eating them every morning for breakfast, my cholesteral levels are great.

Bring on the eggs baby!
