    9 Foods Doctors Swear By


    [​IMG]

    In my book "Eat it to Beat It!" I tell you what to eat and what to avoid, based on the latest medical research. That got me thinking, what do the medical professionals themselves put in their bodies? Here’s a roundup of those foods these doctors always feel good about eating -- their personal favorites.

    Greek yogurt

    Thanks for sharing. I eat everything on this list daily, in some form, except the eggs and chickpeas, and with the whey protein, alkaline water instead of almond milk. It seems like I need to make a few adjustments.

    No. I don't have a juicer or nutrabullet, only a mixer.

    That's great bro. Omowale, but I love eggs. Did you miss this one, it may make a difference with you:


    5 Foods You Thought Were Unhealthy – But Aren’t

    2. Eggs. Up until recently, the word “egg” went together with “cholesterol” like “horse” went with “buggy.” Stay away from eggs if you have high cholesterol or heart disease, doctors warned. Even if you don’t, limit your consumption, they said.

    But there apparently was a crack in that reasoning. New research finds that it’s okay for healthy adults to eat one egg a day without any worry about the increased risk of heart disease. The lutein found in eggs, says the American Heart Association, may actually be protective against the progress of early heart disease. Eggs are also packed with health-boosters like protein, Vitamin D and valuable vision and brain-boosting vitamins and minerals.

    But don’t make it unhealthy: Just because eggs get the green light, it doesn’t mean you should indulge in a four-egg omelet cooked in lots of butter, stuffed with cheese and sausage. Better to order an omelet consisting of 3 egg whites and one whole egg, cooked dry, piled with veggies and a sprinkling of low-fat cheese.

    You bet cha!

    And don't leave out Soy Beans ... Both soy beans and garbunzo beans function similar to meat in the diet, in that they supply 8 of the 14 essential amino acids required.

    I do it eggs but not everyday.
    i eat eggs a few days but not everyday. I get enough protein from nuts and whey protein. I'm going to more of a vegan diet so I don't eat a lot of dairy except for yogurt. A typical breakfast for me is fruit, nuts, yogurt and coffee or green tea. I don't digest eggs well and after coffee and walking they make me go to the bathroom. I'm ok if it an avacado omelette. I'm thinking about trying them hard boiled with my collard greens. The Ethiopians have a recipe called gomen. Or maybe with my kale salad. But no more than two days a week.
