Read an exclusive preview of Men's Health's new book, Eat This, Not That! - the no-diet weight-loss solution.
When it comes to breakfast, you can’t beat eggs. (That was too easy, wasn’t it?) Seriously though, at a cost of only 72 calories, each large egg holds 6.3 grams of high-quality protein, along with a powerhouse punch of vital nutrients. A study published in the International Journal of Obesity found that people who replaced carbs with eggs for breakfast lost as much as 65 percent more weight. Research conducted in Michigan showed that regular egg eaters enjoyed more vitamins and minerals in their diets than those who ate few or no eggs. By examining surveys from more than 27,000 people, the researchers found that egg eaters were about half as likely to be deficient in vitamin B12, 24 percent less likely to be deficient in vitamin A, and 36 percent less likely to be deficient in vitamin E. And here’s something more surprising: those who ate at least four eggs a week had noticeably lower cholesterol levels than those who ate fewer than one. Turns out the dietary cholesterol in the yolk has little impact on your levels of blood cholesterol. Substitutes: None
Recipe idea: Serve a fried egg over a wholemeal muffin with salsa; hard-boil a dozen eggs and keep them in the fridge to eat on their own or chopped over salads; or sauté diced vegetables and knock up an easy omelette.
"those who had been drinking five or more cups of tea per day were 26 percent less likely to die of any cause"
There was a letter in the Lancet recently about this sort of statement.
haha! took me several minutes to realise what was wrong with that statement !
well pointed out
I also thought that you could only drink tea, not eat it, so the title "10 foods you should eat every day" is a bit of a misnomer.
Good to know that I am now varying percent less likely to die of any cause depending on my intake of food and amount of daily exercise.
Imagine being immortal though. At what point would it dawn on your that that would be the worst possible fate imaginable? Or would you learn through eons of time to live with it? I suppose you wouldn't have any choice.

Being immortal would be fine so long as you had a really bad memory.
Perhaps that's the way things actually are. We're not going to know any different are we? The Big Bang wasn't the start of everything, just a time when lots of shit was going down. That's what I reckon. Read Spinoza.
