This debate goes back and forth on the truth about vitamin absorption rates in multivitamins and supplements. Dr. Oz suggests a multivitamin and calcium be included in our diet, not as a substitute, but just as a way to make sure everything is there. If you're worried about the mainstream thought that vitamins are a waste of money because the majority never gets absorbed into your bloodstream, try a liquid multivitamin like ReViva. (I always like buying in Bulk from Sam's Club, saves me some money.)
|1-2% Milk is Great|
On a side note: Milk is a great after workout recovery snack. Take a glass and choose a workout from the Fitness Workout Database!
|Do Not Avoid Eggs!|
Say it! Go for it! "Cholesterol in eggs is bad for you." Well, Dr. Oz says you should keep Eggs (organic/free range) in your kitchen. "Yes, even the yolk." Unfortunately, studies from decades ago still rule mainstream thought that eggs lead to heart disease and other "wonderful" illnesses. Eggs should be viewed as the start of life and therefore bursting with the building blocks for the human body. Eat plentiful every morning, crack a few open for lunch, and maybe even throw in one with your steak for dinner. (As an Elite athlete, I eat 4 eggs every morning. 2-3 a day is perfectly safe and healthy.) While Free Range eggs cost a little more, they tend to be 10-20 times more nutrient packed than regular eggs. A suggestion for the financial minded: Buy 2 packs, one regular pack, one organic pack, and use 1 of each for breakfast. Another suggestion: Use an Egg Slicer on Hardboiled eggs for convenient eating, and wonderful salad presentations.
Well there you have it, myths twisted in a knot. Take your vitamins, eat your eggs, and drink your milk and you will grow to be strong and healthy!
