3 “Forbidden” Foods to Eat Every Day
Tired of being told you have to give up EVERYTHING to keep your heart healthy?
I know I am.
For years, mainstream medicine has had a “naughty list” of foods you can’t eat if you’re worried about your heart.
The only problem? That list is garbage.
In fact, there are three “banned” foods you should be eating regularly to keep your heart humming.
And one of them you can throw right on the grill this 4th of July.
It’s scary how behind the times the medical community is.
New research is coming out daily that gives us new, better—more accurate—insights into, well, practically everything.
There’s just one problem… all that new insight can take years—DECADES even—to become the “standard of care”—and even longer to become “common knowledge.”
Nowhere is this more evident than in the so-called heart-healthy dietary recommendations.
For years we’ve been told that we need to cut some of the tastiest foods out of our diets, all in the name of good health.
But that (bad) advice was based on the (false) idea that dietary cholesterol caused high blood cholesterol—a fact that has been PROVEN to be a myth.
Here are 3 foods that have been falsely demonized for their negative effects on the heart.
Red meat. In addition to being one of the tastiest foods on the planet, it’s also one of the healthiest.
It’s loaded with protein, B vitamins, iron, zinc, selenium, and plenty of minerals.
But not all meat is created equal. While natural, grass-fed beef can actually reduce your risk of heart disease, processed meat is associated with an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, and death.
So eat your red meat…just make sure it’s organic and grass-fed.
Eggs. Yes, egg yolks contain cholesterol. So what? Dietary cholesterol does NOT cause heart attacks, and neither do egg yolks.
In fact, the latest research shows that people who eat eggs every day have a lower risk of heart disease and stroke compared to non-egg-eaters.
Salt. Salt is essential for our health.
Your body couldn’t operate without sodium—and salt is our primary source. It helps you maintain fluid levels, it helps transmit nerve impulses, and it helps your heart and blood vessels contract and relax. Yes, that means this mineral is actually essential for heart function!
But the problem with salt isn’t the kind that’s in the shaker, it’s the fact that it’s dumped by the gallon into packaged, processed foods.
If you’re going to cut something out, cut out the fake junk foods.
Then you can feel free to add plenty of this tasty mineral to your meat and eggs.
Your heart—and your taste buds—will thank you for it!
To a brighter day,
