Eggs are good for you and delicious.
There are also those who worried about the cholesterol contents of the egg – but the purveyors of those utterly disgusting egg-white-only omelettes are having to eat their words, after new evidence showed that the cholesterol content in eggs is not the type to affect blood cholesterol.
I've been doing my own version of a low-carb diet and eggs have been a huge component.

In related news the anti-vegan, Caveman diet, has come to NYC. It's a bit too extreme for my taste by I can see its benefits, to each his own I guess.

The caveman lifestyle, in Mr. Durant’s interpretation, involves eating large quantities of meat and then fasting between meals to approximate the lean times that his distant ancestors faced between hunts. Vegetables and fruit are fine, but he avoids foods like bread that were unavailable before the invention of agriculture. Mr. Durant believes the human body evolved for a hunter-gatherer lifestyle, and his goal is to wean himself off what he sees as many millenniums of bad habits.

These urban cavemen also choose exercise routines focused on sprinting and jumping, to replicate how a prehistoric person might have fled from a mastodon.

P.S. Title inspired by the Canadian restaurant Eggspectations! It's a great breakfast place that has egg puns in all their menu options.
