Food Facts


7307-eat4Cottage cheese is an excellent high-protein alternative to eggs at breakfast. According to the April ’14 Bottom Line Health, a half cup of 1 percent milk-fat cottage cheese contains about 14 grams of protein, more than twice as much as an egg.

Coffee has been getting lots of props lately, and here’s more: It may lower your risk of type 2 diabetes, according to the May ’14 Prevention. “Harvard University researchers looked at 28 studies with more than a million combined participants and found that people who downed six eight-ounce cups of java daily had a 33 percent lower risk of diabetes.” Maybe it’s because lots of coffee energizes you so you get off your keister.

Hops can help you sleep. According to another item in the May ’14 Prevention, “Hops is the herb that puts the bitter in beer, [but] it’s been used medicinally for centuries...to treat nervous disorders, insomnia and stomach cramps.” Downing a six-pack before bed is not a good idea, however, especially if you want six-pack abs. Try taking a supplement—300 to 600 milligrams about 45 minutes before bed.
