"EB to the Third Power" Can Help Americans Improve their Diets, Health and Energy
NEW YORK, June 25 /PRNewswire/ -- Eggland's Best, America's No. 1 branded egg, and exercise pro Cathe Friedrich today announced they are teaming up to help Americans make fitness and healthy eating an essential part of their everyday lifestyle. To highlight the connection between nutrition and exercise, the partners will debut their "EB to the Third Power" (Exercise Better + Eat Better + Eggland's Best) program in two exclusive "Power Hour" events in New York City.
During these "Power Hours," Cathe will demonstrate a high-energy, innovative exercise workout from her Shock Training System (STS) DVD series that can lead to better health, increased energy and practical weight management when combined with delicious and nutritious Eggland's Best egg recipes.
According to a growing body of evidence that includes more than 25 recent studies, the post-workout meal is just as important as the pre-workout diet. These studies show that the post-exercise intake of high-quality protein, such as the protein contained in EB eggs, can aid in muscle recovery.(1) Recent research also suggests that starting the day with a protein-rich breakfast that includes eggs may help consumers feel full longer and eat less throughout the day. It may even help preserve lean muscle while dieting.(2)
Eggland's Best eggs are a great addition to a healthy diet and weight management plan because, in addition to their containing a significant amount of high-quality protein, they are higher in Vitamin E, Omega 3 and Lutein, and lower in cholesterol and saturated fats than ordinary eggs.
