Eggs and dietary cholesterol –dispelling the myth
Today a client asked me how many eggs he can eat without effecting his cholesterol.
He was surprised when I told him that the cholesterol in eggs isn’t a big deal, and there’s plenty more good stuff in eggs than bad….so enjoy. In fact there are a lot of the good fats in eggs, its protein and nutrient rich, and isn’t calorie dense! Bring on the eggs!
As these authors in this study pointed out
“Most health and heart Advisory bodies in the UK, Europe and elsewhere no longer set limits on the number of eggs people should eat, provided they are consumed as part of a healthy diet that is not high in SFA.”
Sounds like a whole lot like common sense to me…GASP!
“The egg is a nutrient-dense food, a valuable source of high quality protein and essential micronutrients that is
not high in SFA or in energy. In the current difficult financial climate, eggs can play a useful role as a relatively
inexpensive source of nutrition for all and especially for people on low incomes.”
So before you head to the supplements…..get some eggs into ya!….soo much cheaper, and you can have boiled eggs in those funky little cups.
“The high protein content of eggs may help with weight maintenance or loss, a significant factor in the context of the current fight against obesity. It is high time that we dispelled the mythology surrounding eggs and heart disease and restored them to their rightful place on our menus where they can make a valuable contribution to healthy balanced diets.”
Yep, include eggs in your well balanced diet folks.
