Can eating the whole egg be dangerous?
Is there really a chance that whole eggs will affect your quality of life and your health in a negative manner? There has been great controversy for years over this question. Recent research has finally given us the true answer.
Eggs are one of the most nutrient-dense foods on the planet, its crazy that eggs have been demonized so much! I always get a eskeptical look from clients when I tell them to eat the whole damn thing! When you miss out on the yolk, you're really cheating yourself from an array of amino acids, vitamins and minerals that are vital for wellness.
Here's four reasons why you should be eating the whole egg:
1.Eggs are some of the best source of proteins which will help you for optimal muscle develpment.
2. They help your brain (totally seriously). The egg yolk contains choline, it's used by the body to produce acetylcholine, a neurotransmitter that improves cognition. Choline also aids in bone formation, cancer prevention, and even preventing body fat gain (vitamin D).
3. Egg is a super food that won't take your entire paycheck. They're rich in selenium, antioxidants, and even lutein.
4.Eggs will help you reduce fat. Yes, eggs are satiating and reduce hunger. In a study, inviduals who ate eggs for breakfast had a greater reduction in waist circumference, and had fewer sensations of hunger than those who started their day with a carbohydrate based breakfast.
What about Cholesterol?
Eggs have had a bad reputation for a long time. They've been associated with higher risk of heart disease, diabetes, cancer, and high cholesterol. Most of these associations have been created by " association studies" which have a poor reputation in the scientific world for a reason.
These studies have been criticized for being extremely poor quality. The average american has a diet generally high in fat and high in calories. Which is related with higher heart disease risk, and higher body fat percentage. That is the real danger.
Eggs when combined with a healthy diet and an efficient exercise regimen, can be a powerful tool for fatloss and optimal health.
