Yes, eggs are good for you. They are A REAL SUPER-FOOD. in short,Eggs are high in sulfur and magnesium both essential for day to day cell repair and maintenance as well as good for helping you lose weight whilst exercising. Any cholesterol increase from eggs will be neutralized by the (choline anyway). The recent studies on heart disease and its link to high cholesterol blows away the cholesterol theory as the main cause of heart disease. Japan has the lowest incidence of heart disease. The FRENCH are the second lowest. However, the average cholesterol of French people is 210-220, which is high. In the isle of Crete, where the average persons cholesterol levels are well over 200, a 10 year study showed that NOT ONE PERSON in the study had a heart attack. We should be targeting SUGAR, not cholesterol, as the culprit.
Because of this question, I felt the need to share the following:
7 Words & 7 Rules for Eating – taken from Michal Pollan
Pollan says everything he’s learned about food and health can be summed up in seven words: “Eat food, not too much, mostly plants.”
Probably the first two words are most important. “Eat food” means to eat real food — vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and, yes, fish and meat — and to avoid what Pollan calls “edible food-like substances.”
- Don’t eat anything your great grandmother wouldn’t recognize as food. “When you pick up that box of portable yogurt tubes, or eat something with 15 ingredients you can’t pronounce, ask yourself, “What are those things doing there?” Pollan says.
- Don’t eat anything with more than five ingredients, or ingredients you can’t pronounce.
- Stay out of the middle of the supermarket; shop on the perimeter of the
store. Real food tends to be on the outer edge of the store near the loading docks, where it can be replaced with fresh foods when it goes bad.
- Don’t eat anything that won’t eventually rot. “There are exceptions — honey — but as a rule, things like Twinkies that never go bad aren’t food,” Pollan says.
- It is not just what you eat but how you eat. “Always leave the table a little hungry,” Pollan says. “Many cultures have rules that you stop eating before you are full. In Japan, they say eat until you are four-fifths full. Islamic culture has a similar rule, and in German culture they say, ‘Tie off the sack before it’s full.'”
- Families traditionally ate together, around a table and not a TV, at regular
meal times. It’s a good tradition. Enjoy meals with the people you love.
“Remember when eating between meals felt wrong?” Pollan asks.
- Don’t buy food where you buy your gasoline. In the U.S., 20% of food is eaten in the car.
- I fully agree with this. If you would like, Michael Pollan has written extensively on this subject.
- Of course, don’t overeat anything , including eggs.
