During just about every consultation I do, I get the inevitable question: Can I eat eggs? Will they raise my cholesterol?
The idea that cholesterol in foods, such as in egg yolks, can elevate cholesterol in your body has been a standard nutritional guideline for over 50 years. Because of this, the vast majority of doctors and nutritionists, recommended that patients eat things like cereal and toast for breakfast, skipping the eggs to protect their heart from elevated cholesterol.
The problem is, they were wrong.
Turns out that after decades of research, there is no conclusive link to dietary cholesterol and elevated serum cholesterol. Finally, the truth comes out.
There are certain fats you still have to steer clear from and other factors to consider so check out today’s video so you can learn what the latest nutritional guidelines suggest, what might be right for you and how to best go about it.
In addition, I will also discuss what the best dietary approach may be for those of you with progressive heart disease, such as people who have had a heart attack or bypass surgery. You may find that this suggestion can go a long way towards protecting you from future issues and in some cases, may even reverse some of your risk factors.
As always, would love to hear from you! Do you include eggs in your diet yet still maintain a healthy cholesterol level? Or have you been so indoctrinated by this nutritional myth that you’re afraid to try? Let me know in the comments below.
