Should Eggs Be Part Of Medical Weight Loss Programs?

Egg paranoia has been based on the old assumption that eating the yolks will raise blood cholesterol and increase your risk for coronary artery disease.

Researchers have looked at the diets of hundreds of thousands of people and they’ve concluded that consuming eggs every day is not associated with cholesterol problems or heart disease.

In fact, a most recent study found that eating eggs daily actually offsets bad cholesterol by increasing good cholesterol. Eggs contain many things in them, including anti-oxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, and precursors to Vitamin D.

In additional studies, patients were instructed to eat up to three eggs per day while on medical weight loss programs and good things happened. These folks lost weight, decreased their inflammation levels and improved their blood cholesterol levels. Eating the WHOLE egg and not just egg whites have also proven to reduce insulin resistance and improve blood sugars.

So change your thinking and stop avoiding eggs! They are a good thing to eat for a snack or a meal. Just don’t forget to include the yolk!
