Let’s clear up some questions on the egg 🍳 I’ve done a bunch of research to help answers people’s questions & help you feel empowered when going for this choice of healthy fats & protein ❤️More info below:
.
This study showed that incorporating daily whole egg into a healthy, moderate-carb diet actually improved lipoprotein profile (cholesterol, triglycerides, HDL, and LDL) and insulin resistance in individuals (Src 1)
.
These 2 studies showed positive increases in HDL (good cholesterol) when consuming eggs (Src 2 & 3)
.
This study showed that egg breakfast enhances weight loss when on a calorie deficit (src 4) .
Overall, incorporating the whole egg can be part of the healthy diet. Make sure to go for pasture-raised eggs because they have 1/3 less cholesterol, 1/4 less saturated fat, 3/2 vitamin A, 2X omega-3 3x more vitamin E & 7X more beta-carotene (src 5).
