Think again before you get rid of your egg yolk(s) and only eat the whites.
You’re throwing away so much nutrition, and that should be a punishable sin!
Seriously though, the reason why everyone got scared of egg yolks and other saturated fats is because of a very flawed study that was done many years ago.
The results claimed that eating saturated fats led to heart disease, what they failed to take into account was the lifestyle of each subject. Their sugar intake, their level of activity, smoker/non-smoker and other factors that could cause heart disease!
Now, it’s finally getting into mainstream media (which is unfortunately, when people really pay attention) – saturated fats are not the devil!!
Excess sugar, trans-fats, inactivity, smoking, etc are things should be avoiding!
So please eat your egg yolks, enjoy them*! Eating 2 or 3 eggs? Eat your yolks!
*Everything in moderation of course! Aim to eat eggs ~3 times weekly. I’m working on my egg addiction, ha! Eat more omega-3 rich fish, and don’t get carried away with eggs.
