"Egg Yolk"

Egg yolks are good for you
Dear all

I remember when I was a young boy, they said eggs are good. Then when I was a man, they said it is bad, Then as I grew older they said it is good.  This
goes on non-stop.  When are they to come up with a final decision?
Eat everything in moderation...a balance diet.
Egg yolks are good for you

The truth about egg yolks

Many people throw away the egg yolk
because they think that's where all the nasty fat and cholesterol is'.
This is a perfect example of how confused most people are about
In a world full of misinformation, somehow most people
now mistakenly think that the egg yolk is the worst part of the egg,

By throwing out the yolk and only eating egg whites, you're essentially throwing out the most nutrient dense, antioxidant-rich, vitamin and mineral
loaded portion of the egg. The yolks contain so many B-vitamins, trace
minerals, vitamin A, folate, choline, lutein, and other powerful
nutrients... it's not even worth trying to list them all.

In fact, the egg whites are almost devoid of nutrition compared to the yolk. Even the protein in egg whites isn't as powerful without the yolks to balance out the amino acid profile and make the protein more bio-available. Not to even mention that the egg yolks from free range chickens
are loaded with omega-3 fatty acids. Yolks contain more than 90% of the
calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, thiamin, B6, folate, and B12, and
panthothenic acid of the egg. In addition, the yolks contain all of the
fat soluble vitamins A, D, E, and K in the egg, as well as all of the essential fatty acids.
now the common objection I get all the time when I say that the yolks
are the most nutritious part of the egg...'But I heard that whole eggs
will skyrocket my cholesterol through the roof .' No, this is FALSE!

of all, when you eat a food that contains a high amount of dietary
cholesterol such as eggs, your body down-regulates it's internal
production of cholesterol to balance things out. On the other hand, if
you don't eat enough cholesterol, your body simply produces more since
cholesterol has tons of important functions in the body.

And here's where it gets even more interesting....There are indications that eating whole eggs actually raises your good HDL cholesterol to a higher degree than LDL cholesterol, thereby improving your overall cholesterol ratio and blood chemistry.

And 3rd... high cholesterol is NOT a disease! Heart disease is a disease...but high cholesterol is NOT.
can read the following article about why trying to attack cholesterol
is a mistake, and what the REAL deadly risk factors actually are...

I hope we've established that whole eggs are not some evil food that
will wreck your body... instead whole eggs are FAR superior to egg

Also, your normal supermarket eggs coming from mass factory farming just don't compare nutritionally with organic free range eggs from healthy chickens that are allowed to roam freely and eat a more natural diet.
I recently compared eggs I bought at the grocery store
with a batch of eggs I got at a farm stand where the chickens were free
roaming and healthy. Most people don't realize that there's a major
difference because they've never bought real eggs from healthy
chickens... The eggs from the grocery store had pale yellow yolks. On
the other hand, the healthier free range eggs had deep orange colored
yolks indicating much higher nutrition levels and carotenoids.

next time a health or fitness professional tells you that egg whites
are superior, you can quietly ignore their advice knowing that you
understand the REAL deal about egg yolks.

more thing about eggs... I read a study recently that compared groups
of people that ate egg breakfasts vs groups of people that ate cereal
or bagel based breakfasts. The results of the study showed that the egg
eaters lost or maintained a healthier bodyweight, while the
cereal/bagel eaters gained weight.

was hypothesized that the egg eaters actually ate less calories during
the remainder of the day because their appetite was more satisfied
compared to the cereal/bagel eaters who would have been more prone to
wild blood sugar swings and food cravings.
