Do eggs make us fat? NO

Why do eggs scare people so much I don’t get it? Everyone is concerned about the egg yolk and how it’s so fattening but it’s okay to hog a bar of snickers along with potato chips? or fast food meals with diet coke? Where’s the logic in that?

Whenever you are to judge something or even give advice to others you should have complete knowledge of it, not just hear what people tell you and follow it.

Anyways I have done a little research about eggs and I found very positive facts about it BUT of course as in any type of foods you need to know how much you need to consume per day to be in shape but not to completely cut it off.

 So what is an egg?

– 6 grams of protein

– 212 mg of cholesterol

– Choline; helps regulate the brain, nervous system and cardiovascular system, also good for memory.

– Selenium; strengthens your immune system and is a powerful antioxidant.

– B Vitamins, Folate and riboflavin; helps convert food intake into energy. Folate also reduces homocysteine levels which is important for prevention of birth defects.

– Vitamin A excellent for night vision, cell growth and healthy skin.

– Vitamin E works as an antioxidant.

– Lutein and zeaxanthin related to vitamin A which are found in the yellow pigment of the egg, those two are found in your retina of your eye and help prevent muscular degeneration.

The daily cholesterol intake for the human body is 300mg per day, so consuming one egg per day is enough “because one egg contains 212 mg of cholesterol” when you’re not on a diet, but when you are I totally think it’s OKAY to eat two eggs because you know you’ll starve your butt off for the rest of the day and it keeps you full for quite some time, besides it’s proven that saturated and trans fats are the greatest link to high cholesterol level in the body, also don’t forget that workout is essential, makes your metabolism work and burn.

Methods of cooking your eggs makes a huge difference, when you want scrambled eggs cook them in a non stick pan with no oil at all, or boiled or poached.

Eat them bloody eggs!
