Eating Eggs: Good for You or Bad for You?
Eating Eggs: Good for You or Bad for You? Do you know the answer?
Eggs are good for you!
Eating eggs far outweigh the tiny contribution they may eventually make to heart disease...
Research shows that the health benefits of the perfect protein and other nutrients in eggs should not be ignored as part of a healthy diet...
It is official...
- A study recently published online in Risk Analysis estimates that eating 1 egg per day, is responsible for less than 1% of the risk of coronary heart disease (CHD) in healthy adults. Your lifestyle, including poor diet, smoking, obesity and lack of physical exercise, contribute 30% to 40% of heart disease risk, depending on your gender. More than thirty years of research have shown that adults can enjoy eating eggs without really affecting their risk of heart disease.
- Research shows us that overweight men who eat eggs while on a low-carbohydrate diet, have a noticable increase in their HDL levels (the "good" cholesterol) compared to men who do not eat eggs.
- In a recent study, eating two eggs for breakfast as part of a reduced-calorie diet, helped overweight adults lose 65% more weight and reduce their BMIs by 61% more than those eating a bagel breakfast of the same amount of calories. In addition, the
study found no real difference between the HDL and LDL cholesterol levels of those eating eggs and those eating bagels.
