Since it is Easter weekend, I thought I would share some important information that was given to me by colleagues regarding the controversy of consuming whole eggs or just egg whites.
Framingham Heart Study (study that follows hundreds of thousands of people) – data showed that at any given blood cholesterol level, your chance of having a heart attack is the same! Also found dietary cholesterol had no impact on people’s blood cholesterol levels. People who consumed more than the avg. amount of dietary cholesterol had the SAME blood cholesterol levels as those who ate less than the avg. amount. Our bodies have an amazing ability to down-regulate the production of cholesterol in the presence of too much dietary cholesterol.
This is an awesome article by Mike Geary that will breakdown everything you need to know about the whole egg debate- Are whole eggs or egg whites better for you?
The studies can be boring to read, but the article by Mike Geary was one that still stands out even though I read it months back.
