New Guide­lines for Egg Con­sump­tion

Amazing Wellness - - AMAZING NEWS -

No need to skip your omelets and frit­tatas, be­cause a new study finds eat­ing up to 12 eggs per week for a year does not in­crease car­dio­vas­cu­lar risk fac­tors in peo­ple with pre­di­a­betes and type 2 di­a­betes. Pub­lished in the Amer­i­can Jour­nal of Clin­i­cal Nu­tri­tion, the re­search ex­tends on a pre­vi­ous study that found sim­i­lar re­sults over a pe­riod of three months.

These re­sults have prompted a call for a re­view of the Na­tional Heart Foun­da­tion guide­lines, which rec­om­mend just six eggs a week. While eggs are high in fat, they are full of vitamins, min­er­als, pro­tein, and healthy omega-3 fats. The yolk is packed with nu­tri­ents, so there’s no need to opt for egg whites only. Also, eggs do not sig­nif­i­cantly raise choles­terol in the blood, the Mayo Clinic re­ports, and peo­ple who re­place a grain-based break­fast with eggs have been found to eat fewer calo­ries through­out the day.
