Diet Without Obsession of Cholesterol

In a diet that is not obsessed with cholesterol, but focuses on nutrients, an egg will look like this:

“The yolk of an egg is incredibly nutritious. It contains 100 percent of the carotenoids; essential fatty acids; fat-soluble vitamins A, E, D, and K that our body requires; and more than 90 percent of the calcium, iron, phosphorus, zinc, thiamine, folate, B12, pantothenic acid, as well as the majority of the copper, manganese, and selenium our body requires. They are also excellent sources of lutein and zeaxanthin, which evidence has shown are highly protective against developing macular degeneration—the major cause of blindness in the elderly. Since most people don’t eat liver, egg yolks are the only major source of choline, which helps to protect against fatty liver disease, which afflicts about one-third of Americans. Additionally, animal studies indicate that when you get three times more than the recommended amount of choline early in life, you can have lifelong protection against senility and dementia, along with major boosts in memory and mental performance throughout your life. Eggs yolks are primarily feared by people because of their cholesterol content, but they are jam-packed with really important nutrients, some of which are very difficult to get anywhere else in your diet.” – Dr. Chris Masterjohn

“We start with this mess of telling people to cut the fat, cut the saturated fat, and then follow with cholesterol panels. But cutting fat does not reduce the risk of heart disease. In fact, eating a low-fat diet causes incredible metabolic distortions, like high blood sugar, hyperglycemia, rising fasting glucose, insulin resistance, growth of belly fat, hypertension, metabolic syndrome, and diabetes in the genetically susceptible.”  – Dr. William Davis
