Cholesterol is a fat, waxy like substance that is found in all the cells of your body. Your body already makes all the cholesterol that it needs to make vitamin D (actually a hormone) and support other dietary functions and when you put to much of it in your body your asking for trouble.
What are eggs known for? Being edible? Nope, they are known mostly for their high cholesterol content.
So are eggs bad for cholesterol? Well let me ask you? Your body makes all the cholesterol that it needs and has a hard time getting rid of the excess. In fact it causes cardiac diseases and ultimately leads to death. Do you think eating something that has a lot of cholesterol is good for you?
Today I would like to change the way you think about eggs!
Let's put aside all the research, the 'he said, she said' and think about eggs in terms of our natural diet. Let me first define our 'natural diet' as I see it. We were put on this earth naked and with not much else.
So imagine yourself with no tools and no weapons. What would you eat?
Let's say you come up on a nest and there are 4 eggs there. Could you eat them right then and there? Most people say that eating raw eggs is gross and they gag when they do try.
Eggs in their natural state are disgusting to us. There is a reason for this.
Your body is giving you every indication that this is not your food. If it was you would love eating it raw instead of trying to gag to get it out!
The fact that we alter the egg to consume it doesn't really change the fact that it is naturally not our food.
One thing that I strongly believe and that I wish to impress most upon people is that our food should not hurt us in any way, ever.
When someone says that the benefits of eating something far outweighs the dangers, I know that they are not talking about food. Eggs fit into that category.
