The egg is your keto diet best friend
Let's face it, for many decades now, the humble egg has been demonized. There's really no other word that more accurately describes what so-called dietary experts and healthcare professionals have done to the egg.
For hundreds, maybe even thousands of years, many people have relied on the simple chicken egg for daily sustenance. It's easy to see why... eggs are typically low priced, compact and very portable. They are also very versatile in the difficult styles of how an egg can be cooked.
You can you can turn them into souffle's. You can make simple or complex omelettes. You can bake them into a wide range of dishes such as Eggs Benedict. You can add them for a firming ingredient. You can use them as a binder. You can also separate the egg whites and the egg yolk. There’s so many things you could do with that simple egg.
For a long time, we've been told the egg is bad for health. This is due to the fact that there has been so many differing opinions regarding cholesterol.
Thanks to research within the past decade, we now have a more clear and accurate view of the egg’s affect on health. What's the new consensus? It turns out that the egg, even though loaded with cholesterol, may actually be good for us.
For example, the egg contains many vitamins, nutrients and minerals, while also being low in calories. The egg also contains just enough fat to make you feel fuller for a longer period of time.
It is sad the egg (with it's dietary fat and cholesterol) has been demonized all these years. The reason for this is because people were distracted from looking at the real culprit.
What is that real culprit behind America's ever bulging waistlines. Some now believe that there is a biochemical compound to blame for the obesity epidemic that is afflicting the United States, the European Union, and just about all other areas of the world where there's a large middle class.
This dietary culprit, of course, is sugar with its concentration of carbohydrates. Examples of this could be that steaming bowl of rice, or the pile of mashed potatoes, or slice of bread that we all love to eat -- those high carbohydrate foods may actually cause more damage to your system than fat.
It's hard not to eat more carbohydrates, as they taste so good. But carbohydrates can be very inflammatory. When you look at the molecular structure of carbohydrates, it's easy to see why this could be. There are many points on the surface of carbohydrates where they soak up a tremendous amount of water.
If you eat a lot of carbs, the body soaks up a tremendous amount of water. While water is very good for you, too much water in the cells might be excessive. When you have all that water in your blood, your skin, and also affecting your nervous system, you might get inflamed.
Inflammation is the start of bad news. It can contribute to bad skin, like being more susceptible to pimples, with other skin blemishes such as wrinkles -- the net result being a premature aging of the body. This process also places a tremendous amount of pressure on the bloodstream, and this translates to high blood pressure and other cardiovascular issues. I can go on and on... such as arthritis too.
So getting away from some of those extra carbohydrates, let's consider the humble egg. The egg can be one of our dietary best friends. It definitely can help if you adopting a keto diet.
Each egg packs a lot of clean protein, which is a vital foundation for tissue building and regeneration. There's the low-calorie footprint -- and since it's loaded with fat, it can make you feel fuller for longer periods of time.
