Is it true that having more than2 eggs a day will increase LDL cholesterol?

Is it true that having more than2 eggs a day will increase LDL cholesterol?

Not necessarily: Although the yolk or yellow part of an egg may have almost the total amount of daily requirements for consumed cholesterol, there are many other factors that contribute to your LDL level. Importantly, a lower LDL cholesterol level does not always indicate a lower risk of heart attack and a higher level does not always indicate an increased risk of heart attack. ...Read more

Is eating more than one egg a day too much cholesterol and harmful for you? Is the 'one-egg-a-day' saying a myth? I need reliable resources (studies)

Is eating more than one egg a day too much cholesterol and harmful for you? Is the 'one-egg-a-day' saying a myth? I need reliable resources (studies)

Food Myths: Yes, this is a myth that has now been proven incorrect. Your stomach and small intestine break down the food you eat into sugars, proteins, and fats. Your liver does not see 'cholesterol' from dietary intake. It sees proteins, sugars and fats. Thus eating cholesterol does not have much bearing on your own cholesterol counts. ...Read more

When losing weight is it true that having a cheat meal or day is good for your metabolism? Which is better? Will the foods cause me to bloat for days?

When losing weight is it true that having a cheat meal or day is good for your metabolism? Which is better? Will the foods cause me to bloat for days?

"Best" 4 metabolism: Everyone cheats on their diet a little, but not adhering to your plan most of the time means no weight loss. Best for your metabolism are well-balanced (not a fad diet) meals calculated to keep the # of calories taken in lower than the calories you burn. Exercise, avoid alcohol (empty calories), minimize snacks but factor in "cheats" every now ; then so you don't feel deprived. Keep goal in mind! ...Read more

Is the French paradox really true that one beer a day but no more lowers risk of diabetes and heart problems ?

Is the French paradox really true that one beer a day but no more lowers risk of diabetes and heart problems ?

True but complicated: On average, coronary artery disease, stroke, and death from all causes are somewhat more common in people who drink no alcohol than those who drink modestly, the equivalent of 1-2 glasses of wine a day. But risk rises rapidly with more than that. It isn't known if non-drinkers can lower their own risk by drinking modestly. But heavy drinkers almost always have improved health when they cut back. ...Read more

.

Yes, but: Fish oil is used frequently to raise good cholesterol levels and lower triglycerides. Side effects include easy bruising and bad "fishy" breath. While i used fish oil regularly, a recent trial did not show much benefit to using fish oil. Bottom line: consider multiple approaches, not just fish oil to lower your numbers. ...Read more
