Whether ‘tis nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of eating strictly lean foods, or to take in the good fats that come along with eating egg yolks is an age old question. I’m sure Shakespeare pondered this same thing.
My take falls in the moderation category. Any time I am fixing eggs, I usually am needing them for protein sources. So that is my main priority, and I will do 6 eggs. And even though I am not necessarily at risk for high cholesterol, I will do only 3 yolks. Yes, I do want the omega-3 fatty acids, but I also count macros. So, I don’t want to get all my fat intake for one day in one setting. I need to spread it out.
Jillian Michaels, that celebrity Biggest Loser training lady, posted a very good article on her website summarizing this topic. I suggest you check it out here.
