This last issue they published an article: "High Egg Consumption Associated with Diabetes Risk."
They cited two studies (Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard) finding that more than one egg a day was associated with and increase in some people's risk for diabetes of up to 77%.
They then went on to propose that it was because people were replacing their whole wheat cereals with eggs. Soon after, they started bashing the sat fat content and cholesterol values.
I'm perfectly happy eating my 4-6 eggs per day. Happier still that I haven't bought a cereal box (minus steel cut oats) in over two years. I'll take my chances...
WOW, your delima sounds just like mine. My mom is familar with the traditional way of thinking and is pretty sure about it all. Everytime she sees me eat or hears that I am fasting in the afternoon, she goes all crazy and tries to send me all these articles from random places. I can send her all the clinical trials and studies that Id like, but she dosent care, it 'dosent make sense' she says.
But im with Steven, I love my eggs too much.
