Let’s face it, for many decades now, the egg, as humble as it may look, has been demonized. There isn’t really another word that does justice to what so-called dietary experts and healthcare professionals have done to the egg.

Think about it, for hundreds, if not thousands of years, people have relied on the simple chicken egg for a decent chunk of their daily sustenance. It’s easy to see why; eggs are normally cheap. They are very compact. They are portable. They are also adaptable and versatile.

You can turn them into a souffle. You can make omelets. You can bake them into a wide range of dishes. You can add them as a firming ingredient. You can use them as a binder. You can also separate egg whites and egg yolk. There are just so many things you could do with the egg!

It is really quite a shame that for such a long time, we have been told that the egg is really bad for us. This is due to the fact that there have been a tremendous amount of misconceptions regarding cholesterol.

Thanks to the research in the past 10 years, we now have a clear and accurate view of the egg’s effect on human health. What is a new consensus? It turns out that the egg, while loaded with cholesterol, is actually good for us.

It not only contains a long laundry list of vitamins and nutrients and minerals, but It also has a very small caloric footprint. It is also loaded with fat that makes you feel fuller for a longer period of time.

It really is quite sad that the egg, along with dietary fat and cholesterol, has been demonized throughout all these years. The reason for this, of course, is that people were distracted from looking at the real culprit.

There is a real culprit behind America’s ever-expanding waistline. There is a biochemical compound to blame for the obesity epidemic that is gripping the United States, the European Union, and all other areas of the world where there is a large middle class.

This dietary culprit, of course, is sugar, also known as carbohydrates. That steaming bowl of rice that you’re enjoying, or that pile of mashed potatoes, or stack of bread that you normally love to eat, can actually cause more damage to your system than fat. The reason for this, of course, is that people tend to eat more carbohydrates, and carbohydrates are pretty inflammatory. 

When you look at the molecular structure of carbohydrates, it is easy to see why. There are so many attraction points on the surface of carbohydrates that they soak up a tremendous amount of water.

When you eat a lot of carbs, your body soaks up a tremendous amount of water. I wish I could tell you that this is harmless; it isn’t. When you have too much water in your blood, skin, and nervous system, you get inflamed.

Inflammation is bad news. Not only can you develop bad skin, but you also are more susceptible to pimples, and other skin blemishes, as well as wrinkles. Carbs also prematurely age your body. 

You are putting a tremendous amount of pressure on your bloodstream, and this translates to high blood pressure and other cardiovascular issues.

Arising above all of this is the humble egg. The egg has been unfairly demonized throughout the years, but the truth is, the egg is one of our dietary best friends. It definitely should be your best friend if you adopt the keto diet.

It packs a lot of clean protein, which is vital for tissue building and regeneration. It also has a low-calorie footprint, and since it’s loaded with fat, it can make you feel fuller for a longer period of time.
