Busting Myths About Egg Yolks

Q1. Are egg yolks bad for us?

Egg yolks are a true superfood, they are not at all harmful and must be a part of your daily diet.

Q2. Why to incorporate egg yolks in our daily diet?

All the nutritional value of an egg lies within the yolk itself? Yes definitely the egg white is higher in protein but that’s it.

All the vitamins and minerals lie inside the yolk:

a. Egg yolks contain vitamins A, D, E and K along with omega-3 fatty acids.

b. Rich in folate and vitamin B12.

c. Packed with tryptophan and tyrosine.

d. Lutein and Zeaxanthin- 2 antioxidants that support eye and brain health.

e. Decent amount of protein, 2-3g per egg yolk.

Q3. How many egg yolks can I have in a day?

If you are a healthy individual you can even have up to 4-5 whole eggs in a day, provided you do not eat fat laden foods for the rest of your day.

However, if you suffer from some medical condition such as cholesterol or blood pressure then you’d need to limit your whole egg intake, I’d recomend not more than 2 whole eggs per day.

The cholesterol found in egg yolks in not like the ones found in junk and fried foods. It is a form of dietary cholesterol which is beneficial to our bodies and must be consumed to stay fit.

Building muscle just does not requires only a high protein diet, it needs balanced and good nutrition. Testosterone is a crucial hormone which is essential for building muscle, the best way to boost testosterone through your diet is to incorporate good fats in your diet and most importantly egg yolks.

Also, if you are a hard gainer and find it hard to hit your caloric intake daily, then adding whole eggs can easily help you achieve your calorie goal as the yolk is a both caloric and nutritionally dense?
