I'm writing this at the start of the year when faddy diets are EVERYWHERE!
For example, a while back someone told me that she’d heard that drinking only cabbage juice for a week could cure IBD (it can’t, just in case you were wondering!).
Less ridiculous, but still not all that sensible, a friend of mine once told me that part of her new “diet” involved her starting each day with an egg white omelette.
Eggs white omelettes (which is, for those who don’t know, an omelette with the yolk removed) is a bit of a craze that started in the bodybuilding world.
The thinking behind this is that the egg white is the bit the contains protein, and the yolk (the tasty bit) contain the fats.
So by taking the yolk out you remove the fat and it gives you less calories.
However, aside from the fact that an omelette without any yolk doesn’t sound appealing at all, there is generally no need to avoid the yolk.
Yes it contains fat.
But that’s not a bad thing.
And yes it contains cholesterol.
But that doesn’t mean you are increasing your risk of heart disease or anything else (that is a BIG myth that even doctors are struggling to understand, despite all the studies proving it to be the case).
Fats are incredibly important for your health.
While the yolk in eggs can be a great way to get some of those fats, another fantastically healthy fat are omega 3 fats is fish oil.
