Why a real breakfast of champions includes the yolk, too.

Never stopped eating whole eggs... that's how nature intended eggs to be.

The BioSync Team's curator insight, November 10, 2013 4:15 PM

Recent studies and progressive nutritionists say it's time to include the yolk in your breakfast because:


  1. Egg yolks are nutrient dense
  2. Cholesterol has important functions in the body
  3. Dietary cholesterol, like that found in eggs, doesn’t raise blood cholesterol
  4. Whole eggs can lead to weight loss
  5. They’re hearty and satisfying

Fat Chance or Fat Choice? | Review of Fat Chance: The bitter truth about sugar | Healthy Recipes and Tips for Healthy Living | Scoop.it

We see many examples of people who have never really engaged with behaviour change and many who have tried hard but failed to achieve any meaningful outcome. So, how do we encourage real, life-changing and long-lasting behaviour change in our patients? When faced with many disappointments, can it even work?

Lustig spends most of the first half of the book explaining why behaviour change alone is so difficult. Our bodies have multiple adaptations to protect our body weight and we do not relinquish it without a fight. This battle is waged day by day in our guts (gut hormones) and our brains (leptin) making sustained weight loss incredibly difficult. Lustig clearly believes that individual behaviour change, while important, is inadequate to fully tackle the global obesity epidemic. Orchestrating this disaster, according to Lustig, is a food environment which has changed dramatically over the last 50 years in the Western World, in parallel to the rise in obesity, and Lustig argues that tackling this aspect of our culture should be a greater concern.

From the article:  It is a striking idea that one of the keys to good health may turn out to involve managing our internal fermentation. But absolute control of the process is too much to hope for. It’s a lot more like gardening than governing.

We are actually "made of" a lot of bacteria; maintaining our gut flora is essential (the goal is to have more beneficial than harmful bacteria).

Mediterranean diet may be best for diabetes

Diets lean on meat and rich in healthy fats like olive oil were most effective at promoting weight loss and lowering blood sugar among people with diabetes in a review of evidence from the last 10 years.

Benefits were also seen with diets low in carbohydrates, high in protein or low in simple sugars.

If a food contains corn, soy, canola or sugar beets, and are sourced in the US, it has a 70-80% chance of containing genetically altered ingredients. Most processed food, many canned and frozen foods contain these ingredients.
