This post is all about whether or not you can and should eat eggs on the carnivore diet. Well, should you? Do you think you should? What’re inside eggs? What are the nutrient contents?
Do eggs have any fat?
Do eggs have any cholesterol?
How about carbohydrates?
These are the questions we want to address when we are looking at whether or not we should consume a specific food or not.
We should eat what we’re supposed to eat, agreed?
Eggs And The Carnivore Diet
Eggs are animal products. They came from animals. That’s one of the main criteria for what we should eat and what we should not eat.
Most importantly, eggs don’t have any carbohydrates. Carbohydrates are the nutrients that destroy you as a human. If you’re not fat adapted yet and still in ketosis, you’ll remain in ketosis if you eat eggs which is another goal.
Cholesterol and fat are in the yolk. The yolk is the color of gold for a reason. It’s gold for our bodies.
One of the largest diet myths in society today is the intake of Cholesterol. We’ve been taught by society and so-called “expert doctors” that Cholesterol is bad.
Another health-damaging diet myth is on saturated fat. We’ve been told that saturated fat is bad and unsaturated fat is good.
This again simply isn’t true.
Eating saturated fat is what your body needs for fuel. Your body either uses carbohydrates or fat for fuel. Your body wants to use fat for fuel, but if you’re eating carbs, then you won’t.
You will use carbs for fuel and the fat will stack up and will show you the excess fat that is being built up when you look in the mirror.
Let’s summarize this.
Yes, you can eat eggs. Preferably farm raised, natural, organic, non-hormonal fed chickens.
“But they’re $9 dollars a dozen!”
Find a farmer that will sell you eggs. While you’re at it, find a farmer that will also sell you meat and raw milk. That’s the best way to get your food.
