The Danger of Egg Yolks?

Filed under: General Health, Nutrition, Training

A reader sent me a hilarious video that I think you will all enjoy. It is information like this that simply confuses people and has them question good dietary practices.

Seriously awful. All those terrible monounsaturated fats in eggs, and those terrible omega-3′s. Yes there is some saturated fat too, but that’s not a problem either.

We also don’t want to take into account all of the other nutrients in the egg yolk do we:

  • choline
  • vitamin A
  • vitamin D
  • B vitamins
  • lutein
  • zeaxanthin
  • biotin
  • protein
  • and more!

That is a perfect example of throwing out the baby with the bathwater. Due to the small amount of saturated fat in an egg he is recommending to toss it out, regardless of all of the other incredible nutrients you are tossing out with it. Simply foolish.

Stuff like this happens all of the time in the nutrition field unfortunately. People go to these weird extremes or cling to fad diets looking for the “magic” answer. It’s not there, and it certainly is not about throwing away glorious egg yolks.

On another note my buddy Kevin Neeld released his Ultimate Hockey Training System today along with a cool video describing its awesomeness. In all seriousness Kevin is the Director of Athletic Development at Endeavor Sports Performance in NJ, and he specializes in training hockey players just like Eric Cressey specializes in baseball players.

Kevin works with tons of high school, college and professional hockey players, including some top guys in the NHL and he knows his stuff. To boot I was also fortunate enough to write the Nutrition Guide for this product as I played competitive hockey for the first 20 years of my life. I have also trained and nutritionally counseled high school, college and professional hockey players myself.

This product was created by guys who have not only played the sport at a high level (Kevin played D1 college hockey, I played in juniors), but who coach and work with guys (and girls) who actually play the sport. That is a rare combination and most certainly is a recipe for a kickass product, so if you are in any way involved with hockey do yourself a favor and check it out. To top it all off you actually receive a physical book when you place an order as well as immediate access to the PDF. How awesome is that?

    This guy’s hat was enough for me to take nothing he said seriously. I’m glad he took the time to not only tell me his eggs were going down the garbage disposal, but gave a demonstration to boot!


  2. Ryan Says:

    Maybe if he stopped throwing out all those nutrient rich egg yolks he could afford a shirt too!

  3. Chris P Says:

    …I cook my eggs shirtless too.
