Recently I have begun to eat a lot more eggs then usually, usually around 6 whole a day. My dad is freaking out telling me I’m going to die of heart disease blah blah blah. I find some studies that show that eating eggs actually lowers cholesterol serum levels(if anybody wants, I can give links), and he still says, no the American heart association says that more then 2 eggs a week is bad. Infact the only studies I find that support that are by AHA.
I tell him to look at the food pyramid and tell him the history of what we were told. We were told trans-fats were better then saturated, that low-no fat diets are the best, that we need to eat lots of grains, and try not to eat fat, cause it will make us fat, to loose weight, dont eat fat, same with gainning.
Anyway, I convinced him to get a Cholesterol testing kit next time hes at Wal-Mart. I told him if it’s high, I’ll lower my consumption. If its low-normal, I’m right. He then says blah blah blah, I won’t buy you eggs even if its low to normal, it builds up over time. I tell him lets get it tested every three months then. He says that still won’t prove anything.
Does anybody have any idea’s short of getting my chickens? Or buying my own eggs.
This is also the man that looks at my stomach after I eat a huge meal and tells me I am getting fat because I am drinking too much full fat milk. And thinks soy is a god send, maybe that is why he is always in a cranky mood.
