    Replace a hard boiled egg yolk with avacado? What does that accomplish? Yolks are the nutritious part of an egg and you aren’t saving any calories.

    • Stephen said:

      The calories may be the same, but you will save a lot of cholesterol. One egg yolk has almost 200mg of cholesterol, which is on the high end of what a person should have in a day. An avocado has 0mg of cholesterol, by comparison. Calorie-wise though, the two are probably pretty close.

      • Garrett K said:

        Cholesterol is necessary for our body’s proper working. Our hormones are created from cholesterol. If we don’t get cholesterol from food sources, it causes our bodies more stress in order to create it in our bodies.

        I call utter BS on 200mg’s of cholesterol being on the ‘high end’ of what a person should have in a day. PiYo’s meal plan has eggs being the second highest protein. Whole eggs. 2 eggs per protein. 7 proteins per day. Sardines are the highest.This whole ‘fat scare’ and ‘cholesterol scare’ needs to stop. It’s completely unfounded, and is really over.

        Low fat and low cholesterol = chemical and hormonal $#!tstorm. Stop promoting that.

        Also, there are multiple types of cholesterol, just like there are multiple types of fat. All cholesterols are not created equal. Eggs Yolks contain good cholesterol. They’re pretty much THE healthiest food on the planet. The cholesterol in Egg Yolks balances out and reduces bad cholesterol. They’re something more people ought to be eating.

          Awesome response! a great book too is Eat the Yolks by Liz Wolfe. Ive been living a paleo lifestyle with plenty of high fat foods and my cholesterol is really low. My dr put me on to it. My numbers are amazing. Obesity and cholesterol spiked with the advent of low fat foods and more complex carbs in the 50’s. People need to look at science and not get lost in old standards

          • Garrett K said:

            Thanks! 🙂

            I’ve seen so much ‘fat bashing’ when it comes to foods with fats. Especially eggs. I’m always confused as to why people take out the egg yolks. Eggs are essentially THE perfect food. 🙂

            And you’re right. Obesity really started when people started buying into the ‘low fat’ mentality.

            Hint to people – A significant portion of our brain is made of fat…. our hormones are made of fat… don’t cut fat out of your nutrition. It’s bad news for your body and your mind!

    I love and appreciate the time and thoughtfulness of all the individuals that helped make up this wonderful list! I love it when nice people do nice things for others … My husband diagnosed recently with type II diabetes and to say the least we were shocked and now in search for the right foods to replace some of the bad habits… Did I say we thought we were doing everything right and it sometimes is still not enough… Be kind and appreciate the hard work of others… 🙂
