I eat 12 eggs per day, 1 chicken breast, 3 soap spoon of olive oil, 2 avocado and vegetables with some butter. Is that a lot of cholesterol and fat?August 3, 2013 at 7:28 pm #108586

I don’t know for sure, but my suspicion is that your body is going to first and foremost use all of those fats for energy. You aren’t consuming carbs on this diet, which means your body is going to metabolize the fats you consume. There is likely an upper limit to how much to consume per day, but it is important to note your body will be less inclined to store the fat, which is what happens when you consume carbohydrates.
Without the carbs, the body switches its energy source, so the fats won’t stay stored as much in the body.
You need cholesterol for growth/repair and it is essential for the diet to combat Candida. It isn’t the big enemy that it is advertised as by the press. Carbs are the major enemies. Plus by not consuming cakes, cheeses, milk, biscuits, steaks… you aren’t going to have a load of bad cholesterol in your body. Eggs have so many vitamins and nutrients, and the cholesterol is not going to be of primary concern. If you can tolerate the eggs, then good for you.
But just think maybe enough is enough. You shouldn’t need more than 4 (org) eggs per day.
It’s up to you, but cholesterol isn’t a major concern for this diet, your primary objective is beating candida.August 3, 2013 at 7:38 pm #108587

I personally wouldn’t eat 12 eggs per day. I ate maybe 4-6 per day in the foods I ate and I ended up having heart problems, etc. You listed your diet the other day and you need to expand it in my opinion and try to eat twice as many types of food.

Healhy – Why are you eating so many eggs? Definitely not necessary! I try to stick to a dozen a week or less. If you’re hungry, eat more veggies.August 4, 2013 at 2:27 am #108606

holy cow….. even Rocky I think would tell you to take it easy with the eggs…
I know its hard to find foods to eat that are safe and thats probably why you are eating so many eggs. Cause you are hungry and you know they won’t feed your candida but as raster said, you should really try harder to find a few more foods you can eat that are safe.
Maybe some free range chick or wild salmon. Try some rutabaga fries? More salads. Veggie stir fries etc.August 5, 2013 at 12:34 pm #108652

I have 2 chickens and they lay 1 egg a day at best of times, sometimes no eggs, for you to eat that many eggs a day doesn’t seem in harmony with nature. Imagine how many chickens you would have to own to sustain that.

Whoa, that’s a lot of eggs!
I’m new to all of this, but from what I understand, a diet rich with a variety of both vegetables and protein sources is important. That is true for anyone, but especially true for us. Maybe you could try cooking one egg and incorporating that in a tasty salad. And you can mix your greens-lettuces, kale and spinach.
Eating the same thing will drive you crazy, may cause you to abandon your diet and not provide optimum results.August 10, 2013 at 12:50 am #108875

What factors do you think contributed to your heart problem? You mentioned both calcium and eating eggs. For a woman, do you have recommendations to avoid health issues due to the diet?
Thank you.August 10, 2013 at 5:43 pm #108909

Don’t know exact about the cholesterol, my dad told me about new findings in research that cholesterol from egg intake did not result in any clogging or cardiovascular diseases. But then again, he had what seemed like a small clogging in the brain, and he ate a LOT of eggs pr. day before that 🙂
Try to search Pub.Med.
But, that’s not what I was thinking about regarding so many eggs: Try to avoid eating them so much, eating 1 food the whole time on this diet exposes you to allergy (leaky gut, you know)..August 11, 2013 at 7:14 am #108938

There are no links between dietary intake of saturated fats and heart disease. Your body regulates between your intake and what it produces. The majority of the cholesterol floating around your body is actually produced by the liver, no matter how much you consume.August 11, 2013 at 10:50 am #108941

I eat approximately 10 eggs per day for almost 4 weeks (depending if I accompany it with other forms of proteins). So far, I have no problems whatsoever. Eggs contain a lot of cholesterol, but new studies show that high cholesterol intake does not really influence high cholesterol in your blood. Your saturated fat intake will be more responsible for a high cholesterol. I would worry more about the fact that your diet is not so diverse than it contains a lot of cholesterol. To be sure that your cholesterol levels are within the limits, I would advise you to go to a doctor and ask to measure the amount of cholesterol in your blood. That’s the best way to know it for sure.
