has no effect on LDL
, they are not the same thing. LDL is low density lipo protein. This is a way to transport cholesterol in the blood. If your body is making too much LDL than your body needs it to repair damage. But the cholesterol that you eat is not the same thing as the cholesterol everybody is so worried about. In fact if you eat fresh eggs, your body does not make as much of a special form of cholesterol in the LDL class that is actually THE real so called "bad" cholesterol. When you consume cholesterol in the diet, it keeps your body from panicking and making its own. It is much more important to watch your carbohydrate
intake such as your pasta. The excess insulin
released is very bad for your heart. Much more important than how much saturated fat
or cholesterol that you consume. The only fats that you have to worry about are trans-fats and vegetable oils. Also powdered eggs are much worse than fresh. They contain oxidized cholesterol that is indeed harmful to the arteries.
Do try to buy farm fresh eggs from free ranging hens, from local farmers. If not, buy organic cage free eggs. It does make a difference. Once you try fresh eggs, you will never want to go back.'
