So, enough with the description, let's get down to the yolk and crack this puzzle:
How Does an Egg Fast Work?Ibreathimhungry.com
So I did some additional research this week to try and figure out why this keto egg fast diet works, and found an interesting article on the importance of Choline in liver function over on The Daily Lipid. It seems that egg yolks are extremely high in Choline, which as it turns out is critical to our liver being able to metabolize fat.
In fact, when Choline is deficient (as it is in much of the modern US population), it can lead to Non Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease – this means your poor, fat, lazy liver can’t even handle it’s own business – let alone helping rid the rest of your body of excess fat!
Don't think this “egg fast” doesn't work – eggs are a perfect keto food, and if Melissa has tested things out, you know this will give you the result you are looking for.
Also important to helping your liver metabolize fat are Casein (present in cheese and other dairy products) and an amino acid called Methionine. Guess what food has the highest amount of methionine in it? Egg whites! So between the massive amounts of Choline in the yolks, and the bounty of Methionine in the whites, eggs are pretty much the perfect liver food – add some Casein in the form of cheese, and you’re in business!Ibreathimhungry.com
Ready to give the egg fast a go? Funny enough, but there's even a dedicated facebook group for this activity – go figure! They can cover the low carb high fat strategy and more.
