Tuesday, October 09, 2007 6:23 am Email this article
In his new new book Good Calories Bad Calories, Gary Taubes writes that foods that you can eat as much as you want of as advocated by low-carbohydrate advocates include:
- Meat, fish, birds
- All green vegetables
- Eggs, dried or fresh
- Fruit, if unsweetened or sweetened with saccharin, except bananas and grapes
Comment: Eggs make me fat
Comment: Eggs make me fat.
I love eggs and have tried several times consuming practically an all egg diet—20 or 30 scrambled eggs a day—as part of a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet.
But when I have done so, I have always found that after a few days I look in the mirror and think, “Oh my god! Look how fat I am!”
So the idea of eating as many eggs as you want as a way of helping you lose weight has not work for me.
