This is very different from nutrition common sense that so many of us grew up. About two years ago I started eating 2 – 3 eggs a day. At the same time I also started doing high intensity workouts. I’ve gotten two physicals in those two years and my cholesterol is right in the healthy range.

This is good news for lacto – ovo vegetarians who are trying to get a good amount of protein each day and stick to whole and healthy foods.

So how do we shift fundamental ideas in society in health and encourage people to make healthy choices, especially when all people have such a personal and cultural relationships to food.
