High Cholesterol: Should You Cut Red Meat and Egg Yolks?

Dear Body Buds,

Controversial topic ahead about cholesterol, so buckle up! I’m going to present an idea about it that may shock you!


For years, many Americans have watched out for red meat, egg yolks, butter, and other foods high in dietary cholesterol. This was due to prior thought that dietary cholesterol was linked to “bad” cholesterol–LDL or low-density lipoprotein numbers rising.

However, thanks to latest research and the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, we know that foods high in dietary cholesterol and saturated fats are not as problematic as originally thought.

Let me say that in plain terms.

All those foods high in cholesterol and saturated fat that you thought were bad for you–shrimp, eggs, beef, full fat dairy, butter, etc. are actually just fine!

But . . .

(you knew there was a caveat–there always is).

Balance is necessary, and it’s easy to do when living the Power Foods Lifestyle! T

here are certain methods to strategically eat saturated fatty foods to achieve optimal balance in your body and help prevent disease.

Learn all about the PFL strategies to help your body lose excess fat, raise energy levels, and LOWER cholesterol in my FREE webinar, “Lower Your Cholesterol for LIFE (without kissing delicious and satisfying foods goodbye!.”

Let’s break this down so all you doubters out there take a seat.

Dietary cholesterol in does not mean blood cholesterol up–point blank. We know that for the greater majority of people, cholesterol is made in the liver from an excess of two things:

  1. Sugar
  2. Trans fats

Shocker! There is no 3 with red meat, egg yolks, and all those other fatty foods. With only a small percentage of cholesterol in the blood being produced from the dietary intake, we must look at the foods that cause the liver not to function optimally. can-i-eat-red-meat

That means your high-carbohydrate, processed foods (remember that carbs break down to sugar and impact blood sugar) that have replaced your high fat foods have not been serving a good purpose.

Remember one of the fundamentals of the Power Foods Lifestyle is we eat to keep blood sugar balanced as much as possible. Protein and fats are more stabilizing, while carbs impact the blood sugar levels and make it more volatile.

We seek to mitigate this by keeping carbs to a “peak range” of 20-30 grams per small meal/snack and pairing it with a protein and veggie source.

“I am not the same person that started this program.   I didn’t know WHAT to eat anymore.  My mind was constantly on food and guilt from eating foods that were making me feel sluggish.  I knew I needed to change, but didn’t know how.  I wanted to be able to help my kids make good decisions with what to eat.  There was so much doubt, fear, and anxiety at first.  There is none now.  I feel like I achieved the goals of losing weight and building muscle, but it’s so much more than that!  I am no longer afraid of food.   I no longer doubt my ability to help myself out of a slip up.  I no longer beat myself up, but rather turn things into opportunities to learn and see how I can turn it into a PVC/PVF meal.  I feel like I have tools, options, realistic options.  I am able to look at my body with gratitude for all the hard work it does for me.  I find myself smiling more.  It’s not just in my food and exercise.  The tools I learned have helped me in so many other aspects of my life to remind myself not to quit on myself, but to believe in myself.” -A. Nielsen

“I went to a doctor appointment today (check up) and I have lost 35 pounds in the last year! I’m not always as strict as I should be, but it seems I always come back to your yummy recipes, and your strategic way of eating. Thank you for teaching me and believing in me for that month of coaching. You will never know how much of an impact that little bit of acknowledgement that you gave me, had on me. It has truly helped me believe in myself. I have learned that no matter where I am in life, or what I am struggling with, I can always overcome it. Thank you so much!” – M. Brooksby
