Facebook Group Discussion
One of our Facebook group members posted a question last week about progress. She’s been following a keto diet for a few weeks and has noticed minor improvement but not the complete cessation of migraines in that time.
Her post sparked a great discussion from our members, who advised her to break rebound first and told their stories of progress.
We know you’ll want to read more of this great discussion in our Facebook group.

An excerpt from The Chatter:
A: That’s a great question (and also one that highlights the absurdity of recent conventional wisdom, where for years we’ve told people to just eat the whites to avoid the “cholesterol” in the yolk and be healthy).
Anyhow, I love adding the egg yolks to my smoothie. I think of it as both a rich source of protein, and as my natural multivitamin, as egg yolks are about the most nutrient dense things we can consume, given that they contain all the raw materials needed to build a vertebrate mammal (and are easily digested).
The whites, on the other hand, are primarily protein, without all the other accompanying nutrients. They also contain nutrient binders, so consuming whites with the yolks will likely reduce the amount of nutrients absorbed from the yolk.
That said, it’s not a huge deal to consume the whites as well, it just may prevent you from getting the maximum goodness from the eggs.
Whites, as it turns out, are actually made better by cooking, while yolks are most healthful when eaten raw (but I’m not advocating against cooked egg yolks by any means…). So when Jenny and I cook eggs, we don’t separate the whites (I prefer to cook mine “over easy” – that will you still get a runny yolk, but the white is cooked).
And a final disclaimer: as you know, cooking the egg will reduce the risk of infection from bacterial contamination, etc. When eating raw eggs, I prefer to get them from a local source with pastured hens. Been eating them almost every morning for roughly 3 years, without any micro-organism induced digested upheaval.
