A panel of nutrition experts hired by the Fed has come up with their diet recommendations/guidelines– and the often vilified coffee and eggs have been welcomed back into the fold.

Apparently even though eggs have a high amount of cholesterol, they can’t find a link between those who eat eggs regularly having a higher incidence of artery/heart disease than those who don’t. They say your  genes play an important role here as some are more genetically susceptible to high cholesterol problems that others. Those who do have health issues with cholesterol as noted by their doc should still refrain from excess.

Meats, especially red/processed meats get a yellow light, meaning we should cut back on this in favor of healthier fare.

The red light goes to sugary processed foods and drinks as high sugar intake is responsible for the rise in obesity, diabetes, and heart disease.
