I keep hearing from nutritionists and doctors that egg yolks are now good for you. I have diabetes, the doctors are having a hard time controlling it. I became a vegan for a year. My sugars were still sky high. Can anyone offer any advice it would be greatly appreciated.
In my personal opinion and I am just a 10 old vegan, any animal product is not good for you including egg yolks. There is no doubt that all animal products include egg yolks have some nutritious values but they are also the source of most of the chronical illnesses. They are not just worth it. You can get the same nutrients from plants; so why risk it. If you are not convinced with Dr McDougall's teachings, you may want to read the China Sudy by Dr. T. Colin Campbell. However, I can express my opinion without knowing the details of your situation:
1. Take charge of your health. Find ways to get rid of the medication. The body has the great ability to heal itself. Just give it the right nutrients (naurally plant-based).
2. Stick to basic plant-based food - natural (unprocessed), whole, starch, ... as described in the The Starch Solution.
3. Get in touch with or e-mail Dr John McDougall. I my experience, he always returns his emails (either himself or his assistant).
4. Most importantly, being vegan is not good enough for your copndition. You need to become a McDougaller. Avoid any processed food and beverages - coffee, soft drinks, sugar ( I have not touched sugar for 10 years), ....
Best of luck !
