First I want to apologize for not getting a chance to respond to some previous questions on my last posts, it was a very busy weekend! I will definitely answer those questions in future posts, as I want to give detailed responses.
I don’t recommend meat for anyone dealing with Body Odor . It is hard to digest, adds unneeded fat and grease to the body, promotes the growth of harmful gut bacteria, and - as we all know – smells f***ing nasty when it begins to break down; having said that, there are cases when it’s impractical and maybe even unhealthy to follow a vegetarian diet.
(If it’s hard for you to follow a vegetarian diet when you think it will help, simply because you like the taste and feeling of eating meat, then you’re just sabotaging yourself and probably need to practice some will power techniques before you get better. That’s not meant to be insulting, just the honest-to-god truth. There is something wrong if you complain about your Body Odor but continue to eat in a way YOU suspect might not be the best. If you have doubts about anything you’re putting in your mouth, you shouldn’t be eating it, unless you’re experimenting with how your body reacts to which foods.)
If however, you find that when you implement a vegetarian/vegan diet you’re low in energy throughout the day, or if you play competitive sports, body build, or do any other strenuous activity often, there is a great way to add those much needed proteins without the harmful effects of most meats.
Pasteurized. Egg WHITES.
Lets start with the obvious:
- Egg whites (or whole, for that matter) aren’t as hard on the digestive system as other, heavier meats.
- Egg whites are a complete source of protein (you don’t ‘need’ any other meats)
- Egg white – when pasteurized – can be eaten raw. I guess eat is the wrong word… you can drink it, as it comes in liquid form. This is useful for anyone with chronic or severe constipation as well as any aspiring Rocky Balboa’s ;)
- Pasteurized egg whites are by definition free of any harmful microorganisms.
BUT WAIT! IT GETS BETTER!
Egg whites are low in choline (TMAU anyone?) - The few of you that have been diagnosed or suspect TMAU will be happy to know that although eggs are high in choline, it is only in the yolk!!
Here is an excerpt from Chris Masterjohn’s blog (PhD in Nutritional Sciences)
“By far and away, most of the choline in these foods is found as phophatidylcholine, a membrane-bound phospholipid. As a result, it's found in the yolk of the egg and not in the white. A 100-gram serving of egg yolk has 683 mg of choline, whereas a similar serving of egg white has only 1.1 mg.” (The Daily Lipid, Cholesterol-And-Health.com)
Egg whites contain the Antibiotic protein Conalbumin as well as the Antibiotic enzyme Lysozyme. They target both gram positive and negative bacterial strains, and actually do tend to fight off the more opportunistic strains in your body while ignoring the beneficial ones. As a matter of fact, Lysozymes play an important role in our innate immune system, and low levels of it are associated with increased disease and infection. I encourage everyone to read up on these.
For anyone taking probiotics, egg whites will go a long way in balancing out your gut flora!!
Of course, it is absolutely, positively, essential and crucial to your improvement that you stop eating heavy meats, sweets, and other foods that you know aren’t helping. No matter how much effort you put into getting better… one day of indulgence can ruin a week or more of hard work.
Thank you all for reading! Have a great night / day, stay positive, and don’t forget to relax ;)
PS: Conalbumin and Lysozymes are ONLY found in egg whites. Lysozymes are also found in our body, but eggs are the only significant dietary source. Wow, could we have asked for a more useful source of animal protein? I think not my friends.
Please share your comments, questions, concerns, etc, thanks again! :)
