High-fat feeding can cause impairments in the functioning of the mesolimbic dopamine system

This system is a critical brain pathway controlling motivation.

This is your brain on fried eggs: Brain, motivation and eating a high-fat diet


I start my day with fish oil and a couple other healthy fats . . .


Damn you @notmoses. Just when I was starting to enjoy eating eggs again.

Certain types of research should be banned on the basis of sucking the joy out of life. :frowning:


You are hereby permitted to eat all the eggs you want… so long as you’re willing to live with the upshots. (Well… that’s how I had to learn… that… too much of a good thing may not be.) (Sorry. Call me, “Doctor Doctrinaire.”)

I was happier when I wasn’t aware of the upshots. Jerk!

@SzAdmin, ban this guy, wouldja?!?

I think we can still enjoy our eggs.

Only 5 grams of fat in 1 egg.

Compare that to the 33 grams of fat in a hamburger like a Big Mac

I think Steaks and hamburgers are really the culprit here…

Oh ye of little imagination:

I’m the guy who serves ‘burgers’ made with breaded, deep-fried chicken breasts as the buns. Oh, and they’re loaded with bacon too. And a fried egg, because, shrapnel.

My stomach has exploded.

OMG - thats not really something you’ve made is it?

Is it the eggs or what the eggs are cooked in(as in the case of fried eggs) that is the problem? Are we talking occasional fried egg consumption. moderate fried egg consumption, or heavy fried egg consumption?
Surely occasionally having something that’s not on the approved list will not topple the health apple cart.

If one doesn’t have GERD, no. But if they do

Most people have occasional heartburn or indigestion but what would qualify as a diagnosis of GERD?

No. You’ll know what GERD is if you ever get it. It hurts like hell.

Yessir. Bacon weave meat loaf is also excellent. My candied bacon carmel ice cream is also especially nice.


Some good news for you :smile:

Scientists have found a seaweed that tastes like bacon

Ha ha ha NO. For the record, I didn’t believe the X-ray tech when she told me that the barium would taste “just like a chocolate shake”. I’ve struggled with delusions, but not to that extent.
