BIG NEWS COMING THIS WEEK!
We are sending out a separate email so be on the lookout for it!
It’s been a long time coming and I’m excited to finally share!
Dehydration causes many symptoms including fatigue and even higher blood sugar levels! Make sure you stay hydrated. If you feel thirsty, usually that’s a sign your body has been dehydrated for awhile.
STUDY OF THE WEEK — All about Eggs
I wrote an extensive egg article a couple of years ago. The article includes carnivore egg recipes too.
Make sure to check out the full article here: https://nutritionwithjudy.com/the-incredible-edible-egg/
Here’s an excerpt:
There’s no question that the egg is one of nature’s most nutrient-dense perfect foods. It’s also very economical which makes it all that much better. In fact, the egg is so popular that a simple picture of an egg holds the world record for most likes on Instagram (at time of publication, 54M likes).
For a long time, eggs were vilified because of their cholesterol content. Well, in case you didn’t hear, in 2015, the US Dietary guidelines removed the cholesterol and 35% limit on total dietary fat.
There wasn’t enough scientific evidence and no significant relationship between dietary cholesterol and serum cholesterol.
Personally, I always liked eggs but never liked the yolk portion of the eggs. Something about the runny consistency was never something I enjoyed and when I (wrongly) was taught that yolks are high in cholesterol and in turn, would cause me to have high cholesterol and possible heart disease, I was happy to eat only the egg whites for most of my adult life.
Once I became a nutritional therapist, I realized how wrong I was about egg yolks. They are one of the most nutrient-dense foods. The yolk is the substance for the embryo to thrive — no wonder such a small food packs so much nutrition. The yolk is rich in fats, good cholesterol, proteins, iron and other minerals, as well as lecithin and other emulsifiers.
Some believe that egg whites are the main cause of egg allergens. The albumin from the egg whites, with its high protein content, can be the cause of severe allergic reactions such as watery eyes, hives, rashes, redness and swelling, stomach cramps, vomiting, and asthma. It is difficult to say if egg whites are the true allergen as it is nearly impossible to remove all parts of the egg whites, even when consuming just the yolk.
Consuming raw egg whites can also potentially cause biotin depletion in the body. In raw eggs, biotin is bound to avidin whereas when the egg is cooked, the biotin separates from the avidin, allowing the biotin to be absorbed by the body. Biotin deficiencies can lead to seizures, skin disorders, hair loss, severe joint pain and lack of muscle tone and coordination. This may be another reason why some nutrition-enthusiasts choose to only eat the yolk.
Regardless of what part of the egg you prefer to eat, if you can consume the whole egg, I recommend eating them (daily), as eggs are a nutrient-dense food. You can see more of the amazingness that is an egg in the following infographics.
Fluffy Egg Recipe
- 4 large eggs
- 4 teaspoons butter
- salt, to taste
- Step 1: Whisk the eggs together with salt until the eggs are very foamy
- Step 2: Melt the butter over low heat in a pan until bubbling.
- Step 3: Add the whisked eggs, stir constantly, until the eggs are thickened, and creamy (about 2–3 minutes).
- TIP: You should look for moist, even curds.
- Step 4: Remove the scrambled eggs from the heat while they are still shiny
- Step 5: Serve
Sometimes adding a little bit of milk makes it extra moist!
SOCIAL MEDIA HIGHLIGHT
AMINO ACID IMBALANCE IN PLANT PROTEINS
Plant-based is NOT ideal.
🌈What culture has ever lived off plants or eaten the “rainbow?”
💡Humans cannot eat most plants and some of the plants we do eat are bred from the same plant (e.g., Brassica aka wild mustard)
⚠️That’s not the rainbow. It’s one plant.
Something to think about.
Dr. Donald Layman says protein should always be measured by:
⭐️Distribution (timing of meals)
🔎We should also move away from just counting proteins for all amino acid needs.
🔥We prioritize protein because of the essential amino acids. All foods with protein are not created the same when it comes to essential amino acids.
Dr. Layman says that when a child consumes almond milk, there is almost no protein.
🔻Quality is poor (the essential amino acids are lackluster)
🔻Bioavailability is poor
🔻Quantity — then needs to be vastly increased.
💔Almond milk is so deficient in lysine (an essential amino acid) that it would require at least 30 ounces of milk to balance amino acids with cereal.
❓So imagine a child drinking 30 ounces, what else could their little stomachs consume?
🔻Which also then poorly impacts the Distribution of protein needs.
🥀You can see how easily vegetarians and vegans become malnourished.
(and we can do this math with all plant-based proteins).
🥩Just stick to meat. Just 8 ounces of a NY Strip, gives you all of your amino acid requirements in a day. (And 7 g of lysine).

I don’t think I’ve ever done an about me post!
⛑My name is Judy Cho and I’m board certified in holistic nutrition. I’m a nutritional therapy practitioner and the author of @carnivorecure.
🙏🏼I frankly serve because I believe it’s what God has commanded me to do. And I frankly LOVE it.
🥩I have a holistic health private practice where we focus on getting people to root-cause healing, and we usually start with the Carnivore Cure’s meat-only elimination diet.
⭐️Our team focuses on making wellness accessible for all. Our priority is getting our clients to optimal health.
🥀It’s not always an easy journey, but we are right there with them along the journey.
💔And frankly, we get it because we’ve all had our crazy healing journeys that brought us to carnivore.
🙋🏻♀️I was a strategy/management consult for most of my life before my 12-year plant-based diet nearly caused me to lose everything in my life.
I struggled with:
🔻an Eating disorder
🌱I eventually figured out that I was poorly fueling my body (low-fat, high-plant). And once I learned what I learned, I couldn’t unsee what I saw.
📚I went back to school, and as I healed, I promised to serve by sharing what I learned.
So that no one has to go through what I did.
🎙This week I shared a solo podcast episode about my 5-year-carnivore journey.
⭐️ In the episode, I talk about how I’m not here for likes and clicks.
⛑ My mission is for every single person to hear about the powers of meat-only carnivore. And then once we clean up the diet, we can focus on other areas of self-improvement.
✝️ It took my faith and meat to heal me.
Your journey may look different.
🍖But without a properly fueled body, you can never do the hard work to get to root cause healing, and to live the life you were meant to.
🕊We all deserve to live the life we were meant to. We just need to learn the right tools and motivations. And for my desire to share and advocate, I will be a lifelong shaker, challenger and learner.
💫And my wish is that all the grassroots efforts will make a better world for my two young boys.
In ♥️ and the hope for healing,

Summer Sale — Air Oasis
We all want to breathe clean air. Our CIRS clients need to.
The iAdaptAir is one of the best H13 HEPA, Carbon, Silver Ion, Germicidal UV Light, and Bi-Polar Ionization filter on the market, especially for mold.
The iAdaptAir has data on how it’s filter can normalize immunoreactivity to Actinomycetes, one of the biotoxins from water damaged buildings.
I’m sharing because our family recently bought the large one for our living room and a small one for the boys room. We bought it before this sale…
And from what I can tell, it’s the largest sale they do all year long.
