this is so interesting. let's start with cholesterol. >> so interesting. there is no longer a limit on dietary cholesterol. so previously we've been told to limit our intake to 300 milligrams per day. now the scientists removed the limit on dietary cholesterol. we've always really known this. as a nutritionist when i was training at brigham & women's hospital, we were told dietary cholesterol does not have the same impact on blood cholesterol as saturated fat. it's just that now the government is catching up with the science. so that being said, you can enjoy your eggs, but you want to limit your saturated fat to 10 percent of calories. foods that are high in cholesterol and saturated fat need to be limited. like butter and fatty meats. eggs and shellfish are okay. if you like lobster -- dari: the yolk is okay? >> it is. it's a great source of antioxidants and protein. dari: and lobster.
a good thing, then a bad thing and now we're putting it in a better light. same with coffee. coffee we've had all sorts of different opinions on over the course of my lifetime. >> it's fascinating. the research shows coffee can be beneficial for our health, particularly when it comes to reduced reduction for diabetes and possibly protective against parkinson's. the researchers found that three to five cups of coffee per day is considered safe for the exactly. and you can enjoy your coffee. again, if you have high blood pressure, if you have a heart condition -- dari: or it makes you anxious. >> as long as you're drinking enough water as well, it's not necessarily going to deplete you there have been -- steve: you're better off having had the coffee than not having had the liquid? >> i always say if you're concerned, have tea, which is a little lower in caffeine. somewhere in the middle. dari: if you think that means you can add the half and half and the sugar, forget it.
mandatory evacuation. -- recommendation. let's talk about salt. >> limit sodium to a few milligrams per day, about a teaspoon. it's nothing. but again, this applies to healthy populations. so if you have high blood pressure, if you're older or if you have other risk factors, if you're sodium sensitive. you want to limit to 1,500 milligrams. this is in the fine print of the dietary guidelines. sodium, 2300 milligrams. when you read the fine print, a lot of the advice applies to different individual groups. it depends on your health risks. dari: we're running out of time. we have two huge beefs. sugar. let's talk about that. >> for the first time ever, there's a limit on added sugars to 10% of calories. what that means, if you're following a 1600 calorie diet, many people i know do, you would max out just by consuming one
watch the added sugars. steve: the added stuff is bad. >> exactly. steve: and meat. >> this is really interesting. in the report that was issued, which serves as the basis for the guidelines, researchers found that it's helpful to limit red and processed meats, but it didn't make the final cut with the recommendations. steve: was that pressure from the meat industry? let's be real. it's a powerful lobby. that's how it works. >> if you read the fine print of the report, which i did, you will see that they do say that limiting red and processed meats, especially poultry, is a good idea. it can decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease. dari: you heard it here from a nutritionist. the fda won't say it. [indiscernible - talking over one another] >> don't get me in trouble. steve: fair enough. thank you, lisa.
we could walk through the winter like this. nick: it would be great if we keep this going. we won't. the next few days will be like this and milder over the weekend. that will come with a price when the clouds come back and the threat of rain over the weekend. it will turn colder and stay colder for an extended period of time. today, 46 in new york city. not bad for early january. 45 in philadelphia. 39 albany. that's nice for them. buffalo, 40. 46 pittsburgh. 43, washington, d.c. there's fox 5 sky guardian. quiet tonight. have some clouds that have moved in. you can see them on the satellite photograph. the clouds will brush by us here as we go through a chunk of the night. nothing really will happen out of that. we'll be back to sunshine tomorrow. it will be battling the clouds again, particularly as we get into the afternoon. current temperatures cooling down quick north and west. 32 at monticello. 33 at sussex. 41 allentown. mid 40s around the city. 41 islip. upper 30s jersey shore to the east end. bridgeport, coming in with 38.
