Eggs are a high protein food. You get a lot for the price.

One egg also contains about 90% of your recommended daily consumption of cholesterol.

If your cholesterol levels are OK, eating eggs is probably not an issue. If they are high, eggs will make it worse.

Egg Beaters are real egg whites with a little food coloring added to make them pretty. They are just OK as scrambled or in an omlet. They fail in a side by side test with real eggs but if you love omlets and shouldn't eat too many eggs, they can work for you.

I just made another quiche last night, and I had the numbers wrong. It calls for four eggs and makes six servings, so there's about 2/3 of an egg per serving.

I'd do a whey or egg white protein powder shake (with berries or your favorite fruit) 3-4 times weekly and eggs the rest of the days.

If you're not afraid of cancer, heart disease, etc, etc then go ahead and eat as many as you want. Why do you think over 1/2 of Americans are overweight (not just eggs, pigging out on junk food and other animal products too)? (See ::: THE CHINA STUDY :::)

Think about this:
What makes doctors, pharmaceutical companies, health book writers, and hospitals more money?
1) People that eat whatever they want and don't really know what's good for them. or:
2) The "health nuts"? (with or without quotation marks--take your pick )


Ooh, I'm gonna get flamed. :D Probably by the mods. ;)

on the other hand, eggs contain lecithin, phospholipids which 'cope' with cholesterol; isn't nature wonderful?? Also note, your body makes most of the cholesterol in your body, your brain is 3% cholesterol, go figure!!

If you didn't want this line seen (original was in grey), why put it at all.

Very nice bowling shirt....but what does any of this do with eating eggs?

Just for the record, I could go weeks without eating eggs myself, no matter whether they are good or bad for you. I just have never liked the texture - though I will have an occasional omelet smothered in hollandaise sauce!

Too much of a good thing, is a bad thing. All things in moderation, eating eggs everyday for breakfast is not such a great idea, they can also be found in a wide variety of other foods you eat during the day which will shoot your daily intake over the limits. Try alternating breakfasts so you don't eat them every day.
Also, your numbers may be good today, but what about 5 or 10 years from now?
