5-6 a day. Realistically it makes no difference even if you eat a dozen a day for weeks. I did that for a month and just didn't want to eat them anymore..lol. But i scaled to 4-6 a day.

This is correct.
Cholesterol in food doesn't equal cholesterol in the body. Also overall cholesterol is a crappy marker of health.

I was eating 6 whole eggs a day and I was fine, so it all depends on your body and how you react to it. If your worried try for a month and the get bloods. You will know by then if an issue.

I eat eggs all the time and my cholesterol levels are in check. I enjoy eggs usually at least once a day.

According to me its nit bad. People think that eggs are bad for you because they contain cholesterol. But eating 2 eggs a day is absolutely fine. Eggs are low in saturated fat, good source of protein. Only 25% of cholesterol in your body comes from your diet, so it is unlikely to give you a problem unless you have high cholesterol already.

Cholesterol = Immune system/hormones. Why do you think the docs want to lower it?

Cholesterol raises in the presence of stress/crap we do to protect our body. So taking care of all the causes of high cholesterol are what will fix it. But honestly, for most people on this forum who train have nothing to worry about. I've had 5 eggs everyday for idk how long, and if i overdue it like i have before (12 eggs daily/3-4weeks at a time), the most is the body lowers it's natural production. Unlike synthetic compounds, the body rebounds back at goes to normal production even after chronic over consumption. So, the 25% that comes from diet raises and the other lowers.

Only thing I would worry about is oxidation of the cholesterol... That's a questionable area with people saying have them only raw or lightly cooked, and others saying scrambled are ok. To be the safe side id have the yolks raw (if organic), otherwise sunny side up, soft boil.
