My understanding was that it wasn't cholesterol in eggs that was dangerous, but rather selenium. And that while important in moderate doses, you're not meant to exceed 400 micrograms of selenium according to some health association or other... can't remember. Anyway, as long as your hair isnt falling out you should be fine... at least for reasons other than the usual, advancing age and decrepitude

anyway, they're a pretty important protein/nutrient source for me since my girlie is vego, so I tend to eat not all that much meat..

I eat 10 eggs per day, divided in 2 sessions. One 5 egger post workout and one more 5 egger right before bed. Egg protein has high bioavailability, and I like the nutrients and fat especially at bedtime because that's when your body is recovering and making lots of testosterone, which needs fat to be produced efficiently. I've read that while eggs do have high cholesterol, that doesn't mean your body is absorbing it all. Plus my wife works in the cardiac cath lab where we have free insurance through her job, so if I block a mainline to my heart I'm in good hands.

For the most part, a s long as you don't have some outrageous cardiac history or current heart disease, the cholesterol from a few whole eggs per day shoudn't pose such a problem. I usually do as many in the fitness community do and mix whole and whites together to get in the protein while limiting the yolks somewhat.

I went through a period of time when I cut down eggs, because some articles said it was 'unhealthy" Since then, I have added them back into my diet, but it's nice to know the science behind their benefits!

Unless you have a family of heart dx, then may want to limit the yolks, and for years I spent time cracking eggs and throwing out the yolks, this thinking came from the eighties when the medical community said whole eggs were bad and was the major cause for increase lipids and when I competed this was norm, so think about how much muscle building nutrients that were being thrown out last year I started eating whole eggs again and it really is a muscle builder with choline, inositol and cholesterol can be consider a natural steroid(When drug test for steroids they look at the LDL) and I'm 51 yrs old my physical was back in June and my Total Cholesterol is 130, HDL 40 LDL 49,Trigycerides 89 and that on 8 Eggs a days not bad for some with a little dust on top!
