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!
