How about eggs!

Postby Frenchmaid1969 » Thu Dec 30, 2010 11:43 am

(Is there any true to this because i eat a few egg a week)I just read that One egg has more cholesterol than Double Down

For anyone watching their cholesterol, Canadian researchers say eating a single egg could be more harmful than munching the current king of fast food indulgences.

According to a new report published in the Canadian Journal of Cardiology, one egg yolk can contain more cholesterol than a KFC Double Down sandwich.

Compared to the 150 milligrams of cholesterol contained in the now-famous sandwich comprised of bacon, cheese and sauce sandwiched between two pieces of deep fried chicken, researchers say a single egg can contain between 215 and 275 milligrams. A Big Mac contains just 75 mg of cholesterol, while a footlong meatball sandwich from Subway packs 90 mg.

He says a large Canadian egg has 195 milligrams of cholesterol and the Double Down, according to the nutritional information posted at kfc.ca, has 150 milligrams of cholesterol. As well, the Double Down has 30 grams of fat and 540 calories. A large egg, on the other hand, has 5 grams of fat and only 70 calories.

Go for egg whites not the yolk.
yolk is bad that too in large quantity.
my preference is 5 egg whites 1/2 egg yolk

Egg Yolks contain roughly 60% HDL Cholesterol and 40% LDL Cholesterol.

Read my sticky on Cholesterol, it should still be here. Then you'll understand the difference between the two Cholesterol types and how good or bad they are, depending on thier amounts in the body.

Over the course of a year and a half I lost 30 pounds and lowered my cholesterol by 40 points, all the while eating two eggs every morning. I don't believe there is a direct correlation between the cholesterol we eat and the cholesterol our body generates. An overall "healthy diet" and excercise are the most important.

I don't think that a few eggs per week will harm you any. It's not as if it's processed food which, in my opinion, is far worse. I sometimes eat 3 eggs in one breakfast with a slice or two of wheat toast and a glass of orange juice or low-fat milk. Sometimes I throw out a single yoke, sometimes I don't. An in-law of mine has a cholesterol problem which is completely genetic. He has to be extremely careful how much cholesterol he gets from food. His will go up extremely high and very quickly. For most, it really isn't a major issue unless they're just hyper-consuming it. If you were eating them every single day that might be a problem, depending on how many you were eating and what your body could handle. But, "A few a week"? I say, go for it... as long as you don't have any preexisting medical condition. They're a very healthy food source. Besides, there are much worse sources that you could be getting your cholesterol from.

If you're bothered, use Omega-3 Eggs, (Chickens fed Flax), as this can have a Cholesterol lowering effect.

Don't be concerend by Cristinas post Frenchie. She may have made the choice to stop eating eggs consciously, not necessarily in light of her medical circumstances.

If she felt stopping Eggs may have been beneficial thne fine, but you shouldn't necessarily stop eating them, unless you want to, or have been specifically told to for good reason(s), by a credible medic.

Hi everyone,
Many of us misunderstand what actually the cholesterol is.Cholesterol is a waxy steroid metabolite found in the cell membranes and transported in the blood plasma of all animals.It is required by our body in some amount.Egg is rich in protein and healthy so some body told you wrong there is no medical proof behind this claim.
