I have read that the cholesterol in eggs is not the same as in your body, so there is no direct relationship. My brother eats up to 6 whole eggs a day and he just recently lost 5 more pounds to 165lbs (low to moderate carb diet). He used to be McFatty Jr. at 215lbs of lard, while I used to be the McFatty Sr. with 247lbs double lard.[/quote]
a 175lb guy has about 35g of cholesterol in his body. it’s essential for cell structure and the steroid horomones. yea, testosterone.
the liver pumps out 1000mg a day; adjusting for dietary intake (in most people). so an egg has 200mg and is no problem.
the problem for people is LDL cholesterol and that get’s pumped by saturated fats and laziness. genetics can also play a role so those who deal with it have to watch their diet.
for the rest of us, the egg is one of those perfect foods. 7g of complete protein with b vitamins and it’s one of the few food sources with vit. d. read about vitamin d and you’ll start gobbling down eggs.
