Egg whites are among the more common gut irritants and so they actually can cause inflammation. People’s sensitivity varies. I personally rarely eat egg whites, but I will eat 4-6 yolks maybe 3 times a week.
Once again,a 213 total cholesterol with 60 HDL is almost perfect for an adult male. I know that LDL over 120 is usually considered to be high-ish, but that’s only because the recommended total cholesterol is too low. 200-220 is perfect for a man with no personal history of heart disease, diabedtes or a high calcium score. It correlates to better health and higher testosterone levels. Also low LDL can be a sign of chronic inflammation and disease since LDL is used up when you are sick, or have colds or allergies.
Regarding your last point, my wife is a cardiologist. She has to stick more or less to guidelines and most of her patients may benefit from lowered cholesterol since they have mostly already had heart problems, but cholesterol is produced by the body to HEAL microvascular damage. “Trying” to lower cholesterol for someone without a heart disease state is probably not healthy. Anyway, I mentioned my wife, because I have seen how ACA and AMA recommendations have actually followed, NOT LED modern nutritionists, and it has tended to trail by a decade or more. Only about 3 years ago the AMA and ACA decided that fat was not inherently harmful and that there should be no daily maximum for fat as long as total calories are in target. This was espoused by nutritional science 15-20 years ago. The AMA and ACA STILL officially consider high linoleic oils to be healthy because they reduce cholesterol, but believe me, doctors who have kept up with the science rather than preaching guidelines started excluding high linoleic oils over a decade ago at least in their own diets. Those who haven’t kept up still recommend “healthy plant based oils” which happen to be pro-inflammatory omega-6, but YES, they do lower cholesterol.
You will never be able to get proper nutritional advice from someone in medical practice IMO because the nature of medical science is to proceed slowly, and also not to tell eveyone that they’ve been given bad advice for 30 years about saturated fat, whole grains, cholesterol lowering foods etc.
Doctors are decades behind on real nutritional research.
Regarding eggs, my wife mentioned to me the other day of a recent study that showed no harms or improved status in patients who ate 3 eggs per day. The study showed a progressive trend of better health markers for individuals eating 1, 2 and 3 eggs per day for 2 weeks. At the end, they made a point that this did not demonstrate anything about the potential harms of eating 4 or more eggs a day.
Plus, the “markers” generally referred to are constantly changing. Simple fact, most of the improperly developed dietary guidelines are based on one simple flawed theory, the cholesterol model of heart disease. The model is debunked in almost 100% of cases, but its derivatives persist-if a food lowers cholesterol it can be labelled as hearth healthy.
