  • How healthy are eggs

    Hey I am in the process of going primal but made an omlette today and saw that eggs have about 80% of daily cholesterol. I ate 2 and mixed it with egg beaters. How much cholesterol/fat is ok? I have read about people eating like 6-8 eggs/day. What are the effects on heart eating primal with this much cholesterol?

    Thanks,

    I am in the process of going primal and still researching it.

        I eat about 20 a week, all at least free range chickens fed something like Flaxseeds to increase the eggs Omega-3.

          1. Cholesterol doesn't cause heart disease http://thehealthyskeptic.org/cholest...-heart-disease
          2. Eating cholesterol doesn't cause high cholesterol http://www.physorg.com/news139156140.html http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/content/full/75/2/333
          3. I think that 2 or 3 is healthier than a dozen a day. And I also think that they absolutely should be pasture-raised free-range or omega 3 flax-fed eggs. But in that case yes, very healthy. Eat up.

                  Ever see the movie "The Human Centipede"?

                  I do the same thing, but with Chickens. Delicious eggs straight into my gullet all day every day.

                      Eggs are one of the most nutritious things you can eat. I go for 15-25 a week. Make sure they are at least organic. Pay the extra $1 for true pastured eggs if you can.

                      Or, find a farm that you can buy in bulk from. In a week or 2 when I visit this farm up north I will be getting 10 dozen (or more) of true pastured eggs for $2 each. AWESOME deal!!

                          That's a lot of eggs. Is this you in the movie clip? (-:

                            Holy ****, that's a dozen eggs a day! Do you eat anything else at all?

                              12 large eggs are only 75 grams of protein. That is half of what I need. I eat plenty of meat on top of that.
