    My cholesterol profile is excellent and I sometimes eat up to six eggs a day. Eggs will increase your HDL, if anything.
    Steak, eggs, potatoes - fruits, nuts, berries and forage. Coconut milk and potent herbs and spices. Tea instead of coffee now and teeny amounts of kelp daily. Let's see how this does! Not really had dairy much, and gut seems better for it.

    I run hot and cold on eggs. I either eat none, or I eat a half dozen or more a day. I just don't worry about eating eggs, they are one of the healthiest foods out there.

    I know some folks eliminate them if they're doing a super strict allergy elimination protocol, but other than that, I wouldn't be concerned about them. Dietary cholesterol has not been shown to promote serum cholesterol. Plus, the more we learn about cholesterol, the more we have learned that it's more about the particle size of the LDL you have than total cholesterol.

    Some eggs are good for you, others are okay for you. Certified Organic eggs, for example, contain 10x the amount of Omega-3 and 1/10th the amount of Omega-6 that a normal egg contains. If you plan to make eggs a staple of your diet, like I do (just call me an egg-sucker, har har har), then ensure that you buy high quality eggs. The easiest way to tell an organic cage-free egg from a traditional egg is to crack it. Cage-Free Eggs (the eggs with the high omega-3), willl have a much thicker shell and be more difficult to crack. Those are the eggs you want.

    I eat 6-12 of them a day. I don't have any proof that I have no negative effects from it though. Organic cage free btw.

    An egg is not an egg. Make sure you're buying eggs from free range chickens. Factory farmed eggs shouldn't be allowed to be called eggs. There's a great comparison here Eggs: Nutrition Comparison Between Factory Farmed and Free Range
