    go get an egg,, say "YUMMY YUMM Cholesterol" crack it raw into your mouth and slurp it down with plenty of Nom Nom Nom noises

    Repeat until they stop bringing up the subject....
    Every time I hear the dirty word 'exercise', I wash my mouth out with chocolate.

    It's really none of your business. Thank you for your concern.

    If that doesn't work, f&*ck off is a complete sentence.

    Play dumb: "I don't think I eat too many eggs. There are so many chickens in the world laying eggs, I doubt we'll run out."

    I do like the earplugs suggestion though. That reminds me of a quote I saw the other day on Pinterest, "Listen, smile, agree, then do whatever the f**k you were gonna do anyway" - Robert Downey Jr.
    I've actually been reading that high carb diets are now being linked to higher tiglyceride levels in many recent studies. If that's their concern, I suggest you pull up a few of those studies to show them that it's not as simple as they think.

    I did this with cream when my grandma was questioning me.

    Her: "You *don't* drink cream by itself?"
    Me: (gulps cream)
    Her: "Nooooo"

    Yes. Do this. If I ever get harassed about my egg intake I am doing this.

    Say: "Actually scientists have recently discovered that the choline content of egg yolk actually protects you from heart disease!"

    They'll probably say "really?! Cool!"
    because A) people blindly trust "scientists" and B) they don't want to admit they have no idea what choline is.

    If they are actually interested then say "yeah, in fact, the toast that most people have with their eggs is what really does the damage. I have this great book/article/website you should read..."

    I cook up a 5 egg scramble and eat it in front of them, with a hearty serving of wild boar sausage, some greens sauted in coconut milk and a cup of coffee. Pretty soon they want some!
