    Yet another ignorant, egg-hating article

    Shop Now
    I'd better start asking myself why on earth I subscribe to the twitter feed of Men's Fitness. According to the article I just read which they posted this morning, which states:

    Whoa, there! Six eggs a day is far too many, no matter how you cut it. An egg has 187 mg of cholesterol, and the recommended limit is 300 mg per day—or only 200 mg if you have diabetes or risk factors for heart disease. “You can probably get away with one egg a day,” says Maxine Smith, R.D., L.D. a dietician at the Cleveland Clinic’s Center for Human Nutrition. “Though if you’re high risk, limit yourself to two per week.”

    Just wanted to give everyone a good laugh this morning. I guess not much has changed in the cholesterol debate overnight.

    Time to grok n roll

    I guess I'm in trouble. I probably eat two dozen eggs a week.

    The thing that really makes me laugh when it comes to these articles is that much of the crap that people eat -- breads, bagels, pastries, etc. -- have egg in it! So, even if they are only eating on egg a day, if they have that stack of pancakes for breakfast and the microwave chicken pot pie for dinner, they're eating a couple of more eggs anyway!

    Apparently our thinking society is still stuck on bland 'health food.' "Unlimited egg whites"!? Who could resist.

    I agree with the article. It's good to keep cholesterol low. It's unlikely Grok would have come across dozens of large eggs every week after the dinosaurs went extinct.

    "...so if you are going to consume an egg every day, have it with salsa, or with spinach and wheat toast."

    That's good advice. The spinach will provide ample minerals and the toast has fiber that will keep you full until lunch.

    Haha! This made me laugh out loud. I thought the same thing, except I think I'll use ghee instead. No wait, actually I think I'll make scrambled eggs, topped with a poached egg. Yea, that sounds about right.
