    Yet another ignorant, egg-hating article

    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.

    Same here. Four for breakfast every morning (two whole, two whites) and I only limit myself to the whites to help me better control my calorie intake, not because I'm afraid of cholestorol

    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.

    You know, I have always found scrambled eggs a bit dry for my taste. This totally takes care of so many issues!....

    Oh, and if I don't eat eggs for a meal I still throw back 2-3 raw egg yolks each day (ditching the useless whites). Mmmmm good.

    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.
