Don’t be afraid of eating eggs. These are healthy foods.

Eggs are not culprits to heart disease; and they alone will not cause high cholesterol levels too. In fact, eggs contain nutrients that helps prevent blood clots and improves heart health.

Eggs are healthy.

Imagine each one of them being a complete supplement for a growing chick. You have your proteins, vitamins, minerals, water and yes, cholesterol - all in one package. The cholesterol of an egg is located in it yolk; while its whites contain mostly water, proteins and other minerals.

Cholesterol in Eggs

Eggs contain cholesterol; but that is hardly a good reason to say no to these health foods altogether.

If you love eggs, however your cholesterol level is on the high end, you can still enjoy eggs by cutting the yolk in half in making your omelet.

Some just eat the whites where the proteins are; missing fats from the yolk.

Some however, don’t quite enjoy eggs fully without the yolks. If you’re one of these guys, go ahead and enjoy eggs as you’d want them.

Just remember to watch your cholesterol intake for the day. Some of the foods or dish to watch for are those with fatty meats, shrimps, crabs and other seafoods.

Eggs are Healthy!

These are tasty, fulfilling foods that you can enjoy any time of the day. You can enjoy eggs for breakfast; make egg sandwiches for snacks; or simply fry them for dinner. Whether boiled, fried on steam, eggs are healthy foods that we can all add in our diets.

Eggs are healthy brain foods. Eggs contain choline, an essential complex vitamin which helps our nervous system function well. It supports our brains and our hearts.

Eggs are healthy eye foods. They contain lutein and zeaxanthin, carotenoids that help take care of our eyesight. These nutrients help prevent degenerative eye diseases like cataracts.

Eggs are healthy weight loss foods. Did you know that an average-sized egg contains just about 68 calories? Having eggs for breakfast beats a bagel or any kind of corn flakes. Eggs are energy-giving foods which you keep you on your feet throughout the day. Eating 1-2 eggs a day helps control hunger pangs in the morning; and is therefore geared towards weight loss.

Don’t be afraid of eating eggs. Eat them every day without guilt.

Eggs are healthy, after all.

      When I first had heart attacks they told me to stay away from eggs. Now the doctor says eating 4 eggs weekly will not hurt a thing. I love eggs so I was glad to hear that. Voted up.

      An egg is almost a complete food in itself -- and loaded with minerals and all vitamins (except for vitamin C). That's the reason why it's recommended food to start your day right. Voted up and awesome (yes, an awesome egg!)

      Wow, rajan! That's a lot of eggs! I only eat 1-2 per day; and that's at least 3 times a week. Eggs are healthy; but I don't want to saturate my buds with eggs all the way!hihihi...

      We buy free-range eggs from a farm in the area and eat them fairly often. Neither my husband nor I have high cholesterol and we've always eaten eggs as part of our regular diet. They're so versatile, too! Thank you for sharing with us.

      First we heard that eggs were bad for you, then there was a reversal that I knew was caused by powerful lobbying. I do enjoy eggs, and know that they are healthy in moderation, so I try to limit how often I eat them.

      Hi arielquiao! True! But still, you have to moderate your over-all cholesterol intake. Eat everything in moderation. :)

      Thanks guys. I really love eggs. That's why I researched on its health benefits.

      @Urmi - Yes. If you don't want the cholesterol, cut the yolk in half.

      @ GN - Eggs are healthy, yes. But too much is also not good. :)
