    I eat a lot of eggs daily - including yolk - how bad is this?

    I've read that the safest recommended cholesterol is 300mg, and that one egg has 297mg. I have about 20 a week easily, and because sometimes theyre fried or boiled I will eat the yolk as well.

    how bad is this exactly? (no broscience) any nutritionists here?

    obviously i know that high cholesterol can lead to heart problems but i'm hoping because im relatively young and fit that my body can "dispose" of it higher/more than the average person. am i wrong?

    Should i start limiting the yolks to around 5-6 a week? How many eggs do you guys eat? Do you know anybody with high cholesterol

    Some studies show that higher levels of egg consumption may increase heart disease risk among diabetics. But little evidence is available for an increased risk among healthy subjects.

    Fernandez ML. Dietary cholesterol provided by eggs and plasma lipoproteins in healthy populations. Curr Opin Clin Nutr Metab Care. 2006 Jan;9(1):8-12.

    PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Extensive research has not clearly established a link between egg consumption and risk for coronary heart disease. The effects of egg intake on plasma lipids and low-density lipoprotein (LDL) atherogenicity in healthy populations need to be addressed. RECENT FINDINGS: The lack of connection between heart disease and egg intake could partially be explained by the fact that dietary cholesterol increases the concentrations of both circulating LDL and high-density lipoprotein (HDL) cholesterol in those individuals who experience an increase in plasma cholesterol following egg consumption (hyperresponders). It is also important to note that 70% of the population experiences a mild increase or no alterations in plasma cholesterol concentrations when challenged with high amounts of dietary cholesterol (hyporesponders). Egg intake has been shown to promote the formation of large LDL, in addition to shifting individuals from the LDL pattern B to pattern A, which is less atherogenic. Eggs are also good sources of antioxidants known to protect the eye; therefore, increased plasma concentrations of lutein and zeaxanthin in individuals consuming eggs are also of interest, especially in those populations susceptible to developing macular degeneration and eye cataracts. SUMMARY: For these reasons, dietary recommendations aimed at restricting egg consumption should not be generalized to include all individuals. We need to acknowledge that diverse healthy populations experience no risk in developing coronary heart disease by increasing their intake of cholesterol but, in contrast, they may have multiple beneficial effects by the inclusion of eggs in their regular diet.
    And

    Kritchevsky SB. A review of scientific research and recommendations regarding eggs. J Am Coll Nutr. 2004 Dec;23(6 Suppl):596S-600S.

    For much of the past 40 years, the public has been warned away from eggs because of a concern over coronary heart disease risk. This concern is based on three observations: 1. eggs are a rich source of dietary cholesterol; 2. when fed experimentally, dietary cholesterol increases serum cholesterol and; 3. high serum cholesterol predicts the onset of coronary heart disease. However, data from free-living populations show that egg consumption is not associated with higher cholesterol levels. Furthermore, as a whole, the epidemiologic literature does not support the idea that egg consumption is a risk factor for coronary disease. Within the nutritional community there is a growing appreciation that health derives from an overall pattern of diet rather than from the avoidance of particular foods, and there has been a shift in the tone in recent dietary recommendations away from "avoidance" messages to ones that promote healthy eating patterns. The most recent American Heart Association guidelines no longer include a recommendation to limit egg consumption, but recommend the adoption of eating practices associated with good health. Based on the epidemiologic evidence, there is no reason to think that such a healthy eating pattern could not include eggs.

    whenever I eat eggs I eat them whole and 3-4 eggs at a time. Sometimes my lunch consists 4 eggs and vegetables only for several days. I never believed the myth about dietary cholesterol raising my serum cholesterol levels. As long you have a healthy lifestyle 20 eggs weekly would be fine.

    I have been eating 15 to 20 eggs day, 10 of them whole(at least), and when I had my blood levels were checked, it showed my "good" cholesterol levels being higher then average, and my "bad" cholesterol levels being lower then average. I'm not sure what that actually means, but I feel fit as a fiddle, and actually my best when I stick to eggs! Too bad that their so gross......
