Eggs and Cholesterol
For a long time, eggs were considered pure evil and doctors were more likely to recommend tossing eggs at passing cars than throwing them into omelette pans. Thatís because just two eggs contain enough cholesterol to put you over your daily recommended value.
Although you can cut out some of that by removing the yolk and using only the white, more and more research shows that eating an egg or two a day will not raise your cholesterol levels. In fact, weíve learned that most blood cholesterol is made by the body from dietary fat, not dietary cholesterol. Thatís why you should take advantage of eggs and their powerful protein punch.
