Dewi Tina Thank you for sharing your advice. This advice of yours really hits home. Chih Chiang Nieh Thank you for sharing your input about the topic. I see that you draw the line at consuming 2 eggs per day. Each clinician has his/her own limit in terms of advising patients how many eggs to eat. The AHA still recommends not to go ...

Maria Cristina Inserto Always great to hear from an avid fan of eggs. Eggs are truly associated with breakfast because it is one of the easiest but most nutritious food to prepare. Its versatility is also one of the reasons why it is a commonly used ingredient for cooking, baking, pastries, and other types of desserts. I agree with your statement that everything should have a limit including intake of eggs. AHA sa...

Like I had mentioned previously, everything should be in moderation. Eggs prove to be a highly nutritious source of food and for young people especially toddler and children, this is a very important source of protein and lipid. However, as one gets older, we worry about cardiovascular complications and hence try to cut down. For myself, I eat the egg white - albumin, but I leave out the egg yolk - which is high in cholesterol. This could be an option too. Whatever it is, it is not recommended t...

I sincerely love eggs. It doesn't matter if it's scrambled, fried, hard boiled, poached etc... I may not eat breakfast, but I love breakfast food. And eggs always remind me of breakfast. I think it's safe to assume that with all things, there is always a good limit, so one cannot have too much of even the good thing. I heard before that 1-2 eggs per day is fine, but some articles say that 6 a week is a healthy ceiling. Maybe keep it to one egg a day? But some omelette meals use about...

Priscilla Mae Gobuyan Thank you for sharing your thoughts and our rich breakfast culture to others. Filipinos love to pair breakfast sausage, cured sweet meat (tocino), or marinated beef tenderloin strips (tapa) with egg and fried rice. A lot of people consume eggs for breakfast in the Philppines and most meet the daily recommendation limit of one egg by the American Heart Association. Eggs have long suffered the...

joey ymphan Thank you for sharing your opinion on the right frequency of egg intake. To err on the ultra safe side of discussion, consuming one egg every other day will be safe for the general population. It is not expected to cause elevation of cholesterol levels. However, experts on cardiology agree that even consuming one egg everyday will not lead to dyslipidemia and hypertension. As mentioned in the discussi...

This article simply says it all. Thanks for sharing this. I do love eggs too and I can live with these "silog" meals all day. Silog meals in filipino are called breakfast meals accompanied by fried eggs together with either beef tapa, chorizo, hotdog, meat loaf or anything else. Yes we have this wrong notion that overconsumption of egg may affect our cholesterol levels then eventually cause heart ailments. Well this article has briefly summed it all with the benefits of eggs. Consuming...

You Yi Hong Thank you for sharing your thoughts about the topic of daily egg consumption. You consume on the average about 2-3 eggs a week which well within the AHA guidelines. Yes, I agree with you that a lot of people avoid egg because they say it is rich in cholesterol. However, they are not aware that most of the cholesterol is HDL. It is similar to the stigma for avocado containing too much fat. However, fat...

It is an interesting article about consuming eggs !! Personally, I don’t eat eggs on a daily basic. I would eat maybe around 5-6 eggs every 1 to 2 weeks. Egg is a very nutritious food. It is a very important element for the diet of public. A lot of people do afraid about the high cholesterol content in the egg yolks. As mentioned in the article, consuming the cholesterol is quite important as part of our daily diet. We should generally include diet in our regular diet. But, we should not consum...

Marinelle Castro Thank you for stressing the points of why we should have reservations when it comes to egg consumption. It is true that consuming 30-40 eggs per week is something that I would not recommend to patients. Current American Heart Association Guidelines state that intake of one egg a day is safe for people with normal blood cholesterol levels. I would have to agree though that the manner of cooking ma...

Mark Edmon Tan Personally I consume about 3-5 eggs per week, although 5 is a rarity. Since there is conflicting evidence regarding the benefit and harm that egg consumption poses, then its safe to consume eggs in moderate amounts. Those who have a genetic predisposition for dyslipidemia, should have themselves checked and closely monitored. The author shared her experience in consuming about 30-40 eggs per week, ...

I like the one you stated about eating egg with green leafy curries. Egg-based desserts are really delicious too such as custard and creme brulee. I could go on with mentioning really great egg recipes but I will go to t...

There is no doubt that eggs are very nutritious food and it must be included in our daily diet especially in breakfast. There are controversial stories about the eggs as few people believe that eggs can cause hypertension while other say that eggs can elevate blood cholesterol level. The fact is that eggs are rich in protein and cholesterol but that does not mean cholesterol is directly mixed in the blood. Cholesterol in the body is used to make steroid hormones in the body like testosterone, es...

It is stated in this article that you can eat as many as 3 eggs per day without having to worry about you bad cholesterol levels shooting up. I'd say that this can be true if these are boiled eggs. The manner of cooking can make a difference. Eating 3 fried eggs is entirely a different story than having them boiled or poached. This article even says that it is actually beneficial to our health to have more than 1 egg per day. I think eating 1-2 eggs is ok but i was completely blown away by t...
