  • liza, you have TWO typos in your article. spellcheck doesn't catch it if it is a real word. - 8/22/2016 10:16:38 AM
  • " people who reported eating four or more eggs per week actually had significantly lower average cholesterol levels than those who reported eating zero to one eggs per week."

    This form of self-reporting doesn't really provide any useful information!! For example: had the people who reported only eating zero to one egg a week previously been told their cholesterol was high and to limit eggs??

    Was that high cholesterol from Grandma, and the doctor five years ago said well, it might be better if you cut out eggs... Its the classic: which came first: the chicken or the egg??? LOL! - 7/7/2016 10:02:22 PM
    Another big fan of eggs here! I usually boil several at the beginning of the week so I can grab and go for mid-morning snacks. If I'm enjoying eggs with breakfast (usually a Sunday-morning thing) - then the yolks have to be runny so I can dip my whole wheat toast into them - yum!!!! - 4/6/2016 6:16:22 PM
  • I have a hard boiled egg for an afternoon snack at work most days. I add a little sriracha, which is great if you like it. But the egg is the perfect snack and has all but eliminated my desire to hit the vending machines! - 3/15/2016 2:29:35 PM
  • Eggs are often wiped ,by the producer (not referring to the chicken) lol, but washing before using is a good practice! - 3/7/2016 10:36:18 PM
  • Eggs are the Perfect Food and the yolk NEEDS to be included with the white because it is the yolk that has the ingredient (good cholesterol) that pushes bad cholesterol out of your system. They also are a good evening meal for diabetics, at least my husband, who finds his morning #s to be a lot better if he has eggs for dinner. As for firm or runny-my yolks will be soft unless they are hard boiled but my husband's will be hard no matter how they're cooked. - 3/7/2016 9:38:45 AM
  • This confirms the findings of my blood work up, year after year. I have an egg for breakfast most mornings . . . eggs really are good food. - 3/7/2016 9:21:13 AM
  • I think this article should have stressed that the yolk was not only the main source of choline in the egg, but the primary source of ALL the nutrition of the egg, with the possible exception of protein of which the white is composed. People think that eating only whites is a "good" thing, but they are getting little nutrition in whites.

    Needing to be on a low histaimine diet, I also would like to point out that, per the instructional materials given to me by my health care professionals, the whites are very high in histamines, but the yolks are a "0" on the histamine level. Therefore, I ONLY eat the yolk. Yes, it took a while to get used to tossing all those whites out, but realizing how adversely they were affecting how I felt, it became easier. - 3/7/2016 8:46:52 AM
  • A chicken that is raised cage free AND given access to natural grazing can not be vegetarian. They eat bugs, mice, small snakes, worms, etc. By nature, this is the way their diet is designed to be. Trying to raise vegetarian chickens sets them up for deficiencies in their own diets which can lead to decreaeed egg production, malformed eggs, and bodily diseases. We raise chickens so we are our own source of information ;) - 3/7/2016 7:21:46 AM
  • eggs fit into our lives easily; boiled, poached, baked, pickled... bfast, lunch, dinner, snack. What a boost. Oh, don't forget egg-nog. hahaha

    eggs are eggs-actly what we use as it still fits into our very tight budget. We two live below the poverty-level, and have over the past 8 years. For us, it is "just what the doctor ordered".

    May the forks be with you.

  • Does Sparkpeople do native advertising? Is there somewhere on the site I can see a list of sponsors? I would particularly like to know if this article is the result of a collaboration or relationship between SP and American Egg Board or another egg group. Thank you. Trying to be an educated consumer; No offense intended. - 12/30/2015 11:39:53 AM
  • If the yolk's not dippy, what's the point?? - 5/4/2015 11:18:38 AM
    I love eggs I eat the whole thing love um - 10/16/2014 6:54:15 PM
  • About 2 1/2 years ago I started raising a small flock of chickens in our backyard. With all of my sons allergies, I thought it would be good to take some control over where some of our food comes from- and what goes into it. I haven't bough eggs from the store in over 2 years and my son loves them - the eggs that is!. With 4 hens currently laying, we have more than enough for the 2 of us, the neighbors get them handed over the fence on occasion, and I sell the rest to co-workers or friends. They all swear that our eggs taste better than what you get in the store and I feel better knowing we aren't eating some chemically processed crap. - 4/29/2014 10:12:05 AM
