  • This is good info although I'm not a big egg eater
  • Recently I have started to really love the whole egg and I attempt to have 2 for breakfast.
  • I eat a lot of egg whites, but I like to eat real eggs too.
  • I eat several eggs a week as a snack for dieting and have not had any problem with cholesterol.
  • Better that just keeping up with the ACTUAL SCIENCE behind nutrition would be to pull articles like this and fix your quizzes and trivia when they have been proven false so you don't keep misleading your members.
  • You need to stop looking at studies funded by the egg board and look at real science - eggs are NOT good for you. Go to nutritionfacts.org and look around.
  • We love eggs and use them in many different ways. Good for any meal of the day or a snack!
  • Eggs are the perfect food, good for you and so many possibilities for use!
  • liza, you have TWO typos in your article. spellcheck doesn't catch it if it is a real word.
  • " 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!

    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!!!!
  • 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!
  • Eggs are often wiped ,by the producer (not referring to the chicken) lol, but washing before using is a good practice!
  • 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.
