    High cholesterol. But other than that, they're good. If you only eat one yolk then you should be golden. Eat all the egg whites you want.

    one yolk is about 70-85% of your cholesterol needs for a day. You should limit yourself to about 300mg Cholesterol in a day. Not to mention, all the fat from an egg is in the yolk.

    As long as youre healthy and youre not eating a bunch of other crap like fast food eggs arent much of a worry.

    Cholesterol level has a big genetic component as well. The 300 mg per day is a good average guideline. "Average" being the operative word.

    they say your body doesn't digest/consume the cholesterol in eggs very well and it's passed mostly anyway

    how the cholesterol effects you all depends on your hdl/ldl count in your bloodstream.

    I will rather have 4 whole eggs a day than a big mac everyday thats for damn sure though.

    egg yolks contain good cholesterol but are mainly fat. i eat 5 eggs and remove 3 yolks. that gives me the amount of protein/fat ratio i want when combined with some fiberous bread. I actually probably want less fat but the yolks taste so damn good!

    don't worry so much about the cholesterol. blood cholesterol is controlled mainly by genetics. Dietary cholesterol intake only plays a small portion of it. There are guys here with normal cholesterol who have 6-7 eggs/day.

    that being said, if you do have a high dietary cholesterol intake, might wanna have a doc do a cholesterol check to make sure your diet isn't fucking ya.
