Wer'e not cookie cutter creatures. Some people are prone to cholesterol problems. There bodies produce more cholesterol. Some people can eat whatever they want and have hardly any problem. What is harmless to you may be a heart attack waiting to happen for someone else.

I don't pretend to know what eggs do or don't do to your cholesterol. But the fact is you just can't generalize your cholesterol values to the general population; or compare them.

I go with the yolks, good source of low-cost high-quality protein.

I would say that unless you are trying to JUST cut, then eat the whole egg. Again, unless you are on a stricly CUTTING diet, then you want to eat the yolk also.

Default yoke

If I'm having eggs for my first meal I'll usually have 8 whites and 2 maybe 3 yokes. most of the protein is in the white. the yoke is where you will find cholesterol and fat however; there is a healthy fat and one not found anywhere else that the body needs. But I'll be damed if I can remember the name or se at the moment...guess I'll have to check my notes for that one.
go ahead and have a couple yokes... I have never had a cholesterol problem with this breakast menu and I ask for it to be checked every year...

I dunno you also get the cholestrol which can be fatal in terms of shredding down.

So do you guys eat the yolks or just whites? Besides adjusting your diet to calculate the extra calories, it seems to make sense to eat them whole. I think I am going to make the switch to whole eggs unless anyone can convince me otherwise :P
