Eggs are probably the single cheapest source of protien for your diet. Cholesterol?? Lets just say that for me the debate has not been fully settled. A former Mr. Olympia, champion world bodybuilder, said that fir every three egg whites he wiuld include one yolk. So two egg whites and one whole egg.
Reason?? Without at least one yolk you are missing the vitamins and enzymes and other beneficial ingredients that make an egg a whole food.
My cholesterol readings are very good. So, for me at least, including one yolk is OK. Every person is different. But think about it. To me, whole foods are better than foods that have been processed to have certain ingredients taken out and others, read chemicals, put in. And it doesn't take too much practice to be able to separate egg yolk from egg white.
Make sure you get fresh eggs. Egg white and yolk separation is extremely easy with fresh eggs. It becomes more difficult the older an egg gets.
Hard boiled eggs are easy to separate!! Not too much mayo!!
Check it out. Study, research and ask questions of doctors. I love "dunker" eggs with toast.
