Okay, so we all know that eggs are this shit for gaining mass. High quality protein, essential nutrients, etc. As I am not that concerned with being super-ripped, and especially as I am trying to gain this summer, I have been eating almost all my eggs yolk-in (i.e. not just the whites). My question concerns the amount of cholesterol in the yolks. I know the yolks have all kinds of great nutrients, (plus they contain 1/3-1/2 of the protein in the egg) in them but I'm concerned with the amount of cholesterol I'm taking in (4-5 eggs at a time is supposedly about 200% daily cholesterol on a 2k calorie diet, which for me would be about 100-125%). Is the cholesterol contained in the yolk the "good cholesterol" which we hear about, or am I doing my body more harm then good by eating that many? Thanks.

Yes mate, its good, I`d keep in the yolks without a doubt.

eat some oatmeal with them eggs. oatmeal is good for lowering cholesterol. and it will make you big and strong.

from what i hear it depends on your age. if your a young'n like me all that cholesterol gets turned into testosterone so i eat all the fuckin yolks i want, but say your on the older side or have a bad family history with high cholestorol or heart problems you might wanna kick down some of the yolks. but i just keep them in for the extra test and protein and all that good shyt

i've worried about this too but have yet to ever throw a yolk away...i hate waste lol.

but like said just eat a lot of oatmeal. it kind of keeps my mind off of it when i think thats it not a problem. even though it might be.

Word! That's what I like to hear. I'm only 22, and I love 'dem yolks, so this is good news. And yeah, my general post-workout breakfast is about a cup (uncooked) of oats with some honey, and about 5 eggs with a glass of milk.

Whole Eggs = Testosterone = Muscle


Cholesterol ain't gonna kill you. Triglycerides will though... Thats what hardens up the cholesterol.

Eskimos blood is like pure cholesterol. You don't see them dying from high cholesterol.

uhm, so what are triglycerides then? do they come from eggs, too?

They are a kind of fat. They sit in your fat stores, but also circulate in your blood. They are the kind of fat that harden and clog up your arteries.

Thats why they say avoid fried foods. Makes the triglyceride count go through the roof... not good.

^^ Yes it does. Google my friend. Google.

Now to the OP: If you have high cholesterol already, it's best to avoid high cholesterol foods. Other than that, most people should have no issues.

My favorite shake: 10whole eggs, 2 scoops whey, 6tbsp Heavy Cream :) -- 1200cals of Testosterone boosting goodness!

It does have a little effect, but foods high in saturated fat and such are much more of an issue. If your diets sorted and you don't eat much 'bad fat' like you should, then cholesterol shouldn't be a worry (unless you have family conditions).

Nah man, thats another misconception. Saturated fats like in Red Meat are good in moderation.

Now, the REAL KILLER is TRANS FATS!!!

Please read all articles in Detail before posting, as this may mislead people new to the iron game.

From the Article: "Experts advise that despite being low in saturated fat, one should not eat more than two eggs a day on a low-fat diet."

Sounds like another bullshit article to me... Hmmm

I did. The MYTHS are only in the top paragraph. It goes onto elaborate why they believe eggs are good for you after that.

Eating on the whites is a waste of a perfect protein/fat complex. Eat the whole damn egg, or OX will #### a brick! ;)

Bro, eggs are handsdown one of the best mass building foods you can eat for your protein intake, i have incorporated them into my diet now for almost a whole year, eating about 4 out of 6-7 meals as eggs, and i have benefitted from them greatly. Also add oatmeal to the meal, because it contains in my opinion, the best form of carbohydrates, but then again it is what works for your body type. Anyways, try eggs for a few months, you cant go wrong with them, i promise man, let me know how it goes in the future...

To each his own bro. Eggs = Steroids (to Natural BB'ers) ;)

I eat 18whole eggs a day. I attribute my last 15lbs gained to my mass eating a whole eggs. Either raw, or sunnyside up. Gotta love it.

If you don't have cholesterol or other related issues, you're fine. Eat as many as you like... within reason of course.

18 a day? thats fuckin brutal man. I almost puke every morning on just 5. I do notice that when i eat them for lunch instead of breakfast they're more tolerable but i still fuckin hate them. I've been eating them every single day (minus a sick day or 2) and they still haven't grown on me.

LOL! Yeah... Its actually down from 22-24. o_O

They get expensive. I like the Omega3 eggs, or just organic brown ones. I usually just use the cheapo white ones, and throw in 2-3 Omegas or browns just for flavor!

To tell you the truth, I'm not sure if they will ever grow on you. My favorite seasoning might help you out. Its called Vegetable Supreme by McCormicks. Just dash that on the top of them and it adds a nice flavor that shouldn't effect anyone's diet.

I ate whole eggs most of last years offseason and to be very honest I did not 'feel' healthy consuming that much fat. However, i was eating a lot more "planned" fat then i ever have. Don't get me wrong I GREW last year (got up to 260) for sure but I didn't feel good...perhaps it was the added NEW weight gain or it was mentally (as we know i am a headcase at times) once i switched from whole eggs to egg whites and sourced most of my faats from meat, supplements almonds and natty PB i did feel much better.

Now my precontest diet has no extra added fat sources that don't come from my meat sources and I feel great even though i'm eating less then half the calories I ate offseason, I'm strong as i've ever been and getting leaner every week....so most likely i will keep the fats much lower this years offseason and add more carbs to make up the calories vs. all the fats i ate last year and see where that takes me....

just my .02....low carbed .02 if that matters LOL

eggs are just like food. treat them like it. not like a supplement bro.
raw eggs are where its at, salmonella is not to be worried about. An infected egg is quite noticeable and it's some absurd number for what the chances are of getting it.
I'm at 3 raw eggs in the morning now, just because I cannot eat egg whites. They make me fucking sick.
Im thinking about eating an additional three with my shake before sleep.

It depends largely on what other foods you are eating throughout the day. Eggs are a pretty cheap way to pack in a lot of protein and EFAs with your meals. If you're just eating 2 eggs and nothing else, then you better increase this ASAP but if you're having steak/chicken etc with the eggs, then it's a different story.

As for raw vs. the other methods of cooking, from a science perspective (yeah, I'm a science nerd, but I like to use foods as efficiently as possible) raw eggs are the hardest to digest while scrambled ruins the EFAs. Boiled in my opinion, are best (though I think scrambled tastes the best). Shit, even though raw eggs are the least digestible, how easy is it to just pop 'em into a protein shake and you're done. You can argue the semantics all day but in the big scheme of things, as long as you are getting that shit in your body, that's the key. See what works for you and keep consistent.

Hardgainers and endomorphs alike, eggs are great. Educate yourself before asking what is wrong with "us" as well, please. The fat in the eggs is not so bad unless you're predisposed to cholesterol problems, and the fat they contain is actually "healthy" fat. With all the essential vitamins and minerals, not to mention their great amino profile, if you're not eating them I would ask "wtf is the matter with you?..."

Also i've had my physical and the Doc said i'm as healthy as horse, blood work came back clean and everything is where it should be. Eggs are great, easy to cook and a great way to start the day. Also if your putting in your dues in the gym, doing your cardio as your suppose to, your body will use up the eggs and everything they contain as well as all the other foods you eat to help you grow.

Oh that was my bad, I didnt mean any offense on anyone, especcially the moderators of this site.

I just thought that eating 5 eggs a meal would be way too much because of the high cholesterol. I dont even have more than 2 eggs every morning. I mean I think eggs are the best source of high quality protein but wont the high cholesterol in the yolks of eating 5 eggs, let alone the high cholesterol in having one egg, be dangerous, or is it benficial?

unless you have a history of bad cholesterol or issues in your family concerning high cholesterol, its not an issue for you. Its saturated fats thats a main concern and what contributes to obesity and heart problems in America. Now, im not supporting the idea of eating a dozen whole eggs every day either..however combining 2-3 whole eggs with eggwhites for a healthy BB'r or athlete, not a problem.

LDL cholesterol: LDL stands for low-density lipoproteins. Think L is for "loser," since LDL is "bad cholesterol." It blocks arteries, which can lead to heart attacks and strokes.

HDL cholesterol: HDL stands for high-density lipoproteins. Think H is for "happy," since HDL is "good cholesterol." It helps remove fat deposits and keeps arteries from getting blocked.

Triglycerides: These fats increase the chance of having a heart attack or stroke if the level in your blood is too high.

if this is a concern for you, a simple little pin prick by any family doc will determine whether or not 2-5 eggs a day is actually in your best interest or not.

That right there is great advice. Get your current chol levels tested then eat some eggs. 6 months later get tested again.

Eggs are boss when it comes to cutting. I don't know how everyone else feels about them but they're truly amazing. I eat eggs 2-3 meals a day every day. Gotta love it.

Added:
Btw last time I got tested my cholesterol levels were exceptional. My father has high cholesterol and so do my Grandfathers on both sides.

IMO - Cholesterol is just something to worried later in life when you may potentially be leading a sedentary lifestyle due to a career or parent hood.

idk bro, many bbs eat more then a dozen eggs per day and have perfect cholesterol levels... compare that to the average guy who eats 3 eggs a week fried in vegetable oil of course, and then chases that with some oreos... and sitting on the couch all day long

so now you know... eat your eggs, don't worry... also, if you can afford it, grab the omega-3 eggs, imo a great choice for both cutting or bulking

Yeah i think the whole egg deal is a joke. Eggs are perfetcly fine. Since i live on a farm i get an unlimited amount of eggs so i eat around 5-12 a day. I never had any health problems and ive actually lost a few pounds just eating eggs more often.

When I'm bulking (currently), I have 5 whole eggs in the morning. If I'm up for it, I may even make myself an omelet at night with 3-4 eggs. Show me some research/studies where a person died from eating too many eggs.

how many eggs a day is safe? have read that egg yolk has 2/3 the daily recommendation worth of cholesterol per egg yolk. what are the other nutritional facts? how much protein per egg white? can overcooking (ie boiling for too long effect the proteins) ? what is everybodies favourite way to cook and eat eggs?

Hope to hear from somebody, anybody... cavell aka the 'Sling'

At different times in the past year eggs have been great for you, and eggs have been bad for you. The high level of cholesterol negatively effected you, then a few months later it had no effect. I say fuck it. I eat 5 in the morning EVERY morning. If I feel like makin an omelet in the evening, I do. And I don't worry about the ''bad stuff in the egg''

Why do hardgainers go so crazy with eggs?
I know that the protein of egg whites are perfect but the yolks contain very amount high cholosterol and I read articles of poeple eating 5 eggs a meal...wtf is the matter with you.?
are they asking to die?

The real question is, what is implicated in bad cholesterol profiles in the body? Dietary intake of cholesterol or saturated fat?

it's funny that over the last 20 years, how many food are considered healthy at one point, only to be deemed unhealthy a few years later; the same people who say eating a Special K cereal bar or some shit like that is a healthy breakfast- it's a joke! we've seen this with eggs, milk, red meat, PB, protein consumption etc....

in the meantime, people who know, aka athletes, bodybuilders, etc just keep eating the foods that have PROVEN for generations to be healthy and promote fat loss and muscle gain, and they perform and look great. i eat a lot of eggs and red meat daily and my cholesterol is in the 180's...

i guess some people need to be told what to eat?

This is false. If you have high chol to start with, eating eggs will not help it. If your chol is fine to start with, eggs will not elevate it. I got this straight from my Dr last year when I started Rage's cutting diet.

Eggs also include the emulsifier lecithin, which basically nullifies the cholesterol. So much in fact that eggs can even lower your cholesterol. I remember an experiment in which there were three groups of food testing for cholesterol...milk, eggs, and both. The eggs and milk and eggs group cholesterol never raised, while the milk group did slightly. The lecithin allowed the milk and egg group to emulsify the cholesterol completely.

Supplementing the proper amount of EFA's will also lower your cholesterol. Red Rice Yeast extract also lowers cholesterol really well too.

Red Rice Yeast can also stress your liver pretty badly. Be sure to stack it with some milk thistle and other detoxifying agents.

Indeed, Red Yeast Rice is a natural statin source, so it's chemically similar to a lot of the perscription cholesterol-lowering medications. It's important to supplement with COQ10 when using Red Yeast Rice, because Red Yeast Rice lowers COQ10 levels. It's also a good idea to get regular bloodwork done, to check for any liver problems.

I just went to a dietician because my labs came back with borderline high cholesteral and my good cholesteral was almost nil. Yeah not good. She looked at my diet and supplementation and suprisingly didn't have too much to say. She said looking at my labs and looking at my figure is making her take a different approach than normal. She said she would normally tell people to lower their protein intake but she said I'm doing it with sincere goals in mind. The only thing is she suggested I split my protein drink into two separate drinks because she doesn't believe I can digest 50g at one sitting, but is fine with my total intake of protein per day. Basically she's thinking it's genetic and a lack of fiber in my diet. I'm taking vytorin to help with the cholesteral and increasing my fiber. She didn't say one work about the 4 whites plus 2 whole eggs I eat every day.

I recently had blood work done and the results came back with my cholesterol being slightly above the recommended limit. I usually consume eggs in the morning and red meat at least once per day and sometimes finish the day with another meal containing whole eggs. I did have low cholesterol as a kid, so it may just be a genetic thing ...

Doc told me to start eating less whole eggs and more egg whites. Also told me to cut back on the red meat. Yeah, OK ...

Egg yolks have cholesterol high. Even if they are healthy for you too a good thing can be bad for you. You can try to limit oneself to one egg yolk per day.If high cholesterol is a problem for you, you can always substitute two egg whites for one whole egg in omelets and other recipes requiring eggs.

Yes, eggs may raise your cholesterol. They will raise your HDL (good) cholesterol levels. This is not a bad thing at all.

The reason why egg yolks get the bad rap is that studies were done a long time ago, (think 1950s.) and eggs were found to raise HDL cholesterol in subjects. The problem was that they didn't know the difference between good and bad cholesterol. So everyone has been thinking that eggs will clog your arteries for the past few decades. It is a deep nutritional myth that has now been debunked. Too bad most doctors and nutritionists didn't get the memo.

The only reason to steer clear of whole eggs is if you already have cholesterol problems. Eggs are the best food for bodybuilding ever.

Horse Crap! Whole Eggs are Natures Most perfect food source. I still eat a dozen every day ( 2 added at every meal regardless of what else I eat) and at 50 plus I still have a better Blood Profile than you Egg White eaters. lol
