    Not sure if there is a thread about eggs already. I wanted to ask if there is a limit on how many eggs we should be having.

    I love eggs, and im quite happy to have 2-3 a day for lunch, but i was worried in case it was too much and affected weight loss?

    There's no limit, which is why they're free food.

    If you use the search facility, then you can find any existing threads already (there have been loads about eggs!).

    Enjoy your eggs!

    I love eggs too - any which way - love the sw quiche too with 5 eggs in - and omelettes and scrambled etc etc - however, I understood that if you have a cholesterol problem they should be limited - I have (had - cos I don't know now after being on SW for 6 months) a cholesterol problem - but I cannot do without my eggs.

    THEN I also understand that this theory about eggs and cholesterol was a load of old bunkem? Don't know what to believe.

    Think I might have to go have another cholesterol test and then take advice from the doc after the results.

    Anyway, according to SW there is no limit.

    All of the relevant medical organisations have revoked their earlier advice about eggs being linked to high cholestorol - there was an article about it in one of the SW magazines

    dietary cholesterol has little to no direct effect on blood cholesterol..

    whole eggs have about 70-90 cals in them.. ( dependant on size obviously ), with most of that in the yolk.. ( 15-25 in the white only ), so you can have more whites if you leave out the yolks ( which is where the fats and cholesterol is anyway.. the white is just protein as far as I recall from school )
    so bulk out a 2 egg omelet or scrambled egg with an extra white or two..

    But an egg without a yolk is just a shame!!

    I tried duck eggs from my local market this weekend. They were really big and tasty - would recommend!
