Eggs

#2
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..

some info from the bupa website..

Sources of cholesterol

There are two different sources of cholesterol – some comes from the food you eat, but most of it is made within your body.

Cholesterol that comes from the food you eat is called dietary cholesterol. Not many foods actually contain cholesterol. Examples of some that do are:
  • eggs
  • liver
  • kidney
  • prawns
Eating foods that are high in cholesterol won’t usually raise your blood cholesterol level much. Most cholesterol is made within your body, in your liver. Your liver can produce all of the cholesterol your body needs so dietary cholesterol isn’t an essential part of your diet. Your cholesterol levels are mainly influenced by the other fats that you eat.

Saturated fats

The saturated fats you eat have the biggest impact on cholesterol levels in your body. Saturated fats (or saturates) cause levels of LDL cholesterol to rise in your blood, in proportion to HDL cholesterol. This raises your risk of heart disease and stroke. It’s important to limit the amount of saturated fats you eat. Saturated fats are found in foods such as meat, cheese, butter, cream and pastries.

Unsaturated fats

Unsaturated fats (or unsaturates) actually reduce levels of LDL cholesterol in your blood. For this reason they can be a healthy choice, and it's a good idea to replace saturated fats in your diet with unsaturated fats. Unsaturated fats are found in vegetable oils, sunflower spreads, nuts and avocados.

Trans fats

Trans fats are artificially solidified vegetable oils. Similar to saturated fats, trans fats raise levels of LDL cholesterol, so try to save foods containing these fats for an occasional treat. Trans fats are found in many types of processed foods, including, biscuits, cakes and pastries.
