How Many Egg Yolks Should You Eat?


Breakfast is still considered the most important meal of the day. But a lot of us aren’t sure whether eggs should be included because of their saturated fat and cholesterol content.

Julia Zumpano, RD, a registered dietitian at Cleveland Clinic, says only people with heart disease risk factors should raise the red flag.

    Thanks, for the information!

    Only Nurses taught me nutrition and fluid restrictions and I said to this 21 year old, shouldn’t an RD be teaching this as a 15 min. instruction with none of the educational equivalents of an RD. I really was angered at this audacity as I have a graduate degree in nutrition and It took a BS, internship, and an MS for that. Your nursing program is like a hierarchy! I am sure you will delete this! Take a look at your professional equivalents. Nurses are studying to be Drs. Where is their PhD? And that is not an MD!

      Hi Jeanine. ..sounds like a bit of “professional sibling rivalry”…kinda unrelated to the topic at hand.

      Jeanine, this poorly written, incomprehensible rant has nothing to do with the subject of egg nutrition.

    What is the nutritional difference between store bought eggs and home grown eggs? Also what is the difference between brown and white eggs?

    I use mustard and beat the eggs with it instead of putting salt in scrambled eggs. It’s a nice way to add flavor.

    I read a study years ago done by Mizzou that showed that the lecithin in egg whites “counteracted” the cholesterol, so it didn’t matter if you ate the yolks. Then I heard that the cholesterol was “good cholesterol.”
