While egg yolks are high in cholesterol, they are lower in saturated fat than many cuts of meat. The American Heart Association now says an egg a day is okay for most people! Even though an egg contains 200 milligrams of cholesterol, for the majority of the people it’s not the dietary cholesterol that raises the blood cholesterol.
Call to Action:
So dismiss any “cholesterol fear” you may still harbor from unfounded and scientifically incorrect information that scared you away from eating the most nutritious part of the egg — the yolk. Half the protein is in the yolk!
Note: There’s only a small percentage of people who need to eat less egg yolk, those who have a genetic tendency toward high cholesterol, and there’s a blood test to find out if this is true for you.
