have you ever had your cholesterol checked before? Dietary cholesterol only accounts for about 15% of the cholesterol in your body. If you have high cholesterol or a family history of high cholesterol then you should try to remove some of your dietary cholesterol...otherwise you should be fine.

If you're concernced with cholesterol simply remove the yolk from the eggs, leaving the white. I know it won't taste as good this way, but its an option. Egg yolks aren't a very good source of fat, either, lots of sat. fat.

Not unless you have high cholesterol. It may be a good idea to find out if you have a family history of it.

Dietary cholesterol has little effect on a healthy individual who performs regular exercise. If that's you, I wouldn't worry about it.
