Eggs are good protein, but fatwise depends on how you make them. Are you frying them? That would make a little more fat. If you like fried eggs, you can get almost the same effect with no oil by poaching them. Poached or hard-boiled I would think are the best way to have eggs.

*Edit:Looking at those nutritional facts makes me want to go get my cholesterol level checked. 142% in 2 eggs is scary. Your cholesterol intake % shouldn't change if you're on a more than 2000 cal/day diet should it?

142% cholesterol? An error?

Are 2 eggs per day 3-4 times a week good for someone on a diet or should I try something else?

Yeah, that's what is says. I've never really paid close attention to the FDA %'s. Also, I believe dietary cholesterol impacts your cholesterol levels less than saturated fat intake and such.

I eat three eggs each day, but take out the yolks on two of them. The whites contain most of the protein and none of the cholesterol.
I'll alternate between scrambling them in a 1/4 teaspoon of olive oil on one day and making myself a omlette on the other day. Using a microwave omlette maker, it only takes 4 minutes, you do not have to use any oil, and the omlette can be filled with veggies
