I currently have adapted my diet to eat more eggs, as I have heard from numerous sources that they are beneficial to one's muscle & health.

I'd like to know the ups and downs of them.

Thanks!

Eggs are NOT bad for you. People say they are because they have high cholestorol and fat. But the cholesterol in eggs isn't absorbed by the body at all. It passes right out of your system. As for the fat....its not that much at all...1.5 g of sat fat in a whole egg and 4.5 g total fat. Then there's the fact that a whole egg is a complete protein in and of itself. It has all the essential amino acids for the body. Hope this helps some bro. :cool:

The link between dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol is definately there but it is not a 100% correlation. Therefore I disagree with Spidey's statement as he's presented it.

I know many people who eat too much cholesterol who also have high blood cholesterol. Of course, there are also some people who seem to defy the laws of nature.

Best thing to do is if you're eating a lot of animal fat (including eggs) get your cholesterol checked regularly. Ask your Doctor.

the last thing you want to be is a big, cut, bodybuilder who is unhealthy and at risk of coronary heart disease.

Well, let's put it this way.

I'm not trying to be a professional bodybuilder. I do want muscles, however. Also, I'm 14. ;)

I will, however, get my cholesterol checked frequently.

I do love eggs, so hey, as long asd their not hurting me THAT much, I might as well go for it. :D

No link has been shown between dietary cholestrol (consumed in food) and blood cholestrol.

Blood cholestrol, which is made by the liver, is caused by high levels of saturated fat. It is blood cholestrol which causes heart problems, not dietary cholestrol.

Eggs are predominantly unsaturated fat, which is a good source of fuel.

ALL the vitamins and minerals are in the yolk.

I believe, although I am not 100% certain, that the egg yolk contains a better quality amino acid profile. Can anyone confirm or deny this?

A person who is young, athletic, and with no history of heart disease in the family, could easily benefit from eating 5 egg yolks a day, although someone who is fat, lazy, and with heart disease in the family, should stay away from eggs simply because of the saturated fat levels, although they aren't particularly high.

My question to you people, could this same hypothetical person get away with eating 10 egg yolks a day?

I don't think I would eat ten, simply because I would get sick of them. Many body builders eat up to seven, I believe (although again, I'm just an amateur).

a page i had bookmarked that has some info on the nutritional composition of an egg:

http://www.aeb.org/food/nutrient.html

I guess there are some vitamins in the white..but not much.

Intel. Muscle

Excellant web page, I've spent ages trying to find a page with the break down of the amino acid content of eggs. Thanks Vpy.

So the amino acids are split equally between the egg white and the egg yolk.

However, all the vitamins and minerals are in the yolk.

My question: Do the vitamins and minerals in the yolk make the yolk worth taking, despite its fat content? I have no fat on me whatsoever, and am trying to gain some fat as this will make it easier for me to build strength.

I always used to think it was fruit which gave us all our vitamins, now I'm under the impression that the only Vitamin we get from fruit is Vit C. I eat Red Peppers for that, they are extremely dense in Vit C, 200mg per large red pepper, (over tripple the RDA)

This has all the nutritional info you will ever need.

1. eggs are about 1/3 saturated fat (1.8g out of 5.8)

2. More cholesterol info here http://www.americanheart.org/Heart_and_Stroke_A_Z_Guide/choldi.html

3. There is a link between dietary saturated fat, dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol, not sure where you got your info from.

I disagree. I know what the AHA says. However, the adkins diet uses a high cholesterol, high fat diet which actually results in significant improvements not only in total cholesterol but also in lipid profile. It results in significant improvements in patients risk factors. Besides total cholesterol is one of the least important numbers and is secondary to HDL and total chol/HDL ratio, and smoking as main risk factors. There are several new studies out which substantiate this as well. In fact, arteriosclerosis is one of the least understood degenerative diseases and anyone who claims they have the answer is just trying to sell you something. My own personal OPINION (although scientificly based) is that free hydroxyl radicals cause the oxidation of lipids into viscous plaques. But it is much more complicated than this.

hemants
04-05-2001, 07:30 AM
Doc,

I don't doubt your references but I would love to see a published study in a peer reviewed journal that says there is no link between dietary saturated fat and blood cholesterol.

I agree there are many factors in blood cholesterol, overall weight loss being one of them. This is one possible explaination of why Atkin's diet followers see reduced cholesterol levels. (Assuming that this has been published in a peer reviewed journal and not just the studies done by those trying to sell you their stuff :) )

True, there are recent studies that show that dietary cholesterol is not as bad as dietary saturated fat in elevating serum cholesterol levels, but note the phrase "as bad as".

As with everything else, I think moderation and balance are the key.

There is nothing in an egg that can't be had from other, low fat sources.

Eggs are good for you, but too much of any one thing can be bad. If you eat a bazillion eggs with not enough exercise then yes, they would be bad. If you cook eggs with a pound of butter, then that could be a problem.

However, if you exercise and eat a normal amount of eggs, then that is no problem. You should not avoid eggs simply because someone said they had "high cholestrol". You just need to eat a sensible amount of eggs.

I think organic free range eggs (grain fed) eggs are good for building muscle. The problem is that the common supermarket variety is so full of hormones it's not funny. I've read that it does affect hormone levels if you eat a lot of it. The problem then is that organic eggs are a lot more expensive.

Egg-laying hens are not fed hormones.

EDIT:

Do egg laying hens receive hormones?
Egg laying hens are not given hormones. Some egg cartons say that the eggs are hormone free; however, this is true for all eggs in commercial egg production in the United States.

I think eggs are a pretty big staple. I use the pre-pasturized egg whites in the cartons, sold at every grocery store in the country. Its a little more expensive but it takes the work out of the preperation, plus, I am able to mix it right into a post shake, or drink it, without the worries.

Justin, half is in the white and half is in the yolk. The fat is in the yolk which is why often some people just use the whites for the protein without the fat calories.

Actually a link has been show between dietary cholesterol intake and blood cholesterol levels, but only when the dietary cholesterol in your food is accompanied by large amounts of saturated fats. This is why things like eggs and shellfish have always had sucha bad (and undeserved) rap. Shellfish are really high in cholesterol but contain almost 0 sat fat...therefore eat all you like. Eggs have sat fat, but as was said earlier, not much...its mostly good fat in the yolk. I have no concern whatsoever with eating as many eggs as i can stand. My metabolic panel always comes back clean, and i get bloodwork done every 6-12 months.

There have been numerous studies done on eggs in the past couple decades...if the average American didnt have the attention span of a toddler this myth would be dead already.

Like everything, there seems to be many different arguments for or against eggs. I personally love eggs because they're a good source of protein and I love omelettes :)

Also instead of looking at whether or not the fat in eggs is saturated or unsaturated, I think the thing to look for is if they are natural or not. Like most food, the more 'raw' you can get it the better it is for you. So if you get eggs from chickens grown on a farm that eat natural food, it's going to be a whole lot better for you than from the chicken grown in a plant pumped full of antibiotics and hormones.

brihead301
08-03-2009, 08:05 PM
I think this is overthinking things. Eggs are a good, whole food with high protien and fat (both very important to get a lot of). Therefore, they are fine to eat if eating healthy is your thing.

take the yolk out and the white of one large egg is roughly 17 calories. and from a post i put up about good recipes with them, they're the perfect matrix for any other foods ya wann throw in there lol. not terribly expensive, and they're loaded with protein. oh, and as a matter of fact for my first meal of the day, i had three egg whites with salsa. its actually pretty good for something that looks like vomit.

Eggs, for whatever reason, have gotten a bad wrap over the years because of cholesterol. A few whole eggs a day is fine. Especially now that they sell eggs from specially fed chickens that produce eggs high in Omega 3s.

Eat the whole egg for the love of chickens. @ 17 Calories youre talking about a little over 4g of protein per egg white then. So 3 of them and some salsa i dont think i would call a meal, more like a premeal snack. Feed yourself! ;)

I love eating eggs. I eat 2 eggs a day since that's the required consumption of it. It has good and bad effects. The egg yolk has cholesterol but the egg whites must be eaten after you have consumed the egg whites because it is the one that clears the cholesterol. It means that both must be eaten not just the egg yolk alone.

Eggs has other good benefits too because of its vitamin contents too but it has cholesterol as well

From reading this I still would like to ask

Could I have 4 poached eggs a day for breakfast on 2 - 4 pieces of soy and linseed toast?

I ask this cause I need another staple meal cause my current breakfast is poor and I need to up my calories a fair bit and this would be high in it

Hi Friends,

Well,I can't judge properly that eggs are good for health or not.Eggs are high in cholesterol, and a diet high in cholesterol can contribute to elevated blood cholesterol levels. However, the extent to which dietary cholesterol raises blood cholesterol levels isn't clear. Many scientists believe that saturated fats and trans fats have a greater impact than does dietary cholesterol in raising blood cholesterol.

Adding to the confusion, the American Heart Association recently acknowledged that as long as you limit dietary cholesterol from other sources, it may be possible to include a daily egg in a healthy diet a statement that was heavily reported in the media.

Here are the facts: One large egg has about 213 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol all of which is found in the yolk. If you are healthy, it's recommended that you limit your dietary cholesterol intake to less than 300 mg a day. If you have cardiovascular disease, diabetes or high LDL (or "bad") cholesterol, you should limit your dietary cholesterol intake to less than 200 mg a day. Therefore, if you eat an egg on a given day, it's important to limit or avoid other sources of cholesterol for the rest of that day.

Thanks

The AHA also tells you to limit all kinds of fats and have a lower maximum then Doctors of Nutrition. According to AHA you're supposed to limit olive oil, coconut oil, peanut butter, cow lard (butter), steak, etc. I am not advocating that the AHA has bad information, just the information they provide does not take into account a generally very active lifestyle. Athletes, strength sports, and individuals with a high level activity need slightly higher amounts of cholesterol and fats.

Spiderman makes a good point. Additionally if people have issues with cholestorol, that comes from more than just eggs alone. Eggs alone are not going to raise a persons cholestorol. It is usually a sign of overall bad health. Meaning they eat like crap period- and do not exercise.
Then there is also the genetic element. I know people with cholestorol issues who eat cleaner than BB'ers during prep.

Eggs got a bad rap. They are an excellent food, and a great source of protein.

I personally use omega 3 eggs.

This thread is funny. Probably why the smart WBB members have dropped out of it by now.

I'm just going to chip in with an interesting tidbit about how much the issue has flip-flopped even in recent years.

About 40 years ago there was a very successful and famous advertising slogan in Great Britain of "go to work on an egg" that pushed eggs as a healthy and satisfying breakfast. A few years ago the British Egg Industry wanted to revive that campaign as a kind of 40 years anniversary and get the older generation feeling all nostalgic again, and they were actually banned from running it because the government deemed it irresponsible! The British Heart Foundation recommended only 3-4 eggs a week. Ridiculous.

A year or two ago, they finally repealed this advice and apologized to the egg industry. The American Heart Association has also removed specific reference to eggs in their dietary recommendations for heart health. The cholesterol issue has finally been proven and accepted as a myth! Its OK people! They're fine! Wouldn't surprise me if governments changed their minds again tho. It really surprise me how many people still think eggs are bad for them. I'm actually disappointed how many people in this thread are concerned.

You should eat the whole egg. The yolk is actually the part which contains ther most nutrition. According to the Havard Medical School Guide to Healthy Eating:"No research has ever shown that people who eat more eggs have more heart attacks than people who eat few eggs".

Eggs does help in diet sometimes. If the heat in your body is not increasing too much then i think it is safe for you to eat eggs for diet. Else you need to consult doctor and have to change egg and take them with some gap of few days.

1) Dietary cholesterol does not effect blood cholesterol.
2) Dietary fat is not equivalent to body fat.

Eggs are fine, eat them as a whole.

Mercuryblade

1) Dietary cholesterol does not effect blood cholesterol.


This is not correct. It depends on the individual. Cholesterol is a substance the body naturally produces, and with some people, cutting back on dietary cholesterol will reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood, for others, cutting back dietary cholesterol will cause the body to just start producing more to compensate.

This was not fully understood until recently, hence, why there was so much back and forth on the egg debate.

It's not as simple as "eggs are good for you" or "eggs are bad for you."

ive read that raw offers no benefits over cooked and actually isnt as good, not to mention you could get sick. Ive read that frying eggs is best because it heats the egg up hotter then boiling which releases something within the egg making the protein a little more bio-available or something along those lines

i just boil em, my ma taught me a trick. Start boiling the eggs, when the water reaches a boil turn off the heat and cover the pot the water will still cook the eggs enough they'll be done in about 15-20minutes

Eggs are healthy and the yoke has vitamin B12, which is a nutrient that gives you energy and aids your nerves system. Eggs are a great source of protein and fat. But as eggs are high in cholesterol just don't overdo it cause nothing good when there's too much of it.

Eggs are very good - however if i eat whole eggs my LDL cholesterol rises about 20 points; then that eating 3 or 4 eggs a day. Maybe as most doctors advise 2 eggs a week.

I don't know which is more amazing, the amount of bot posts, or the fact people were replying to them. Oh, and also the fact this bitch is 10 years old ftw.

It depends on the individual. Cholesterol is a substance the body naturally produces, and with some people, cutting back on dietary cholesterol will reduce the amount of cholesterol in the blood, for others, cutting back dietary cholesterol will cause the body to just start producing more to compensate..
This sums it up nicely.


Using Kettlebell and treadmills helps to loose fat.
Does it help on the tight fat too?

I'm pretty convinced eggs may be the single greatest food on the planet. Such a cheap source of protein, healthy fats, cholesterol, vitamins, minerals.....

Milk is a close second IMO to eggs.

I've been reading up on some research on Arachidonic Acid lately, stuff is real interesting; not surprisingly one of the few good sources of it is eggs.

I've been eating atleast 30 eggwhites a day for 2 years now. The liquid egg whites are such a great convenience. 15 egg whites, 4.5oz chicken, 10 oz sweet potato- cooked in a frying pan and eaten with some organic ketchup. A staple meal... try it out.

Excess of everything is bad but In general egg is a rich source of protein.There are few bad effects of health by eating eggs and they are all associated with excess.It is because of the unlimited benefits the Wrestlers used to eat as many RAW eggs as they can...

1 oz is equal to one eggwhite... 15-16 oz in a carton, therefore 15 eggwhites.
