Did you know that one egg yolk contains 213mg of cholesterol! Yes, just one! According to AHA guidelines, a person should be having <300mg of cholesterol per day if healthy and <200 mg of cholesterol per day if they have CHD. If you eat just one egg yolk, you’re already at 2/3 the amount of cholesterol you should be having per day. Although the yolk does also contain 3g of protein, and 5g of fat, I would suggest to stick to egg whites as much as possible. Also, according to the USDA Nutrition Evidence library, more than 7 eggs per week is associated with higher chance of CHD and risk of stroke. Just something to keep in mind!
