  1. Maintenance of the LDL cholesterol:HDL cholesterol ratio in an elderly population given a dietary cholesterol challenge.

    Greene, Zern, Wood, et al.
    J Nutr. 2005 Dec;135(12):2793-8.

    We previously evaluated the responses to dietary cholesterol in children and young adults. In this study, the effects of dietary cholesterol on plasma lipids and LDL atherogenicity were evaluated in 42 elderly subjects (29 postmenopausal women and 13 men > 60 y old). Our exclusion criteria were diabetes, heart disease, and the use of reductase inhibitors. The study followed a randomized crossover design in which subjects were assigned to consume the equivalent of 3 large eggs (EGG) daily or the same amount of a cholesterol-free, fat-free egg substitute (SUB) for a 1-mo period. After a 3-wk washout period, subjects were assigned to the alternate treatment. The concentration of plasma cholesterol after the EGG period varied among subjects. When all subjects were evaluated, there were significant increases in LDL cholesterol (LDL-C) (P < 0.05) and HDL-C (P < 0.001) for both men and women during the EGG period, resulting in no alterations in the LDL-C:HDL-C or the total cholesterol:HDL-C ratios. In addition, the LDL peak diameter was increased during the EGG period for all subjects. In contrast, the measured parameters of LDL oxidation, conjugated diene formation, and LDL lag time did not differ between the EGG and the SUB periods. We conclude from this study that dietary cholesterol provided by eggs does not increase the risk for heart disease in a healthy elderly population.

    Bottom line: if your cholesterol jumps after an omlette, cut back on the yolks.
    we do not need to eat any food containing cholesterol because our body makes enough for our needs

  3. Egg whites and a yolk like Beelz mentioned are beneficial.


    I'm going to try 8 egg whites, one yolk, 3/4 cup of Oat Flour, 1 Tablespoon Olive Oil and I'm not sure what to add for flavor yet, as a good "20 second meal". What can I wash this down with though?

    We don't need it, but we can tolerate it to varying degrees.

  6. I take eggs raw in the morning.

    regarding the fats, I need fats when I CKD regardless... it's win win.

    Whole eggs, raw, and then I cook a few eggs about 1 1/2 hours later with egg whites (I have literally gallons of egg whites from a certain company) after my workout.

    I love eggs.. raw, scrambled, poached, bloody.. whatever.

    (Lanas?)

  8. ok dont, lol, Happy holidays people of AM.!!!

  9. if anyone is interested a great way to cook egss is with Macadamea Nut oil, best thing I was ever told to use

    High intake of cholesterol results in less atherogenic low-density lipoprotein particles in men and women independent of response classification.

    The influence of a high-cholesterol diet on the atherogenicity of the low-density lipoprotein (LDL) particle was examined by measuring LDL peak diameter and composition, LDL susceptibility to oxidation, and the distribution of cholesterol between LDL subclasses. The crossover intervention randomly assigned 27 premenopausal women and 25 men (18 to 50 years) to an egg (640 mg/d additional dietary cholesterol) or placebo (0 mg/d additional dietary cholesterol) diet for 30 days, followed by a 3-week washout period. Subjects were classified as either hyperresponders (>2.5 mg/dL increase in plasma cholesterol for each 100 mg additional dietary cholesterol consumed) or hyporesponders to dietary cholesterol. Sex was found to have a significant effect on 3 of the parameters examined. LDL peak diameter was significantly larger (P <.005) in females (26.78 +/- 0.59 nm, n = 27) as compared with males (26.52 +/- 0.49 nm, n = 25), regardless of response to dietary cholesterol. The LDL particles of the male participants also had a higher number of triglyceride (TG) and cholesteryl ester (CE) molecules (P <.01); however, cholesterol ester transfer protein (CETP) activity was higher in females (P <.05). Response classification also revealed significant differences in the determination of LDL subclasses. Independent of sex, the LDL-1 particle (P <.05), which is considered to be less atherogenic, was predominant in hyperresponders and this finding was associated with increased cholesterol intake (interactive effect, P <.001). In addition, CETP and lecithin: cholesterol acyltransferase (LCAT) activities were higher in hyperresponders during the egg period (interactive effect, P <.05). Sex, response to cholesterol intake, and diet were not found to affect the susceptibility of LDL to oxidation (P > 0.5). Because LDL peak diameter was not decreased and the larger LDL-1 subclass was greater in hyperresponders following egg intake, these data indicate that the consumption of a high-cholesterol diet does not negatively influence the atherogenicity of the LDL particle.


    MY COMMENT: Interesting that regardless of whether the subjects were hyper- or hypo-responders to cholesterol, intake increased only the neutral LDL subparticle. This lead the researchers to conclude that a high cholesterol intake from whole eggs is NOT a causal agent in the development of atherosclerosis -- regardless of predisposition to cholesterol biosynthesis.

  11. Eggs taste great. I mostly rely on eggs, chicken, and a little bit of whey for my protein intake. If you're strapped for time you can drink them with some liquid sucralose

    They are also probably the best source of lecithin, which is pretty underrated IMO.

  12. thanks alan, i love eggs and id be nice to have more yolks.

    No doubt. I have 3 whole eggs a day & my bloodwork is fine. Who's ass is that in your avvy? She's got some serious genetics.

  14. google keyra augustina, she parades aorund in different outfits, its degrading, its perfect. lol

    From what I remember, she's from Brazil and works with computers in some way. Besides posting her ass on them.

  17. 6-9 raw eggs a day with a teaspoon of regular sugar with each one

    on a bulk of course

  18. Raw Eggs, cook eggs. There's a little segment on this link on why you should cook your eggs which I think you may find interesting, though the writer of it doesn't always have his facts 100% right:

  19. ya see, the fat in the egg isn't really fat. it's PHAT but the peeps that put it down the nutrition label done gone mussed it all up so dat egg really has 4 grams of PHAT. what's the difference between fat and PHAT? PHAT has an extra carbon chain that transforms its cell structure into a new sequence called AMB-3 (Awesome Muscle Builder-Cubed)

    hahahahahahaha. One of the best posts ever.

    Can you explain what CKD is for retards such as myself?

  23. cyclic ketogenic diet

    inducing ketosis, sustaining ketosis for 5-7 days, and glycogen supercompensation for 2 days. Works extremely well on a cut while retaining muscle. I'm very senstive to carbs so it works good for me as an idividual, as when I try to gain i don't need as much carbs as the next person in my macro breakdown. It's hard to break from the ketogenic dogma once you get used to it though... that's the bane of it.

    Don't be self depricating... it lowers the sexy quotient.

    Gotcha, I was thinking it had something to do with lowering carbs.

  25. eggs are cheap and u take the yoke out and just eat the egg whites and u are good too go. i luv egg whites
