    It's just a different way to eat eggs. They're not bad for you provided you don't have high cholesterol or certain conditions. In fact they're very healthy.

    Eggs are one of the best foods you can eat. Don't buy into all the cholesterol nonsense. Dietary cholesterol doesn't raise blood cholesterol, and even if it did, it's particle size that matters, not total cholesterol.

    This. Plus, getting fats is important. Especially saturated fats since they have a role with our hormones.

    Yep, exactly. I cringe every time someone tells me they discard the yolks and only eat the whites because they "don't want to get fat" or because "cholesterol and saturated fat is bad for you".

    True story:

    I had this hour long argument with a kid once about how eggs are not bad for you (he was saying they were due to the fact they have cholesterol in them). Despite all the evidence I was throwing at him, he wasn't having any of it.

    We were on our way back from a flag football game and the driver asked if we wanted to stop and get food. They ended up stopping at some greasy little food joint and I didn't eat anything, but the kid that was so adamant about avoiding egg yolks because of the "cholesterol being bad for you" proceeded to order a double cheeseburger, a hot dog, and some cheese fries and ate it like it was no big deal.

    After I pulled my head out of the wall that I put it through, I asked him about it and he said "oh I eat like this all the time".

    You can imagine the look on my face...

    Bro eggs = cholesterol = death bro srs.

    I'm kidding.

    Eggs are great, omega3s and omega6s (ArA) plus healthy fats and protein! It's a super food imo.

    Yes, eat the yolks. No point in throwing them away.

    Even people who say they only eat the whites because it "fits their macros" should just look at cutting fat or calories elsewhere instead of throwing out the yolks. Seriously, there's way too much good nutrition in those yellow things to be wasting them.

    Eggs are a staple in any bodybuilders diet. The cholesterol is needed for testosterone production amongst other things .... ever notice that guys on low cholesterol diets end up with low T ? Duh

    I eat between 6-12 eggs daily. Hard boiled not so much but scrambled and over easy yum

    The only harmful thing I can see from eating eggs in abundance is the harm it can cause to those close to you ..... death gas. Really tests the strength of your relationship

    Too much saturated fat brah!

    I have anywhere from 3-6 whole eggs daily. I also have liquid whites in case my fat for the day won't allow for more whole eggs.

    No problem to take several eggs each day. The problem is bad oils and cooking a lot the oils.

    Are hard boiled eggs unhealthy?


    As long as you cook them right it's ok. I'm not a fan of hard boiled eggs.

    Cooking fats (including those in eggs) over high heat can oxidize the fats creating unhealthy trans-fats.

    Soft boiled, over easy, sunny side up and even scrambled if not cooked too high heat, are all great.
