    find another source of protein dude... that's a lot of yolks, even though some would argue that the effects are not that hard on your body, I would refrain from eating that many...

    Thats a shit load of egg yolks. I don't think anyone can say whether you are at risk or not. Dietary intake of Cholesterol and actual Cholesterol levels don't correlate, so thats a plus. But if you are genetically prediposed well thats another case then. Have you tried a protein supplement like whey? Meats are a good souce too!

    as far as meats go, i already eat about 2 and a half pounds a day, half a gallon of milk, and 3 scoops of whey. its jsut my personal opinion that powder should not be any more then 10-20 percent of daily intake

    3.5g White, bout 2.5 for the Yolk, so yeah you're close. I'd still cut back on some Yolks and add more whites. Throw some cottage cheese in there possibly. You could certainly do a little more Whey.

    I have seen alot of studies supporting this next statement sorry for not having a source though

    Not only have studies shown that eggs do not significantly affect cholesterol levels in most individuals, but the latest research suggests that eating whole eggs may actually result in significant improvement in one's blood lipids (cholesterol) profile—even in persons whose cholesterol levels rise when eating cholesterol-rich foods.

    In northern Mexico, an area in which the diet contains a high amount of fat because of its reliance on low-cost meat products and tortillas made with hydrogenated oils, coronary artery disease is common. In a study published in the October 2004 issue of the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition,

    researchers evaluated the effects of daily consumption of whole eggs on the ratio of LDL (bad) cholesterol to HDL (good) cholesterol, and phenotype (the way an individual's genetic possibilities are actually expressed) in 54 children (8-12 years old) from this region. A month of eating 2 eggs daily, not only did not worsen the children's ratio of LDL:HDL, which remained the same, but the size of their LDL cholesterol increased—a very beneficial change since larger LDL is much less atherogenic (likely to promote atherosclerosis) than the smaller LDL subfractions. Among children who originally had the high risk LDL phenotype B, 15% shifted to the low-risk LDL phenotype A after just one month of eating whole eggs.

    now 12 is not the same as 2 i realize

    Yeah seems about right. i'd still seek an alternative to eating 12 egg yolks if possible. If not I doubt you'll die anytime soon.
