chemical king you are the king of bumping threads
it depends on the size of the egg - the eggs i get are 5g pro per egg - but once u take the yolk out its more like 3g

Extra large eggs have about 4g pro in the white, 3g in the yolk with 5g total fat (1.5 sat). Don't forget the 250mg of cholesterol!

The cholesterol/egg issue is overblown and it's been discovered that it's really not an issue whatsoever.

Anything in excess is not a good idea. I mean, you can drink TOO MUCH water and hurt yourself. People usually think that 2-3 whole eggs per day is going to be too much and be bad for them, and that's just not the case. Now, 12 whole eggs, that would depend on your body's own natural cholesterol levels, how much it produces and the rate at which it does, etc. So, you may actually be able to get away with it, yes, or you might not, you just don't know. You could find out through testing though.

the yolk of the egg also has 2 or 3 amino acids that arent present in the white
i forget the names
the yolk can also help raise natty test levels
i usually have 1 yolk with every 6 whites

the bodys natural production of cholesterol FAR exceeds any cholesterol you eat. Eating more eggs makes the body drop its own production a bit. So eat 50 eggs if you like. Mankind have been eating eggs for millenias without every beeing harmed by it.
Funny how suddenly all foods we have been eating for centuries are "bad" while the more refined crap the food producers are pushing on us is "good" all the while cardiovascular dieseas and obesity is becoming the number one killer.

While this may meet the standards of a logical argument, it isn't altogether true. New insights into the fatty foods/heart disease connection reveal that in people with normal cholesterol metabolism it's not cholesterol that clogs arteries, it's foods high in saturated and hydrogenated fats. There is a small proportion of people who are termed "cholesterol sensitive," because their blood cholesterol levels rise when they eat foods high in cholesterol. In the great majority of the population, the amount of cholesterol in the diet does not affect blood cholesterol, since cholesterol is manufactured in the liver regardless of whether or not you eat it in a food. Saturated fats (and factory-made fats, such as hydrogenated ones) are far greater problems than dietary cholesterol, and compared with some other foods, eggs are not an especially high source of saturated fats. (Egg white is almost pure high-quality protein: so if you are a cholesterol- sensitive person, skip the yolk and eat the white.)
To show you how unfair it is to implicate the egg in cholesterol problems, consider that an egg contains only two grams of saturated fat and 75 calories versus seven grams of saturated fat and 268 calories in a small (3.5 ounce), lean hamburger patty. Even though a hamburger may contain only 100 grams of cholesterol as compared with 210 grams in one large egg, most quarter-pound hamburgers contain four times as much saturated fat as the innocent egg. Eggs actually qualify for the "low in saturated fat" label.
If the American Heart Association is not concerned about the cholesterol in eggs, neither should you. In light of the recent evidence clearing cholesterol as a heart-unhealthy food, the American Heart Association changed its tune and now regards an egg every other day as acceptable for people with normal cholesterol and those who are not sensitive to dietary cholesterol. Now that the egg has been found "not guilty" as a cholesterol-raising food, scramble it up and enjoy.

Can you explain the differences and give examples of Plain saturated fats and Hydrogenated fats? Thanks.

Thanks.. That is what I thought but wanted to hear others opinions. So johan is saying that sat. fats are not bad for the human body? I'm guessing he means when used in a strict diet and not excessively used.

Especialy the second one. Its a page by medical professionals and with other medical professionals involved in discussions. Very very good read.
This discussion pretty much explains my stance
Basicly we have been eating sat fats in large quantitys for thousdans, hundrads of thousands of years. With no dangerous effects, But cardiovascular diseases has skyrocketed the last half a century or so and funny enough the more vegitable oils we use as a society the more cardiovascular diseases we suffer from
this is a good quote that I feel is 100% right and spot on
I had dinner with Linus Pauling. I asked him if he wasn't taking a risk in eating his thick steak. He told me he believed if the body was well nourished with every thing it needed to function optimally then cholesterol would take care of itself and we didn't need to worry about it. By the way, he lived to 93. Charles (Puckik) McGee
Btw my cholesterol is about the lowest you can find

hydrogenated fats are fats that starts as poly or mono unsaturated fats but go through a disgusting chemical process to they become stable, get a higher melting point and longer shelf life. They turn into trans-fat(all natural fats are cis-fats).
Now Im not a chemist so I dont know the details of it all but trans fats has NEVER EVER been a part of our natural diet and we are seein the results of that crap now all over the world.
There are tribes spread over the world that until recently was living on what nature provided(along with LOTS of saturated fats). When researched found them they where all astonished how they could be of so good health with such a "poor" diet. Anyway when those people started eating the western "healthy" way guess what. Diabetes and cardiovascular diseases skyrocketed. From not existing amonst the population to beeing one of the most comon causes of death.
Still we cling on to the notion that saturated fats are horrible while unnatural vegitable fats are great.
09-24-2005, 03:39 AM #28
btw with unnatural vegitable oils I mean canola, soy, penut and other oils that we havent been consuming as a race. Olive and flax oil are different because they have always been eaten by us.
The other oils are a bitch to extract and require modern technology and heat and solvents.

These are incredible sites, I read them often. They really debunk a lot of nutrition myths and "facts", good post Johan.
