    Eggs, how many is too many?

    I scramble up 6 eggs with yokes on organic rape seed oil post workout most days of the week

    Should I be worried about cholesterol problems?

    I read that the cholesterol in the yolk of an egg is harmless unless the yolk is broken. When the yolk of an egg is broken the cholesterol gets oxidized and therefore enters your body as a harmful fat.

    ^^^ possible broscience

    There's really no solid proof that I've read that links eating cholesterol, to blood cholesterol levels. Genetics plays much more of a role in it. Honestly i would worry more about AAS throwing my lipids off than egg yolks.

    If your diet allows for that much fat i don't see a problem with it

    Thers something like 80% of your daily intake of cholesterol in one egg.

    Does 6+ eggs daily sound like a good idea?

    Use egg whites, and add a few yolks in the mix for the omega properties, i wouldnt go above 2.

    A bodybuilders diet is very high in cholesterol, all meat has pretty substantial amounts of cholesterol in it, then you add anabolic steroids to that? You get the idea.

    You should read the post above yours again, several studies show dietary cholesterol and blood cholesterol are unrelated. It's the saturated fat in your diet which increases your LDL levels.

    I have an older brother who's way overweight and for years every morning eats 4 eggs scrabled with a big heap of sour cream whipped in covered in full fat cheddar cheese and about a half lb of bacon. Thats just breakfast he lives on fast food, his HDL and LDL are not even close to bad, same with blood pressure.

    On the other hand I have a friend who competes in triathlons, eats nothing but healthy fats and carbs and still has to take medication to keep his lipids in check. The more people i talk to the more I'm convinced genetics is the major contributing factor.

    I acknowledge that there may be more factors, (diet, cardio vascular health)
