    My husband has had a quadruple bypass, a triple bypass, and 6 stents.
    His cardiologist told him not to eat more than 2-4 eggs per month. He says that, if you don't have a genetic predisposition to high cholesterol, eggs are perfectly okay. But if you do, then they are not.

    Yes I have strong family history, my body doesn't process cholesterol like others. I have to limit cheese, eggs etc. I'm fit, slim, doesn't matter..I've had 240 cholesterol in tests in the past. Personal trainer first cousin is similar.

    For some balance here, cutting out eggs helped me lower my high cholesterol and my doctor is happy with the difference it made.

    I haven't eaten them in over a year and now I think they're kinda gross. You know, bird menstruation and all that...

    I don't eat eggs every day but almost. My cholesterol went from 228 last April to 151 now. So if that is bad, give me bad.
