    Cholesterol & eggs? When they discovered that cholesterol in the blood stream was connected to heart disease, they immediately told everyone to stop eating anything with cholesterol. I think they assumed that cholesterol in the diet had a direct connection to cholesterol in the blood. That assumption was considered fact for a few decades. Research has proven that dietary cholesterol & blood cholesterol are not connected. Just google "dietary cholesterol" and you'll see medical article after medical article stating this.

    Apparently there's good cholesterol and bad cholesterol. My test results recently showed my bad cholesterol had gone down, but my good cholesterol hadn't gone up enough.

    You eat 2 or 3 HB eggs a day? Does that impact your cholesterol?

    Dietary cholesterol only impacts people who have genetic issues with hypercholesterolemia.

    If you're not one of them, don't worry about it.

    I'm one of those people, but I still sneak in a couple of eggs each week... >:)

    Hard boiled eggs are awesome. Personally, I like to pickle them.

    I used to eat 16 eggs a week and my cholesterol was normal.

    You could also just eat hard boiled egg white

    I eat 3 hard boiled egg whites, every day either for breakfast or my afternoon snack. It is a GREAT source of protein and as someone already say they really fill you up. I also have 3 dogs; who the minute I crack the egg, show up for the yolks. (I skip them just from a calorie standpoint more than anything else!)

    Don't know if it's good or bad but hard boiled is how I usually eat eggs most of the time now because it's the most convenient way to prepared them.

    I just boil a pack of 18 at one time and put them in a bowl of water in the frig abd pull out and peel as many as I want to eat at a time.

    A boel will last me a week or two. Eat them plain or added to ramen or salads.

    Why do you keep them in water in the fridge? I've never heard of this and wonder if I'm doing something wrong.

    LOL! My dogs do the same! (I only skip the yolk so I can save my calories for more CHEESE!)

    I eat one every day (since I started losing weight) at about 10, right between breakfast and lunch. Keeps me from being hungry. Keeps my morning and lunch calories pretty low because I would rather eat more at dinner time than the first half of the day.

    One program I used (and still use daily) suggested 2 hard boiled eggs, slice in half, with a small spread of real butter (totaling 1 tsp) on each yoke, and a small fruit (apple, half banana, etc)... is good balanced meal of protein, fat, and carbs to start a day... and for about 3 months now, it's worked for me, and I don't get any cravings until my next (small) meal about 3 hours later.

    Much Success!

    Love, love, love hard boiled eggs. I am a quasi veggie - don't eat pork or beef and not much fish either (until my daughter leaves home, that is!!) and so I keep an eye on protein intake. I have been eating 2 hard boiled eggs every week day for about 20 years. My fav, fast, go to food at work.

    We grew up on "egg in a cup" for breakfast. My mom would mash a hard boiled egg in a coffee mug, add a pat of butter and some salt and pepper. Her mom made it for her, and I made it for my kids. Easy, nutritious, cheap and always a kid favorite.

    I am too, and still eat eggs. I usually eat one whole egg and mix it with egg whites. I don't have them every day, though
