Small changes in diet and exercise can make a big difference in your cholesterol level…eggs

 

Years ago, a dietitian studied my diet and told me I wasn't getting enough protein. So I started eating two or three fried eggs for breakfast. No more. Now I opt for two hard-boiled eggs, minus the yolk.

 

Mayo Clinic cardiologist Dr. Thomas Behrenbeck gives us the real deal about eggs on http://www.MayoClinic.com.

 

"Here are the facts: One large egg has about 213 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol -- all of which is found in the yolk. If you are healthy, it's recommended that you limit your dietary cholesterol intake to less than 300 mg a day. If you have cardiovascular disease, diabetes or high LDL (or 'bad') cholesterol, you should limit your dietary cholesterol intake to less than 200 mg a day."
