They are an excellent source of complete Protein. The cholesterol in eggs is a good kind. Cholesterol is produced by the body and has many functions. The oxidation of cholesterol is what causes inflammation. Since we produce it in the liver, and need it for so many things, like your skin and brain, it is important to learn all that you can about antioxidants. I post this same information about every 6 months.
Because we do get more people and they don't go back over old comments, it needs to be repeated. If all friends would share it, then more people would know it.
There is a level of cholesterol that the body needs daily. If we don't eat enough, the body makes more to fill that need.
Again, it is the oxidation that causes inflammation that us damaging, not the cholesterol itself.

I eat eggs every day, they are full of protein, and it is healthy. I don't buy organic eggs because, personally I don't believe in anything organic. My family eats whole grains, and vegetable carbs. Perfect!

Eggs, either soft scrambled or boiled are about the only solid food that I can get down, so I try to eat two every day. Bananas slide down easily too. I make protein shakes with decaf coffee. It cuts the sweet taste of the powders. I also find that ginger helps things move better. Gaviscon seals up the top of the stomach and helps prevent reflux.
FYI, the Vegus nerve goes all through the body and effects everything from emotions, thinking, digestion, heart, and kidneys. The only things that it doesn't effect are the Thyroid and Adrenal glands. It can be damaged and result in so many different problems, one is digestion.
We can help the nerve work well in many different ways. Some may sound strange, but they do help. Singing loudly every day, laughing, coughing, walking and running, meditation and prayer.
Know that the nerve goes from the esophagus and from the heart. A pain may be caused by either the esophagus spasm or the heart and feel almost exactly the same in the same place. Being careful to pay attention to your eating habits is very important. Eat small amounts at a time, chew very well. Take digestive enzymes, and probiotics.
Prevent diabetes by addressing your diet.
I have Gastroparesis from surgery even though I have done the right things. Medical mistakes over 50 years ago have caused the damage to my Vegus nerve at the bottom of my stomach, and my esophagus to bend like a ladder. This same condition can be caused by diabetes. So just pay attention to your digestion as much as you do your heart. Blessings in Christ.

I had eggs this morning, scrambled, but I dont eat theme everyday, I made a sandwich with 100% whole wheat bread and added tomato slices, plus organic slice of cheese. Fresh blueberries on the side. I have cut out meat from my diet almost completely.

Lost weight in the process too.

Since the Pandemic, my doctor hasn't seen me we have phone calls, but rarely.

I still eat eggs, just not every day. When I eat eggs they are usually boiled or poached. It's the yolk of the egg that has cholesterol, so if you want you can eat just the whites. Everything in moderation is what my doctor says. I don't eat any processed foods if I can help it, eat a lot of veggies, fruit, salads, fish, chicken and yes I eat red meat and eggs. My Cholesterol is perfect and my BP has come down. I am a WW member and losing weight has a lot to do with that. Good luck in your journey.
