Eggs are one of the best foods nature has ever created. Just like milk, they are a complete food by themselves. A single cell that turns into a bird, imagine the health benefits from such a food source. But too much is too much, and how many eggs a day aren’t too much?
For decades, many specialists have advised to limit the consumption of eggs or egg yolks. A common recommendation says 2-6 yolks per week should do good. But there aren’t much scientific support for these numbers.
So it happens that everybody is different, and can eat eggs as per their requirement. In around 70% of people, the LDL level showed no change on eating more than 4 eggs a day, but in 30% of people the numbers went slightly up. But this is not a grief concern for people with large LDL levels and are at lower risks of heart diseases.
Coming to the point, science advises three eggs per day for a healthy diet and heart. Though they are loaded with nutrients, the high level of cholesterol can actually harm your body and heart.However, this may vary according to your body type and needs. Body-builders and athletes can easily go up to 6 eggs per day in their diet.
Let’s take a moment out and thank all the birds in the world for providing us with eggs.
