Alot of people have eggs for breakfast - be it scrambled eggs, poached eggs or simply plain sunny side up. Eggs are very high in nutrients and energy with ample amount of vitamins such as Vitamin A (important for good night vision, general cell growth & healthy skin) and Vitamin E (an antioxidant that works well with Vitamin C and selenium to prevent damage to your body from free radicals), proteins and fats.
One egg contains over 6grams of protein and several nutrients, which is excellent for our body. However, one egg also contains about 212 mg of cholesterol. Since the recommendation for cholesterol consumption is about 300 mg per day, the large amount of cholesterol in eggs may prevent many people from eating them.
The cholesterol in eggs really shouldn't scare you away completely. Most of the cholesterol in your body is made by your liver and the amount of cholesterol in your diet may not have as big an impact on your blood cholesterol as people once thought. In fact, you can eat one egg every day without harming your cholesterol and other blood-fat levels. That's really good news because eggs are very satisfying. Eating one egg as part of a healthy breakfast may help you lose weight by keeping you from getting hungry later in the morning.
One egg has about 80 calories with more than five grams of fat, so keep that in mind if you need to watch your fat and calorie intake. One egg each day is good, but eating three or four eggs every day may add too much fat.
