How Many Eggs a Day are OK?

Eggs have always been under scrutiny because while they offer 6 grams of complete protein and have many essential vitamins and minerals they also contain 213 mg of cholesterol (the RDA of cholesterol is no more than 300 mg/day) - check out the nutrition label below. My recommendation: a maximum of 3-4 whole eggs per week. As an alternative to whole eggs, consider using just egg whites or “Egg Beaters”. You can also try combining egg whites and whole eggs (i.e. when making an omelet use two egg whites and one whole egg). Nutrition Content of Egg Serving Size: One Large Egg
