Wouldn’t want to contradict your own doctor, but the majority of cholesterol in your blood is made in your own liver and does not come from what you eat (it is this process that the "statin" drugs affect). Also, there are not only the new (fairly pricey) lower cholesterol eggs, but there are also several prescription and non-prescription drugs now available to reduce absorbtion of the cholesterol you do eat [e.g. natural plant sterols and stanols ( http://www.gettingwell.com/drug_info/nmdrugprofiles/nutsupdrugs/phy_0205.shtml ), available in various foods such a Benecol and Take Control margarine and also in pills such as Cholest-Off; and the new prescription drug Zetia]. Given all the various ways to improve your cholesterol, most doctors these days are allowing even high-cholesterol patients to have a few eggs per week if they like them.
Thanks for the advice.. I’ve been living on eggbeaters which are fine.. but don’t cut it when it comes to egg salad or poached.. I just look at the levels in eggs and it seems pretty high compared to other foods that I eat.
