Is there anything wrong if I eat 5 eggs every single day? Been doing this for months and I worry that it might affect my health in some way.
5 dozen of eggs come on
Eggs contain niacin, Cyanocobalamin, folate, pyridoxine, and riboflavin, vitamins that help your body metabolise protein and carbohydrates more efficiently, as well as other effects (this is off the top of my had so I dont remember everything).
That's too many dude. You don't need a lot of cholesterol. 4 eggs worth overloads cells, triggering reverse cholesterol transport. If your liver is extremely good, it can get rid of surplus cholesterol for a few days, but chronic, frequent, liver stress will cause inflammation and damage your body's ability to excrete excess cholesterol.
That's right, goyim, avoid eggs at all costs. It's not like cholesterol is the precursor to testosterone or anything.
Even research funded by the egg industry shows that it's better to avoid egg yolks
But cholesterol is a steroidal precursor.
And if for some dumb reason you are stupid enough or vegan cucked enough not to eat cholesterol your body has to produce to just to keep your dumb ass alive. That is right you need cholesterol just to live....
>The first and rate-limiting step in gonadal and adrenal steroidogenesis is the transfer of the steroidogenic substrate cholesterol from the outer mitochondrial membrane to the inner membrane mediated by the cholesterol transport protein steroidogenic acute regulatory protein (StAR).
Not cholesterol synthesis, not dietary cholesterol, not intestinal cholesterol transport, not blood cholesterol, not cholesterol uptake into the cell.
This mantra is as foolish and myopic as "durr calories are a precursor for muscle growth, so if I eat a billion a day I will get super ripped!" Biology doesn't work like that. Like practically everything else cholesterol is bad in excess.
Yes, I'm getting to that point.
I'm about 1.5 months into my first truly serious gym/diet routine, and I fucking hate eggs and chicken breasts like you wouldn't believe. Or, actually, I'm sure you believe it entirely.
I eat a carton of 12 a dozen eggs everyday.i been doing this for yrs now and I made great ginas and my healthy has been pretty good so far so id say its fine op
>le ebil yolk meme
found the anon thats not making it
Shit I eat 4 eggs a day. The study says it raised HDL though so I'll probably just eat fewer eggs instead of completely cutting them out altogether
I only eat naturally hatched eggs. Every week i drive to one local farm and i buy 150 eggs . I alway see those chikens running happy and eating healthy stuff . I even pet them. Those chickens are ripped and can fly for a couple of seconds . Then i lift hard for every potential chicken that went into my gains . Buy natural eggs guys - no antibiotics and bullshit.
It depends strongly on the rest of your diet
If you eat a lot of oats, green vegetables, get 40g+ of fiber daily, get lots of omega 3s, and eat 0g of added sugar, eggs will be a healthy addition
The oats/fiber cancel out the cholesterol, whilst still leaving you with the protein and micros
>The oats/fiber cancel out the cholesterol
Or the cholesterol cancels out the oats/fiber. It's not like the point of healthy food is to combat the other unhealthy foods you eat. They're supposed to benefit you.
Fiber binds to cholesterol but you're already producing cholesterol that needs to be removed. By default, you need that fiber to regulate your body's own synthesized cholesterol. Adding 5 eggs worth of dietary cholesterol just works against the action of the fiber.
You need a lot of soluble fibre to counter a dozen eggs worth of cholesterol

I agree eggs are shit; but I disagree with your above statement, at least in regards to dietary and serum cholesterol, beyond a certain range of serum cholesterol we don't see any improvements in CVD incidence (I think it was 150mg/dl IIRC). If you can maintain that through well planned a diet yet still eating moderate sources of dietary cholesterol (lean meats as opposed to eggs), why bother lowering it any further by eliminating the meat?
Or was your comment only in regards to eggs, if so I agree.
I'm mainly talking about eggs since they're such a concentrated source of dietary cholesterol, but yeah, if you're able to maintain perfect cholesterol levels throughout your life, CVD likely won't be an issue for you. This is hard to do for most people who don't have the genetics for it, and even moreso for people who eat a lot of eggs.
cholesterol-loaded chylomicrons are harmful too and wouldn't be seen on a fasting lipid panel. you'd need a cholesterol absorption inhibitor like ezetimibe to prevent those
Evidence shows no appreciable relationship between consumption of dietary cholesterol and serum cholesterol, consistent with the conclusions of the AHA/ACC report. Cholesterol is not a nutrient of concern for overconsumption.
