How Many Eggs You Should Eat In A Day
Whole eggs are among the most nutritious foods on the planet.
Just imagine… A whole egg contains all the nutrients needed to turn a single cell into an entire baby chicken.
A large egg contains 77 calories with 6 grams of quality protein. Eggs are among the best sources of the essential amino acids.
However, eggs have gotten a bad reputation because the yolks are high in cholesterol. In fact, a single medium sized egg contains 186 mg of cholesterol, which is 62% of the recommended daily intake.
How many whole eggs should you eat a day?
The science is clear that up to 3 whole eggs per day are perfectly safe for healthy people who are trying to stay healthy. I personally eat 3 whole eggs per day after my workout session.
How many egg whites should you eat a day?
You can eat egg whites as many as you want. A large egg contains 6 grams of quality protein. So if you want to take 30 gram protein from eggs, you can eat 5 egg whites to meet your protein requirement.
How to eat eggs safely?
Eating raw eggs can cause food poisoning. This is because eggs may contain salmonella bacteria, which can cause serious illness. People who eat boiled eggs or lightly cooked eggs should not experience any health problems, but cooking eggs thoroughly is the safest option if you are concerned about food poisoning.
How to store eggs safely?
Store eggs away from other foods in a refrigerator. It’s a good idea to use your fridge’s egg tray because this helps to keep eggs separate. If you have a boiled egg that you want to keep in the fridge, don’t leave it more than 2 days.
