WHOLE EGG SCARE: Facts and Fallacies
Muscular Development|February 2021
I can’t remember how many times over the years I’ve cracked open an egg, separated the protein-loaded egg white from the egg yolk that contains fat and cholesterol, and only consumed the egg white.
Michael J.Rudolph

Why? Because I was trying to maximize my protein intake while minimizing fat consumption, to boost muscle mass without increasing body fat. Of course, I was also concerned about my long-term health – and the discovery several decades back that high blood cholesterol levels were strongly associated with an increased risk for heart disease compelled me to avoid foods that contain cholesterol, especially whole eggs. Yet, since then a large body of scientific evidence has shown only a weak relationship between cholesterol consumption and blood cholesterol levels,1 while other studies have found that moderate egg consumption was not associated with higher risk of heart disease.2,3 One reason for the lack of association between egg consumption and heart disease is that eggs are a good source of many nutrients that may actually counterbalance a slight increase in the risk of heart disease. In addition, more recent studies have shown that not only are eggs loaded with compounds that decrease cardiovascular risks, but they also possess an abundance of molecules that boost testosterone and increase muscular performance – making eggs a reasonable part of any musclebuilding diet.
