The science is clear that up to 3 whole eggs per day are perfectly safe for healthy people. Summary Eggs consistently raise HDL (the “good”) cholesterol. For 70% of people, there is no increase in total or LDL cholesterol. Some people may experience a mild increase in a benign subtype of LDL. One important thing about the egg is it can easily be identified whether it's fresh or not because the fresh egg will sink in water while others will float. Morning is the best time to eat an egg till early evening snack, try to avoid it in the dinner. Another best time is after 30-45 minutes of your heavy workout. Most healthy people, though, could eat up to three whole eggs daily without the change affecting their blood chemistry negatively. Though your doctor may clear you to eat a daily egg-based breakfast, use caution if you want to lose weight. Calories still matter when you're trying to shed pounds.
