Eating eggs

Have a question about your low-carbohydrate lifestyle for our experts? Ask it here.

Your question:
Eating eggs is supposed to be okay on a low-carb diet, but are they healthy? First they were bad, now they're good. What gives?

The expert answers: Eggs are among the healthiest foods around, providing lots of protein and minerals in the yolk, which unfortunately, also contains the fat.

If your cholesterol is under control, eggs are good, cheap food. Three eggs (not fried) are much healthier for you than a three-ounce fast food burger any day -- or fried chicken, for that matter. With eggs, it's relative. I see many people who will eat high-fat, fried foods, and one egg per week; this is absurd! I suggest you eat eggs, and avoid fast-food burgers and fried meats.
