Eggs are free but not super free on Slimming World so I would imagine everything in moderation. They are high calories though?

Also welcome stephg40!

Eggs are a fantastic way of getting protein but high in cholesterol. I just went to read up on it a little and found:
Quote:
One large egg only has 5 grams of total fat and 1.6 grams of saturated fat, which you could fit into your daily diet. However, the same egg has 186 milligrams of cholesterol. Your cholesterol consumption should stay under 300 milligrams daily
I am on a high protein food plan and on one day I have scrambled eggs made with 2 yolks 3 whites which takes me over but you have above doubled the recommended intake according to the info I found ... I wouldn't worry about it though, it's done so just be more aware in the future?

I had a great start with Slimming World but I didn't agree with how vague they are about the 'free' foods, never really thought about the eggs because I only really ate them scrambled but now I eat them more.

Think I'm going to look into it further.

Chilli in scrambled egg is nice Bulk up a scrambled egg by using just 2 yolks and more whites like I mentioned I have above

I boil up half a dozen eggs at a time they're great for when I'm struggling. My draw back is putting salt on every mouthful

I read this today that one of the PT's reposted this morning!

There are real problems in this world. Cholesterol in egg yolks is not one of them.

I'm moving on from Boot Camp and hoping to get a little better support over April about food as well as training and this is one thing I am hoping to discuss with him. I will update ...
