In the old days, eggs are an excellent low-calorie way to get protein, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other healthful compounds into our diet.
Eating up to 3 eggs per day is safe for the majority of the population. People with diabetes may increase their risk of heart disease by eating more than 1 egg per day.
Eggs also contain fats. We cannot live without some fat. All cell membranes need fats. Nuts, seeds, cheese, butter, fish and meats provide different fats.
Overall diet quality is more important than the number of eggs to eat each day.
