What are all the nutrients present in a hard boiled egg?

What are all the nutrients present in a hard boiled egg?

Very wide variety: Eggs are among the most nutrient-rich foods, containing all essential amino acids, all B vits., Vit A & D, trace minerals including selenium, iodine and molybdenum and Omega 3 fatty acids.
They do NOT raise cholesterol and can be eaten liberally but I strongly advise choosing organic (ideally pastured) eggs.

I am currently on the dukan diet and I am eating two hard boiled eggs every day. Is it bad for my health?

I am currently on the dukan diet and I am eating two hard boiled eggs every day. Is it bad for my health?

Too much: Although no one, including me, can tell you with absolute certainty that two eggs a day will cause harm, it is generally considered a risk factor for heart disease and diabetes. If you want a healthy complete protein (all 9 amino acids) eat quinoa instead. It's gluten free. Read more

Is it bad to eat 2-3 hard boiled eggs a day? I love them & eat them as a source of protein. Also eat approx 3 cans tuna a week? Is mercury a problem?

Sort of yes to both: It is better to have a mixed diet with seasonal fruits and vegetables. Boiled eggs are fine, as long as your cholesterol is normal. Mercury in tuna is a concern, but depends on the source of tuna and it is nor feasible to provide an opinion without testing the contents of the tuna cans.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex, if you have sex.

Can having a hard boiled egg on a toast with lettuce and tomato for breakfast fattening?

Depends: It depends upon the amount of exertion during the day, but that is not an unhealthful meal. Some people avoid the fats in egg yolks, and some avoid bread, but overall, that is a fairly good simple breakfast. Read more

I am 16 and will I get high cholestrol if I eat 3 hard boiled eggs per day? I eat 3 to grow taller

Diet's not the key: Despite all the hoopla, most pathologists remain skeptical about diet as key to cardiovascular health. Several major, good studies show no effect. It's more important that you exercise and avoid smoking. Further, your food choices are unlikely to impact your height, especially from now on, but protein will help you build muscle, which is entirely under your control. Enjoy your eggs. Read more

Yes,: Sulfur is contained in several amino acids like methionine, cystine and cysteine. There are some diseases in which excess amounts of cystine are excreted called cystinuria. However, it may also be due to your diet that contains high protein content. See your doctor to follow up. Read more

Hello. Are 2 hard boiled eggs cut in half a great source of protein just like chicken, or any other types of meat?

Hello. Are 2 hard boiled eggs cut in half a great source of protein just like chicken, or any other types of meat?

YES: Eggs are such a good and complete source of amino acids/protein that they are the standard to which other foods are compared for adequacy of protein.
It is wise to choose organic eggs and ones that are pasture-raised if possible.
See http://www. Whfoods. Com/genpage. Php? Tname=foodspice&dbid=92 for a good discussion of the nutritional content of eggs.
They are just as good when not cut in half! Read more

I went for a brisk walk and after had 3 hard boiled eggs and an apple. Right after my blood sugar was 106. An hour later it was 86. Is this normal?

I went for a brisk walk and after had 3 hard boiled eggs and an apple. Right after my blood sugar was 106. An hour later it was 86. Is this normal?

Probably: 86 is a normal blood sugar. You are on glucophage (metformin) for PCOS which is also used to treat diabetes and thus could be blunting your blood sugar rise after a meal. Exercise also lowers blood sugar. Low blood sugar is below 80 but you may not symptoms until BS below 40. Your initial symptoms may be hunger. Read more
