Is it healthy to eat one boiled egg each day, at breakfast?

Yes: This is a very controversial question. I believe it is not a problem, an egg is an excellent source of protein and calcium, the yolk-large cholesterol content. However this cholesterol doesn't translate in the body to the 'bad' cholesterol. Very important is check your entire lipid panel on a doc checkup. If there is a cholesterol problem, then the diet has to be individualized. What else is new! ...Read more

Is egg yolk healthy if everyday we consume one whole egg a day? Fry or boiled?

Depends on…: Your cholesterol levels. People with normal chol can now eat an egg a day; those with elevated chol should limit eggs to 2-3 times a week or even use egg whites instead of yolk. Boiled doesn't add any extra fat (unless u add butter/margerine); if frying, use non-stick pan with minimal fat (canola oil works well). Eating oatmeal or bran cereal as well will help absorb some of the chol in egg. ...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.

Are hard boiled eggs good for an upset stomach?

Drink as much water as possible, particularly if the stomach ache involves vomiting or diarrhea, as you can quickly become dehydrated. If these symptoms are not present, keep your stomach satiated with clear liquids, such as jell-o, soup broth and apple juice. ...Read more

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

almonds, sweet potato & brussel sprouts are all healthy- while organic is best, these are acceptable if grown conventionally. ...Read more
