The egg is low calories, keeps you full as it's loaded with vitamins and minerals the body needs and can increase antioxidants in the body.

It seems there are many other foods that contribute to higher bad cholesterol levels but eggs have a bad reputation. Eating high cholesterol foods doesn’t automatically mean raising your cholesterol. In fact, for the first time in decades in 2017 the US Dietary Guidelines had no upper daily limit listed for dietary cholesterol. As time goes on we learn new information about food nutrition.
