Two forms of cholesterol exist in your body:
High-Density Lipoprotein good cholesterol.
Picks up excess cholesterol from the walls of blood vessels and eliminates it from the body.
Regular exercise can help maintain a high level of this good cholesterol.
Low-Density Lipoprotein bad cholesterol.
Carries cholesterol around the body and can deposit it in the walls of the blood vessels.
Eating foods high in saturated fat and being overweight can lead to an increased level of this bad cholesterol.
Nutrition guidelines recommend that a healthy individual can have up to seven eggs a week² and those on a cholesterol lowering diet can have four to six eggs a week³.
