Our expert says:
According to the SA Heart Foundation, South African adults should not have more than 4 eggs per week because of the high incidence of raised cholesterol levels in this country (one egg yolk contains more or less the entire suggested intake of 300 mg cholesterol for a day). So by all means have boiled or poached eggs 4 times a week for breakfast on wholewheat or low-GI bread toast, but don't have the eggs with mayonnaise if you are trying to lose weight, as the mayonnaise also contains more egg and has a high fat content.
