Our expert says:
Eggs are an excellent food being rich in proteins, vitamins and minerals, BUT they do have a very high cholesterol content which can cause an increase in blood cholesterol levels which are associated with heart disease. For this reason the SA Heart Foundation advises that adults should not eat more than 4 eggs per week. A hard boiled egg contains 152 cal or 352 kJ per 100g (i.e. 2 eggs as 1 egg weighs about 50 g).
