Calories in Eggs -SEO Test

Calories in Eggs

As part of the ranking speed tests that we are doing, I thought I’d write a quick article on egg calories. I checked the number of calories in eggs online, after Kai’s personal trainer mentioned an egg and fruit diet for a few days, eating one egg and one piece of fruit every hour from 9am to 6pm. Apparently it aids weight loss when sitting at a desk and training two evenings a week and you get all the vitamins, nutrients and carbohydrates that you need over a short period.

Calories in Egg White

Egg whites are low in calories, are full of protein, have no fat and no cholesterol. They are, apparently, very good for you, but it’s not advisable to take egg whites in their raw state. There are 17 calories in an egg white, if it’s a fairly large egg. There are obviously less calories in a smaller egg, and more in a really large egg.

Calories in Egg Yolks

An egg yolk has many healthy ingredients, promoting healthy skin and clearer vision. An egg Yolk contains healthy amounts of B vitamins, iron, riboflavin and Vitamin A. Egg yolks have 59 calories in them. Again, that’s for a large egg.

Egg Yolk Cholesterol Issues 

One thing to be aware of is the fact that egg yolks contain very high cholesterol levels - two thirds of the Governments recommended daily limit, so if you have any issues with cholesterol - eggs are not for you, unless you throw the yolk away!

Calories in Cooked Eggs

The egg’s calories alter when you add cooking oil, butter, milk, etc and below you will see the average number of calories in the different ways of cooking eggs:

  • Hard boiled egg 76 calories
  • Fried egg 92 calories
  • Poached egg 76 calories
  • Scrambled eggs 100 calories (assuming a touch of oil and milk)

I’ll let you know how the speed ranking test goes as well as Kai’s three day diet!

Update (Feb 3rd, 2008) :

Kai stuck to the diet for two days - and hasn’t looked at a boiled egg since! He has lost weight though and as for the test, we made page one of Google for number of calories in eggs and various other terms, in four minutes. It’ll be interesting to see if the term holds it’s position in the medium to long term.

Egg Yolk Says:

Nicely done. This is one good way of getting nutritional facts from eggs. Egg whites really are a good source of protein.

In the grand pattern of things you secure an A for effort. Where exactly you actually misplaced me was first on all the particulars. As it is said, the devil is in the details… And that could not be much more true in this article. Having said that, allow me inform you exactly what did work. Your text is actually very convincing which is most likely the reason why I am making an effort in order to comment. I do not make it a regular habit of doing that. Second, although I can see the jumps in logic you make, I am not certain of just how you appear to unite your details which in turn help to make your conclusion. For the moment I will yield to your point however trust in the foreseeable future you link your facts much better. What the hell are you talking about? Jumps in logic? Have you been drinking, Thomas? :) BM
