With such a storehouse of nutrients, this is what i feel about eggs; the best way to optimum health. Here is some more nutritional information about eggs that you will find useful.

The white of one large egg contains 17 calories.
The yolk of one large egg contains 59 calories.
One large fried egg has 92 calories.
One large hard boiled egg contains 74 calories. Read more on how to hard boil eggs.
Similar to the hard boiled egg, one large poached egg also contains 74 calories.
Wondering how many calories does one large scrambled egg have? 100 calories.

These days there is a huge debate about high amounts of cholesterol in eggs. The cholesterol present in the eggs is in the egg yolk. Therefore, dietitians these days suggest one egg along with another egg white, instead of two eggs to be included in one's diet. The better would be to consume three egg whites, so that there are no bad effects of cholesterol. Eggs nutrition facts are now known to us from the information above. Hence, to avoid any side effects, the key is to eat anything in moderation.
