Hi with time you will be able to eat it. During the start you will face trouble. Or else tell doctor to provide you some other option rather than egg. something in veg itself which will stay helpful for you.

If you want to gain weight then you should not worry about it and eat 2 whole eggs everyday in any form like boiled or omelet. Too much of anything even if healthy, is not right and you should eat everything in limits.

There are 2 types of cholesterol and one need to have the knowledge about what is good and what is not to be healthy. The yellow part of the egg has cholesterol but the good one and you don't need to worry if you eat limited eggs.

Hello Gita,
So you have tasted egg for first time and how it is can you share it for us.And it is so good to health also since it contains proteins and vitamins you will get more energy from that and it also come under veg only.

Hi, Gita,

The following will explain why you shouldn't consume eggs.

Approximately 300 million chickens kept for egg production in the U.S. are confined in \";battery cages\"; where four hens are typically crowded into a wire cage measuring just sixteen inches wide. The cages are stacked in tiers and lined up in rows in huge factory warehouses. The hens are crowded so tightly, that they cannot even stretch their wings or legs, and they cannot fulfill normal behavioral patterns or social needs. Constantly rubbing against the wire cages, they suffer from severe feather loss, and their bodies are covered with bruises and abrasions.

Practically all laying hens are \";debeaked\"; in order to reduce injuries resulting from excessive pecking, an aberrant behavior which occurs when the confined birds are bored and frustrated and driven to aggression. Debeaking is a painful procedure which involves cutting through bone, cartilage, and soft tissue to remove part of the beak.

Laying more than 250 eggs per year, laying hens' bodies are severely taxed, and they commonly suffer from diseases like \";fatty liver syndrome\"; and \";cage layer fatigue\";. Calcium deficiency and osteoporosis are rampant among hens on egg factories - caused by intensive egg production and inadequate exercise. The birds lose an exorbitant amount of calcium as one industry journal (Lancaster Farming) explains, \";... a hen will use a quantity of calcium for yearly egg production that is greater than her entire skeleton by 30-fold or more\";. Inadequate calcium results in broken bones, paralysis, and even death.

After one year in egg production, the birds, are classified as \";spent hens\";, at which time they are either \";force molted\"; or slaughtered. Force molting involves starving the hens for up to 18 days, keeping them in the dark, and denying them water to shock their bodies into another egg laying cycle. This process causes hens to lose more than 25% of their body weight, and it is common for between 5% and 10% to die. When they are sent to slaughter, spent hens usually end up in soups, pot pies, or similar low grade chicken meat products where their bruised and battered bodies can be shredded and the blemishes hidden from consumers. Spent hens' brittle, calcium-depleted bones typically shatter during handling and/or at the slaughterhouse.

Battery cage egg production is so cruel that it has been outlawed by European countries, and it is time for the United States to follow suit.

Uma

yes, the yolk (yellow part) is where the cholesterol is. one a day is not going to increase your cholesterol to great extremes, especially since you eat no other meats or dairy products.

yes, you can boil it...hard boil or soft boil. i don't prefer it like that, but it is ok. you can make an omelette or scrambled egg. you would want a bit of oil in the pan, or cook it in the micro. (pan is better, and not too hot). you can add things to the omelette to make it tastier, too. salt and pepper are almost needed. cheese is good, but not if you are vegan, which i think you are by 'pure vegetarian'. i find it easier to eat with toasted bread. you may want to mix a little water (or milk if you are not vegan) in w/the egg before cooking, and mix it well.

if you tire of the taste, you could always add an egg to pancake batter and make yourself a pancake to eat. this is a much easier way to eat it, and, if you are underweight, the flour, butter/margarine and syrup you use for the pancake may assist in adding some weight.

best wishes.
kevin

Since doctor has told you to eat egg you can try but if you are looking for protien you can get it from different kinds of beans.Also it's not necessary to eat eggs if you have not all this years..
I am pure vegetarian I would prefer kidney beans,chick peas,Moong...etc they are good source of protien.

Give a try before you start on eggs.

Just a thought
