This morning, I opened SparkPeople, and I was quite bothered by what I saw.
Before I could get to my content, there was an advertisement for eggs. And it proclaims, "a healthy start to your day!" or something along those lines.
Well, yesterday I did have eggs to start my day. 2 eggs, which I think is the minimum number of eggs that people eat. (I suppose there are people out there who eat just one egg, but I haven't seen it!)
So, by starting my day with 2 eggs, guess what else I started my day with? 368 mg of cholesterol. Out of context, that may not seem like too much. But when I signed up for SP, they give you nutritional goals. One of mine is to keep cholesterol below 300 mg per day.
I don't eat eggs every day; but if I did, I would be starting my day with more cholesterol than I should eat in a single day! So I would say, it's a good thing I don't!
I hope that SP rethinks the advertisements they accept!
