Carbohydrate grams in eggs & egg products.
An egg contains less than 1 carb gram making it a star of the carb dieting world. However, there is a major health concern given the amount of cholesterol housed within the egg - specifically in the yolk.
If you are considering a carb restricted diet it's imperative that you meet with your doctor beforehand.
For individuals with heart issues, kidney issues or who may have diabetes, a diet that is restricted in carbs can trigger all sorts of health woes - including death.
Take consideration that many health issues such as heart problems don't make themselves known until things have reached a serious stage - as in the event of a heart attack.
So be wise - and lose the unwanted weight safely.

Low Carb Dieting Information
Most carb diets require that the dieter calculate net carbs throughout the day - and there is a cap for the total number of carbs that are allowed to be consumed.
As long as one is counting, we recommend counting calories. Why so? Because carbs don't control what we weigh and calories do.
Establishing healthy eating patterns is the main goal as a healthy eating pattern is key to life-long weight maintenance.
While a low carb diet plan can assist in quick weight loss, once the diet is discarded most former low carb dieters quickly regain the lost weight.
When dieters focus on establishing a healthy eating pattern they are more apt to lose the weight and keep it off for good. Smart eating habits equal a healthy weight that can last throughout a lifetime.
