Yum, we love eggs for breakfast! But there are a lot of stubborn ambiguities about eating it. Because how many eggs is a healthy amount, and what about cholesterol?

What we always wonder about is the question of which is healthier to eat: a boiled egg or a fried egg? Does it matter nutritionally?

It turns out that there is indeed a difference between eating a boiled egg or a fried egg, and that is due to the way it is prepared and the fat you use. A fried egg contains about twice as much fat and saturated fat (17.6 g fat, of which 5.6 g is saturated) than a boiled egg (8.8 g fat, of which 2.9 g is saturated). That’s something to keep in mind.
