Eggs are one one of my main sources of protein, and I eat the whole egg - 3-4 times a week. The yolk in a large egg is only about 53 calories, so it doesn't make that much difference calorically. I had my cholesterol checked a couple of months ago, and it was 158, which is considered very good.
I don't believe in eating artificial foods, but if your cholesterol is high, you can make changes to your nutrition like just using the egg white. I'm definitely not a proponent of egg beaters.
Motivation will get you to the start line; discipline will get you to the finish.
