Americans can now eat eggs guilt free, according to new nutritional recommendations issued by the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Department of Health and Human Services.

In the first guidelines issued since 2011 the government also gave the green light to other high cholesterol foods, and drinking up to five cups of coffee a day.

In 1977, the guidelines had recommended avoiding cholesterol, which negatively impacted egg sales.

"The U.S. has joined many other countries and expert groups like the American Heart Association and the American College of Cardiology that do not have an upper limit for cholesterol intake in their dietary guidelines," said Mitch Kanter, the Executive Director of the Egg Nutrition Center, an egg advocacy group.

The recommendations also said Americans should limit their daily caloric intake of sugars to 10 percent, a first.

Calories coming from saturated fats found in foods like red meat, butter, cheese, whole milk and ice cream should also be limited to 10 percent, according to the guidelines.
