View Full Version : Too many eggs?
07-05-2007, 04:50 PM
Any guesses on how many eggs are to many in a week? Does the number differ if your trying lose weight?
Tonight I wanted to take some leftover bbqed carne asada and through it in with some eggs, scramble them and eat it with a nice fruit salad.
Tomorrow I was going to make a shrimp salad with a couple hard-boiled eggs thrown in. Is this to much?

In the past, I've eaten 2 dozen eggs in one week and have lived to tell about it.
Seriously, what's wrong with eggs?

Try to get "grassfed" eggs or the high omega-3 ones, then there really shouldn't be an issue.
I used to be part of the Primal Diet group where many people ate close to a dozen A DAY and didn't seem to suffer any ill effects...

I'm at about a 6 a day since march. With the only problem being a stack of empty egg cartons that's almost as tall as I am!

been doing 5-6/day for a long time now. haven't gotten around to the omega-3 eggs yet but really want to try them...i feel it's a "if it ain't broke don't fix it" matter of switching though.

I frequently eat 8 a day. Isn't if fact that dietary cholesterol does not impact blood cholesterol? I thought Cholesterol is all about insulin and refined carbs?
I eat tons of eggs and my cholesterol is low.
Why not eat and many as you want for a month and if you do not die get your cholesterol checked.

or maybe insulin triggers the storage of dietary cholesterol? Anyway to be safe I would 86 the refined carbs, maybe Rob will comment.

Personally, I would avoid eating large amounts of any one food every day. Virtue in moderation, and all that. Like Soylent Green, this probably varies from person to person.

I don't see a problem with "large" consumption...certianly try to get N-3 eggs...and like Daniel said, try to mix thigns up.
I have to admit I suck at this...eggs virtually every day jsut out of habit and convenience.
Sound slike you were making Machaca! Aie! Mi dio!

Not sure what Machaca is, but my carne asada and eggs were good, so was the shrimp salad.
I just wanted to make sure it wasnt going impede my fat loss to much by eating too many eggs. Im down from ~290 (I stepped off the scale before seeing it stop, I was so disgusted) in March to 255 as of this morning following a Fast-5/Paleo diet off and on and very good/intense workouts.

Dr. Mercola (www.mercola.com) suggests not to eat eggs more then a few days in a row if they are cooked, or otherwise you may develop a slight allergy.
He also says that if you eat raw eggs that you can eat eggs(cooked or raw) as much as you like without developing an allergy.
I have found the first part to be true. I am not brave enough to eat raw eggs yet. I would like to start doing it though.

I eat eggs raw, but only if they are from free range, grass-eating chicken. I'll eat regular ol' Omega 3 eggs if they're cooked, but not raw.

"Only stir with a fork gently, because egg protein easily gets damaged on molecular level (see site23), even by mixing / blending"
(from the link)
Did not know that.
