Can you have too many eggs?

Is it possible to have too many eggs in one day?

i know some people are doing the meat and egg only eating plan right now but i just wondered if its possible you can eat too many?

Whats the most you have had in one day? x

I think the most I've had in a day is 6. I've developed a food sensitivity to them now thanks to a serious illness I had last year...just kinda broke down my immune system. Now I can't eat them without some wicked nausea...along with mushrooms, almonds, garlic, and nightshades. Fun! Fun! LOL!

For what it's worth, I think eating eggs is healthy, but having a varied diet is even better. Too much of anything can't be good for you. IMO!

I only have 2 per day but I think if you can tolerate more than that then go for it.

I'm afraid that I'll burn out of having any food if I eat a lot of it every day.

I usually have 2 fried duck eggs a day, but have been known to have up to 10 in a day (breakfast fried, lunch crustless quiche, snack 2 x hardboiled, dinner egg curry) - and I'm still here! It's not often I have a day without eggs, really.

When you want to sit on the peak of the roof and sing as the sun rises, you might want to cut back on the eggs.

Or if you start thinking seriously about the protein content of bugs and worms....you might want to cut back on the eggs.

If you are sensitive to arachidonic acid, then yes, you should limit eggs. I think the only way to know is by trial and error, basically, if you start retaining water or are not losing weight for a while, stop eating eggs and see what happens.

Yes and no. Eggs are extremely healthful, even in fairly large quantities. But our systems can indeed become sensitized to the proteins in them and have an immune reaction to them. I had issues ith that several years ago, though it was exacerbated by wheat/oat/dairy/yeast sensitivities. Now I'm fine with three or so per day and have had no recurrent health issues, but it CAN become a problem for some folks. Most are just fine with a moderate amount of eggs cooked each day.

That's still cooked . Completely raw eggs are much harder to digest and can rapidly increase the rate of sensitivity in an individual prone to it (the albumen is the biggest culprit, not the yolk) so poach or soft boiled, at a minimum, is preferred. Over easy is just fine, too. Raw in shakes every single day might cause some issues in vulnerable individuals (and be fine for others, but it is worth being aware, nonetheless!).

Interesting. Would pasteurized eggs address that issue with the shakes?

When I first began LC, I was eating 1 to 1.5 dozen eggs per week. After about 2 months of doing so, I developed an allergic reaction. Every time I would eat eggs, I would break out in hives and my throat was itchy. I stopped eating eggs. I finally reintroduced them 5 months later and I'm fine now, but I only eat 2 or 3 every couple of weeks.

I'd say 4-5 is the most I will ever eat and usually no more than 2.

Sometimes I will scramble two eggs in the morning then think "Hey, I should devil up some of these babies!".

I find I stay quite full when eating eggs.
