how many Eggs do you eat daily

Sometimes I cant stand eggs but this week I am eating like 5-7 eggs a day. Next week I will probably be sick of them LOl. How many eggs does everyone eat?

Two a day on the weekdays in the form of muffin quiches and three egg omelets on the weekends. The incredible edible egg! Don't ask me about bacon. Heh.

It varies. I usually have 4 eggs per day but I occasionally have a few more, and sometimes, a lot more. Eggs are one of the best foods we can eat.

I have never once been sick of eggs. Thank goodness!

Two. A very few times 3. I'd like to eat 6 but trying not to. I've never gotten sick of eggs but I feel like I could if I always ate that many.

I'm averaging at least 2 a day (usually hard boiled), but have had up to 4 or 5 on any given day, haven't gotten sick of them either.

I've just 'upped' my egg limit to 4 a day. I don't like meat. So now it's 28 eggs a week. I adore eggs and could live on them alone. Lol

I feel great today. FINALLY my scales went down 2 whole pounds after 2 continuous weeks of no needle even budging!! Grrrrrr. Total of 8 pounds now in 1 and 1/2 months.

*hugs*

I eat anywhere from 2 eggs on down days to 6-7 eggs on some up days. Sometimes I use Egg Beaters just for convenience, but mostly it's local fresh farmed eggs from a guy I know at the farmer's market.

I'm a vegetarian and so eggs are my primary protein source.

I wouldn't eat more than 3 eggs in one meal, but that's because I'd find it boring. Mostly at breakfast. Although sometimes I also incorporate an egg or 2 in a lunch or dinner dish, like meatballs or moussaka.

2 eggs for breakfast every day and then 2 more for lunch a few times a week.

I just started eating breakfast again. I have been trying to make sure that I eat at least 1200 calories a day and this is the only way that I can come close.

I seem to go in cycles...
Sometimes I will have 3 for breakfast, but then sometimes None...like today.
If I have Oopsies...I count 2 Oopsies=1egg.
I'm trying to vary my food plan, so I get variety.
With that said, I love eggs...plain, omlette, hard boiled, egg-salad, Oopsies...any way you fix them.

Really depends on what I plan for meals.

The most is probably 4 per day, scrambled eggs for breakfast, mock French toast for dinner or deviled eggs as a mid-day snack.

Interesting that nobody asks how many chicken breasts or servings of kale one eats in a day or week. To quote a favorite blogger, "eggs are the perfect food-there's enough nutrition in one to grow a whole baby chicken".

Don't fear eggs. Eat as many as you feel hungry for, pastured and organic if possible. Always eat the yolks, that's where most of the nutrition is.

I eat very few eggs. I always feel more hungry after eating them. I will make deviled eggs which stay with me more. Probably 2 a week on average.

My egg consumption varies by quite a lot, just like my other protein sources. Sometimes I eat 7-8 in a day, sometimes none for several days to a couple of weeks. I don't think about it one way or the other (except when I'm out and want some!).

I was eating an average of 3-4 eggs a day until I read that they could be a cause of inflammation.
My joints were so painful that the doctor ordered blood tests which showed I did have a very high level of inflammation. I cut eggs from my diet and the pain reduced straight away.
To bad because I loved scrambled eggs for breakfast but I would rather be pain free so I now have half an avocado instead.

Wow!
I am going to look into this.
My joints have been hurting.
I am so glad you figured it out and are feeling better!
Have you repeated the blood test now that you have cut out the eggs?
