Hi everyone, I've been eating on and off paleo for 4 years now and have been very strict (whole30) for the last 6 months. I usually eat 2-4 eggs per day but tried to stay egg free every once in a while since I already knew about how easy it is to develop chicken egg (white) allergies. Now all of a sudden, I can???t eat eggs anymore although I really used to love them. I feel sick when I think about eggs and I don???t want to force myself to eat them since I think it might be a warning sign that I should take a break from them. I don???t have any physical symptoms, there is just this sudden and very intense reluctance to eat them. Has anyone experienced the same? If yes: did it ever stop and how long did that take? Or have any of you first developed an aversion against eggs and then later on an egg intolerance or allergy? I will miss eggs so much. :-( They were such a great source of protein... I don???t want to eat meat or fish for breakfast, legumes are out of the question and I don???t want to eat too much dairy or any kind of powder or other non whole foods either. I guess I???ll just stop eating breakfast and call it IF. I eat only organic, free-range eggs and I have no way of purchasing dugg eggs as a replacement. I don't want to eat only egg yolks since that seems terribly wasteful to me. Looking forward to any kind of input. Thanks! Carina

It's not in your head, people with gut or thyorid problems have enhanced sensitivity to foods. It could be because the animals were fed soy or some allergen. One thing you could do is try getting eggs from another place. If it doesn't work, you could look at the gut or thyroid function.
I found that the best way to improve the whole body for me personally, aside from diet, was taking vitamin E, mixed tocopherols supplements. The improvement is quick, in about a month. Now, the problem is that most vitamin E mixed tocopherols supplements are made from soy, which is a common allergen, so it might be a challenge to find a good vitamin E supplement that doesn't give you bad reactions. However, I had success with 4spectrum. It improved everything, including digestion and food sensitivities.
"I don’t have any physical symptoms, there is just this sudden and very intense reluctance to eat them."
Yeah, it's all in your head, you've scared yourself into thinking they are going to give you an allergy and kill you. Step back, relax and make yourself an omelette, you'll live.
I get almost instant nausea from conventional eggs, but never from the free-range type. It's too bad those aren't working for you.
If you live near a Chinese market, you might be able to get duck eggs. They have a different fat/protein ratio, and they're bigger too. Some people who are intolerant to chicken eggs can eat duck eggs.
