28 eggs in a week?

Answered on September 12, 2014
Created October 31, 2011 at 7:11 AM

I eat 28 eggs / week for breakfast. I am looking to change something up and I am considering reducing egg intake. Any thoughts?

EDIT: I continue to eat 28 eggs a week. Mostly yolkes from hard or soft boiled eggs.

Matt - More varied diet does not always mean a better variety of nutrients ESPECIALLY when we are talking about eating a lot of eggs. Eggs are full of a large variety of vitamins and minerals as well as cholesterol, saturated fat, etc. And, frying them in butter gives you even more amazing benefits. I wouldn't do this for a decade but keep doing it until you get bored of it.

Christopher, your egg broth is nice! :) I make a simple version of that. Tea w/ a dab of beef drippings, with a tablespoon of half-and-half, stir in an egg, or just a beaten yolk. Sometimes I add chives and pepper.

no overdo, this is the only way to see what works and doesn't. Moderation is pure BS and for weaklings. I hope you are only eating eggs from a farm and not (NEVER) from the supermarket.

The African Curry was an awesome add-in. That sauce is crazy good and have used it with shrimp and chicken, too, and cooked good old cauliflower in it. Yum. Hey @Julies K - you been braising any kale? That is my hands-down favourite for breakkie: braised and finished with some lemon juice, seared steak, roasted potatoes - with or without eggs. Tasty.

Maggie used the eggs to lose 20 pounds in 2 weeks in an Atkins style crash diet, so yes, that was a one time thing. And Cool hand Luke ate 50 eggs in one hour on a bet, although I doubt Paul Newman actually ate 50 during the filming of that scene.

Travis, I eat about one lb of meat and four eggs each day in 2-3 meals. Suplimenting with fat (butter, cheese and cream) I may start discarding the whites and stopping the dairy fats supliment. Would one or two yolks and a chunk of meat for each meal be the way to approach things? Should I have a non-meat meal during the day? Eggs are pastured (12/week from neighbor) and best I can find for the rest.

I don't agree a diet with less eggs is more varied, but less eggs = less omega 3. If you wanna eat seasonal, you gotta cut out the eggs.

Could you give us some context? Is there a reason why you consider reducing your egg intake? Don't you like them anymore? Without data I see no reason for you to reduce or not to reduce your egg intake.

Ok Eric! As promised, ways to make those damn eggs a little more interesting:

  • Hash with poached eggs - instead of always just regular meat and potato try with smoked salmon and sweet potato to change it up-
  • Add to smoothies-
  • Baked in cups with meat and veg,-
  • Homemade mayo, Aioli, hollandaise, top the eggs with sauce. Eggs with a side of eggs-
  • Custard - savory or lightly sweetened-
  • Frittata - full size or minis-
  • Egg salad! On greens you could probably take down 8 at once. Amend with bacon, shrimp, turkey, herbs to make it not just... egg salad--
  • Deviled eggs-
  • Hard boiled eggs - crackle the shells and let steep in gf soy sauce, tea, wine, for some extra flavour--
  • Pizza - make an egg-centric pizza with a gf crust. Crack the eggs on top right before you pull it out of the oven. Are you eating sprouted corn tortillas ever? Make minis using those as the base--
  • Poach into any soup or stock-
  • Tortilla Espanola!-
  • Homemade ice cream-

I made this North African Curry a few weeks ago to play around, it was good and I'll do it again, something different and tasty, the bullet points are a pain so just typing out, sorry! Lots of little steps but worth it in the end. Try once in these measurements and if you like then just make the sauce and double/triple it up and toss into the fridge. You can always add the eggs at another time. I had this with some cauliflower and tiny bites of roasted potatoes + regular and sweet, firm cauliflower with crispy potatoes and this = one nice meal:

4 large or extra large eggs, hard-boiled 1 tablespoon fat 1 teaspoon cumin seed 1 medium onion, finely chopped 3-inch piece cinnamon stick, broken in half 2 teaspoons ground coriander, toasted 1/2 teaspoon dried red pepper flakes 1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric 2 cloves garlic, thinly sliced About 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 medium or 1 large ripe tomato, pureed (about 3/4 cup) 1 cup water 1 tablespoon coarsely chopped cilantro leaves

In your pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the cumin and cook, stirring, for about 15 seconds, until slightly darkened and fragrant.

Add the onion and cinnamon. Cook, stirring frequently, for about 6 minutes, until the onion starts to brown. Add the coriander, red pepper flakes, turmeric, garlic, and salt.

Continue cooking for about 2 minutes, until the garlic has lightly toasted and aromatic. Lower the heat as needed.

Add the tomato and cooking for 3 to 5 minutes, stirring, until it starts to smell nice. Add the water, bring to a boil. Lower the heat to low, cover, and gently simmer for 5 minutes.

Halve each of the peeled eggs lengthwise. When the sauce has finished simmering, uncover and slide the eggs in, cut side up. Increase the heat to medium-low and simmer the eggs, spooning sauce on the top, until the eggs are hot. Adjust the heat as necessary. The sauce should cook down and thicken a bit.

Transfer the eggs and sauce to bowls. Garnish with the cilantro, eat!

I eat roughly that many eggs a week, the catch being that I mostly only eat the yolks. Egg yolks are just such nutrient powerhouses and great sources of fat that I see no reason why 4 a day would be anything less than beneficial. There is possibly a slight potential that one could develop an intolerance to egg whites from eating too many of them. Possibly. See my question here:

I think that it's nice to take a break at least once from something you eat so much of...you may find that you feel better in some way that you didn't even know you weren't feeling fabulous...you could also find that nothing changes, but I like to know these kinds of things about myself! Just arm yourself with a plethora of easy protein options(stews, roasts, roast chicken, fish, soups, sausages, sardines, jerky, ground meats, etc.)so you don't resort to eggs simply out of a need for convenience.

Smart thinking, Rogue...I didn't know just how sick eating SAD made me until I gave up SAD. Big difference! It's surprisingly easy to get used to feeling sub-optimal.

One of the ways I beat the egg hum drum was to boil beef or chicken stock broth, add some pepper and crack a couple eggs into it. It boils into a stringy goodness almost like noodles.

I do this all the time into my bone broth. So good! Blend one into kefir, too, with some berries -- it's delicious.

Christopher, your egg broth is nice! :) I make a simple version of that. Tea w/ a dab of beef drippings, with a tablespoon of half-and-half, stir in an egg, or just a beaten yolk. Sometimes I add chives and pepper.

Brain-liquefying paradigm shift: eat those eggs for dinner rather than breakfast.

I often eat that many a DAY! On workout days I usually have 6 raw eggs with some cream or coconut cream 5-6 times a day. On rest days I might only have a dozen or so, often raw or scrambled. I love em..

As long as you're not a diabetic (counterintuitive), or have some other underlying source of chronic inflammation why stop?

If you are looking for a replacement, why not try other eggs, duck eggs come to mind. I find i'm also a big fan of mushrooms with eggs. 100g of Some Oyster Mushrooms -> http://nutritiondata.self.com/facts/vegetables-and-vegetable-products/3050/2 could replace an egg perhaps?

I've been eating 30 egg whites and and about 14 whole eggs a week (on average) for the past month and I've experienced a decreased appetite (through to late noon) and an increase of about 2 lbs of lean mass in thirty days. I'm experimenting with a lot of different supps (creatine, vitamin C load in the morning, homemade protein bars w/ whey protein isolate etc.,) so those might also have something to do with the muscle gain.

I think as far as nutrition is concerned everything should revolve around one short term goal and one long term goal, but if you're asking for just a egg substitute I would go maybe with just trying a little salmon, salami and a handful of raw almonds for breakfast instead.

Thanks Dude! Great info on the eggs. Congrats on the gain. You might experiment with a cup of cottage cheese at night as well. :-)

If they're not currently pastured, then switching to those and eating fewer would result in largely the same nutrient density (aside from cholesterol and fat). If you have no digestive issues currently or any sort of problem, I think you should keep going with what you're doing. Whether or not our ancestors could have eaten that many eggs is completely irrelevant. The important thing is having the essential nutrients present in bioavailable forms, which is certainly the case with eggs.

Travis, I eat about one lb of meat and four eggs each day in 2-3 meals. Suplimenting with fat (butter, cheese and cream) I may start discarding the whites and stopping the dairy fats supliment. Would one or two yolks and a chunk of meat for each meal be the way to approach things? Should I have a non-meat meal during the day? Eggs are pastured (12/week from neighbor) and best I can find for the rest.

do you get blood work done? its not just for diabetics. What do the numbers say? I eat at least 21 eggs a week many weeks more. Can't wait for spring so I can have eggs with warm runny yolks and asparagus every morning.

But isn't it possible that one day there will be another backlash against eating too many eggs due to some now-unknown reason (like some hormone, toxin, newly identified protein, etc). In my opinion it's best not to overdo anything...

no overdo, this is the only way to see what works and doesn't. Moderation is pure BS and for weaklings. I hope you are only eating eggs from a farm and not (NEVER) from the supermarket.
