I eat at least 2 eggs every morning, most often with half an avocado for breakfast. I have had very odorous farts and am wondering if it's due to the eggs (They're the only thing I eat consistently from day to day). If it is the eggs, does this mean I'm intolerant? I basically subsist off of them for breakfast and can't imagine having to give them up. Thoughts?

Yes eggs cause gas in stomach, mostly the white part of the egg cause gas in stomach.

I go through phases of eating lots of eggs daily too and eventually it gives me stomach upset. When I know it's hitting me I gotta lay off them about a week or so and that kinda reboots my system. Try phasing them in/out. For some reason baked and hard boiled eggs make my farts smell like a geyser.

I stopped eating eggs when I went on a rotation diet over three years ago. Last year my doctor suggested I could use digestive enzimes to help digest the eggs. I got loose stools and foul odered gas, even with the digestive enzimes, so I don't eat eggs anymore, though I occationally eat cole slaw and potato salad, which are usually made with mayonnaise. All of my life I had a problem with gas which caused me no end of embarassment. I find gluten - which I don't eat now, but sometimes it creeps into my diet - gives me lots of gas with little odor.

if your farts smell fishy, it could be due to the choline in the egg yolks.
& if you are really unlucky, you may have gone one step further & have a rare metabolic disorder know as trimethylaminuria (aka 'fish odor syndrome')
(if your farts do Not smell fishy, then choline is probably not the cause)
