Eggs make me hungry. Anybody else feel this way?

I feel like I can eat 6-8 eggs and still not feel nearly as satisfied as when I eat a moderate amount of Bacon or Beef.

Are eggs less dense in terms of calories? not enough fat?

I dropped eggs for about 3 months...just brought them back. Ate 18 in two days without really ever feeling satisfied and actually had some digestive discomfort. I've been on a beef/bacon kick lately and that seems to really fill me up. Maybe I need more saturated fat.

I used to drink 4-6 raw eggs per day. Then I got a mild case of salmonella or another bug, and that was the end of that. I also believe that you can't process all the proteins in raw eggs, but am too lazy to google it.

Any difference if they are raw/cooked? Also what are you cooking them in? And when do you eat them?

I don't know, but try eating raw egg yolks instead. Chicken makes me hungry. Probably omega 6.

I used to be the EXACT same way. I would eat eggs for breakfast, and eat up to 8 eggs sometimes without really being THAT satisfied. Steak or something heartier, a totally different story. I now have an allergy to eggs (due to eating them every morning for so long), so now I just don't eat them. I can eat egg yolks, but it's always too much of a hassle so I just avoid them. I actually feel a lot better now. I am more satisfied with my food.

Do you find a difference in the way they are prepared? For example, fried eggs don't hold me at all but HB keep hunger at bay for hours.

Hi

I also do not find eggs very filling and could easily eat a dozen in one sitting. However this may be my body just readjusting after several years of a raw diet and veganism.

Peace x
