How many eggs is too many?

Answered on August 19, 2014
Created March 12, 2013 at 11:07 PM

I am living in central China, I've been here for 5 months and I have another 5 to go. The school I am training at provides all of our food, however it is very light on the protein. Mostly its cabbage and rice. The only ready source of protein I have is eggs, I've got a kettle in my room and I use it to cook them. What I want to know is how many eggs a day should I be having to meet my basic protein needs? If it helps I weigh 93 kgs and I'm training for around 4 hours a day.

Maybe look into some protein powder? Cause no one should have to eat two dozen eggs a day man.

Uh, yes, what sort of school makes available only eggs? Why can't you walk outside to a market and buy the pork, beef, duck, and fish that's widely available in any populated area of China?

No fish, I'm a couple of thousand miles from the nearest ocean and I have no means of cooking. Eggs are literally the only option.

There's about 6-7 grams of protein per egg. That's a lot of eggs...

I find it very weird that being on a training focused school you can only get one quality source of protein, I guess it's China after all...

2 gr per kilogram of bodyweight should suffice but training 4+ hours a day who knows... but more important than getting enough protein, I'd be worried about sticking to the same food day after day. Variety should be present in every diet plan in order to overcome imbalances, and just in case one day we find out that eggs are really not that good, then will have been better to have not been eating them in large amounts everyday for ages...

Also, there's plenty of vitamin A in eggs that may became toxic in really large amounts (although you should need too many eggs so it's unlikely if you don't eat other sources as liver or supplements).

I'd try to get food from the outside or think twice if being there is the way to go.

i eat 1 g of protein per lb of body weight. just depends how much you want. if you train that much, i'm sure 1 g would be good for you, too.

you'd have to look up how many grams of protein are in one egg. i don't know off the top of my head. when i ate eggs, i'd eat 3 or 4 a day.
