True, the deviled ones are easier to eat. Maybe it's the fat they add to them.

Wondering how much you weigh? I was telling a friend that its impossible to over-eat a protein (unlike tortilla chips at the mexican restaurant in which I need to stay away from!) Not saying your big or over-eating..just wondering...because I love that you can eat that many...really.

I generally have three in the morning and three pre-workout/flamenco class with a fried banana. I used to carry three hard-boiled eggs in my pocket and munch them as I walked to work, but soon realised how hard-boiled eggs equal constipation, not to mention the odd looks I would get from people.

From the eggs not the constipation!

I regularly eat 24 in one day, 12 for breakfast and 12 for dinner. Been doing this for about a month now. I'm curious to see what my cholesterol numbers will be when I get my physical done. I previously had very low cholesterol.

You said 1 day not one sitting. Could do dozens in a day.

The most I can remember was a morning with 6. Quiche for lunch (6-8). And then discovering for dinner that all I had were eggs. So 6 more. Going with a comfortable 20. But have probably done more.

4 for breakfast everyday. But then many days we'll do an omelet for dinner and maybe one snuck in via mayonnaise etc for lunch so i've definitely done somewhere in the range of...12+ in one day. Love them.

Probably around six? Three for breakfast, and when dinner rolled around and I was feeling lazy, three more. :)

I usually only eat about three a day, though. Cheap protein; helps stretch my budget considerably.

I would eat 20 for breakfast especially after a hard workout.

I could easily down another 30 for the rest of the day.

I dated a vegetarian for a little while. Her being vegetarian basically meant I was a vegetarian. So, I ate eggs as my main source of protein. A dozen a day; so 84 eggs a week. The constant egg for protein got pretty old pretty quick, though.
