How many eggs is too many?

Hi, recently due to some feelings about eating meat arising I'm looking into eating mostly eggs for protein. I've heard eggs have cholesterol but also heard from Paleo sites that it is okay. Can anyone clarify for me, should I be concerned about my cholesterol or something similar if I adopt an only-eggs-for-protein diet? I'm a thin 24 year old male. I've never had high blood pressure-- it's always been in a healthy range every time I've visited a doctor. I have a sensitive stomach and I'm lactose intolerant, so can't eat dairy. I'm thinking a dozen eggs or more a day.


Thanks in advance!

Eggs are awesome.  Eat up.  Ignore the BS about cholesterol, it was all a lie.  Here's a couple of example articles.

Maximum 3 eggs for a day is enough for the body health.

Yes eggs do contain cholesterol. But eating up to 3 eggs per day is absolutely safe in majority of individuals. Since you do not have cholesterol and high blood pressure issue and are lactose intolerant you can definitely eat up to 3 eggs a day as eggs are not a dairy product and do not contain lactose.

@paleofam321 Just ethical things like "who am I to eat this, what gives me the right" "this isn't kind, my value is kindness" etc

I agree. Good, pasture raised eggs are nothing but healthy. 

Just curious, what did you learn/start to feel about meat that turned you off to it?
