Wowz!! You sir are lucky to live by such a place and to get eggs that cheap!!! As for your question, i really don't know how much is "too much" hopefully someone can chime in...

i was looking it up and i guess there was a study in the uk saying 2 eggs a week is enough but i call bs on that.
i also read that you can eat as much as you want. well not 100's a day but it wont have any negative affect on you seeing that the cholesterol in the eggs is good cholesterol. but then again idk with the amount of eggs i eat. ive had blood work done and my cholesterol is perfect
and yes it really is good to live by this place. later in life i plan on having my own chickens for this lol maybe about 20 lol and breed and eat them for there eggs, meat, and make so very soft pillows lol

How many can you eat before you vomit? That's when it's too much.

I eat about 5-6 eggs worth of whites and 2 full eggs every morning. That gets to be too much for me some days.
That is a pretty sick price that you get on them, though.

I'm pretty sure if I didn't slow down, I'd burn out on them. Although they taste good, I have to put hot sauce or salsa in them at times to mix it up.
Grapefruit juice is gross...

yeah eggs are an awesome source of vitamins and protein. I get burned out on them if I eat them cooked too much so most of the time I eat them raw blended in my protein shakes with protein powder natty pb and some oats...mmmm. If I do want them cooked I usually have them with something vinegary like tabasco sauce. Another way I like them is 5 eggs sunny side up in a small frying pan with a little cheddar cheese on top, refried beans mixed with left over taco meat and salsa on top.
Another option if you don't want to eat raw eggs but still want the convenience of having them liquid you can pasteurize them. I just put a bunch of eggs in a pot and turn the heat to medium low heat and stir them constantly until the thermometer reads 134 degrees F. Then I put them in empty water jugs and they stay good in the fridge for a month or so. Whenever you want to add some quality protein and fats to your shakes just pour a little in. It's kind of a lot of work but if you're burnt out on eggs this is a great way to fit them in.

I usually boil mine. I don't really like eggs taste too much.
If I want to use my blender and mix the eggs in there should I cook them first or can I just crack it open not cooked and pour it in?

I guess I live on the dangerous side but if you want them still liquid and salmonella free I explained in post #12 how to do that.
12-06-2011, 12:42 AM
I may try the crack and just blender them method and see if I can even taste them in my shakes.... Can you?Originally Posted by BOSSisback82

If your main source of fiber is from the trace egg shells that come off onto your egg, you might be eating too many eggs.

If I ate that many a day I would probably start growing feathers.
I usually eat 5 in the AM, but I get sick of them real quick.

Eat them till your farts start smelling like eggs.
12-08-2011, 08:45 PM
Wow you've got a deal there, go for as much as your stomach can take haha

I am taking 2 eggs per day. I think that's enough for a normal person. But, for the body builders and the sports persons 4eggs are good per day. 2 in the morning with a glass of milk and 2 in the evenings.

I'm not even sure high cholesterol even causes heart disease. I've been meaning to look into this.
12-10-2011, 06:44 PM
Its not really a causative factor it's more a "risk factor". You can have high risk factors and never have a heart attack or issues. And cholesterol itself has less impact on blood cholesterol values compared to saturated fats but egg yolks contain good amounts of both. But if you don't have any abnormal blood values and you are in good health eat all the eggs you want.

The specific kind of cholesterol you have that is elevated is far more important than overall cholesterol being higher. Small dense LDL particles (note not all LDL but specifically the smaller more denser ones) are the ones that have an involvement in the process of inflammation, but dietary fat or dietary cholesterol doesnt produce these lipoproteins. It is actually a diet that is high in simple carbs that would lead to them. Furthermore, it really isnt the cholesterol itself that is to blame but the inflamation (again which is caused by a diet high in simple carbs NOT dietary fat or cholesterol intake.
Now for a little more on LDL... When it is oxidized it does pose a threat. What oxidizes them? Free radicals. Where do these free radicals come from? Mainly from trans fat, (which I assume we all know is bad and obviously arent included when I say "dietary fat" ). Now to add even more to this, fruits and veggies contain plenty of antioxidents which will help combat these free radicals. So.. If ones diet is low in trans fat, low in simple carbs and high in veggies and fruit you shouldnt fear dietary fat (with the exception of trans fat) or dietary cholesterol. These high carb/ low fat diets that are pushed onto us are far more damaging then any amount of eggs you eat

"In Framingham, Massachusetts, the more saturated fat one ate, the more cholesterol one ate, the more calories one ate, the lower people's serum cholesterol. We found that the people who ate the most cholesterol, ate the most saturated fat, at the most calories weighed the least and were the most physically active."

"The idea that saturated fats cause heart disease is completely wrong, but the statement has been "published" so many times over the last three or more decades that it is very difficult to convince people otherwise unless they are willing to take the time to read and learn what produced the "anti-saturated fat agenda." - Dr Mary Enig, Consulting editor to The Journal Of The American College Of Nutrition, President Of The Maryland Nutritionists Association, And Word-Renowned Lipids Researcher, "The Oiling of America."
