Eggs are fine, just not everyday.

Re: are eggs ok everyday(morning)

There is disagreement on this issue. On the one hand, even some fairly traditional, conservative medical types say up to about 7 to 10 a week are okay. On the other end of the scale, Atkins said at least 2 a day was recommended, and many on Atkins eat 3 a day (though I am not sure they do that absolutely every day).

Of course, hopefully the eggs are organic, free range; and the bacon does not contain nitrates.

Re: are eggs ok everyday(morning)

Hello, One egg a day should be fine as long as you don't have an allergy to them. (I have a mild egg allergy, so I can only get away with 1 egg every 1-2 weeks.) If you're worried about the fat content, they aren't double digits. One egg is only 5 grams of total fat and 75 calories. There's more fat in a single serving of bacon. It counts as a meat on my diet. Eggs are also recommended on the new low-fat diets for heart patients. We are allowed 2 eggs per week.

I eat two eggs per day and have EXCELLENT cholesterol levels. In fact, provider said in awe, "Whatever you're doing, keep it up!"

I average about 3 eggs per day (at least 2 every day and sometimes 5 per day). I've been eating this way for 20+ years and have normal cholesterol levels and excellent ratios (triglyceride/HDL = 0.5).

You can always use a product like Egg Beaters if you're concerned about eating too many eggs. Egg Beaters are real eggs without the yolks.

Egg beaters have chemicals and preservatives for one thing. Sally Fallon and Mary Enig in The Nourishing Traditions book have seen studies that show that in studies with rats who were fed egg beater type of eggs could not sustain life. So BEWARE of fake foods.

Eggs are a remarkable food, a complete protein. I eat them all the time. I have very healthy cholesterol levels. I love to make egg omlettes filled with loads of cheese (ummmm). It doesn't get any better than that!!!

Re: are eggs ok everyday(morning)

I think one egg a day is fine. My friend who had the life changing operation is limited to what she can eat and she has lost the taste for meat so she eats eggs to get her protein. As long as you don't eat it fried or scrambled with a lot of butter or fat, one everyday you should be fine. I eat mine boiled and cut it until it is mush put a little salt and a little pepper, I love it.

Re: are eggs ok everyday(morning)

I think eating the same food every day is generally a mistake....and deadly dull!
One of my Atkins posting buddies was eating a dozen eggs a day for months...
I gag at the thought of all that sameness, but it certainly solved the problem of menu planning for him!
