    Hi there. pretty much as the title tells it all… how many of eggs are you eating a day? We all know (I guess) the benefits of eating eggs so I really like to find out what’s your number? How many whole eggs and how many egg whites? Also, since we talk about how many eggs we eat a day… what’s the reason behind the number of eggs that you are eating a day or ratio of whole eggs to egg whites? Well, I guess I should be the first one who answers all these questions so I’m going to share my answer here and I’m counting I’m going to get some of your answers as well.
    I am eating 6 whole eggs per day, usually I’m eating them with quite a large glass of whole milk or mootopia chocolate milk. Gotta say that I’m literally just standing by my stove watching those bad boys cook and I thought about what everyone else does… but it is obvious (I guess) that most importantly for me would be ‘why?’ let’s make it an interesting thread that can help people as I am quite sure that this thread can be really helpful.

    As you, I am also having 6 whole eggs per day. I am not very sure if anything more than that is considered to be ‘safe’ because if you’re going to take a look at this question online you’re going to see some answers ‘yes’ and other’s ‘no’. anyway, I am having 4 of them for breakfast and after that I am boiling 2 more and have them either with a salad or I am making some kind of low carb deviled eggs as a snack for later when I’m hungry. As for the egg whites, well… I hardly ever eat eggs whites so I can’t actually say anything in regards to this.

    Not actually agree with the fact that anything more than 6 eggs a day is not safe. As an example is me since I am still here writing this all safe and sound and I am typically eating approximately 9 egg whites a day to one whole egg. Or you were talking about more than 6 whole eggs? Anyway… op has asked for the reason… well, the only reason of mine that I toss the yolks is due to the fact that I prefer to meet my fat macro with beef and/ or pork fat along with evoo and with cheese… anyway, in the end we’re all different.

    To be honest, I would say that I am quite a bitch when it is coming down to eating. I am only able to eat 3 eggs, 2 slices of cheese as well as an English muffin. But I know this is not enough even though I have always eaten only three eggs. I know that I have to eat more of them and that’s why I am not working my way up to 6 of them and hopefully I will manage.

    Well, right now I am eating anywhere between 4 and 6 eggs and that’s since I am currently on a diet which I am trying to religiously keep mind of it. however, as I said, that’s now that I am on a diet. But on those times when I am trying to grow I am typically eating 8 eggs per day, and there are sometimes when it is with cheese added… but there are other times when I do not add it. it depends… I guess on my mood 😀
    Also I should say that I am usually drinking like 16 oz of egg whites before I am lifting as well so I guess this should be mentioned here as well. I think this all depends on each goals… if you want to grow eat many, if you want vascularity and be lean eat less and etc. also depending on each person and how they react to them.
    Eggs are generally amazingly good for people like us… especially fresh eggs. In fact, I can say that I have got here enough space to buy a few chickens so I ever considered to do so as I would always have eggs and they are fresh eggs and as I said… fresh eggs is something ‘different’! have any of you ever had fresh eggs? I tell you… they are just unbelievably good and nutrient. But the problem I still haven’t done it (and not sure if I would) is that I am lazy… I admit… because I’m like that I just know that I am not going to do that much of work… but if I would ever do it then that’s amazing! anyway I still think that I need to find somebody out there that is raising chickens though… and I suggest you people to try fresh eggs too.

    Oh yeah, you are definitely right when you said that fresh eggs are amazingly good. I know as I did have tried them myself. Thanks to a guy out there… we’ve got a guy on my shift (at work) that is having chickens (he’s not that lazy, haha :D) and he is always bringing in a dozen or 2 since he does know that I am lifting and I’m always trying eat clean. So he kind of ‘helps’ by bringing those for me. and I’m really thankful to him for this. you’re right that they are unbelievable and as you, I also recommend others to try them out. from as much as I know, you can find them in markets (I guess) but they are more expensive. Not sure though.
    But man… oh my god.. you are drinking 16 oz of egg whites each time before you are lifting?! Arrrgh… ohh… now… man… that’s a true dedication. No doubts that this is super helpful and I guess you know this better than anyone else but that’s just something that not everyone can do, be sure about that… In fact, I can confess that I don’t know if I could do that myself… but good for you that you can and you keep on doing it… that should be really really helpful IMO.

    I do know what you are saying up there as I am getting all of my eggs from a close friend of mine that is raising chickens free range on flaxseed for feeding them. And since I have started to get them from this friend I just stick with his eggs only as I do know how big of a difference there is between the eggs from his chickens compared to the eggs from the store… I would say that there is like a night and day difference in the taste/ flavor wise compared to those that I was purchasing from the store. And I would expect that the nutrient values are pretty much the same like a night and day difference. And as I have said in my post earlier, I also do the white eggs… and to be honest I am feeling bad tossing the yolks, however they are doing an amazingly good job in destroying my appetite so that’s why I just keep on doing it (although there are oftentimes when I think of stopping it, usually these times are right after I’ve done it LOL ).

    Well, I do believe you guys… but… Walmart is currently selling 60 eggs for only $2.97… and… that’s it…. I mean I do not have to shovel up chicken shit or to worry about their large talons etc. etc. (and I’m quite sure there are many other things as well). I would like to try them, but I doubt that I would be to get any chickens for myself and do it all.

    Yeah… there is no doubt in that and you might be right in regards to this… I mean, in regards to this part: * Well, I do believe you guys… but… Walmart is currently selling 60 eggs for only $2.97… and… that’s it…. I mean I do not have to shovel up chicken shit or to worry about their large talons etc. etc. (and I’m quite sure there are many other things as well). I would like to try them, but I doubt that I would be to get any chickens for myself and do it all.*
    However I’ve got to ask you… have you ever had fresh eggs? As I already asked this earlier… I mean, if you haven’t then you really should but if you did you wouldn’t, I guess, say that… that’s because they are really really amazing and worth to at least try. Good enough that I have actually thought and considered to get a few chickens myself and I was about to do it… however then I have realized and remember that I am not that kind of person to take care of them.. I’m too lazy of doing that and therefore those poor chickens would most likely die from neglect and there would be no point in what I’ve done. Or there is also a chance that my pup would massacre them just for fun.
    What I am sure about is that in case you would ever get this chance of trying the fresh eggs then you really really need to give it a try and see that I’m telling the truth. I just know that you’re really going to like them. Now I’ve just kept purchasing them from 3 different people over the period of some years and I can tell you that they were all great, they were amazing.. however I truly think that it may be something to do with the food that they are giving to them which is actually making them to taste so so good and so, maybe they are not all as good as what I have had. Whichever the case there IS a BIG difference between these fresh eggs and store eggs. The first time when I have had them I realized that the commercial eggs were actually crap. And it does makes sense to me as the commercial eggs don’t actually care about the quality, they are only interested in quantity (as they are making money on the quantity they are selling), while those simple people give their chickens, I guess, normal food, which makes their eggs much better. And I am mentioning the taste because that’s the only difference that we can actually notice, but I am sure that the benefits, nutrients etc. are much more from the fresh eggs as well.

    Absolutely and totally agree with what has been said up there and that’s especially on the last part as of this: however I truly think that it may be something to do with the food that they are giving to them which is actually making them to taste so so good and so, maybe they are not all as good as what I have had. Whichever the case there IS a BIG difference between these fresh eggs and store eggs. The first time when I have had them I realized that the commercial eggs were actually crap.

    There is no doubt this is true. I am not an expert or anything in this matter, however there’s just my girl’s aunt who is having like 25 or so chickens right now and about 2 weeks ago or so we have visited her. we have tried the eggs from those chickens and it was the same as said here… the difference was amazingly big… I didn’t expected that I would see any difference at all to be honest, but those were amazing eggs and indeed the store eggs are crap. And I also think that it must have something to do with what they are feeding them. They are giving them some kind of organic feed now before they bought that, the chickens were eating quinoa LOL! anyway, these fresh eggs were like ‘organic’ compared to the store eggs which were like ‘plastic’ so to say , LOL.

    oh well… it really really depends on where I am at with my diet to be honest… I’m talking about how many eggs I eat per day… this depends. Most of the time I am eating approximately 4 whole eggs for the breakfast. But on a bulk I am actually only eating or drinking egg whites because this way I can meet my fats through the chicken and beef. If I am having to many whole eggs I am having to purchase lean beef and that more money so to be cost effective I am sticking to beef and chicken for my fat.
    And yeah, by the way… I would say that the egg whites and sugar free hurshy syrup it is the absolutely BEST protein shake ever.. or at least that’s in my opinion. Whichever the case, I am still recommending it to you guys too. Surely you’re going to like it.

    Well, I have to make a confession here… I have never ever in my life thrown a yolk away or ate just an egg ‘white’ in absolutely any kind of form… yeah I know… that does seems to be so counterintuitive to me.
    Anyway… in order to answer the thread topic question… I’ve gotta say that I am having a minimum of like 3 or 4 eggs about every single day. With breakfast. In fact… there are some rare days when I might have no eggs at all, I may have such kind of days here and there but they are rare. But there are also other kind of days, also rare, but on those days I can eat a whole dozen of them throughout the entire day. It pretty much depends on what else I am eating during that day but typically, regardless of what I eat, I do have 3 -4 of them a day.
    I’m that person that if there’s ever such kind of an opportunity to add an egg or more to some other food then I am always doing it. I always thought that eggs are having a lot of good stuff so I always am eating a lot of them. At least I’m trying to.
    And by the way, in regards to the ‘fresh’ eggs: that’s absolute truth that store eggs are crap compared to the ones grown at home. Generally, I am also preferring the homegrown eggs and not only, to me everything homegrown variety is over the store food. Luckily for me, I am having a lot of friends and family members who are raising chickens so I am never purchasing eggs from the store. As others have said it, if you’ve never tried them and you always only ate store eggs then you should search for someone who raises chickens and get some eggs.

    You know, I just wanted to say something else in regards to this: *And I also think that it must have something to do with what they are feeding them. They are giving them some kind of organic feed now before they bought that, the chickens were eating quinoa LOL!*
    They are best scrambled, or at least in my opinion. They are having some of a very buttery taste… and so I am naturally adding some more butter in there.
    Anyway, I can tell you that I am brewing home beer as a hobby of mine from time to time. not doing it as often but when I have some little time I do. There were a few years ago when I have brewed a batch of beer but each time when you are finished with a batch of beer there are obviously some leftovers, so I had some leftover spent grain and I thought what I’ve gotta do with it. I knew that there were a few things that I can do with it and I have decided to give it to a girl that I knew that she had chickens so they might eat those. When I’ve asked her the next time if that stuff was helpful she told me that her chickens were eating that shit up like some candies, LOL 😀 anyway, I also believe that it depends very much on what you are giving them to eat. And maybe the chicken’s stress level too. lololol.

    I also know what you are talking about the farm fresh eggs… you are definitely right to this point, those eggs are hands down the best that I have ever tried in my life, no doubts! I have vacationed in Austin, tx one time and this little hipster place where I was have had a full on herb garden and chickens for fresh eggs every single day. I can tell you with certitude that they were so so damn good, I’ve surely never ate any better eggs and I surely haven’t found any of those like that in a store. I remember that they were expensive, but they were damn tasty and good. but I can guess that you are getting what you are paying for, right? Sunny side up with my toast drenched in fresh yolk. If I could somehow have the opportunity of getting ONLY those types of eggs I surely would go for them.

    Well, I am eating no less than 6 eggs per day, typically this is part of my every days breakfast. I one am altering the yolks to calorie and macro count for my goals at the time. also I’ve gotta say that I am eating a few hard boiled later as well. I personally really love the eggs as they are an amazing source of cheap protein. I am purchasing them locally for 125 a dozen, and yeah, as you noticed, I also noticed that they are tasting a lot much more better than the Walmart eggs, that’s why I think that it is definitely worth the extra cost. Those Walmart eggs does seem to be like… unnatural? Whichever the case, they don’t seem to be anywhere near as good as these ones so I know I’ve taken the right decision by going for these more expensive but generally better eggs.
