    I only go through 6-12 eggs a week. Sometimes I have them for breakfast every day and sometimes I don't eat them for several days. But if I feel like pigging out on 6 scrambled eggs all at once (especially with a bit of cheddar cheese!) I don't worry about it.

      Eggs are health food. They are the poster food for bad science - they got the blame when everyone first decided in the 80s to cut cholesterol. Multiple studies on egg consumption itself revealed them to be completely harmless as far as heart disease - so now they are recommended even by mainstream science.
      If you are new to the PB - please ignore ALL of this stuff, until you've read the book, or at least http://www.marksdailyapple.com/primal-blueprint-101/ and this (personal fave): http://www.archevore.com/get-started/

          I eat two eggs a day normally...sometimes they're hard to get down (due to pregnancy), but I think they're a health food for me and my growing baby!

Plus with the onset of nightly freezes the insect population drops and so does the quality and brigh orange yolk goodness of the pastured eggs. It's winter. Seasonbaly I guesse that means we should go with the cycle and reduce egg consumption until the quality improves again in the spring when insects are abundent for chicken food again.
            We have some molters in our flock right now...they're still producing well, though overall production has dropped due to the winter season/shorter days. They are a bit more dependent on the chicken feed (boo), but we try to make sure they get plenty of kitchen/meat scraps.

              As Doctor Atkins once said. Eggs are the closest thing to a perfect food we have.

                  I ate a whole dozen one time... It was hilarious because my uncle had just gotten these eggs from his neighbor (who got them from his chickens). That sounds kinda messed up, but you would have to understand our relationship...

                  As for the topic, I can only think of two small issues with eggs. One minor thing might be the allergic side of them. Another is applying the Paleolithic perspective: eggs were not available every day. They would be somewhat of a rarity, but they'd be feasted upon when found.

                    That's an interesting thought. I have times where I have 6 eggs every morning for days and then other times where, meh, they just don't appeal that much.

                      Ostrich eggs are delectable and very Grokian.

                        So I've been following Mark's Daily Apple for awhile and we've made considerable changes to our diet - including eating a ton of EGGS but just came across this article and while I'm not concerned about the cholesterol, zero fiber, heart attack warnings - I do not know what to make of the cancer and diabetes research and articles she cites. Has mark addressed cancer and diabetes research that has been published by big name organizations and foundations?
