  • Why does my body suddenly hate eggs?



    I love eggs. To keep primal, I make a "quiche" of eggs, chopped broccoli, and some type of meat on Sundays, portion it out and freeze individual servings for breakfast all week. I've been doing this for about a year or so and I enjoy every breakfast.

    Recently, I have gotten nauseous after breakfast and it passes within 5 minutes or so. Not so lucky this morning. My body "rejected" breakfast. What happened? Have I O-D-ed on eggs? This is upsetting because I love them and can't bring myself to eat non-breakfast foods for breakfast, which if I can't have eggs, doesn't leave me with much.

    How can my body reject such a perfect food?

    Hey PJAP!!! I hope Tara Tootie sees this thread, she's allergic to egg yolks, but I don't know how long it's been that way. Maybe she knows? TT where are you!


    It's possible to develope allergies in adulthood, though that one would definitely suck. I love eggs too, I hope it's just a phase for you

      @primalj...i have never been able to eat more than 3 eggs in a day. i usually stick to 2 eggs because at the risk of TMI...eating 3 sends my tummy into a bubbling, gurgling gas hemisphere that is quite unpleasant. i buy liquid egg whites in the store to sub in as i'm pretty sure it's the yolk that does me in. have you tried cutting back on the # of whole eggs you have for brekkie?


      my go to sample breakfast is 2 whole eggs and .25c egg whites, lots of EVOO & a strip or 2 of bacon

        The ratio is 1 egg and 1/2 cup of egg beaters. Maybe I just need a break. My curiousity is killing me, though. Why would my body reject something so healthy? Is it possible that it's because I am not buying organic? I think I will take a break until Monday and start with organic, pasturized eggs to see if there is a difference. I just don't know what to eat in the meantime.

          I have to have a different egg dish often. If I eat eggs the same way too many days in a row, I get nauseous, or worse!


          I dunno why, but if I keep changing up how I make them, this doesn't happen.

            Take a break. I'm the same way. I buy organic Omega-3 eggs from Country Hen--top shelf stuff. After a week or so of straight eggs, I feel like I've been kicked in the gut a few times. I usually switch to avocados for a few days.

              Why use the egg beaters? That'd be the first thing to go for me.

                Yes, I think your body is rejecting egg beaters, and not neccessarily the eggs. Why in the workd do you use those? They are highly processed, and depending on brand, have a load of nesty stuff in it that your body simply doesn't recognize.


                I'd say take a break for couple of days and then try reintroducing regular eggs, no egg beaters. Do one at a time and see how you feel.

                  Yeah ditch the egg beaters, I don't know why but they do the same to me. Two whole eggs every morning, and I never have a problem.


                  Good luck

                    Have you experimented with other foods? Are you sure it's the eggs and not just the time of day? I'd switch around the dinner and breakfast meals to see what happens.

                      I suspect the egg beaters too, has too many additives and the whites are highly processed.

                        I have that same problem with all food with a sort of slimey texture like eggs, melons, oranges, and really ripe pears.


                        I once watched an episode of the Amazing Race in which the contestants had to eat a skillet full of Ostrich eggs. There was no way I could do that I would have to quit the show (not even a million dollars would make that go down).


                        I just skip eating eggs for a few days and then I can go back. I like bacon or sausage with fried Plantain bananas for breakfast.

                            I never would have thought I could OD on eggs, but it happened... but only because I'm pregnant. Eggs were "safe" for a while (while other proteins made me nauseated just to think about) so I ate them 2+ times a day every day for a little while. Then all of a sudden I couldn't eat them anymore. They made me gag and feel sick afterward.


                            That's the only input I have (besides agreeing that egg beaters is a nasty processed product)... and I'm sad along with you about not being able to love eggs anymore. Hopefully it's temporary for both of us.

                            Eating lots but still hungry? Eat more fat. Mid-day sluggishness? Eat more fat. Feeling depressed or irritable? Eat more fat. People think you've developed an eating disorder? Eat more fat... in front of them.

                              Do you do probiotics? Intolerances to foods can be related to gut health, and probiotic foods and supplements can be really beneficial to gut health. Just another thought!


                              I agree w/ pp's to ditch the egg beaters!
