    Looking at the poll I might be adjusting my consumption to the mainstream paleo of around 20/week. I hope this helps the cholesterol number.

      I love eggs! I eat 2 a day most days, so I guess I typically eat 12-14 a week. It's my normal breakfast or lunch. Breakfast might be 2 eggs with some meat and/or avocado and/or leftover vegetables from dinner. Lunch might be a BAS with 2 eggs. Sometimes I mix it up and eat deviled eggs, egg salad, etc.

      I don't usually eat huge quantities in a sitting because I always have them along with something else.

        I eat 20 eggs a day... I am thinking about reducing the number of eggs to 10 and eat more beef instead to improve my Omega 3 / 6 ration.

          You are kidding, MeganFox, right? 20 eggs a day!
          Why?

            I eat a dozen a day. 6 after work/post-workout cooked various ways with some fruit on the side, then in a couple hours have my main meal (usually no eggs there) then I drink 6 raw just before bed because it seems to settle my stomach and provides everything I'd need to heal/rebuild as I sleep. If I feel like eggs in my main meal I take a couple off from the other times. I like to keep it at 12 because otherwise I'd have an odd numbered container.

                I wish I could eat a dozen eggs a week, but every time I try and eat more than one or two within a couple of days I get sick. Eggs are great though.

                      I eat about 10-15 a week, have done for a long time now even before going paleo. Can't say I've ever had my cholesterol checked though, but I'm not worried. Eggs are great (especially when you get a double yolker!)

                          I usually use 3-6 eggs when I do use them, but that's not necesarilly every day. My cholesterol is fine.

                              I have to reconsider my consumption as my LDL cholesterol is percieved as an issue by some, see here:
                              LDL cholesterol doubled from pre-paleo - PaleoHacks.com
                              About 30 a week.

                              If I had your numbers I still would eat about 30 a week.

                              ----
                              Note: second test had very low trigs so Iranian estimation is used for LDL (4.45) so it 'only' went up 50%
                              and your HDL went up 27%

                              The trig/HDL of 0.29 is calculated on mmol/L so should be less than 0.9 NOT 2 (and it still is).

                              2 is used for mg/dL and this case its 0.65 (below 2, so good)

                              ---

                                I usually get through just over a dozen, as most days my breakfast consists of two eggs and bacon.

                                I must admit, because I'm still a bit of a newbie, that I'm worried about dealing with a doctor should I have blood tests in the future. But the more comments I read from people here on MDA, the more reassured I feel that eggs are powerhouses of goodness and I should keep it up!
