    I've starting eating 4-5 raw egg yolks a day, and lots of offal. It's been 2 weeks and I feel pretty good.

      Thx noodletoy - read some of Mark's articles this weekend and this has helped me so much - [URL="www.marksdailyapple.com/the-context-of-calories/#axzz2P1MhiWvR"] and changing my workouts (were definitely doing Chronic Cardio that was stressing out my hormonal balance) - tried walking and yoga for 3 days and lost 2 lbs.

        That's the true traditional spirit. When you have kidney issues, eat kidney. You have liver issues, eat liver. Having a period, eat chicken periods.
        well then

          Fair warning... I ate 6-8 eggs a day for about a year and have now developed a serious intolerance and aversion to them! Of course, I had some pretty serious digestion and gut damage done prior.

            Same exact thing happened to me. Was eating about 6-8 eggs a day every day for a year or so and now I have a level 4 intolerance to eggs. Just goes to show too much of a good thing isn't. Better to mix it up or risk suffering the same fate. I sure do miss my eggs

              Eggs are high in lectins and people can and do develop intolerances to them. Some people also find they develop GI or depression issues from too many eggs. Likely you will get sick of them soon if you eat at that rate, so you may want to mix things up a bit.

                I ate 12 eggs a day for about 2 years starting in mid 2010. Never had any issues. Bloodwork was and still is phenomenal, and no digestive or allergy issues. I still eat 12 a day when I'm trying to gain weight although I cook them in a variety of ways so they don't get boring.

                  I ate 3 a day for breakfast for many years. Occasionally I would have more later in the day. Now I must limit myself to one or fewer a day because of the intolerance I developed.

                    It just seems like Grok wouldn't have had access to that many eggs, unless he settled down and had a farm, which gets into a later era than the one the Paleo diet tries to emulate, doesn't it? I'm not saying that makes eggs unhealthy, just noting something potentially incongruent, feel free to point out how I'm wrong and Grok would've come across loads of abandoned chicken eggs in his nomadic travels...

                    If eating that many eggs agrees with you, stick with it. I was eating maybe 1.5 cartons of eggs a week at my egg-eating high point and I didn't feel good at all, I had serious under-eye circles, felt bloated, felt like I constantly smelled like eggs...

                      I have been in love with eggs since becoming more primal, even got my own hens. However, I am concerned about developing an intolerance to them--this is not the first time I have read about too many eggs becoming a problem. I have been making an effort to not eat them several days a week. When I do eat them I like to have 3 or 4 at a time and really make a meal of them.

                        This is the fallacy of Paleo. We need to use what grok likely did or didn't do as a loose framework, not dogma.

                          Meanwhile read yet another article that does affirm that eggs are indeed healthy however the Mayo clinic recommends only 1 to 2 per week.

                          yeah that's logical

                            For grok eggs would be seasonal like fruit, eating them when wild birds lay eggs in the spring and early summer and hardly any the rest of the year (mallards and doves lay eggs well into times other birds have stopped)
