    How many eggs/week?

    How many eggs do you eat per week?

    I have to reconsider my consumption as my LDL cholesterol is percieved as an issue by some, see here:

    Hard not to eat so many when one raises chickens. With the new additions I might either be eating even more or selling excess.

    Going too low carb could increase cholesterol. Try adding in some potatoes or some other form of starch and see if it helps. Must be above 50 grams of carbs per day. Paul Jaminet has blogged about this: Perfect Health Diet High LDL on Paleo Revisited: Low Carb & the Thyroid

    The major changes in my diet are eggs, butter and coconut oil, that is why I think this is what contributes to the LDL number.

    I have been adding carbs, copper and iodine to my diet as per Paul Jaminet's PHD so I do not think the nutritional deficiencies are an issue.

    I'd take a look into the particle size, as that's the mattering issue, with respect to LDL.

    I would read up more on that before worrying about eggs. Eggs are great I eat 12 a week.
