    Egg Lovers Beware!

    Primal Fuel
    I know this has already been said in here before most likely, but since going primal, eggs have been a big staple in my diet. I have been eating consistently 3-4 eggs every morning for breakfast and after about 6 weeks I have developed an intolerance that leaves me with intense pain and discomfort like a small knife slowly traveling through my digestive system accompanied with nausea. No hives or anything other than those three things mentioned. It took me a few days to pinpoint it, but its definitely the eggs and I only get it when eating them. Sad..sad day as I depended on them as a very cheap nutritious source of protein and now I have to give them up...So for those that love eating eggs every day, do so with caution so you don't end up in my seat.

    Oh dear
    thanks for the warning and hope it resolves itself soon so you can enjoy a few eggs again.

    This is, unfortunately, not all that uncommon around here. The vast majority of people seem to enjoy eggs as frequently as they wish, but a subset seem to develop intolerance. Eggs are high in lectins so perhaps they promote gut permeability for some people?
    Using low lectin/nightshade free primal to control autoimmune arthritis. (And lost 50 lbs along the way )

    That's really unfortunate. You may have to switch over to a poliquin-esque meat and nuts breakfast.

    I recently expereienced this I have always loved eggs, and they are an ideal breakfast food, Primal or otherwise. Just this past year I started experiencing stomach pains and digestive trouble after eating them. Duck eggs are much worse than chicken eggs.

    I can have them every now and then, if I eat them with lots of other things, but this makes me SO sad! Even organic free-roam eggs are much cheaper than meat for breakfast! And so easy to make! Ah well, we must listen to our bodies...

    maybe it's not the egg but what they feed the chicken. I know most grocery store eggs feed there chickens soy and corn and a lot of others supplement there food with these. I know I feel icky with these type but chickens that get no soy, corn, or coconut are okay but really expensive.

    i've wondered this too. pastured eggs are still a cheap source of protein and so worth it imho.
    As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy and to make plans.

    One thing I have considered (for when I am more firmly primal) is making eggs a seasonal item. Although the season is long due to different kinds of birds, eggs definitely would not have been a late fall or winter food.

    I'm sure that's true for some people...I had blood tests done, and for me at least it's the egg itself. I stay away from corn and soy, but if I do have them I don't react to them at all.

    chickens likely originate from a climate that would have allowed year-round laying of eggs, although they were initially domesticated for fighting not food.
