    Too many eggs!!!!

    Primal Fuel
    I know eggs are healthy, and CW is BS, but seriously, don't you guys think you can eat too many eggs?


    I ask because, from messing with nootropics, I know eggs are "fairly" high in Choline.


    Too much Choline can start giving a person headaches, and sometimes even depression. I started eating the classic 6 eggs in the morning, and more throughout the day, type of way. I've been getting head-aches this morning.


    Do you guys think I'm just connecting fake dots here, or could it legitimately be the eggs?

    I don't know. How many eggs per day are you eating, and why are you solely relying on eggs? I've never heard of 6 eggs in the morning being "classic".

    I usually eat 3 with something else at breakfast.

    My friends and I have been known to eat a dozen eggs each a day when we are craving them. No problems for us.

    I should mention I'm 6,0, 140 lbs.


    That's why I'm eating so many eggs, they're a quality, cheap source of protein.


    Throughout the day, like Damiana, I can easily knock out a dozen eggs

    I don't know any upper limits for eggs, and I ate 21 eggs & 21 extra eggwhites on most of the weekdays for four weeks, and I am still alive. Well, some of the days I ate around half of this, but eggs are good for you...

    I agree too that eggs are good for you and way more nutritious than muscle meat. I feel no need to set an upper limit.

    I eat minimum 4 a day at least 5 days a week. I've never had any problems. I honestly can't remember ever having a headache that wasn't directly related to sinus pressure during a severe cold.

    The OP didn't state that they were relying solely on eggs.

    Most people get too little choline, which is very good for you. Chris Masterjohn has written extensively on it: Does Dietary Choline Contribute to Heart Disease? | Mother Nature Obeyed - Weston A Price Foundation
    Four years Primal with influences from Jaminet & Shanahan and a focus on being anti-inflammatory. Using Primal to treat CVD and prevent stents from blocking free of drugs.

    Eat creatures nose-to-tail (animal, fowl, fish, crustacea, molluscs), a large variety of vegetables (raw, cooked and fermented, including safe starches), dairy (cheese & yoghurt), occasional fruit, cocoa, turmeric & red wine

    Because I'm not???

    I eat A LOT

    12 eggs a day wouldn't amount to how much I try to get in
