    Too many eggs!!!!

    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.

    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

    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 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.

    Because I'm not???

    I eat A LOT

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

    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
