    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)
