    What do you think accounts for the seeming sensitivity to eggs, and your new ability to handle them? Is it possible there was a confound involved? Or did you just have to cycle some excess "something" in the eggs out of your system?

    I'm testing the possible difference in my sensitivity to whole eggs vs egg yolks only. The hypothesis is that I am sensitive to egg whites but not egg yolks. Previous experience shows that eating too many whole eggs causes pain in my feet and some swelling.

    I used to eat lots of eggs, but had to curtail that drastically some years back after becoming sensitive to them.

    Day 4: No reaction yet. Ate 6 hard-cooked egg yolks in a spinach salad.



    Wait, there's something missing...



    Mayonnaise!

    OMG that was a good salad.

    Your salad looks super yummy!

    OK, now I would like to know - how DO you train your calves? They are quite impressive!

    Thanks.

    Day 5: no reaction yet. I only managed to eat 3 egg yolks today. I wasn't hungry until bedtime.

    That's one of the many things I love about eggs, they really keep my appetite steady and I can go for longer periods without food when they're part of my diet. I suspect it's because they are so nutritionally dense and have pretty ideal fat/protein content.

    I'm buying eggs today for my daughter and am SOOOO tempted to start hitting the yolks.....slowly.

    Great to hear that you're doing so well with them so far!

    Actually, the reason why I wasn't hungry all day is because I did a carb refeed the night before. But eggs are satisfying, and more egg yolks are more satisfying.

    The leftover egg whites, both raw and hard-cooked, are building up in the refrigerator faster than my boyfriend can consume them.

    If he can't keep up and you hate to waste them, maybe try making some quick meringues since it's a great way to keep them for longer. There are lots of recipes online for both sweet and savory versions and they're a great portable protein snack!
