How Many Eggs Can you Eat a Week?

I get this question all the time so I wrote a whole post about eggs, their health benefits, and if there’s such as a thing as too many eggs. Research shows that 3 eggs a day for 6 weeks did not raise cholesterol in healthy individuals and in people with high cholesterol. You can read the full post HERE.

The short answer is, you can eat 2 eggs a day. I typically have them 3 times a weeks, 2 eggs each time, plus here and there in baking.
