How many eggs should you eat a week?

eggsAnyone who knows BeautiFitStrong, knows we LOVE eggs. We love making the omelets with whatever is leftover in our fridge. And we truly mean WHATEVER is in the fridge. But how many eggs are too many eggs? How many eggs should you or can you eat per week?

It turns out it’s all about saturated fat and looking at your TOTAL diet. It’s totally healthy to eat two eggs a day, but if you like those eggs with cheese, then you’ve just upped your saturated fat and calories by a lot. Now if you make your eggs like BeautiFitStrong does with all those leftover veggies in your fridge and leave off that extra saturated fat, then going through a carton of eggs in a week is just fine.

The bottom line is that the right amount of eggs is totally dependent on the rest of your diet. A single large egg has about 80 calories, five grams of fat and six grams of protein. If you already getting plenty of protein and fat from other meals, eating a 4-egg cheese omelet for breakfast is probably not the best choice. But if you know you’ll be on the go and don’t know where your next source of protein will come from, go ahead and crack those eggs.
