don't deprive yourself of the delicious and nutritious egg yolk. i eat 2 eggs with breakfast almost every day (if i don't, it's usually because i need to go grocery shopping). it's probably my favorite part of the day.

about 4-6 whole eggs per week, i eat 1-2 for breakfast on my non-yogurt days. on occassion i'll include a hard boiled egg in a lunch salad. not too often I eat them at dinner....

I eat 2 whole (medium) eggs every night for dinner. That is my entire dinner. (Lunch is the largest meal where I live, and dinner is the smallest.) I love them!!!!

3 eggs a day every day sounds like a lot... not because of the animal protein but because of the cholesterol content of the yolks.

I personally try to limit my egg intake to 1-2 eggs in a day a couple of days of the week.

I generally eat a couple eggs for breakfast or lunch whenever I can. They are low in calories yet full of protein!

Your friend is wrong in saying that it is too much animal protein.

Too much based on what? If it wasn't animal-based, would it somehow be better? What are your friend's credentials and why would you listen to her?

The only thing I would change is leaving in at least one of the yolks because they contain lots of nutritional value and even more protein. Protein is a great choice and helps keep you full longer.

I have eggs a few times a week. BTW--consider eating the whole egg, not just the white. There are nutrients in the yolk that aren't in the whites.

about 8 eggs a week, good source of protein, sprinkle on black pepper and celery seed, nice addition to salad, with kale , romaine, and spinach, and fat free dressing

That's hardly any protein at all.

3 egg whites have 50 calories and 11 grams of protein. Not sure where your friend is getting her information, but that's not a lot of protein.

I don't think it matters if it is animal protein or a different kind of protein so long as you are within your protein and fat goals. Maybe your friend has a cholesterol prob and that is their reasoning? When I do eat eggs I have 2 whole eggs. And that is usually not the only animal protein I have throughout the day.

On the mornings that I eat eggs which is 5-6/week I'll eat 2-3 whole eggs cooked in coconut oil and an apple.

IMO it's really hard to overeat protein.

I eat 2 whole eggs a week (sometimes I go to 3 if I fit another day in).

1/2 cup of egg whites every day! Great protein start to the day.

I eat three eggs whites every morning 365 days a year with a salad and fruit. I don't care for cereal or oats. My friend says that's too much animal protein - what do you think?
