I believe i'm currently consuming around 6 or so egg yolks a week, is that a large amount?

2 every other day or so...

Not compared to me. I average about 4/day...mmmm, eggs...You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sauté it....There's egg kabobs, egg creole, egg gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried, pineapple eggs, lemon eggs, coconut eggs, pepper eggs, egg soup, egg stew, egg salad, egg and potatoes, egg burger and an egg sandwich.

hahaha I agree! :-) I love eggs too! easy to make, versatile and so damn...well..delicious!

With a more serious reply, did you ask about your consumption because of a cholesterol concern? If so, take a look at this site: http://www.ravnskov.nu/myth3.htm

Yes I did, and thanks for the link!

Here is another great essay on the cholesterol / heart disease myth: http://www.thincs.org/Malcolm.choltheory.htm.

Spend some time reading all the information at THINCS - http://www.thincs.org/ and at The Omnivore - http://www.theomnivore.com to really learn about the "dangers" of cholesterol.

Gotta go...time to make some egg salad...

barbecue? c'mon, let's not get carried away

David Stegman 06-12-2006 01:53 PM

Man I probably eat 12 or more a week! I'm not worried about it at all.

Once again free range non-grain fed organic chicken eggs are the best to have in both taste and nutrition wise.

Kevin McKay 06-12-2006 06:47 PM

What would you guys say is the max sane amount of eggs yolks per week?
