Started going through mercola's site, while a lot of it is too much for me to handle right now, I did read his eggs article and how you can develop an allergy to eggs if you eat too much. I eat 2-3 eggs/day, 7 days/week. How likely am I to develop a food allergy over my life? He suggests eating eggs raw (I normally hard boil)...how many of you eat your eggs raw?

Hmm, I eat eggs pretty much every day and have for quite some time and haven't experienced any issues from it that I'm aware of.

I put raw eggs in my protein shakes, too -- orange juice, eggs and vanilla protein powder - it's like an Orange Julius! :-)

You should rotate all your foods on a daily basis....aka dont eat the same things 2 days in a row. You can develop allergies to anything if you eat too much of it...esp eggs I have heard.

As for raw...go organic first...and then it's your call...I still cook mine...Mercola is a smart guy, but he also gave himself diabetes trying to follow a metabolic diet long ago...and probably has suffered from other mistakes along the way...so take what he says about foods with a sense of caution...as in make your own educated decisions about it.

I have eaten eggs almost daily for about 30 years I would guess. I usually just have a couple in my morning shake. A wonderful person I work with gives me fresh eggs. I also buy them and will eat hard boiled in addition, but tend to do the hardboiled for a few weeks and then get tired of the taste.

Seems almost counter intuitive (to me at least) that daily exposure would give you an allergy (seems like it would de-sensitize?)but hey I'm not a Dr. I did however stay at a Holiday Inn Express.

Sarena - I use one made by Synergistics, it's called Whey Natural. It was recommended to me by Andy Petranek, who runs CrossFit LA and I have no complaints about it at all.

i was eating about 3 dozen raw eggs a week with no problem. and then got the most godawful stomach problem that promptly urged me to make a complete switch to pasturized egg whites and i haven't looked back.

I do the same thing as Becca as I miss those Orange Julius days, though I don't cheat as they are just too much junk to bother with.

Fresh OJ+milk and egg protein powder is just about the same. So good!

Actually, my roomate eats eggs every day for the cheap and easy protein. I'm just too lazy sometimes to make them up but it's pretty smart when living on the cheap.

I eat eggs a lot--raw in my smoothies (I will only eat grass-fed eggs raw), hardboiled in salads, scrambled or poached, you name it.
