I have been trying out low carb (still have so much to learn and am experimenting more than anything). I love eggs, but would it be too much to say have 2 eggs for breakfast and 2 with dinner? for breakfast I have been having them with veg. Similar for dinner but more of a stir fry. I don't want to over eat them and end up putting more weight on as the purpose of this is to lose weight!

Four eggs a day is ideal as they are rich in choline and may actually promote fat burning. Make sure you are getting plenty of fat as well.

I ate 28 eggs in four days once. It was awesome.

I went through 30 eggs a week easily when I was low carbing.

I love good eggs, as many as I can justify......4-6 eggs a day maybe!!

I tried an egg fast last year. The food was awesome and I lost 2.5 lb in three days eating nothing but eggs, fat and cheese. Not very healthy and I wouldn't recommend it unless you need to lose weight fast but it does show how many eggs you can eat when you put your mind to it. I didn't like being i ketosis, it was worse than carb flu.

okay this is about as exciting as my life gets right now... but it makes me so happy to know that lots of eggs is fine! I could easily have 4-6 a day! I'm a big meat person but recently I just want eggs all the time!

This is great news, I wasn't sure whether my three eggs a day was okay so it's good to know more is acceptable!

2 for lunch - egg and bacon mayonnaise and a salad, 2/3 for tea some days - omelette :-)

Could someone tell me what's involved in the egg fast please? I need to lose a few pounds to kick start my diet. I've been doing really well with the exercise part but not so much with the eating.
