Is there such a thing as too many eggs?

montrealeater | Jan 13, 201211:57 AM

I've been thinking about this for awhile and just read a comment on another thread re: egg yolks being OK if you limit yourself to one a day (if dieting). Now, I am not dieting, but, I eat a LOT of egg yolks. Maybe 6 a day on average. I don't eat the whites (they get scrambled and given to the dogs), I just really love very soft-poached egg yolk. AFAIK, eggs aren't the devil anymore, and neither are egg yolks. A friend speculated I may be setting myself up for an allergy.

Is there any reason not to eat lots of egg yolks? Is there anything to the allergy comment - that in eating so many I am somehow priming myself to become allergic? Various people have also commented on the food safety issue, assuming that soft boiled yolk could be this true? Don't certain gym bunnies eat a lot of completely raw eggs? Are they suffering from frequent food poisoning or what?
