Re: I have a question about eggs too...

Eggs may be eaten as your main source of protein, and in that case, the number would depend on total number of daily calories. If your basal metabolic rate (number of calories you burn daily) is 2000 or less, it would be a good percentage of protein to have 3-4 eggs most days if you're in the rebuilding or maintenance stage. During serious cleansing/detoxing stages, protein needs are smaller unless you come up against leaky gut or candida/parasites, things that rob you of nutrients and require lots of tissue repair. If you have 4 eggs you don't need chicken or fish or meats. Save those for the days you want a break from eggs.

Eggs are only a whole food with every essential amino acid if they are whole. Do not separate whites from yolks, especially if cooking. Because raw egg whites have an anti-nutrient that binds a B vit, you may add additional egg yolks when eating raw after you put in one whole egg. Light cooking (poaching) will denature this anti-nutrient and make it harmless, so it's okay to cook your eggs. You can scramble them too, but do so on a med-low heat and don't brown them.

Hope that clears things up! :)
