How Many Eggs Can you Eat a Week?

I get this question all the time so I wrote a whole post about eggs, their health benefits, and if there’s such as a thing as too many eggs. Research shows that 3 eggs a day for 6 weeks did not raise cholesterol in healthy individuals and in people with high cholesterol. You can read the full post HERE.

The short answer is, you can eat 2 eggs a day. I typically have them 3 times a weeks, 2 eggs each time, plus here and there in baking.

Nour’s guidance and expertise was the key to dramatically halting our son’s [Crohn’s] disease progression! His pediatric gastroenterologist is now in agreement of our choice to treat solely with diet and supplements. All his labs have improved and his inflammatory markers are so low they are practically nonexistent.

Before working with Nour, I experienced intestinal pain off and on for for 54 years with minimal success on medications. I have benefited 100% from Nour’s program as I am now pain free!

A lot of time and money was wasted on foods that I thought would help my digestive struggles [diarrhea, bloating, hunger], but in fact I was making it worse. The main benefit is getting a handle on what negatively affects my digestive symptom. Doing a total 180 to my eating habits has been pretty amazing.
