Hi ladies and gentlemen I’m Dr. Zyrowski

In this video we are talking about how many
eggs should I eat per day.
This is a question we get quite often because
the egg has become very popular as a result
of many people following the ketogenic diet.
The egg is one of those perfect foods on the
ketogenic diet now I will go ahead and explain
in this video the nutrient profile that we
find in eggs.
And then of course how many eggs should you
eat per day.
Now when we look at conventional wisdom of
eggs many people are concerned about consuming
too many eggs because first of all they are
concerned about raising their cholesterol
but also have heard conventional wisdom of
that fat will make you fat.
So we know now that obviously that fat is
not going to make you fat and then we also
know based on science is cholesterol is not
going to directly raise cholesterol in the
body.
Simply what happens when we consume more
cholesterol from eating eggs is the liver
just produces less and everything balances
itself out.
Now the other thing that we have to know too
is that cholesterol is actually pretty important
for the body.
Its important for producing steroid hormones
like testosterone and estrogen and cortisol.
So anyway eggs have tons of benefits.
Let’s go ahead and jump into a few of them.
So first of all they are loaded with Choline.
Choline is very important for brain health
and neurological health so that’s very powerful.
They also have vitamins A, B and D in them,
which is also very powerful.
They’re loaded with antioxidants like zeaxanthin
and this really important for eye health when
we look at preventing macular degeneration.
These different antioxidants found in eggs
are actually going to help prevent these different
eye issues.
The next here is they are high in protein
and they have a really great amino acid profile
in them something that is considered perfect
for the human body loaded with fat and each
egg has about seventy-seven calories as well.
I want to mention that because a lot of people
ask it.
Now lets talk about how many I should eat
in a day.
Now when we look at conventional wisdom it
tells us 2 to six a week and this was just
simply because people were concerned about
that fat making them fat, that cholesterol
raising their cholesterol.
So they would have two to six eggs and then
they would switch to the egg whites.
We know that that’s false we are not going
to pay too much attention to that.
Now the next here is three a day well this
is an interesting one because there’s actually
a study done on people who are eating three
eggs a day and they were completely healthy.
Their plasma lipids were completely normal
and they did just fine consuming three eggs
a day.
But then there was also a case study done
on a gentleman who was eighty-eight years
old.
He was consuming an estimated twenty-five
eggs per day.
Once again they checked his plasma lipids
because they were concerned about it raising
his cholesterol and causing issues once again
completely fine.
So then how many should you eat in a day?
It’s a good question because a lot of people
who are on the ketogenic diet and they like
the egg because it’s easy to prepare its
easy to hard boil and bring a lunch consume
a lot of them.
So what I recommend is that you are consuming
five or less okay.
So if you don’t like eggs then don’t consume
them at all.
But, I don’t think you should over consume
them so that’s why I’m putting five at
that number because here’s the deal if you
eat more than five it’s not going to kill
you.
But, here’s what you are going to have happen
is you are not going to getting all the micronutrients
that you need on a daily basis.
You’re not going to be getting your greens
and your fruits and all the other nutrients
that are necessary for the body to function
at the highest level.
And so when we look at eggs it’s always
important to make sure we consider everything
in moderation.
Five or less is good number to stick to and
once again if you don’t like them at all
don’t eat them.
And you want to have some more some days it’s
not going to hurt you but you don’t want
to over consume eggs because you want to get
those other nutrients.
Now the other thing I want to mention is if
you are someone who get bloated stomach and
you get an upset stomach and itchy skin after
eating eggs you shouldn’t be eating them
at all because they’re going to rob you
of your energy and of course cause a lot of
irritation in the gut.
