    For me ... none. Maybe 1 or 2 per month.
  • Dang. That didn’t work. It was meant to be a gif of Cool Hand Luke. 🤗

    What specifically are your concerns about eating "too many"?

    Depends on how close you are to your co-workers!

    Depends on the day. I think there are 22 raw eggs in my refrigerator today (stocked up for Christmas baking and ended up doing mostly fudge and caramel popcorn, and only needed eggs for pecan-hazelnut shortbread).

    So, without going to the store, I can eat 22 boiled eggs today for snacks.

    That wouldn't leave me a lot of calories for meals, but since I'd be concentrating on plant foods for fiber and other nutrients that don't come in shells -- oops, make that eggs, as I don't want to rule out nuts -- it would probably work out OK. Although I might be too full food malls after 22 boiled eggs for snacks. And, as much as I like boiled eggs, I might be tired of them after a dozen or so.

    I normally just have 1 medium egg, but as others have said you can eat as many as your heart desires within your calorie goal!

    I eat three eggs almost every day for breakfast, sometimes another two as a snack. I get my stats checked annually and no issues with my cholesterol. I think eggs have gotten a bad rap.

    I went through a phase once where I had 4-6 per day. I love hard boiled eggs.

    Nearly four years ago, I also did the math out to see how many you needed to eat to meet my nutritional goals: If you're curious, the answer is 20. (Notseriousnotseriousnotserious)

    For whatever reason, they put my gallbladder into screaming pain ... the kind of pain that keeps you awake all night.

    I like eggs. I wish I could eat more. I go a couple months without them and feel good and think I'll give them another try ... but nope.

    For me personally: 0- 1 because I don't like eggs very much. Most days I do not snack on boiled eggs.
    For you: as many as you like that fit your goals I guess.
