How many eggs in a day ?

by | Aug 14, 2014

How many eggs one should take in a day or at one time?
It is ridicules to hear that people [self styled nutritionist + bodybuilders] take 20-40 eggs or even more a day. It is really funny to listen from these protein maniacs that it is going to give them great muscles.The reality is that they could not digest all these and 80% of the undigested food goes to toilet and one becomes a good manure factory.

But the truth is that even an individual of 100kg  with body fat of 15% can never digest more than 30gms of Protein at one time and total 130 to 160 gms a day. If some one is 70kg the total requirement is just 100gms a day and at one time not more than 20gms.
People think that the protein is in Eggs or whey powders only, They are confused and stressed and misinformed. It is for general information that protein is in milk, pulses, Wheat, Rice, nuts, leafy vegetables and all non veg foods. Then Why eggs only or protein powders are considered as the protein sources only.

Eggs: An average egg of 50 g supplies 80 calories, and contains 5 g of fat (all in the yolk and some in white), 6 g of protein (all in the egg white and some in yolk), less than 0.5 g of carbohydrates and 215 mg of cholesterol.

This means that 6 eggs supply a total of 1300 mg of cholesterol, 36gms of protein, which is much more than required at one time and hardly our gut [intestine ] can digest. This is a matter of interest for all that at one time one type of protein is never digested. Human is a herbivorous and carnivorous both [Omnivorous] . This means the digestive enzymes in human gut are designed in such a proportion that both veg and non veg protein is required to complete the complete amino acid profile.

So human food should have veg food + milk or eggs or meat etc [non veg] in total so that the amino acid profile, minerals, vitamins, trace elements should be completed to give the best to grow & recover, There is no study available that about 20-30-40 eggs are going to help you improve muscles. The studies are available that 2-3 eggs 3-4 times a week are much better to get the best effects of micro ingredients of eggs like omega fatty acids, fat soluble vitamins, HDL etc. The abundance of all these micro ingredients can cause ill effects also.
The ideal is 2-4 eggs at one time 2-3 times a day along with other food like cereals. nuts, milk, salad etc.

Don’t waste money on huge number of eggs. Insist upon balanced diet covering cereals 50%, pulses 20% milk and non veg 20% throughout the year and eat 6-8 very small covering all impotent every time trough out the day.
