I need to lose weight but want to keep the muscle I have so I need quite a bit of protein. I eat 5 eggs in the morning for about 2 weeks now but my mum keeps telling me it is unhealthy for that many. Is she right?
She keeps telling me I will get high cholesterol -_-
(I eat chicken, veg and other stuff too and hit the gym 4 times a week)

I think (given that you eat chicken) 5 eggs a day are too much.
Eggs are (almost) half protein and half fat.

Don't take my word for it, check egg's protein and fat content online and compare with your recommended daily intake.

hey!
let me tell you i lost alot of weight with eating 6 eggs . 2 eggs 3 times a day. its a good source of protein. i used to go to the gym everyday so eggs, chicken and red meat are really good. you can have 1 day off to not eat eggs and try a different meal but yeah eggs are really good.
Eggs do have alot of chelestrol but try to have boiled eggs and not scrambled

(sorry for the waffling hope this helps!!!!)

5 large boiled eggs are about 30 grams of protein and 25 grams of fat. Whether or not that's too much depends on your body, how hard you're working out and whatever else you're eating.
To be honest, 5 eggs seems excessive (especially that much fat straight away in the morning). It won't kill you, but you probably don't need to be eating that many. If you really feel like you're not getting enough protein elsewhere, you could always eat 3 whole eggs + 2 whites, for example (but I hope eggs aren't the ONLY thing you're having for breakfast).

It's a texture thing more than anything else. Raw eggs don't taste of much, but it takes some serious doing to swallow a whole yolk. My typical drink serving is 4-6 eggs. I worked up from two just to get a feel for how to swallow them without the yolk hitting my gag reflex. I'm still standing after a couple of years and hundreds of eggs down the hatch. Worth a try, fam.

Everyone is different of course but I've been told too many eggs can cause constipation. Not sure how true it is, but just watch out

'and down the hatch they went' haha interesting way to describe the process. Has it helped in lowering your cholesterol levels? or have you had normal levels? and would you think its beneficial for someone who is low in iron? how many years have you been doing this (if u don't mind me asking) and do you think its changed u in any way?

Bodybuilding community agrees that eggs are healthy. I eat about 4 eggs per day for breakfast.

Theres nothing wrong with dietary fat. There are far worse things to eat for breakfast than eggs. 5 eggs is only 25g of fat

Jordan Peterson a clinical psychologist recommends a breakfast high in fat and protein for energy levels/mood compared to a high carbohydrate breakfast.
