This is how many eggs you can eat in a week

WE know eggs make a healthy, affordable and tasty meal - but now research has revealed just how many it is safe to eat in a week.

The American Journal of Clinical Nutrition found there were no adverse effects from having as many as 12 over seven days.

The researchers found that weight loss was similar over a year for people on a low-egg (two a week) and a high-egg (12 a week) diet.

They discovered that even participants with type-2 diabetes did not suffer adverse effects from eating a diet high in eggs such as inflammation, cardio metabolic risk levels or raised glucose levels.

A healthy diet based on population guidelines and including more eggs than currently recommended by some countries may be safely consumed," concluded the researchers.
It has prompted a call for a review of the National Heart Foundation guidelines, which recommend just six eggs a week.
While eggs - particularly the yolk - are high in fat, they are full of vitamins, minerals, protein and healthy omega-3 fats. The yolk is packed with nutrients, so there's no need to opt for egg-whites only.
Eggs are filling and do not raise cholesterol in the blood. People who replace a grain-based breakfast with eggs have been found to eat fewer calories over the day.
