Default Okay to eat so many eggs?

I am a lacto-ovo-vegetarian and have been looking for ways to low-carb. Is it truly okay to eat 2 eggs everyday? I thougt I read that adults should have only 3-4 eggs a week. I love eggs and cheese and it would really help me to LC if I felt that it would healthy. I don't have any medical complications whatsoever.

Thanks for any replies!!

It is perfectly normal and healthy to eat that many eggs, and more. In fact, when cooking, i have some single recipes that call for 5 eggs!

How's your cholesterol? Last I checked my total had gone from 314 to 199 to 176 but my ratio was not good and my tris were too elevated. Terry

Having egg white i suppose is good , as it contains a lot of proteins . But the egg yolk's are known for having very high cholesterol content .I believe you should push that aside especially when you are having something like 5 eggs a day ! Excessive cholesterol is a serious health risk and its very difficult to get off from your body .

I disagree -- whole eggs are fine in any quantity, every day.

High tryglicerides are caused by carbohydrate metabolism.

Your body will make less cholesterol if you are eating more. It's fine.
