We have all heard mothers or grandmothers warn us not to eat a certain number of eggs a day or a week. These popular beliefs are nothing more than that, myths.
“There is no official limit on the number of eggs that can be eaten in one day, although a reasonable number would be two. Eating a couple of boiled, poached or scrambled eggs gives you 12 grams of protein, as well as useful amounts of vitamin A, B and D, iodine and selenium, "says Dr. Frankie Phillips, registered dietitian with the British Dietetic Association, in statements. to The Independent.
"Plus," says Phillips, "combining the eggs with a source of vitamin C like juice helps absorb the iron from the eggs." However, “like any food, eggs provide calories, about 130 kcal in two eggs, so eating too many can lead to an imbalance in the diet. What experts do emphasize is that raw eggs should be avoided.
