Hi guys, I officially started being more focused on nutrition on December 30. My calorie intake varies so I don’t get used to the food and stop burning. I started at 234, and now I’m sitting at 225 but I’m curious in how my nutrition is. At first I started by
Breakfast - 3-4 eggs, half cup of oatmeal, spoon of peanut butter
12 - 2 eggs
2 - 4 eggs and half cup of oat meal
4 - 2 eggs
7 - a shake before bed.

I did it for a few days, and now I got wuth chicken too.
Breakfast - 2 eggs, shake with half cup of oat meal, whey protein, peanut butter, coffee with a little cinnamon
12 - 2 eggs
2 - 2 eggs with 4 ounces of chicken and 1 cup of peas
4 - 2 eggs
6 - 2 eggs, 4 oz of chicken, and 1/2 cup of frozen veggies
8 - shake.

I go back and forth with oatmeal and frozen veggies. My day stays about 170-200g of protein. And about 50-80g of carbs and 70g of fat. Around 1700-2000 calories. I am 5’8 and 225 lbs with 23 percent fat. I drink about 150-200 oz of water. I add ketchup and salt (very little salt) to my eggs. My cheat day i try to consume around 700 until 4 pm and then I go to a Cuban restaurant and have black beans (Arroz Moro) and fried steak (2 t bones). So cheat day is still good. I work in Apple, backstage. So I do a lot of running. And lifting. 1600 testing calories and 500-700 active calories. Sometimes 1800 resting (what my watch states. I know not always accurate. Thank you in advance. I am 21

Clearly, this is false.

If you're looking for the most healthy diet, 12 eggs per day is probably not the best idea. Several observational studies have found an increased risk of heart failure when consuming more than 1 egg per day. For example: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/18195171

So.. You're taking in nearly 800 kcals/day and 60 grams of fat each day, just from eggs? Better get a cardiologist on the phone.

I eat 6 whole eggs a day and my heart is fine lol

if you enjoy 12 eggs a day eat 12 eggs a day

that study posted above is based on a questionnaire people filled out about nutritional habits. a questionnaire where people can be dishonest not only about nutrition but other things aswell that could affect heart values. But believe what you like

plus, people live to over 100 years old and smoke 2 packs a day. How bad can cigarettes be?

People consistently lying about their egg intake in different studies on different continents. I don't think that's very likely. Observational studies have their strengths and weaknesses. Questionnaires aren't the most reliable way to do research, then again if you want to measure the incidence of heart failure you're going to need to track thousands of people for decades and the only way to do that it using questionnaires.

genetics is the biggest factor

people prone to heart disease due to their genes are more likely to get heart failure over someone who eats more than 6 eggs a week

eat your eggs, and get bloodwork taken if you are worried about health. easy as that

I would definitely recommend taking your blood work if you're eating that many eggs daily.

However, taking blood work should not be confused with a having a full picture of your heart health.
