    Thanks everyone for the replies. I think there might just be a silver lining to some time off - as mentioned, I can heal up and come back strong. Hopefully it flies by.

    My opinion is that the plates under the heels need to go, and you should widen the stance with feet pointing outwards. It is hard to say for sure from the picture, but your knees and ankles look too...

    I don't think anyone was saying you shouldn't have eggs (I wasn't anyway). I still stand by my statement that planning for 5 eggs a day everyday is not optimal for nutrition or health overall.
