    7 eggs a day

    Is it a good idea to eat 7 scrambled eggs a day to gain weight? I'm trying to eat more cause I usually barely eat and 7 eggs was the only thing that filled me up and that's what I've been eating is eggs cause I know how to make them

    If eggs fill you up, why eat them to gain weight?

    For gaining, peanut butter is good as it's high in calories. Or red meat with lots of fat.

    If you really struggle with eating and getting into a surplus, eat "dirty" in my opinion. Chocolate, ice cream, junk food etc. You don't want to be fighting an uphill battle.

    I think red meat is the ideal food for this situation, personally, but also have never had the problem of struggling to eat enough volitionally.

    Cool, glad my banter isn't exclusively annoying lol. I'm in the company of doctors, PhDs and career professionals here, of which I am none, however.

    Eggs are great!

    When I was a skinny kid trying to bulk, I tried to eat six meals a day.

    I tried to eat 2x breakfast (egg based meals)

    2x lunch (sandwiches, burgers, pizza, whatever they had on the school menu plus some pb and jelly sandwiches and milk)

    2 x dinner, sometimes that meant Moms dinner plus seconds and later ice cream or yogurt or nuts before bed.

    I tried to drink milk any time I ate as well.

    Bulking was hard because my metabolism was so fast…lifting , running, biking, skate boards, rollerblades, street hockey, basketball, football, tennis….all that stuff….

    Over time , I learned to replace pb a jelly with chicken breasts or tuna…

    Even now, I eat 5-6 times a day but it’s all pretty clean healthy high quality protein and carbs and much lower fat now…

    This. For purposes of gaining weight, pb is a better option. It's more calorically dense and likely a better option from a health standpoint too, plus it tastes far better IMO

    I would go with 6 eggs a day along with a few pieces of bacon. 12 is divisable by 6 evenly. If you remove 7 eggs from a package, you are left with 5. That means you have to buy eggs on back to back days. If you go with 6, you are just buying eggs every other day.

    There was a guy I ised to work with. He was basically worthless, but he would dazzle the ignorant with fancy words he learned from some “word of the day” app. Eventually management saw through his scam and fired him as he didn’t actually know how to do his job. But he continued his ruse for several years.

    Not saying Eli does this, but i am just no longer impressed by needlessly complex words when colloquial english works just as well. And as a polyglot, i realize the point of language is communication.

    That’s a lot of eggs… you should get your lipids checked before consuming that many to make sure your LDL isn’t elevated to a problematic level

    I was also thinking this. Eating that many eggs would be one of the worst things you cold possibly do diet-wise if you have familial hypercholesterolemia. All the more reason to go for PB

    Agreed with getting your cholesterol checked if you go this route, ideally before and 1 month after starting to eat this many eggs.

    If you just need more calories, rice is cheap and not very filling.

    I find the language stuff interesting. As a physician I am "expected" to use medical terminology with colleagues but then use very simple language with patients, which has never made much sense to me. It would make more sense to me to use simple language with everyone to become more proficient at doing so.

    No kidding! I can really only have one yolk at a time (egg-whites crew) cuz the fattiness doesn't agree with me too well, and I just find them insanely filling. That's not even to mention the GAS. Good Lawd I hope OP lived alone when he tried that experiment...

    FWIW, I studied writing very extensively while I was in college. This included both artistic and science/medicine related topics. I think I went from a good writer to great one when I realized simplicity is king. I mean, I do have a rather prodigious lexicon. I impressed a high school teacher or two with my flowery essays, and I even got a perfect score on my SATs. With time, however, I realized just what desslok said...language is about communication. My gf has come to a similar conclusion working as a nurse. It's one thing to remember all the medical jargon they quiz you on in school, but it's another (far more challenging) thing to be able to understand it enough to condense it all into a language that common-folk can understand. This is another reason I commend you on your site...I still think it should be stickied

    I remember my last english class for my English minor in college, the teacher was a mean, evil lady. The class started with people standing up in back hoping to get on the waitlist, after midterms, half the people dropped out. At the end there was probably 12 of us left, and this mean old teacher that literally pointed out every.single.mistake of everything we wrote says, “congratulations, you can now write in the top 1/10th of a percent of anyone in the English speaking world”. That was the first nice thing she said the whole semester so I remember it well. But, i work in technology now and have to explain IT to people whom I have to assume can barely speak at the 7th grade level, similar to how newspapers are written.

    There is to my mind a clear, meaningful difference between a mere superfluous use of pedantic verbosity to signal some kind of elitism, on the one hand, and an actual fine edge of meaning achievable only with some discernment in choice of words, sometimes demanding the use of a higher vocabulary in the latter case.

    There is also a social pressure not to identify with intellectual pursuits and interests not deemed in vogue, at the same time that there is also a basic meaning to most sentences perfectly conveyable within the purview of regular, daily speech. So, I think there's kind of a balance, which ought not necessitate a deliberate "dumbing down" even when intentionally choosing fancy words to clutter the same meaning with inefficient vehicles of the same sentiment only conveys the desire to appear better, and is in that regard disingenuous to a skilled use of language on its own terms.

    I just thought of a possible scenario where all your colleagues are seated around a table talking in a very serious tone about a patient with severe flatulence likely due to the frequency with which certain food items are habitually consumed

    Your pithy, sarcastic retort exemplifies the precise verbal dilemma to which I subsequently alluded. Paradoxically, such vapid sentiments targeting those humans of vertical impairment serve only to reinforce the archetype of digitally-induced cognitive dissonance incessantly dominating the moral landscape of our ever-evolving and, dissociative, modern zeitgeist.
