It depends on who you are, your physical condition, age, laboratory tests and lifestyle. An athlete has different protein needs than a sedentary individual, for example. A person with familial hypercholesterolemia must have restrictions on yolk consumption. Each one therefore has an individual and unique amount allowed per day. But, in general, adults or children, in good health conditions, can consume 2 to 3 eggs per day, without risk.

A person can consume one egg a day, seven eggs a week without this being considered excessive consumption. Moderate consumption is important to prevent the development of problems related to excessive consumption of eggs.

Healthy people can eat up to seven eggs a week without affecting their heart health. You can choose to eat only the egg white and not the yolk, which provides protein without the cholesterol.
