It took you 6 months for your symptoms to alleviate? Are you sure it was the eggs? Were there other variables involved? Any other symptoms (bowel wise)?

I try to keep my protein under control but I also find egg whites seem to bother my GI tract while eating just yolk or mostly yolk doesn't give me any real trouble. I think there are much better protein sources.

Jaminet also throws the whites away, but i think his primary reason is to limit his protein intake

I usually eat about 1/3 to 1/2 of the white and all the yolk. I always preferred the yolk anyway and now adays realize it's the most healthy part of the egg. I hate to discard all that egg white but I can't think of a good way around it other than stop eating eggs (or eat more whites) both of which are terrible.

That's certainly possible. I used to have all kinds of mild food allergies but, since they were mild, I mostly ignored them and tried to eat healthy. They basically went away with the years.

In your father in law's case, there could be confounding factors. For instance, maybe his wife just got him eating better, maybe improving leaky gut or some other predisposition.

I think my father in law would disagree with your assertion on allergies! :P He used to be very allergic to tomatoes until his wife started putting them in tons of dishes. His body got over that allergy pretty fast and he's enjoyed them for more than 30 years since with no ill affects. I'd have to ask him, but I think they're one of his favorite foods now.

Some foods are more prone to causing allergies than others due to protein structures. It's highly uncommon to become allergic to beef, for instance, but it's easy to become allergic to peanuts or soy.

Never is there one to end all, but it's pretty clear that habitual/excessive consumption of a certain food can cause intolerance/allergies. Wheat allergy/celiac is ridiculously common in America and Northern europe, rice allergy in many Asian cultures. Epidemological, yes, but makes good sense. Also, people with severe food allergies tend to develop greater allergies to their favorite foods and are recommended to cycle their favorites out to avoid this.

Eating stuff too often or never eating it - both get implicated in allergies, there's no one answer to end all answers.

i wonder if eating (too many) eggs everyday could become an 'intolerance' issue for some people if they have a 'problem' with histamine...

...this could be due to just the egg whites, according to wiki, egg whites "are potent histamine liberators". read more here, Egg white intolerance (wiki)

so hypothetically, over time histamine levels are slowly raised by eating egg whites everyday until finally, you reach a tipping point & see a histamine reaction

After 41 years of eating eggs (and 2 daily for the last 3+ years), I'm starting to get a scratchy throat when I eat them, especially if the white is undercooked. It's definitely an allergic reaction. That being said, I've got autoimmune issues (Hashimoto's) and I've been heavily off the paleo bandwagon for 3 or 4 months, along with being off my meds. I think I'm in a major autoimmune episode, and am hoping that after getting back on my Synthroid, doing the AIP, and then re-introducing eggs, that they'll be OK.

I developed an intolerance to eggs from eating them every day. i would eat 6-10 at a time, and sometimes twice a day. I would get tired/brain fog after eating them.

I stopped eating them for 6 months and the intolerance went away.

I've been eating eggs for 58 years, hasn't hit me yet that I am intolerant. For the past year I'm eating them more frequently and still no problems. My wife had a problem with them until she cut out grains.

The question to ask is what about eating meat every day, or rice, or some vegetable, bananas, butter, coffee?

Strange how eggs are treated like some "mystic" food.

Actually, eating lots of the same thing repeatedly often does lead to intolerance, even allergies. It also depends on predispositions and your state of inflammation and gut permeability. If you have leaky gut issues, try not to eat any one thing too regularly or you'll possibly become allergic/intolerant. If you're healthy, digest well, and don't currently have an issue with eggs then just keep in mind the high omega 6 content and enjoy, maybe with some sardines.

I can't say that this is something I've ever heard about or read about.

If anything, you will become more tolerant as your body becomes used to the constant intake of X thing.
