How Many Eggs Should I Eat for Breakfast?

Wondering how many eggs I should eat for breakfast? Some stats:

5'9", 165lbs, and I'm very active. Exercise a ton. I've been eating eggs over easy with a medium sized sweet potato underneath for breakfast. Two eggs doesn't seem to be cutting it.

Goal is to add lean mass, not maintain or loose.

Thanks!

Hunger will increase with increased need for calories following weight lifting. The advice to eat everything in sight is passed down to natural trainees by those utilizing exogenous anabolics.

I'll take the eggs and maybe pass on the bacon (maybe). But it will be hard to resist. How big are you if you don't mind me asking?

Satiation inherently promotes eating less, which can hinder anabolism. You wanna gain, ya gots to get enough food in you tumtum!

Satiation obviously doesn't preclude muscle anabolism.

Travis, if he wants add lean mass he shouldn't prefer more satiating foods.

Eggs provide poor satiety. Eat some red meat for breakfast.

Hi Joanna 85-90lb (6-6.5 stone) sounds a very low weight, is that really your weight? x

The kids from Whole9 say a serving of eggs is however many you can fit in your hand. I'm about your size and can easily hold four. Of course, that's if you are using eggs as your main protein source like in the meal you described.

if two eggs isn't enough, eat 3 or 4.

If you have any sort of gut issue or autoimmune disease I would not go beyond two eggs. Folks can and do acquire egg sensitivity, ... not sure why. If you need a bit extra for breakfast I suggest adding sausages and/or bacon.

Depends on your activity level, goals (weight loss? performance?), how many meals a day your eating and how large the meals are, what else you are eating with breakfast (i.e., bacon), etc.

I usually like 4-5 eggs for breakfast. Reference: I'm female, 5'3" and 120lbs.

I'm sure you could easily do 6 eggs.

I have 5-6 eggs, though I'm only eating the yolks for the most part, throw in 5 to 6 pieces of bacon, double shot of espresso with some heavy cream and THAT's a GOOD morning folks...tends to hold me over for about 7 hours.

Breakfast, the most important FAT of the day.

Truth.

Chicken, beaf and shrimp all have a lot more protein than eggs which are only 25% protein and mostly fat. Try adding a whole bunch of chicken to your eggs and make an awesome omelet.

Can you have raw egg yolks instead?
