My husband's B. Secretor status unknown. No real source of animal protein. How many eggs are recommended for type B's? Currently I eat 6, and that gives everyone a heart attack! I know the myth about eggs& cholesterol...but when it comes to B's, how many eggs are safe for them?

Hi Tac ??
Well since your husbond do not eat animal protein I would say it s safe to eat a lot of eggs !

LRT
b sec 3-4 pr week
B nonnies 5-6 pr week.
I know I am a sec- but I eat somewhere between 4- and 6 pr week-and my cholesterol is finally fine !
There are just no connecttion between eggs and cholesterol in Bs !

Thank you! I was actually worried about B's capabilities to digest fats. Unlike O's, B's are less endowed to process fats & proteins, isnt it?

Bīs differ
Some Bīs are more vegetarian  and others more O like.( I am a mini O )
Fat from whole fat yoghurt and eggs does not process a problem- nor fatty fish.
But fatty meat is not great for Bīs.
Tyhe problems Bīs have with fat is mainly the polysaturated fats- notice ALL the avoids for Bīs in seeds, nuts and oils.

Slightly less capability then type O, but type Bs still produce a fair amount of IAP, and stomach acid, and more then type A or AB.

My son (Type B nonnie, 23 yrs old) has three for breakfast without a problem.

When he is working out at the gym, he increases his egg intake up to four or five..

Being an O, I settle for two eggs a day

Cheers,
Yaman

During spring and summermonths when my chicks ( dwarf) produces lots of eggs - I eat about 2 small 35 grams eggs pr day as well- but now when they are lazy-( as the good mum I am   ) my daughter O gets the eggs instead- I can alwys get my kefir/yoghurt etc.I am soo picky when it comes to eggs- that I only use my own eggs  for breakfast - store bought even high quality organic eggs are just NOT the same.
When I was pregnant I had 2-3 eggs pr day= got a very healthy big brainy kid

My cholesterol count is excellent and I eat 6-7 eggs a week.  I have noticed that eggs are being accepted again by those who are supposed to be in the "know."  No more egg bashing!    I have never believed the hype about eggs being bad for us.  I was just being my usual stubborn self, I guess.

I eat about 6-8 eggs per week too... and that does not include eggs added in casseroles and such...


But also important to remember that the size of eggs has decreased over the years... what used to be a medium sized egg is now considered a large, etc. So in recipes that call for 2 large eggs... I always add 3 if the eggs seem rather small... which is most of the time...

If your husband does not eat any animal protein... no wonder he is feeling fatigued!!!... as you mentioned in another thread...


I felt the worst in my life on a vegetarian diet. Probably because many of the sources of vegetable protein are avoids for B's... and that might be different if no avoids are consumed. But still I think it is difficult for some B's to maintain a good energy level on a vegetarian diet.

No... But I can make a guess...  

I assume that it is due to how eggs are sized, and that one can get a higher price for what are larger eggs. But everyone of a certain "age" will tell you that large-sized eggs used to be a lot larger 'back in the day'...

It's true, Kristen.  I noticed that yesterday!  I bought a dozen large eggs, and when I looked at them, I thought, "Hmmmmmmm . . . . . . . . those are some pretty tiny large eggs!)

My daughter eats more than a dozen eggs per week, sometimes 1 1/2 dozen.  She's a B non.

Here the free range eggs are (and have been) always smaller than farm eggs. The free hens know better

Mr rooster and Mrs hen were strolling in the marketplace. They came to an egg stand:

"Large eggs, 10 cents each!"

Mr rooster turns to Mrs hen and says:

- Look, your eggs,

Mrs hen proudly walks by, then see the next stand:

"Larger eggs, 12 cents a peace"

Feeling her misery, Mr rooster says:

- Honey don't worry 2 cents wouldn't worth to tear your arrears
