Can Blood Type O Nonnie consume eggs daily? I am gluten free as well so should I not be eating eggs considering most hens are fed wheat?

Corn is usually the first ingredient  Then soy and third wheat; range free will have bugs and seeds (grass mostly)  

Personally don't feel that the chicken feed is going to affect us, but I know others disagree with that.

The Good Doc says eggs are good for most Os go by the portain of the BTD you are following, unless you have an allergy to eggs. That's my view anyway.

Ok, because just the passed couple days I have been noticing I am feeling just a little "off" and the only new thing in my diet are the eggs! So I am guessing they are the problem. I eat Egglands eggs and they do not use corn, but they say grain mix with no specific grain and I think they list soy as well. I guess its time to give them up! Im ok with that I just wanted to see what others views are!

I am assuming that by asking the question as you have, that you are wanting to know portion information for BTD...

Per LR4YT, O-Non, portion = 1 egg (servings per week):
African - 2 to 5;  Caucasian - 3 to 6; Asian - 3 to 4.

I have no knowledge of wheat gluten or lectin passing into the egg...

I just did a lot of researching online and wheat gluten is not always going to pass into the egg but it doesnt mean that it wont ever. So I am just going to stop eating them, one serving a week isnt worth it to me anyways! Thank you ABJoe!

Eggs are a good source of protein and other essential nutrients.  Just look for cage free, organic eggs.  I think you misread the portions.  It's 2-6 depending on your background.  I eat more than that and do well.

Not sure but if they are organic and cage free and DON'T bother you, I think it's OK to eat them.  I do!
I find that a high protein breakfast helps me throughout the day.  I scramble 2 eggs in ghee and then sprinkle on nutrional yeast.....delicious!

I'm O- don't know my secretor status and I can eat eggs but mostly use them if I bake something.  Eggs as protein don't seem to do much for me but don't make me sick either...I rate them "meh" for me.
Here's a site that rates organic egg company products:  http://www.cornucopia.org/organic-egg-scorecard/

The only cage free organic eggs I can buy at the store are rated 1 egg.  I need to find a local source that doesn't give their yard chickens feed with arsenic and see if I like those better.

I just talked with my naturopathic doc and she said to buy local from her health food store and to go organic free range. So I will be stopping in there to pick some up to boil tomorrow and try them out. I did further research and I am finally finding that what the farmers are feeding the hens does not pass to the eggs, it is destroyed and broken down by the chicken before it has a chance to pass to the egg. So eggs are considered gluten free...but always best to buy local.
Thanks for all your feedback!

Just stick with the food list you are following as to how many and how often per week.  

Are you working with the Hunter food list from the Genotype book, or the type O food list?

No, I have found sticking with the portions 6-7 a week to be best so yes you can consume daily but that is only 1 egg per day.  Meat, fish and chicken need to be the main foods.

All depends on your level of nonnieness I react big time to soy fed ANYTHING... & egg (& milk) producers are feeding more & more soy, as it increases egg production... (increases the levels of hormones, therefore increases profits)

Interesting about eggs. I was eating at least a dozen free range eggs per week.  Tropical Traditions has coco feed eggs for about $10 per dozen shipped, which is more than I think I'm willing to pay for eggs.

This is a little off topic but do eggs increase mucus production? I love eggs and could eat them every day. They don't seem to bother me but I think I read that in one of the books

In ER4YT, pg. 58, If you are Type O of African ancestry, you should eliminate dairy foods and eggs altogether.

In LR4YT pg. 142, Eggs can be consumed in moderation.  They are a good source of DHA and can help Type O build active tissue mass...

I don't see anything about mucus, though...

My Swami gives me 11 eggs a week.  I usually consume less than half of that but they do make a quick snack if you hard cook them ahead.

I eat eggs regularly, and don't seem to have a problem with them. I did cut them out of my diet for about a week once, just to see if there was any difference in my health, and I noticed no difference either when I went egg-free or when I re-introduced them. Since eggs are such an affordable source of protein, I don't want to cut them out of my diet right now.

If you personally aren't doing well with eggs, then don't eat them! There are plenty of other protien sources available to O's.

somewhat off topic, but if your looking for fresh eggs, look for your local farmer. Many people have started to raise chickens, and are selling the eggs.  I know I have two regular, customers that I always save eggs for.  

Cage hens are in cages all their lives. It's becoming illegal in many countries, about time.

But even range free are Usually, feed some kind of grain once a day. Then after they lay their eggs are let out to roam.

Rachel D - Eggs produce mucus in me, and raise my pulse pretty high. They showed up as an avoid on my IgG blood test for food allergies. I wasn't eating eggs, per say, but they were in the mayonaise I ate sometimes on salads. Also, when I am already feeling ill for some other reason, eggs make me really nauseated.

Be careful.  I was eating nine eggs per week, all of them fried.  I blocked my gall bladder and then did a gall bladder flush with malic acid and a lemon juice + olive oil combination drink (I think this is recommended to do only once a year, not sure).  I had edema but am okay now.  Now I eat only four eggs per week and don't fry them.  I eat them hard or soft boiled.  Now I'm looking into getting my protein RDA via Sun Warrior Protein powder, trying to get it with no hemp seed in it.

I wonder if your gallbladder had so much trouble due to the oils in the eggs/butter (or whatever you fried them in) or if the problem was that your liver/gallbladder was weakened by not getting the animal protein that O bodies need to thrive.

Are you at all open to introducing poultry and/or fish to your diet? Another option would be to eat egg whites, if you think it's the yolks that were causing you problems.
