I remember years ago it was considered that a person should eat a maximum of two eggs a week. Is this still the expert thought on it, or have things changed?

Why was it considered important?

I don't know what the expert opinion is but eggs are a great source of protein so I eat three or four a week. I don't eat meat so eggs are useful, also relatively cheap. I just wish it was easier to get ethically produced ones.
I think it was thought there was a link between eggs and high cholesterol levels, which we now know there isn't.
I am not sure how many eggs should be eaten, but I usually have at least one egg a day.
I don't count them, but we have something with egg in it for breakfast at least every second day, so would well exceed two.
That is a defunct myth. People used to think that the cholesterol in eggs gave you high cholesterol, but it doesn't. Eggs are actually very good for, and you can have as many as you like a week (within reason).
Is a o.k. number.
Especially if they're golden!
LOL :) Love it!

I think we're advised to have one egg a day. Good protein source at breakfast time.
One a day is fine, I think. It's not the cholesterol that's considered the problem now, it's the saturated fat.
7 eggs in a week and depending on your mode

It depends on the persons preferences, but I tend to have about half a dozen spread accross the week. I tend to have cravings for eggs and I trust my instincts; they are full of protein so why not?
They keep changing their minds about whether eggs can cause high cholestorol, and as I have this, I tend not to eat an egg a day but eat about 2 a week plus what I put into baking.
I have found that each doctor thinks differently on this, and I do not think it has been proved that they do not produce high cholestorol, though I do know they are healthy in other ways.

According to my doc two eggs for breakfast perfect start for the day ,

I believe two a week is an old way of thinking. I don't know what the number is now but I eat 3 to 6 a week. Scrambled eggs are one of my favourite foods.
I have two eggs for breakfast at least 5 days per week. Perfect meal. Has so many nutrients.
As many as their hearts desire!

My naturopath suggested 1-2 eggs per day when I was deficient in many things, including iron & Vitamin D. My levels got back to normal after that. It would have also dispelled that myth about eggs causing cholesterol as my levels went down. I try and have eggs for breakfast every day now. :-)
home produced eggs by my chickens much healthier than store bought eggs.
one a day sometimes more if making scrambled eggs or an egg sandwich. I do not take any notice of what is printed of what we should eat or not eat.
