I keep reading about people who have a heard time eating eggs. I love eggs and have access to farm fresh, free-range chicken, duck, guinea, and quail eggs. I would be soooo sad if I had to give up the beautiful hen fruit.

Does anyone know WHY eggs seem to be hard on the digestive tract? Are eggs a problem just in the beginning or long-term as well?

I have never left eggs entirely. Egg drop Soup in early stages, eggs in many forms since. They've never bothered me, the Protein is great, and the taste twangs my buds.

I am addicted to egg beaters. They have a new 3 cheese which is so good. I also used egg whites in the beginning and made egg salad with low fat mayo. So good.

I had a problem with eggs as soon as I got to soft foods, at about 6 weeks. It was the only food that I have ever had a problem with. Fast forward to 6 months and I have no problem with them at all. I asked my stalker-nutritionist about it, and all she could come up with was that possibly the amount of Iron in the eggs may not have agreed with the smaller stomach. It was a guess on her part, but she did say that she had heard about eggs from several of her gastric patients. All you can really do it try them and see. Some folks it may not be an issue. I had 1 whole and 1 egg white this am for Breakfast after my workout. I'm fine.

I'd obviously ask my doc first, but does egg drop soup count as full liquids or mushy food since it has the egg in it? That's one of my favorite soups!

I'm fortunate. I tried eggs for the first time yesterday and it sat well. Maybe it depends how it's cooked. Mine was over medium. Also tried it poached.

I tried egg for the first time yesterday. It was delicious until 5 minutes later when I threw it up. Haha

      Ok...so keeping my daily weight updated on here is getting tedious due to the the daily 0-3 lbs fluctuations.  Soooo...I figure I'm just going to update every 1-2 weeks moving forward.

        Yeah, I kinda do it when I see a new low. Then it fluctuates up and down up and down until I finally see a new low. Mine went down to 131 on Saturday but is now back to 133, lol. So I won't log it till I see 131 for a second time.

        I do my daily weight graph in My Fitness Pal. Much easier and it keeps a cool graph!!

        Me too (sort of). I gifted myself a fancy-shmancy smart scale back in January and it wirelessly updates the data to Apple Health in my phone, which in turn automatically updates MFP (among other apps I have). Very hands off on my part. Updating BP was the only manual weight updating I was doing, which has stopped being fun and instead become a job, now that the weight goes up and down so much.

        LOL the joys of maintenance! ;) NOT!

      4. sillykitty

        Like @FluffyChix I updated at every new low, consequently I'm now listed as my lowest weight. I should probably update it to where I've been maintaining, which is +3 lbs or so from that weight.

      5. FluffyChix

        Nah, keep your low and stay aware of your upper threshold so you don't hit it. :D ;)

      OMG! I dreamt of cake!!
      As of late, my dreams have been food obsessed. Last night I dreamed of gorging on good old American sheet cake with chocolate frosting. There was white frosting as well. Good thing we can't get that in Sweden! I just hope that I haven't become too engrossed in food. BUT they are only dreams after all.
