    I was just thinking (made my headache I can tell you) I know that chickens get egg bound - but, is it an old wives tale that humans get egg bound too.

    Since a lot of us have been having problems with constipation I was wondering if it could be EGGS!!!

    I know I have eaten lots of eggs since I started the diet, and my old grandma always used to say that if you eat to many eggs you'll get egg bound...

    So maybe it could be a combination of eggs and more fibre taken into the system than usual.....

    What do you think? Or am I totally losing the plot!!! LOL.. :eek:

    Only hens get egg bound!!!!! lol, unless you are trying to lay an egg??????

    If you are having trouble 'going' you need to drink more fluid.....eating fibre adds bulk but you really need something to help it pass through or else you will become constipated!

    I actually don't eat that many eggs on the diet BUT yesterday I had 9 eggs that had to be used by today so I went egg overload! :O LOL

    My daughter was sick of eggs by the end of the day......scrambled egg, meatloaf with boiled eggs inside, egg salad and egg mayonnaise (for the wee one, not me!). No more eggs for a while for me! :D

    I replied to a thread a few weeks ago and there was a lively debate on how many eggs members on the plan eat in a week. It was said by a couple of members that it didn't matter how many , and that there was no health concerns.... well I think eggs do cause severe constipation in some people.
