How many eggs can eat?

Several years ago began to say that they should not eat more than three eggs a week which could significantly increase the levels of cholesterol and triglycerides. However, this claim has been losing strength as it has been shown that most causing these increased levels are the consumption of trans fats, in combination with the rest of food or even be suffering from continuous stress situations.
We can consume eggs almost daily, according to our situation and taking into account that we should combine them with vegetables, as well as being aware that they are animal and therefore protein would not be necessary to include fish or meat in the same meal.
In addition, if we want to lose weight, or we must reduce triglycerides we will avoid eating them fried or in sauces, desserts, etc.
We can also switch, for example, chicken with the quail eggs.
