6 eggs too much in a day? No idea, not a nutritionist. I think that if your friend is consuming that many and his various blood tests and what not all remain unchanged and in a healthy range, then I would argue that he is perfectly fine eating that many.
On some weight lifting forums, I have heard people eating that many per day for long periods of time with no health issues.
Personally, I have eaten 12-16 per week for many months in a row (2-3 per day most mornings) and I have never had cholesterol problems. During that time I was tested often, as I was on blood pressure medicine and my doctor was keeping an eye on my liver functions.
that's a fair point. Not that eggs are bad for you, but why would anyone need to eat 6-7 eggs in a sitting ?
