How many eggs is it safe to eat in one week?

Recommendations vary, but three to seven eggs per week is fine for healthy people.

People who already have heart disease or diabetes “need to be more careful,” said Dr. Walter Willett, chairman of the department of nutrition at the Harvard School of Public Health, but even for them, eggs are relatively benign compared to other cardiac risk factors like consuming saturated fat or trans fat, smoking, not eating enough fruits and vegetables and not getting enough exercise.
