I tolerate them well, but everyone is different... if they are giving you problems I'd stay away from them!

I love fried eggs but can't eat them..It's on of the things that I CANT eat at all. If I eat one I am immediately in the restroom....sometimes before I even get finished eating I have to go, so I don't eat them...For me Eggs and Pork are aren't good for me to eat ever!!!!

I'm alright with them, its one of the things that doesn't affect me too much, as long as I eat them in moderation.
I tend to only have anything with egg in once a week so it doesn't upset me.
But salmon I could eat every day! ;)

I don't have problems with either of these. They are actually both considered safe foods for me. But as mentioned above, diet is so individual. Hugs!

I do okay with eggs if they're not scrambled too dry. Salmon always bothers me but I eat it at times anyway. I think it's too rich for my gallbladder or something. I always feel icky after eating it.

Salmon has been the best food for me and is something I eat often. I have noticed that I do better when preparing the salmon I take all of the oils off of it and then grill it on a gas bbq. Then I add just a little bit of balsamic vinegar that helps with the spices that I put on it and seem to make it easier on my stomach.

Salmon is on the safest side of my diet. Eggs are usually ok.

Have fun with them!

I can eat eggs at every meal and have no problem. Fish too. I don't like salmon, so I don't eat that, but I tend to eat a lot of fish in general and consider it one of my really safe foods. But like everything else with this DD, if it bothers you, then its a no-no for you.

I am fine with both eggs and Salmon.  However, if you are not able to tolerate them, it could be the Omega Oil.  Salmon is high with them and a lot of eggs now have them added to them.  The oil is good for us but they are an anti-inflammatory.  Check your eggs.  Make sure they don't have any Omega 3 added and then try them out. 
Good luck.

I went for a few years when both of them (eggs, salmon) would make me burp/belch for a few hours after eating.

Lately I don't seem to have much trouble with either, for what it's worth.

Salmon and eggs are both fantastic foods for me, as I have crohn’s colitis and base my diet on the SCD – which encourages plenty of good protein and low carbs. Salmon and eggs/fish and protein are so good for my tum!
