That is no big deal!: Just relax and do not get so uptight about small variations in what you eat. An extra egg never hurt anybody.

Can't tell: The amount of food you need depends greatly on your body's makeup (genetics) and activities. We all heard of Michael Phlep's appetite when training for the Olympics without gaining any weight and professional football players ballooning up after retirement by keeping the same diet. 2 eggs are fine unless you are gaining weight. Be sure to have more veggies and fruits in diet.
