    Egg white versus whole eggs


    Whats the difference? As far as bulking is concerned. Heard that whole eggs have plenty of good **** in them plus healthy fats and cholesterol to make hormones

    If you are bulking the right way, aka working out the right way, eating the right types of foods at the right times, then why are you worried about whole eggs? its an egg lol eat it. its one of the few amazing bulking foods, i eat anywhere from 5 to 10 full eggs per day on my bulking diet and I'm still only 5% body fat after months of my clean bulk.

    i am not a medical expert tho, make sure you stay on top of your cholesterol levels and general health issues

    All very true, im an ER nurse (only one in the city who can deadlift 300) but i wondered from a bulking standpoint. Personally, i eat at least 4 eggs for breakfast and my hdl/ldl is perfect. Thanks man!

    I personally always throw in 1 whole egg in the morning with my breakfast no matter what, but if I decide to eat eggs again throughout the day I stick to only eggwhites.

    Lift the fücking weight from the floor, or leave it on the ground. The thoughts are supposed to be daunting. The pain is meant to be tormenting.

    I'm guessing he meant only ER nurse in his city that can lift 300 lbs. That's probably believable.

    Sounds like you work in a pretty small hospital in a small rural town.

    I also work in a hospital and we get waves of new nurses just about every year. Our average nurse probably is from mid twenty to early forty.

    With regard to the thread topic of eggs and cholesterol, dietary cholesterol does not significantly impact serum cholesterol. Eggs are an amazing food choice!

    I wonder why your hospital isnt full of younger people then. Every hospital I have worked in all had similar staffed aged groups and all the local colleges have waiting list for the RN program. Its odd your nurse average age is 55

    Sorry I meant nationwide, but the critical care nurses tend to be older since they don't hire new grads in the ER often

    Wow, so every 55 year old female is allergic to physical fitness?? I know lots of women over 60 who do triathlons, marathons, body building competitions and mountain bike races. Perhaps they can't lift 300 pounds over their heads, but they would give you a run for your money in any race.

    Lol. Poor guy makes one statement and you all toss him under the bus.

    The "eat the whole fn egg" answer is correct. I eat 4-6 every morning.

    When I run out of red meat my egg intake usually goes way up. A dozen+ eggs a day is not new to me

    Look up criticalbench on here. He is a nurse and damn close to earning his pro card. There is always someone better then you
    I noted the winky face, but still...

    One's body being "better" than another is very subjective. And there's not just one uniform way to objectively critique someone's body. Some people don't dig the competitive bodybuilder physiques.


    And back to the topic lol... Just eat the whole egg. But I wouldn't want to be eating much more than 6 eggs a day. Not because of cholesterol but because of having nasty egg farts all the time. Frank Zane said if you were exercising and dieting well you didn't really have to worry about dietary cholesterol. He ate a lot of whole eggs and he stayed ripped and he's over 80 now. Still looking good.

    You are correct about the cholesterol, but Frank Zane is only 69 years old.
