    I think the egg yolks add a lot of essential fat and nutrients.

    Also how much depends on your diet and what fits in your macros.

    I currently eat 4 whole eggs pre bed.

    Eggs are one of the best complete proteins there is.
    Eggs don't raise your cholesterol, saturated fat does.
    The egg scare was due to a poorly done study in the seventies, and it has taken nearly forty years to shake the stigma.
    Eggs are a great addition to any serious lifters diet, and are very healthy.
    I eat about a dozen eggs a week, I prefer the omega 3 eggs from egglands best.

    Is it true cholesterol you ingest lowers the amount your liver makes?

    I have 1g fish oil a day. I'm trying to clean bulk. Save on the cutting diet because that's so hard to maintain.

    Eating fat won't make you fat. In fact it may do the opposite (in moderation of course).

    Egg whites only contain 3g of protein per egg. Where as whole eggs contain 7g of protein. Its good cholesterol. Plus eating oats and other whole grains help keep cholesterol down.

    I refuse to believe that eating whole eggs is bad for you. Humans have been eating whole eggs for longer than recorded history. The yolk is what the baby chick feeds on in a fertilized egg, thus it is full of most of the nutrients in the egg. Eating egg whites only is just low everything, and low doesn't necessarily mean better. I also have eaten raw eggs on several occasions and am probably going to make it a daily thing just out of pure convenience.

    Also just found a link to a study about the bioavailability of eggs cooked vs raw that has spiked my interest:

    http://jn.nutrition.org/content/128/10/1716.full

    According to this cooked egg protein digests at a rate of about 90% while raw egg protein only digests at about 51%. This brings up an interesting thought about using liquid eggs since they are pasteurized(thus cooked) meaning that they would be a superior alternative to raw eggs for addition to protein shakes or to be drank standalone for protein.

    Eggs in moderation are probably nothing but good for you. I'm not saying make every meal ever 4 eggs, but I frequently eat bacon and eggs and view it as a clean meal

    agreed.

    the cholesterol and other nutrients are welcomed.
    cholesterol is important for cells, steroid hormones (test), and vitamin d.

    I remember reading something about eating many raw eggs on a regular basis causing lutein deficiency.

    as already hit, the yolk is very important - did you know among other wonders in the yolk a dozen egg yolks has about 1g of arachidonic acid? same as xfacor. it oxidizes if you pan fry or scramble them, but if you hard boil you get it all.

    How many is too many? no such thing outside of total calorie count. 3 dozen whole eggs a day as a dozen each of your 3 main meals would be totally fine, there is 0 decent science supporting any risk from that, if anything it would help optimize your hormone levels.

    Eggs are key to building solid muscle. Has everything you need for an all day digesting protein. I take a cup of the flavored muscle egg yolks every morning for a slow digesting protein through out the day. Check them out kinda pricey but worth it. Muscleegg.com
