Debunking the cholesterol myths....
Dietary cholesterol has insignificant effect on blood cholesterol levels in a majority of people. Furtermore,
cholesterol is a vital building block of cell membranes and thus important in maintaining cell membrane integrity. It is also a precursor TO ALL steroid hormones (including testosterone, as several guys here already pointed out), and essential for conducting nerve impulses. Connections between neurons (synapses), depend on the presence of cholesterol and without these connections, processes like memory, learning and motor function would be compromised. Believe it or not, one of the reason why sleep is good for you is because of the increased synthesis of cholesterol during sleep. Unless you plan on eating a dozen eggs per day, I wouldn't worry about separating the yolk out. Besides, the bioavailability of the protein in egg is much greater when the egg is consumed whole.
Enough of that science brainwash...

Wow. You guys really know your diet ish. I'm so glad I joined this site. So, what's up with eating raw eggs? Other than eliminating the oils you would use to cook them and thus reducing excess fat / calories that could be better spent elsewhere, are there more benefits?

If you're worried about salmonella, look at the farming practices in your area. It's rare to catch it this part of the world

ha! A girl after my own heart - bless!Nice, I'll start adding raw eggs to protein shakes, most powders mix terribly, and yolk lecithin is a natural emulsifier. Throw in some coconut milk and all the anti-saturated and anti-cholesterol advocates can pull their hairs out as far as I care! :lol
One day I misread a recipe and ended up downing a ~3,000 cal shake. Had the above ingredients plus 300ml of cream...

In regards to raw eggs the risk of salmonella poisoning is low like neuro pointed out but if your still worried you can eat/use the pasteurized eggs that come in cartons.
Also if your eating raw eggs I thought I have read you should avoid eating any egg that is cracked.

jakellpet has the right idea! I chuck whole eggs into my shakes everyday. 4 normally does the trick: D

I think the best ways keep all the "good stuff" in the yolk intact are to:
-cook over easy (liquid yolk)

Does anyone here soft boil their eggs?
I use to work at a restaurant that would do that and it makes the eggs like a portable over easy egg, they are great.

I think the point of eating raw eggs is that it will help your body absorb the protein faster. But from what I understand the body can't absorb the protein in raw eggs as well as when they are cooked.

One way to open a big can of worms is a thread about raw eggs. There's just too many myths and misconceptions surrounding this topic.
I've eaten at least 6 whole eggs a day since i can remember and raw eggs were a staple in a protein shake before whey became popular. Noone i know, including me, ever got sick and the biggest and strongest i ever got was when i was eating loads of steak and eggs.
They are just so convenient and i never get sick of them.
