    I havn't been going to heavy with the lifting right now. I was planning on a dozen a day starting next week some time. My current plan was 8 whole 4 white, but this could be reconsidered given everyone's overall belief on the yolk being beneficial.


  2. Yolk contains about 270mg of cholesterol per large egg. Cholesterol converts to testosterone (eventually) the more yolks you eat the more testosterone you have! You eat enough eggs and its almost like taking a mild pro-hormone only you don't get shutdown. Well maybe not that much but you get the point. Plus the yolk contains arachidonic acid and a mineral/nutrient profile that rivals some multivitamins. Eat the yolk.

    You convinced me, whole eggs from now on.. Haha.

  4. Oh and if you cook your eggs with some olive oil the oil can help with the conversion to test. Although this wont really apply to you if you just hard boil them.

    I hardboil them to easily eat the whites. If I am eatting the whole egg, Ill cook them. Back to ommelettes.

I know the risk of salmonella, but isnt that why you buy pasturized??

    Only 1 in 30,000 eggs contains salmonella, according to the Agriculture Department (outdated) report......But i dont know if that mean my egg white out of the carton?

    I do it all the time, bulking or cutting... Been doing it for over 8 months now and haven't gotten sick yet.

  7. Egg whites taste fine straight up fried in butter, with salt on them. Lots of salt.

  8. I find them to be a little to bland for my taste. Ill stick to egg whites in my shake and wholes eggs for my breakfast meal....

  9. make sure to not overeat egg whites, something like 20+ a day can cause a biotin deficiency
