I Love eating egg whites as one of my main protein sources. But is it bad to have a few eggwhite meals throughout the day? I know you should get your protein intake from many sources but is it really that serious?
As long as your having other whole food protein sources in your diet, I don't see the problem in this.

i htought i heard somewhee that too many egg whites can cause a biotin definciency i think it was....is this true?
I fukcing love egg yolks great article!!!!
I love the YOLK and if you aint eating them your missing out (unless you have a problem with cholesterol). Egg Whites is just another example of the Masses being Asses. If you workout and eat right you won't have a cholesterol problem (unless its in ur genetics) so by not eating the yolk you are cheating yourself out of many vitamins and minerals. Eat the YOLK Eat the yolk eat the yolk Eat it.
Also almost half the protien in eggs is in the yolk so if you think by eating 3 egg whites ur getting about 20 grams of protien think again ur problem only getting about 10
I think some people are missing the point.
The point is this. If you have a macro target for a meal of say 45g protein/15g fat. You can not hit that with whole eggs.
So "for me" I would hit my fat(whatever that may be) with yolk, and fill in the void with whites.
Sometimes I would rather just eat all whites, and have my eggs with a piece of steak for my fat.
In the morning I throw 1 full egg in the pan (yolk).. But I am talking about having eggs throughout the day. If I feel like having another egg meal I just keep it strictly eggwhites
....and for some reason I feel so great eating eggs. My body feels better eating eggs I can't explain it
Again, why are you avoiding the yolks? Are you getting another fat source during your meal? Or trying to avoid all fat in general?
I dont avoid the yolk. I add 1 yolk to my meal but its mostly eggwhites. I do get fats from other sources. Omega-3 mayo from smart balance, almonds, natty pb, sweet potatos I eat alot of sweet potatos. I'm just asking if it's bad to eat eggs alot as one of my main sources of protein because I love eating eggs
too bad sweet potatoes are fat free lol
A 5 dozen pack of eggs is five bucks at wal Mart. Way cheaper and more beneficial than whey...
I've been keeping my diet steady
for a long time and recently boosted cals a bit
due to extreme wo sessions, different supplements
and overall my body requiring more nutrients not to lose
My cal boost came 90% from egg whites and I feel so much better.
Egg whites are good for you, with that said, I eat 1 yolk a day
and about 5/7 whites in form of dessert with whey or fat&carb free pancakes
As for they yolk containing protein and vitamin, 80% of the protein in the
egg is in the white, as for the vitamin, c'mon eating egg yolk as source of
vitamin ain't that great, the fat vs everything else ratio is not worth it,
especially when dieting/cutting, extra calories come with the yolk,
not only nutrients and vitamins.. and especially considering most bb (if not all of us)
supplement with fish oil and multivitamins, dosed so high you should eat 200 yolk
to get the same amount
Egg whites ftw
The yolk is important to me I need the fat.
