Ok so i know there is a saying that there is no such thing as a dumb question, but i think this is one of them LOL. I have been doing a ton of reading and learing from everyone! Now my question to you all is when you talk about using 6 egg whites, and 1 hole egg do you men Raw or cooked, and why one over the other. ( just threw numbers out there)

I use the pasteurized egg whites that come in a carton and scramble them. I know it's a little bit pricier than just separating actual eggs, but I never use the yolk and it's much easier.

Is the yolk really a source of some of the protein? I toss it cos I don't like the taste of the yolk.
03-26-2007, 01:28 PM
The yolk does provide protein but also a good amount of healthy and saturated fats. I just go straight egg whites however, because I get my fats from other sources at other times in the day.
03-26-2007, 01:30 PM
what % are we talking bout? If an egg says 8g protein per, how much does the yolk contain?
03-26-2007, 01:42 PM
I think the yolk is 4 grams protien, so about half.
03-26-2007, 02:23 PM
I eat 3 whole eggs per day...hard boiled
03-26-2007, 03:04 PM
i'm eating the yolk then
my dog will be mad now
03-26-2007, 03:30 PM
the yolk is also high in cholesterol, I think in just 4 yolks you have you daily limit...
I usually eat 5 white 2 whole...once or twice a day...scrambled
03-26-2007, 04:27 PM
Fit Model brings up an important fact. Most people that avoid the yolk are looking out for their cholesterol intake.
03-26-2007, 04:40 PM
Yea i'm weird, I can eat the yolk only if cooked fully.
03-26-2007, 05:02 PM
1 large egg yolk contains 1.6 g's of sat fat, 277 mg's cholesterol, and 2.9 g's of protein. These numbers aren't going to cause you problems unless you eat a 12 pack a day...
03-26-2007, 05:27 PM
Currently dieting for a show. I have 1 whole egg and 9 egg whites...scramble them and add in asparagus stir fry veggies. I have this twice a day and it is by far my favorite meal.
03-26-2007, 05:32 PM
I just drink em. Whole eggs btw I notice no difference whether I cook them or not. I actually think drinking them works better for me as it doesn't upset my stomach.

Egg white omelets with diced red and green bell peppers are good too. I ate that every morning in the Orleans hotel restaurant at the Olympia last year.
03-26-2007, 05:39 PM
Nah, I only get gas after my carb up meal.

One of my friends drank 2 raw eggs and then we went to work out and he ended up puking about 10 mins into the work out. Thats the reason i have not tried raw eggs yet. But the Raw eggs in the Whey sounds good to me i love cake batter!!!!

Since we are on the topic of eggs... for breakfast i have 2 whole eggs 3 whites...with a can of tuna and peppers,onions, and mushrooms fried in...delicious and full of protein

I don't believe anyone mentioned that raw eggs are nearly useless because only half of the protein is utilized due to the fact that they have not been denatured yet. When eggs (and all meats) are cooked, the structure of the protein is uncoagulated (straightened out) and then and only then is the 100% (or most) of the protein able to be digested and utilized in the body. Always cook your eggs
04-05-2007, 09:12 PM
That's not necessarily true, when referring to raw pasteurized egg whites.

I add in lowfat or nonfat cottage cheese to my omelets. Really adds a ton of flavor.

I eat 4 whole eggs every morning, puts me in a good mood for the rest of the morning.

Many of the foods you eat every day are only fully beneficial in terms of their nutrient absorption if they are cooked. Cooking activates these nutrients and makes them bioavailable. Tomatoes are another good example of this. The lycopene and vast amounts of phytochemicals are only truly beneficial once processed or cooked. In raw form, tomatoes provide little benefit. Similar statements are true of eggs. Why jump down this guys throat, its clear he has some understanding of food science, more probably than the majority that have made snappy remarks about his comment.

I had always believed that to be nonsense and had actually had many knowledgeable people tell me the opposite was true so I called him on it as he stated with a sense of assuredness vs stating an opinion.
He posted studies and shut me up. Anyone who has taken a basic food science course should also know that not everything that is taught is true or based on sound science and or studies.

Good lifting to all!

I would like to believe that it starts the process of breaking the protein down into amino acids, which in turn, would make it MORE available for absorption.

Here is another point- fresh fertile eggs are much better for you according to Gironda. I just got back from a local farmer that I bought 2 gallons of raw milk, 1/2lb raw butter, and 2.5 dozen of fresh fertile eggs. I'll be eating good now that I found this farmer 2 miles away from me!

Another good product is egg protein sold at Vitamin world and other supplement store. If you cook it it really hardens like egg whites. Eggcellent form of protein.. I higly suggest you trry it. It can also be purchased in the baking section called just whites or something of that nature.
