so I started eating 3 raw eggs in the morning with 1 yolk. I heard different things ( good and bad) about raw eggs so im gonna bring it to you guys.
What do you think good or bad .
( From research .0003% of eggs are dangerious 1 in 30,000)
Been eating raw eggs all my life without problems.
Nice... I mean it completly sucks and after I feel like im going to puke but it is much easier than eating cooked eggs in any form. I use to eat hard boiled .. HORRIBLE
Been eating raw eggs off and on for quite a while. No problems here. I mix them in my protein shakes, makes them actually taste better.
I love drinking raw eggs and do so quite often, but I remember reading somewhere that consuming an abundance of raw eggs may cause a biotin deficiency. Whether that's true or not I have no idea, but I'll try to find the source.
Edit: Apparently consuming too many raw egg whites by themselves is what may cause the biotin deficiency, but if you consume the whole raw egg (both yolk and whites) the biotin in the yolk makes up for it. I googled it and this page came up.. More On Raw Eggs - Share The Wealth
Raw yolk are the way to go, but I think the whites are better cooked, I usually separate them and use the whites in my oatmeal and the yolks i use in a shake later in the day.

This summer I plan on doing 18-21 raw egg yolks/day on my modified AD diet
I'll cook the egg whites. Somthing with the admin or advin in the egg that needs to be cooked or else you can't absorbe all of the eggs protein.

Fcuk it! I'm gonna go drink some right now. Rocky did it and he's sixty and probably buffer than anyone here.
It's true that raw white contains avidin which inhibits biotin absorption, as well as enzyme inhibitors (tripsin, I believe) so they're not digested the best raw.
Yolks are 100% good raw.
I just use whole raw eggs when consuming a large quantity because it would be too much of a pain to separate 36 yolks a day. But if I were just having a few I'd eat the yolks raw and cook the whites. If you do whole eggs raw just don't take your multi with them so you can absorb the biotin.
Avidin is neutralized by pasteurization. Supplementing with Biotin is good and cheap insurance.

I read through that article that Deegin posted and couldn't help but laugh at the reader comments. Here are a few choices ones...
"I have only recently begun eating whole raw eggs, one in the morning and one in the evening. I read somewhere that the human body cannot digest more than 25gm of protein at once. Also one requires about 25-30 gm of protein. Considering that an egg has about 40 gm of protein, how does the above correlate to people eating 3-4 whole raw eggs at a time ?"
"I run six days a week in the morning and lift every other day. After my runs I have a protein shake that has about 45g of protien with 3 raw eggs, a banana, and about 16oz of fat free milk. Is that too much protien at once? I remember someone telling me that too much protien at one time is bad on the kidneys."
I wish eggs had 40 grams of protein per egg...then we'd all be huge.
Other than those tidbits, the actual article itself was a good read.
That's funny. Yea if eggs had that much protein in them I would say fcuk you to my $100 a month whey protein supps. Good times, good times...........
I poke a nice hole in it n get most the white out ... not that difficult... and I eat one whole
How much of the carton are you consuming at one time? There's only 8 whites to a carton right? It could take 2-3 days to go through one, closer to 2 probably.
