    Are you leaving out the yolks for a specific reason? I know the Fat/Cholesterol content is somewhat high... but the yolk provides most of the vitamins and minerals as well as taste

    you could probably use the yolk or yolk of part of the eggs if you wanted to and get the same result.

    What's wrong with cholesterol? It's the building block of testosterone.

    For that matter, what's wrong with fat?

    i agree, there is a weak correlation between dietary cholesterol and the cholesterol found in your body, if your cholesterol is high, start balencing your macros out a little more evenly

    Black beans are a staple in huevos rancheros, and corn tortillas aren't that bad for ya.

    i think its about 6g of protein per egg so 4 would be 24g.

    yes i eat the egg whites and the yolk, we need the fat in it. i do for my ckd.

    Most of the protein in an egg is in the white, it's approx 3.5-4g protein per egg white.

    There is no exact answer. It depends on the size of the egg. In an average white there is approximately 3.6 grams of protein. So you're looking at anywhere between 12-14 grams of protein in 4 egg whites.
