    dunno, i think i read somewhere that you shouldn't have more than 2 whole eggs per day? but it's the yolks you need to be sparing with i believe. that's why there's lots of recipes floating about with (for example) 4 egg whites and 1 yolk. it's the egg white that contains all the protein

    im no expert but it is said that 2 egg yolks a week is okay. the reason being is that the yolks contain too much cholesterol. egg whites are fine.

    What they say and what is true are two differnt things. Do a search on the keyword egg and your jaw will drop. We have had this war many times..


    I eat around 6 egg yolks per week My holks have omega 3s.
    I eat over 100 egg whites per week.

    If you eat a tone of egg whites you might want to take a biotin sup. I do.

    Safe in what way?

    Well if you eat several dozen in one shot then you may go over your calorie limit to be honest...

    And the yolk is fine to eat. It's tasty too. The thing with the yolk is that it's got some fat in it so it's a little dense in calories.. so to bump up the ratio or protein of it all some of the yolks are dropped if quite a few eggs are being had at once. Or drop the yolks just for the sake of having a very clean high protein source of just whites.. The yolk usually still has about half the protein of the egg. Has a number of other beneficial nutrients..

    And to quote Nigee from a previous post: dietary cholesterol has little effect on serum cholesterol unless you have a tendency to high serum cholesterol anyway.

    I dont think so. The average large egg white contains 17 calories.
    I could eat all 100 in one day and wouldnt get close to my caloric needs. The yolk contains double the amount of calories but does have some benifits as well. Thats why i have 1 or 2 with each serving.


    I had 20 egg whites today with 2 yolks.
    Total protein from eggs =72g from egg white and 2.8 from yolk

    Total egg calories = 394.

    Its not uncommon for people to make the assumption that eggs are bad for you. I would agree if whole eggs were being consumed but when you target the white, you get sold protein and something tasty. I love boiled eggs. I cant get enough of them. But again, i do suggest having a few yolks here and there.

    Egg Yolks TAKEN FROM - http://www.dietbites.com/diet-calories-in-egg-yolks.html

    The yolk is extremely high in cholesterol, containing more than two-thirds of the recommended daily limit of 300 mg! However, the yolk has many health strengths necessary for immunity, healthy skin, nerves and vision. The yolk contains good amounts of B Vitamins, Vitamin A, iron and riboflavin.

    One large egg contains 59 calories.

    Interesting Yolk: Many tempera paints, which artists have used for centuries, contain an egg yolk base.

    I cant believe some of you are asking whether its ok to have just 2/3 yolks. Come on guys, the aim in this game is to put on muscle right? Get as many eggs down you as you want, and like YIB quotes, dietary cholesterol has little effect on serum cholesterol.

    Whether i'm bulking or cutting, i wont baulk about eating 6 full eggs (i prefer them scrambled) in one go. Eggs are cheap, tasty and very nutritious. When I'm bulking i'll have sometimes go through a dozen a day - so we're talking 84 FULL EGGS per week.

    Eat those eggs!

    Thats the whole egg isnt it? I suppose there is no way of knowing the protein content in just the egg white.

    I listed above the protein content of just the egg white.

    too many refined carbs, too much booze, too much fat, little exercise, smoking............. many factors together.

    simply eating a lot of eggs isnt going to give you bad cholesterol. if you ate a lot of crap and also a lot of eggs maybe, but not on their own.

    it's the egg white that contains all the protein
    Not so. See http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-B00001-01c201p.html and http://www.nutritiondata.com/facts-B00001-01c201o.html and set Serving size to 100g.
    Egg yolk is 16% protein and egg white is 11% protein by weight. However, as there is more white than yolk in an egg, the white has marginally more actual protein than the yolk.

    As to how many eggs per day are safe, two per day are definitely safe. See http://www.ajcn.org/cgi/reprint/32/5/1051.pdf Some BBers here eat shed-loads of whole eggs per day and have normal serum cholesterol. If you're worried about your serum cholesterol, ask your GP to get a full lipid profile done.

    The yolk is extremely high in cholesterol, containing more than two-thirds of the recommended daily limit of 300 mg!
    The RDL of 300mg is total bollox as the liver produces ~1000mg of cholesterol/day. The body has mechanisms for excreting cholesterol (in bile) and re-absorbing it further down the gut as required, so in healthy people, eating cholesterol has very little effect on serum cholesterol.

    Thanks all for you're comments

    I read 1 yolk contains 66% of you're daily cholesterol intake, I personally was going to have 2 whole eggs per day, but this would mean my RDA for cholestrol would be 133% and as my cholesterol is a little on the high side as it is, further more it also said the main factor in high cholestrol is a diet in high saturated fats. Since i'm new to training and am cutting while on a 'healthy' diet compared to my usual poor diet, do you think 2 whole eggs per day would be fine?

    Thanks
