My breakfast shake

I came up with this when I was trying to figure out a way to get more calories in the morning, but at the same time doing it quickly and without too much effort (I'm not a morning person) Anyway, here's what I add to the mix:
3 whole eggs
1 slice wheat bread
1 pack oatmeal
1 cup 2% milk

Blend for about 30 seconds

I use raw eggs, if you're scared to do that, you could cook them and add them, but that kinda takes away from making it so fast and easy. Also, I always use cinnamon or maple brown sugar oatmeal, it gives it a really nice taste. When I first tried this, I figured it would taste awful, but to my suprise I really enjoy drinking it, rather than having to gulp it all down at once like some prtein/mrp shakes, I can actually drink this normally and enjoy it.

Nutritional breakdown goes like this:
Calories - 570
Protein - 33g
Fat - 21g
Carbs - 61g

About half of the carbs come from the oatmeal, I use the instant oatmeal from a pack, unflavored would probably have less carbs and you coujd also adjust the amount you put in there to suit your needs. Since it's something I have for breakfast, I don't worry too much about the extra carbs.

    No, the cholestrol isn't the good kind, and you run the risk of salmonella aswell as a sh!t stomach from your body not being able to breakdown the raw eggs

    What does bread taste like in a shake? Never tried that. Oatmeal works good, but bread? Why not just more oatmeal lol

    Eggs raise LDL(Low Density) cholestrol levels - this is the stuff that blocks your pipes up.
    HDL(High Density) cholestrol is the good cholestrol, and these clean your pipes out and can help lower LDL cholestrol levels...If my memory serves me correctly, HDL cholestrol can be found in mono and poly-unsaturates.

    I heard that the salmonella is only in the yokes, the same place as the cholestoral.... just use the whites and throw away the yokes.. when i scramble eggs i only use 1 yoke but 4 whites

    Raw eggs, white or yolks cannot be digested by the stomach properly!

    Just add some whey-protein instead of the eggs. I have been makeing a similar breakfast lately, the only downside is I have put on a lot of fa. But one must not forget, it is offseason now :)

    Knighty; i thought it was the ratios of the LDL and HDL cholesterol relative to each other rather than the absolute values which was the key.

    Yes, consuming poly's and mono's helps raise the HDL ratio/levels, and consuming saturated fats can raise the LDL ratio/levels.

    I think one way of testing the ratio is dividing total cholestrol by HDL levels, and the higher the levels the worse it is, and lower the levels the better it is.

    Do you happen to have any articles/sites detailed this? My current BF shake contains 5 raw egg whites, so it would be a good read.

    Really, I've never heard that. What makes the cooked eggs digestable while the raw is not? Cause, if I'm not getting any benefit form the eggs I'll switch things up.
