Why remove egg yolks?

How come many are recommending to remove the yolks of eggs before comsuming them? - especially in the morning.

For example (without looking up the exact quote) TT reccomends somthing like 4 egg whites and 1 yolk in the morning. So just wondered why to remove the yolks? Do they not have nutritional qualities in them too?

I have a vested interesting in asking because i've never really liked the whites of eggs all that much, and so normally to be able to eat them i mix them with the yolk, such as scrambled or omlette. Thanks.

    there is no need to remove yokes

    however yokes is where most of the fat is in an egg removing them saves cals and fats

    if they fit in your diet eat them


    if you dont like eggs eat somthing else

    People tend to cut egg yolks to reduce the total calorie content of each meal.

    They keep the egg whites in the meal to increase the protein content of said meal which improves the protein to fat ratio

    Yolks are fine.
