I am confused about what benifits do eggs have on bulking.Some say its good others say it does not benefit your bulking.Though ihave met people who strongly recomend eggs during bulking especially for those who prefer to stay away from supplements.Help me out on this plzz.And if I consume egg,how many per day?I am sure many people out there have tried eggs.THX.

People recommend eggs for those who choose not to buy supplements because they're cheap and they're real food. As far as bulking goes they have a place in a bulking diet simply because they're cheap, easy to eat, easy to bring along places to eat boiled and are a good source of protein. There are other health benefits to eggs as well. Anyway as far as how many eggs you eat. Well thats up to you. Eat as many as you want. As far as cholesterol goes, that's an argument that has yet to be settled so I suggest you use your head. Don't a dozen eggs a day for months on end. Id say 6 whole eggs a day is fine and you can eat however many whites you want on top of that.

eggs are packed with protein, which are esential for rebuilding muscle. they say you need 1g of protein for every pound in your body per day, for good gains. 1 large egg has about 9g of protien, times that by 5 you got 45g of protein (not to sound sacastic) and a good start to a day :)

also, eggs are a cheap source of protein, for a buck fidy you got over 100g of protein.

some people take the yolks out or just leave a couple because of cholestrol

Take a look at this page http://my.webmd.com/content/article/1676.50058
Is the stuff that they hve written true?Or is just another sh***y article.Its quite well known that protien plays an important role in building muscle..........then what these people trying to say.They gotta have some good reasons to say what they are saying.

Eggs are the best source of protein bar none.

Am I the only one who noticed the study they quoted was from the Journal of the American Geriatrics Society?

1. Eggs are second only to whey in protein biological value.

2. Eggs are high in cholestrol so more than two a day should be taken with caution. If your diet is otherwise low in saturated fat then it may not be a problem.

3. The WebMD article says that extra protein ALONE will not build muscle. However, there are studies to show that resistance trained atheletes require more protein than the average joe. But since atheletes also require more calories than the average joe, it's debatable whether they need a higher percentage of calories from protein. Everyone's metabolism is different. Here's a good article on the matter :


I'd say that 20% of calories is a minimum for protein for a bodybuilder.

If you're worried about cholesterol/fat, then separate the yolks out or do the old "mostly whites with 1 or 2 yolks" trick.

Egg omlett with 3 whites and 1 yolk using safflour or olive oil is great! Eat it with fruit or over cracked wheat toast and you have a very good meal.

Egg whites contain about 3g protein each and the yolk contains about 3g protein and 4g fat. Whites have no cholesterol but the yolks have high cholesterol (if for some reason you are worried about that).

Eggs digest relatively slow and break down to amino acids over a very long period of time. Cassiene (cottage cheese) is slightly slower and whey is much faster.

Eat the whites as people have said before. The comments that you are receiving are right on. Man, I eat a 18 eggs atleast every day. That is 7 cartons per week. Only seven bucks.

Normally I just have 4 egg whites and 2 whole eggs for breakfast and that is just fine for making gains without gaining phat

" I usually take a "powernap" when I come home from school!"


There's an egg laying in a bed, with a very relaxed, almost satisfied look on his face. To his right, a chicken grumpily rolls over, pulling the sheets away from the egg.

Chicken: "Well, that answers THAT question"

Umm, oops. I could have sworn I copied Millertime saying "What came first the chicken or the egg?"

Anyway, that's what I was refering too. .
