Since now a days everything for protein is compared to eggs, I'm wondering what ammount of protein is actually in eggs, and wether or not the yoke counts/matters for the protein. I hardboil my eggs (Don't eat the yoke), or make scrambled etc for breakfast. Just wondering.

You should eat the whole egg. Dietary cholesterol has not been shown to increase blood cholesterol, so its perfectly fine.

There are about 6 and a half grams of protein in 1 large hard boiled egg. If you remove the yolk, you lose about half that.

THere is a good article on eggs in the articles section under diet and nutrition. Should answer all your egg questions.
