These two dietary items are applying entirely too much fat to my diet. Are there lower fat eggs? I thought eggs were supposed to be a staple of the bodybuilder but that bastard website fit day tells me otherwise...

WHere can I buy egg whites? or should I attempt to seperate the yolks?

Boil them and separate them. Not hard at all.

boil the egg (while its in its shell) for about 15 minutes. then when its done let it cool down for about 5 minutes, then peel the shell off the egg. and then separate the whites from the yolks.

you can buy egg whites in a carton, such as better n' eggs or egg beaters. available at all grocery stores next to the regular eggs.

that works as well, but IMHO (since im tight with money) i find it much cheaper to buy the eggs and separate them myself.

Crack the eggs into some kind of container, then use a spoon to scoop out the yolks. 1 whole egg for every 5 whites seems to be a good combination.

Ya know I was doing the egg white carton thing for a while but I so totaly notice the taste now and it makes me feel sick to my stomach. Plus it adds an annoying skin to the eggs.

although some brands are fat free, they add a lot of sugar to the cheese. so you'd want to be sure to check the nutrition label on the FF cheese.

I agree with GS. Fat free cheese is full of crap. It's much better to go for a naturally low fat cheese like farmers, swiss or mozerella.

Try using a ratio of whole eggs to egg white. When I make eggs in the a.m. I use 4-5 white and 1 whole egg, but you can adjust depending on your calorie breakdown and what you think tastes acceptable.

For cheese, try using a strongly flavored cheese, like Parmesan, Romano, or feta. These add a LOT of flavor for just a little bit of cheese.

Just remember egg whites have less protein. I just eat the whole egg. When I was younger I used to seperate them. Everybody laughed at me I was throwing out the best part. If the rest of your diet is in check a few eggs won't hurt you.
Never gonna give up my cheese.

What I meant was don't go by the numbers on the carton for your protein intake if sepearting them.

4 large whole eggs contain about 20g of fat. That's not too much imo.

there are easier ways to separate a yolk then boiling or using spoons ... it's called using the shell.

crack egg, gently pull apart two halves dropping the egg white into bowl, roll the yolk between the halves to remove all the whites.

half of an egg's protein and all of the fat is in the yolk. i eat 6 large or xL whites each morning (~24g protein). if the yolk ends up in my batch, i eat that too. there is no need to sweat the small stuff.

i don't typically eat cheez, so i can't help you there besides suggesting you limit consumption and adjust your other macros around it.
