View Full Version : eggy question

01-11-2005, 12:34 PM
I am currently in the process of a bulking phase and using John Berardi's method of calculation im on about 4000kcal a day.

Im trying to follow the recommendation about (P+F P+C) but not both together, so basically if im not working out in the morning i like to have an omlette.

I am currently having 1whole egg + 5 whites +ham and cheese.
this doesnt give me that many calories so.........

my question is because im bulking would i be better off having 6 whole eggs as this gives me a lot more calories or is this too much cholesterol/fat etc?
i know some fat is good but is this too much?

i hope thats clear

thanks guys

Yes you should eat the whole egg

EDIT: You should eat your eggs boiled if youre worried about saturated fats.

Don't worry too much about breaking up carbs and fat. From what I've seen, the consensus seems to be that fat storage simply as a result of eating carbs and fat in the same meal is only a major issue if the carbs are promoting a very large insulin response. In his update to Massive Eating, Berardi backtracks a bit from the almost complete segregation his first article seemed to advocate. Low-GI carbs are fine to have in moderation with a high-fat and high-protein meal, which opens up some more options for increasing the calories in your breakfast.
