I have been training for a year now. Just wondering.. is eating 4 eggs whites and 1 whole egg RAW combined with milk (milkshake) give the same protein values if I was to cook or boil them.. I have this for breakfast several times a week?

No. You need to heat them to denature the glycoprotein avidin in the egg white digestible.

It's not a good idea for reasons of food safety either (salmonella).

So.. what its not giving the same (g) of protein compared to cooking them, ie frying or boiling..?

do u just not like cooked eggs? cuz i love them....but yes i think Gimp is saying that without cookin them the egg white protein is not digestible by the body thus rendering it useless...personally i agree with him...and i've only heard of this raw egg drinking from like Rocky....haha
