Eating more calories than you burn is effective for growth.

One egg is a very minor detail. If you want to drink it, go ahead. If you want to sing to it and paint a dress on the shell before you crack it, go ahead.

I heard somewhere that "cooking egg whites takes the protein out of them!" so, that's why I thought people just drank them... like Rocky.
This isn't the case though, is it?

I heard somewhere that "cooking egg whites takes the protein out of them!"No, cooking them makes the protein more digestible. Burning them to a black crisp might ruin the protein, but I don't think you'd want to eat them after that anyway.

Doesnt taste that bad actually.. I would prefer to drink eggs with a protein shake.. But watch out, it can give u a stomach ache or cramps.. might be a little 2 much protein at one time..

^ i don't think it's about the protein, it's harder to digest, then cooking your eggs

Actually, cooking the egg will yield more digestible protein. If you are dead set on drinking it, make sure it is pasteurized (i.e. egg beaters, egg whites in the carton, etc.).

Cooking the egg makes the protein more digestible by increasing the range of pH in which it can be digested. http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/entrez/query.fcgi?cmd=Retrieve&db=pubmed&dopt=Abstract&list_uids=16019308&query_hl=1
Someone with normal or elevated stomach acidity won't see the difference in digestion.

Some people believe that what the cause egg protein allergies is the cooking that may slightly change the protein structure.

Raw egg whites can cause a biotin deficiency, because it contains something that bind with biotin. The egg yolk is a very good souce of biotin, so it's better to consume it whole, at least for that aspect.

Raw eggs are a source of n-acetyl-cystein, which is very good for the liver.

There is ~1/30 000 chances that the egg is contaminated with salmonella.
What I HEARD is that:
a) Salmonella is not dangerous for healthy people.
b) Only sick chicken will have salmonella in their eggs.
I'm not sure of this, but I think the bacteria is usualy present on the shell.
