I have recently started to eat hard boiled eggs on my way out the door in the morning. Three to be precise in addition to a banana and some oats.

Question about the egg is: Where does all the good protein lie - white or yolk? I don't really like the taste of the yolk so recently I have just been eating the 3 whites. Anyone know?

The white is the protein. The yolk has a little protein but it is mostly fat.

IMO 6 or 7 whites to one yolk makes a good omelet.

From what I understand, there's a close to equal amount in both.

in your average egg i think there's three grams of protein in the white and three in the yolk. Usually i'll eat about six whites and one yolk.

I do believe you are correct. I usually eat 3 whole eggs and 3-4 whites.

Saturated fats are important. Can hepl raise testosterone. Good source for saturated fats is in egg yolks.

i don't see how people don't like the yolk...as long as u don't think about what the yolk actually is...it is the best part of the egg..and fresh warm hardboiled eggs are the best...

Hard boiled are good in salads. I'm a big fan of somewhat soft boiled eggs (hard whites, soft yolk). Yummmm....

I prefer mine with a bit of salt sprinkled on top. Yummy yummy... or fried sunny side up to the point of whites being solid and yolks being runny. Yummmmmmy again.

Question: Who doesn't like eggs? (besides people who are allergic?)
