How does boiled egg whites sound for a last meal when you are on a cutting diet?

Planning on having 3 egg whites.

It's a good idea. But depending on how your other meals are setup. You might be eating a whole lot off egg whites to the amount of protein you're looking for.

There is about 3.5 grams of protein per egg white (large egg).

Egg Whites are good. But at a grand total of about 50 calories you may want to eat a little more. :cool:

One large whole egg is around 6 gram of protein.

Each egg white doesn't contain much protein, but it adds up. You figure you eat 6 scrambled egg whites, which isn't much at all, and you've got 24 grams of protein plus a glass of milk and you've got enough protein for one meal.

Ya, but do you get 8 grams of protein in two pieces of gum? ;)

lol...yes...you have a point. :) I meant more like, 50 cals is nothing. And why have 8g if you can have 24? :)

eat some whole eggs! The fat is good for you, the cholesterol supports test production and will be slowly digested over the night.

the doc; what about if you were to eat say 4 whole eggs per day. do you think the cholesterol would then become a factor?

quite honestly it is dependent on your genetics. I myself can eat very large amounts of cholesterol and still maintain very low serum levels. ALso, eating eggs may raise your cholesterol but also give a substantial increase in HDL (which can be good).

You would really need to be tested before and after eating eggs

your body reacts to cholesterol intake by producing less of it's own, but if you're taking in a bucket load like most of the fatasses in the UK or america who think exercises are what priests do to get rid of bad spirits, then your serum levels will rocket.

if your family has a long line of high cholesterol or heart disease then you may want to be weary.

leave your gay boyfriend's balls alone.

:p

oh and, I eat 4 eggs a day and I'm fine. At least for now....:)

But I really think its important to look at genetics and predisposition.
