if you bulking, DEFFINATLY eat the whole egg, if your cutting, same. If you really want to use egg whites which are good also, just cook em up in the pan like scrambled, there nice that way

Yeah, but isn't the yolk bad for you?

Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone ever made French Toast with egg whites?

Egg yolks are one of the best food in the world. It just sucks that so many people shunned it because of the stupid cholesterol scare. It is extremely rich in fat soluble nutrients and in a ton of other stuff good for your nervous system.

As I recall, sat. fat has more to do with your body's production of cholesterol, than what most people ever take in.

Also, what fat soluable vitamins are in yolks?

Egg yolks have all of the vitamin A, D and E in the egg. Dietary cholesterol doesn't have nearly as much of an impact on your blood cholesterol levels as saturated fat does.

i've even seen a study that showed the lecithin in egg whites counteracts the body's ability to absorb some of the cholesterol in egg yolks...further enforcing that egg yolks ain't bad for ya!

8 egg whites should only be around 130-160 calories. If that is enough or not enough for breakfast depends on you.

so in eating eggs your looking to get more of the vitamins than anything.. protein wise their not all that abundant.

Eggs are great, but personally they just aren't calorie dense enough for me to include them in a bulking diet. At least not on a regular basis. I might have some for breakfast on occasion. I like my scrambled-but it's a lot of preparation for only a few hundred calories.

Usually while bulking I'll have the whole egg. While cutting, I almost always only have the whites.

A regular egg is about 70 calories, 6g protein and 5g fat.

The white itself contains about 4g of protein and none of the fat.

If you make your omelette with enough meat & cheese, you're good to go on ~800-1000 cals.

Eh. Take a big carton of egg beaters (One of the 15 serving ones), pour the whole thing into a pan, let it sit, throw in some pesto, cheese, and sliced chicken, fold twice, serve. You've got a 600 calorie breakfast with around 150 grams of protein.

Which is really completely unnecessary, but you could totally clear an entire room with the gas you'll get. That's worth it right there.
