    Best amount of egg whites to eat and when?

    Just wondering how many egg whites I should eat a day, and when I should eat them. I usually have 1 cup of Better N' Eggs, as a scrambler or omelet, after I work out. Any suggestions?

    Thanks for the responses. What makes 8 such a magic number for egg whites? Just wondering. Shouldn't you take it easy on the egg yolks? Aren't those high in cholesterol?

    Eat as many as it takes to get your required grams of protein.
    I generally use half the yolks.

    So, instead of eating egg whites, I can be eating whole eggs and not even worry about it?

    Dumb question? A rather valid question, actually. Too many conflicting reports! Egg yolks are bad, egg yolks are good, blah, blah, blah! I'm about to eat the chicken while it's having the eggs!

    I get 100g of protein per day from egg white beaters... I'll throw in a real egg or 2 on lower-carb days. Eggs are the best source of protein out there.

    The reason there are so many conflicting reports is because people's bodies are very different. Eat eggs, whole eggs if you want the calories, get your cholosterol tested. Try to keep animal fats low, and a couple of months from now, get your cholestoral tested again.

    If you're looking for cheaper eggwhites in bulk, check out my thread here(http://www.wannabebigforums.com/showthread.php?t=77056). I am about to try the powdered form, which I think will go fine ( just add water ). Oh and by the way, I dont work for either of the companies listed in my thread. I was just searching for a cheaper alternative to buying them in the store. Hope that helps some people!

    I usually have an egg white omelet as my post-workout meal with some spinach, whole wheat bread, and a chocolate malt milkshake. So far, so good!
