    Is 4 whole eggs a day bad?

    Hey all, i was wondering if eating 4 whole eggs a day for 6 days a week is gonna be bad for me. I just need alot of protein so i started eating whole eggs instead of egg whites.
    Thanks alot

    well if u need a lot of protein ... just eat more of the egg whites than 6 whole eggs .. eat 8 or 9 egg whites a day rather than 6 whole eggs .... i usually eat 8 egg whites in the mornin if i don't go with the 2 scoops of whey protein ! eatin egg whites at night with cottage cheese is great too at night ... everyone says so :d

    the studies i've read indicate no, with a possible inverse correlation with your cholesterol levels (ie, eating eggs every day may actually cause your blood cholesterol levels to decrease). ill try to find them and post them.

    eggs are a very healthy source of calories. if they fit into your macronutrient breakdown, then by all means eat them. 4 a day seems like the limit, as there is significant amounts of cholestoral and some saturated fats, you may opt for flax/olive oil or natty pb + egg whites as a better source of protein/fats, but 3-4 whole eggs seems fine

    I'm sure you already knew that an egg is the only food that combines every protein nutrient. Wow, i hear you all mumble :-)

    Variety is important when it comes to diet. Why not try other sources of protein like red meat, nuts, beans etc

    Consuming the yolk of the egg (in that amount) can be quiet bad if you have issues with cholestrol (check you family history and doc for that)...

    eggs are the best protein source next to mothers milk.

    I eat 15 egg whites and 3 whole eggs daily.

    I must agree with you there....

    Eggs are a great source of protein - I can't deny that...

    But being a chic, on her way to getting leaner - i WISH i could have 3 whole eggs a day! Even one a day is pushing it for me...

    But they are certainly served to me on my treat day....*yes, i have a treat day, but its not all that bad*

    I've honestly never tried - having them alone. But what do you do with them? Drink them? Cook them?

    I know that i used to always leave the white of the egg uneaten when i was a kid.....

    One other question - i'm new to the forum. Can you explain to me what a 'sticky' is?

    At the top of each forum. Or category you'll see a thread labeled "sticky" it means that it will always stay on top.

    Usually stickies are formed becuase of an announcment from mod/administrator. Or a thread stickied from popular demand.


    Do Not drink the eggs raw. Firstly they taste like ass. haha. Secondly your body isn't equipped with the digestive enzymes to break down the raw egg albumen. So your only digesting say... 30% of the eggs protein? Also.. raw egg albumen actually binds itself with bioten. Preventing your body from using that type of protein. Just cook them so you can enjoy the taste and take advantage of its nutritious goodness.

    Me personally... I cook 'em in a microwave. and put 2 pieces of fat free cheese on it.

    Talking

    Cool - thanks for that i'll give it a go.

    It will be entertaining to watch me try and separate the egg - but i should be able to work it out.

    Year 9 Home Economics class covered that, i think

    hehe...

    its a pain in the ass. Especially at first.

    Basically I crack the shell on the bowl and drip out the whites. then open the shell and flop the yolk back and forth between the halves. Get into your routine and you'll get it done. Its a mess job btw...

    My friend told me that he makes the bull eye kind. And just cuts out the yolk. Much easier if you ask me. I would do that but I'm not aloud to use my sove
