hello guys.i weigh 100kg at 6.1 ft.I need to take 180-200 gms of protein daily but i can only manage 150gms.I take 13 egg whites a day.I was thinking to increase my protein intake through eggs as they have high BV and are an affordable source of rich protein.But i read on internet that eating too many egg whites may cause hair loss.As AVIDIN in eggs counters the BIOTIN needed for other body functions related to hair and skin.What should i do?

Eat a cheeseburger instead.

Buy Rogain with your egg whites.

I personally have never heard about any correlation between eating eggs and hair loss, but of course that doesn't mean its not true.

My suggestion would be to not go overboard with any one food, but try to round it out. This is where many decide to make use a protein shake, but of course to each his/her own.

Pssst there's other excellent and affordable options for protein too but don't let the secret get out

Plenty of other sources of protein available. Chicken, fish, red meat, dairy, legumes etc. Don't limit to eggs. Keep a balanced diet.

Egg whites are great for making protein-merengue cookies (basically just protein power and egg whites with cream of tartar.)

Other than they are bland & flavorless. Would rather eat most anything else honestly.

150g of protein is more than enough. Take the extra 200 calories and eat some of the egg yolks you goof.
