Does anyone here consume raw eggs in large amounts? Wanted to see what you guys think... I started today and swallowed 4 raw and cooked up to 5 ... I want to try more but is it beneficial?

don't do it. Tastes like hell and you only absorb half as much of the protein as when they're cooked.

Make yourself an omelette with some spinach, sausage (something Spanish works particularly well, chorizo for example) and cheese. Life's too short to torture yourself with raw eggs.

If I'm in a hurry, I'll eat raw eggs. It's rare to get tainted eggs but there is a real risk. They're not as awful as Robert says.

surely a protein shake is the superior choice in that situation?

I did a lot of reading about this. I would say the best way to eat eggs is to boil them. I usually boil about 10 eggs at a time so i will last a few days with them. I also put some egg whites into my soups. Now days it will be very rare in most countries to fall ill from salmonella so i would not worry about that. Boiling is the best way because you do not have to use anything else(Oil,salt etc.) for them to be tasty.
