egg whites international

Post by xshawnxearthx » Wed May 20, 2009 12:42 pm

anyone use em?
pros vs cons?

i'm doing pretty well with my diet, and i can't eat dairy so i'm trying to get as much i can without.

right now i'm getting all my protein from grilled chicken/turkey, eggs, natural peanut butter, cans of tuna fish, and some other odds and ends. this egg whites international stuff looks like i could maximize and still lose weight.

also, i'm 6'6" 350lbs, not sure of my bf%, but i'm a fat dude. what should i be doing as far as protein intake per day? trying to lose weight and pack on lean muscle.

There is no egg substitute that is as good as real eggs. Most of the nutrition is in the yolks so you should always be eating whole eggs. If you can find "Real" eggs instead of supermarket eggs, you will be better off.

I strongly disagree. As I said earlier, eat the whole egg, the yolk has most of the nutrients. I can't believe that this came from the same guy that just recommended butter and coconut oil.

I only said that because most people are disgusted by the middle part.

A good indication that you're eating enuogh eggs is the comments you get when you buy them. If people start saying "that's A LOT of eggs", you know your probably there.

I buy 30-35 eggs per week (depending on whether it's 10 or 12 per box) and it's not unusual to have them finished, and need to buy more by Wed/Thurs (i shop on a Sunday and normally a top up shopping on wed/thurs night). When I'm lazy in the k-word (just want quick and easy things to make), I end up having loads of eggs. At my worse I have 2 meals per day consisting of around 4-6 eggs per meal (depending on what else I put in it), so sometimes myegg intake per week is pretty extreme. right now i'm in the habbit of having eggs in the morning and eggs before bed, which mounts up. I'm only about 175lbs btw, but I perform well on a low carb diet so protein and fat is prefferably nice and high, loads of veggies too but the calories in veg is so low, you need loads to make a dent in your intake.

35 eggs a week! Bloody nora that's a serious egg addiction. I think you might want to talk to a proffessional. You'll end up robbing people's houses and using the cash to buy more eggs to feed your habit.

haha. It's not even that bad. You've just been influenced by society and common myths that go around.

I don't think it's all that uncommon for guys (who lift) to go through 2 dozen eggs per day to be honest. I mean 2 meals per day getting your protein from eggs is not a big deal when you eat over 6 meals per day. I actually find it hard to stop myself just making eggs for more meals per day, because they're so quick and easy to make. 10 minutes from when I walk in the k-word i'm sitting down to a big helping of eggs, often some meat, a little cheese usually and a couple of bits of veg. The only reason i stop myself eating more is because I think i need variety.

I'm hungry now. Going to tear up some animal flesh.

I eat 4 eggs for breakfast 5 days a week. I routinely go through 2 dozen eggs every week because I often use eggs in other recipes. Always whole eggs - I get locally-farmed free-range eggs here, and they aren't crazy-expensive but they aren't cheap, and I'm not wasting any part of them.
