    I recently started a new job and I dont have access to a fridge/cooking equipment. Its bag and box lunches all the way. Since I dont feel like eating cold chicken all the time I was considering makeing my diet staple eggs.

    Is this a good or bad idea? Lets say I eat 5 hard boiled eggs for lunch everyday whats the calories going to look like?

    I already eat 5 for breakfast with a slice of toast. I looked on my egg cartons and there is no dietary info so any help would be great.

    I am thinking of just makeing it a nice dozen eggs that I eat everyday.
    IE 6 for breakfast w toast, 6 for lunch, baked chicken/tuna/salad something like that for dinner.

    CLIFFS : how many calories are in a egg with yolk, and without yolk if at all possible.

    I did a quick google and found this does it appear accurate to all you f&ners?

    Egg White 17 calories

    Egg Yolk 59 calories

    Fried Egg 92 calories

    Hard-Boiled Egg 76 calories

    Poached Egg 76 calories

    Scrambled Egg 100 calories (includes addition of milk in recipe)

    Yeah but believe it or not, whenever you cook eggs, the amount of calories increases very very slightly

    you're only eating 2.5 doz per week, and you're talking about eating 7 doz per week. HUGE difference. other than salmonella, which I doubt you'll get, I don't see what could be wrong with it

    I give him a week before eggs make him sick, 7 dozens is too much, that can't be healthy.

    I say suck it up and eat your cold grilled chicken sandwich and other cold foods.

    alright, so I should get tons of protien a day... do lots of cardio and some shit with freeweights (still need an answer to my question in my other thread) and I'll be loosing weight fast?

    What about carbs? Should I try eating as little as I can or what?

    :uh: you're a long ways off from losing weight fast my friend...first spend a few days in the archives reading about weight gain weight loss and working out and cardio and nutritional facts, diets, etc.

    im concerned with my food going bad sitting in 100 degree weather for 6 hours rather than the protein i am getting.

    OT: how many workers? dunno there but here if the company has over 10 workers they need to supply a good eating/heating/fridge room, maybe you all should ask for at least a fridge and a microwave. Even hard boiled eggs can go bad after 6 hours on 100 degree weather.

    I think you should rotate them with another 5-6 different meals, cold sandwiches, cold salads or take in consideration not carrying your own food but eating in a nearby restaurant/dinner....:hs:

    edit: 5 dozens per week is still too much
