    My dad just tried telling me that egg whites are bad for you because they have no protein and most of the protein comes from the yolk. I was like:rofl: :ugh:, so which do you guys eat?

    every morning, 1x8oz container of egg whites. I'd eat 16oz, but that shit is pricey.

    egg whites aren't bad for you
    eggs aren't bad for you
    protein isn't bad for you
    creatine isn't bad for you

    listening to your dad, however, IS bad for you

    Yeah, if im going to eat eggs I figure I might as well not throw away the Yolk... I kind of like them anyway, it seems wierd to only eat the whites to me but apparently the yolks must be bad for you or something :squint:

    I have never even seen egg whites for sale without a yolk before, but then again I probably havent looked in the right place its probably some dehydrated shit for all I know.

    everyday i put 2 or 3 whole jumbo eggs in my shake, and i have that shake twice per day, sometimes i eat eggs cooked, and i never EVER separate my yolks, i dont see why someone wouldnt eat them unless trying to eat under maintenance to lose weight.

    They are mindless sheeple who falsely believe that egg yolk is going to drive up their cholesterol levels.

    no, I think it's probably more due to the fat levels, when I eat eggs I eat 12-16, some people probably don't want that much fat

    I'm talking about the general public. They rant about how eggs & egg yolks are bad because the media says it's bad for your cholesterol... half of them don't even know about the fat content. (some) F&N people are a different story. I usually do 50/50 when cutting, just so I can keep my calories down a bit more.

    I think the average egg yolk contains about 5grams of fat, so they are quite unhealthy if you eat say 10 in one sitting, i've started eating for breakfast 8 eggs with 5 yolks removed, I prefer the taste but i hate the waste of food
