    Is there something wrong with the yolk? I know the whites is much higher in protein, but since your trying to bulk up, there is no point throwing out the yolk, its still got protein in it.

    i think dietary cholesterol doesn't really matter...i eat the whole eggs, i tried doing like 6 whites 2 yolks but i just got lazy now i eat 4 whole eggs every morning along with a protein shake with milk :hsd: plus there's a lotta good nutrition in the yolk. if you are watching your fat intake maybe cut out a few yolks but other than that i think theyre good for u

    Yeah, I pretty much just do it for the cholesterol. Each yolk contains about 75% of your daily intake so throwing in 6 yolks doesn't really seem good to me. I usually throw in one yolk for good measure (I actually just had 7 egg whites, 1 yolk like 10 mins ago).

    People worried about cholesterol.... i honestly don't think the three eggs and cup of ground beef i eat a day is going to have a significant impact on my health.

    2 whole, 2 whites because 4 whole eggs is just a little to much fat for me.

    I eat them (and whole eggs too) because egg whites are almost 100% protien and low low calorie.
