Someone help me!
Every morning for breakfast, I've been eating the two whole large eggs. Does anyone know if I should only be eating the egg whites? Does it make that much of a difference. I'm on the Turbo fire workout.
Thanks!

There's nothing wrong with eating the whole eggs if you have a balanced nutrition plan. Eating only the eggs whites will lower the number of calories, fat, and cholesterol but on the downside it cuts out some nutrients like vitamin b and d and iron. Whole eggs generally make you feel fuller longer also. When I eat eggs I usually eat a mixture of whole eggs and egg whites. Larry Shelton - EnduraFIT

Hi! Love TF! emoticon The whole egg isn't bad at all. It does contain the cholestrol and overall the egg will have more calories as whole vs just the egge whites. Are you following a meal plan?

Here's some quick info:


Serving Size
This nutritional information is based on a medium-size chicken egg weighing 44 grams, or about 1.5 ounces. It also assumes that the egg is uncooked, and no ingredients have been added.

Cholesterol
A medium egg contains 186 milligrams (mg) of cholesterol, almost all of which are in the yolk. This is 62 percent of the daily value (DV) of 300 mg for cholesterol.

Calories
A whole egg contains a total of 66 calories, of which 41 calories come from fat and 25 calories come from protein. The white contains 14 calories, all of which come from protein. No part of the egg is a significant source of carbohydrates.

Fat
An egg contains about 4.5 grams of fat, virtually all of which is in the yolk. Each gram of fat has 9 calories, so a serving of eggs contains 4.5 x 9 = 41 calories from fat. Saturated fats account for 1 g, and unsaturated fats account for the remaining 3.5 g.

Protein
An egg contains about 6.3 g of protein. Each gram of protein contains 4 calories, so a serving of eggs contains 6.3 x 4 = 25 calories from protein. The white contains 3.6 grams of protein, so the white from 1 egg has 3.6 x 4 = 14 calories from protein.

Cheers!
