Eggs.

Postby Snaplight » Thu Apr 28, 2016 9:47 am

How many Eggs you guys eating per day?

Do you feel they add something extra to your diet? But do you advocate caution on the amount eaten?

2 hard boiled. Not consistently and not for my diet. I eat them for recently grown a liking to them and they are a good source of protein. At least that is what I tell myself but I do eat things with them. Do you know I am known to drive and peal a hard-boiled egg at the same time? I got skills. :mozilla_cool:

1. None, minus the ones found in whatever is used to make danish pastries.

2. I doubt it. Choline maybe if you're deficient.

3. Depends, if you're diabetic or your lipid profile is terrible then maybe; the latter is influenced by a number of things beyond dietary cholesterol.

2 hard boiled on some non-training days for breakfast. I pan-fry 4 eggs occasionally on cheating Saturdays.
I don't think it adds anything specific to your diet. IF you are eating reasonably healthy.
I enjoy it and it remains me of my childhood :mozilla_smile:

I only use organic free range eggs.

Chickens from non-organic farms spend their entire lives couped up in 1' x 1' cages. Don't tell me this doesn't have an effect on their eggs.

Crack open a non-organic eggs and compare it with an organic egg. You'll see and taste a big difference.

You'll never go back to non-organic again.

10lbs of muscle in 8 weeks, that averages at 1.25lbs a week... Yeah I call bullshit on that one, guys pinning 600mg of test in conjunction with lifting only gained ~1.3lbs of FFM per week.

Most days i will eat 1 to 3 eggs, sometimes i would make a huge omlette of 8 or so.
Eggs are def a good food and offer great nutritional value, so have some if you like them.
As long as your blood lipid profile is ok you do not need to worry about colesterol.

4 eggs a day, everyday for breakfast. With a quick drink of OJ, psyllium husk and greens, and a coffee.

Normally semi-hard boiled or scrambled. I've been preferring scrambled lately. Been tempted to up it to 6 eggs because I've been getting hungry earlier, but I can't justify the cost, already go through too many eggs in my house.

Have you noticed any correlation between intake and strength? or you just eating them because they are healthy and filling.
