Eggs are a good, calorically (whatever is the opposite of dense), source of protein. The dietary cholesterol has a limited to nonexistent effect on serum cholesterol, so that isn't much of a concern. Other people will point to the saturated fat, but it is still unclear whether saturated fat intake is associated with cardiovascular disease, and even if it is, the egg likely has enough "good" fats (poly and monounsaturated) to outweigh any adverse the saturated may have on...
Eggs are good for you, including the yolk. Dietary cholesterol has almost no correlation to blood cholesterol, and theconnection between saturated fat consumption and heart disease is still up in the air. It's a good source of protein, and seems pretty filling. Do it.
I bought one for my wedding, but the only times I can think of wearing them are 1) other people's weddings, and 2) I've wanted to go to a black tie opening gala for the chicago auto show for a bit now.

I used to have terrible posture, but I think deadlifts (and maybe squats) have forced me into good posture. My fiancee teases me about standing too straight.
Anecdotally, higher carbohydrate intake can cause bloating.

I don't think this is right, as a general statement (unless you are referring to the high protein with intermittent carb loading diets some use in cutting, as discussed by Lyle Mcdonald). It's tough to put on muscle on a ketogenic diet (or at least tougher than on a non-ketogenic diet).

Yeah. My fiancee was a bit hesitant about my "let the groomsmen wear what they want as long as it's black tie" plan, but I'm not going to make two of my groomsmen rent a crappy tux when they already own one.

Though it's likely most efficicient to get at least the 100-120 grams of carbs a day needed for brain function. Otherwise, those carbs have to be created through gluconeogenesis.
