    I've decided to switch over to egg whites. I eat eggs practically every morning but I'm not so sure ingesting all of that cholesterol and saturated fat is a good idea.

    With liquid egg whites, do they scramble like real eggs? Or are they all runny?

    They are tasteless.

    A few eggs a day won't kill you, Conne. It's the binge drinking, lack of exercise, and otherwise entirely shitty diet that will.

    1.) I have maybe a drink a week these days. 2.) I exercise several times a week. 3.) My diet is being improved by the day, as evidenced by my loss of 10 lbs. [​IMG]

    They scramble more or less alright, but the texture and flavor isn't really there. I like the hint of yolk Egg Beaters for that purpose, gives a little better overall experience.

    Then again, I eat whole eggs almost all the time. The fat helps you stay full longer, and the saturated fat hasn't been demonstrated to be a problem for healthy people (even if overweight).

    I was a bit worried about taste. Knowing me, I'll probably try them tomorrow and then go back to regular eggs. [​IMG]

    use them for an omelette. I do this almost every morning and it works very well when you can throw some peppers, meat or cheese in these.

    scrambling plain would be...meh.

    Do you eat sweets? Some people I know have dessert on a nightly basis. I can't really go a day without some sort of treat...a cookie or a brownie or a Snickers or whatever. I get nice and high after one of those. [​IMG]

    Dietary cholesterol isn't going to cause you an issue, especially if it's only 3-4 eggs a day. The saturated fat won't kill you either. Keep the yolks and cut out other junk. Egg whites make for a generally crappy breakfast and will probably leave you unsatisfied (and thus more likely to eat junk). If nothing else, keep 2 whole eggs and toss in a few yolks.

    I love them sunny side up. slightly runny. There is a certain taste to them.

    Egg yolks have some nutrients too, like choline.

    I don't think vigorous masturbation exactly counts as "exercise"...

    While in Texas I had a fried egg on top of a steak. It was a first for me. I broke the yolk and it sort of just seeped in through the pores of the meat. Decadent, but quite delicious.

    Unless you're trying to gain weight, stick with the whites. You can use 1 egg yolk for flavor, if you like, and you won't really suffer for it - but I personally don't because i enjoy the convenience of using only boxed egg whites. To add flavor to your egg recipes use a pinch of salt or spices. Terragon is great with eggs. Cook them slower to get more fluffiness if that's what you're after (low heat, will take 10-15 min to scramble). Throw a bunch of salsa on top of them - I like to keep a few flavors around. Salsa is low calorie and provides some of the healthy goodness of vegetables (usually mostly tomatoes). Watch out for added sugars in your salsas, however. I wouldn't be surprised if some cheaper brands have these and worse.
