Just like the title asks......
3 whole eggs, 1 white, 2/3c oats, 2 tbsp natural peanut butter ( mixed, I love it!)
2 whole eggs, one white, handfull of baked potato cubes from last night and a ton of spinach all cooked together

Same breakfast I always have:
omelet made with 1 whole egg, 1/2 cup egg whites, 1 slice ff swiss cheese; 1 slice of ezekiel bread toasted with 1/2 Tbsp almond butter; 1/4 grapefruit
I know the slice of processed fat free cheese isn't clean but I DON'T CARE! It melts better than the real cheese and I love my breakfast just the way it is.
Oh yeah and coffee
4 egg whites with chopped spinach, salsa & pinch of 2% cheese & a bowl of oatmeal with truvia, PB2 & cinnamon with water to drink. YUM!

15 yr - not sure if you are a peanut butter fan, but throw a tbsp of it in your chocolate myoplex...MUCH BETTER!
BDMom - glad to see you apart of the discussion and that I'm not on the ignore list :)
Cream of wheat, protein powder, pb2 and flaxseed! Oh and coffee...
Anything to help my fellow BFLers.....
awww, I'm flattered.
Most days I have three egg whites + one whole egg, scrambled. What I have with it varies. Today I had a whole wheat bagel thin with my husband's famous no-sugar-added apple butter. Other days it might be toasted Pepperidge Farm ultra thin wheat bread, hash browns, oatmeal or Malto-meal, depending on what sounds good and how much time is available. I also like to add sauteed mushrooms, onions and peppers to my eggs, or have salsa with them.
Plus two cups of water, naturally.
Want it. Plan it. Do it.
Oatmeal mixed with chocolate protein powder and almonds on top...yum, yum...
Great Question...This morning I had 4 egg whites with flax seed and plain oatmeal. 2 glasses of water
I'm addicted to egg whites! Yummy..
eat whole eggs. white are an incomplete protein.
Egg whites have a lot of benefits, minus all the fats & cholesterol. I will throw one in once in awhile, but usually just eat the whites. For those looking to lose fat, they should limit the amount of egg yolks they eat. Factoring in my protein pancakes, there are days, I eat 9-12 egg whites, and I guarantee if I ate all those yolks, my bloodwork would show it, and so would my waistline.
stop commenting on what you do not know about. The fat in egg yolks raises your good cholesterol. Lowers bad cholesterol. Cholesterol is not a disease. If you restrict fatty acids from the body you force your body to make more cholesterol. You will also decrease your testosterone levels by restricting fat.
And as we all know, or should, if testosterone is not high enough you can say goodbye to any muscle growth. This is why bb'ers use anabolics, to raise test levels beyond natural limits.
The reason why you stay lean is because by throwing out your egg yolks you are cutting calories and as we all know fat is 9 calories per gram. So by eating at a deficit you are able to lose body fat. By eating at maintenance you are able to stay at the level you desire.
Also from a hormonal standpoint the only hormone that can cause fat storage is insulin. And the only way insulin is released is from carbohydrate. Carbs are not bad for you, that's not what I am saying. Tons of people follow ketogenic diets whether their choice or from a dr's orders and their blood work is perfectly healthy. The common denominator is that keto or non keto diets are avoiding bleached carbs, ie refined sugars.
I can guarantee you that if you ate your egg yolks, you would not have unhealthy blood levels, your waistline would not increase and you might actually feel better because fat is ESSENTIAL to the body. Why would you not gain body fat? Because it is all about energy balance. As long as you are not eating in a caloric surplus, you will not gain body fat. It's about the energy balance, not egg yolks.
Now egg yolks if eaten in an absurd amount can surely drive up your calorie count, which could lead to stored fat.
Bottom line. Eat your whites if you like em, but before you hand out your "Advice", understand how the body works with different macros hormonally. I mean seriously, you gonna tell someone they are fat because they eat egg yolks?
I know you are going to hate me after I read this, I just cannot let someone plaster false information and lead someone to believe it is true.
And for the record. Protein and Fat are essential. Meaning they must be consumed through the diet.
There is absolutely ZERO need for carbohydrates. They body can build muscle and metabolize fat without ever digesting a carbohydrate.
I don't advocate not eating carbs, I however do advocate educating yourself before you hand out misinformation.
