    Question What does Drinking RAW EGGS do?

    Doies drinking RAW EGGS just give you More Energy, or does it actually BUILD_U_UP.
    I heard that mostly all Protein Powders are made-up of eggs. is that true?
    Also how much do you drink?

    Help Needed......

    Cant say i ever drank raw eggs, but from what I'v read in nutrition guides eggs are very high carb, carbs being what fuels your muscles.

    As for protein shakes, all the ones ive drank say their made primarally from whey, but these are fairly high calorie and I'm guessing are only for ppl who have an intense workout scheduale. The shakes build u up sure (from my experience anyways), combined with weights, but im currently having other issues with them related to the number of calories and burning fat while building muscle.

    Drinking raw eggs , erghhhh wouldnt want to try, sounds gross, wouldnt cooking them first taste better? LOL

    Eggs are a very good source of protein, fat and some good carbs. They have been called the perfect food, since they are intended to completely sustain a chicken embryo from conception to hatchling. Cooking an egg destroys some of the nutritional value. The only problem with eating eggs raw is SALMONELA, a deadly bacteria found in chicken droppings and often transferred to the eggs as they are layed. If you are going to eat raw eggs, only eat those with uncracked shells and wash them with an anti-bacterial soap before cracking them open. You can blend them in a blender mixed with milk, cream, fruit, yogurt, etc. if you can't stomach the texture and/or taste of raw egg.

    IMO, too much of a risk. egg protein powder would be a better substitute

    A nutritionist I used to work with once told me that your body absorbs the protein in the egg better when it is cooked vs raw....

    Besides, I couldn't eat a raw egg anyway

    guys i did once try a raw egg...but it was a fresh one from a hen...nice and warm mmmm...

    You can also half boil them...break it in a saucer and a pinch of salt and gulp it down...it does taste good!

    anyways back on topic...aren't the yolk high in cholestrol (sp ?). I usually boil about 3/4 eggs and just eat the white, either throw away the yolk or eat it one or two sometimes.

    Why would eating choleserol be a bad thing? This is one of the worst old wives tales being perpetuated today. Dietary cholesterol (that is cholesterol in foods you eat) has NO effect on serum cholesterol (cholesterol in your blood) levels. Dietary cholesterol is broken down into its component parts in the human digestive tract and absorbed as other nutrients. Serum cholesterol is manufactured in your body from other nutrients. High levels of bad cholesterol is caused by eating too much fat, eating too little fiber, carrying too much body fat, getting too little exercise, heredity, etc.

    Personal trainers often don't know jack. Most of them have no qualifications whatsoever. However, having said that, the question of cholesterol in the diet is debatable. I would suggest not overdoing it by eating insane amounts,but certainly don't worry about it, either. Do what feels right for you..if your cholesterol levels skyrocket, then settle down a bit,heh heh.

    1 egg yolk per day max...the thing is the fat in the yolk is saturated and you want to minimize that as much as possible in your diet

    Eggs are high in cholesterol. Limit your intake of them if you have a family history of heart disease.

    Raw Rocks!

    I am a proponent of the Cave Man Diet, or Paleolithic Diet. The theory is that we should eat what our body was designed to eat, or what we evolved to eat. Grains, bread, beans, beef, milk and processed junk have all been introduced in our recent history.

    Agriculture vs Hunting/Gathering. The majority of our health problems have been traced to eating wrong. Everything from ADHD, depression, MS, MD, heart disease, cancer, you name it, are all caused by wrong food, and are healed by right food. (there's a ton of pollutants we are exposed to, but that's a different subject).

    Eating cooked food has come so late in our development that we have not (yet) evolved, or quite adapted to digest it fully.

    I eat everything raw: veggies, nuts, even steak, fish and chicken. It's the same concept as going overseas: eating the local fair and getting sick ... you don't have the same bacteria in your belly that the locals do.

    I eat stuff everyday that would give you diarrhea. Those same bacteria are what boost my imune system. Humans have been eating rotting flesh since the beginning. Some bacteria is a good thing.

    I drink a dozen raw eggs a day. I love 'em! Cooking alters the molecular structures of fat, carbs & proteins. I get the best assimilated proteins, natural, pure ... just the way God intended.

    Fact: about 1 in every 30,000 eggs in the U.S. has Salmonella. That's a 0.00003 chance of getting it. The health benefits of raw WAY outwiegh the risk of getting Sal. And, if you do get that one bad egg, just don't eat it ... you can tell a bad egg by its smell and liquidity.

    There's a TON of benefits to eating raw. There are sites that explain how the nutrients in a raw egg are far superior than a damaged cooked one. Google "paleolithic diet" "raw egg."

    The FDA Food Triangle says we should eat mostly grains and like 55 gms of protein per day. The human body actually functions best with No grains, no beans, no milk, and with 318 grams of protein a day.

    I've never had a problem bulking-up. Protein Powders? ... expensive processed junk made of milk. I drank milk my whole life. When I quit, I suddenly lost my hayfever and pet allergies. Come to find-out, it was milk and wheat that were making me succeptable to things my body should've been able to handle.

    Just one thing: if you try raw eggs, you should start with half a teaspoon the first day, a whole teaspoon the next, etc. This will gradually build the good bacteria in your belly.

    I did have a touch of diarreah in the beginning, but nothing major. There's gonna be an adjustment period.

    I have started to get into this habbit of drinking raw eggs mixed with milk, and a lil bit of vanilla to give it spice up. But yeah its a great meal or before a work out. Now im wondering... How many eggs should i consume before i head out for a workout or after doing one. Im 16 by the way. Well right now i have started with 2 eggs, and milk that adds up 2 350 ml. Some input on how much i shoudl consume would be great and when i shoudl drink it would be great, im really trying to beef up.
