Good Egg

How do you like yours in the morning? A simple egg white omelet ranks just below the classic bro dish of chicken and broccoli in a staple bodybuilder’s diet, but is discarding the yolk all it’s cracked up to be?

Egg Whites

NUTRIENTS: Fewer calories and micronutrients, plus lower in protein, cholesterol, fat, vitamins and minerals

PROTEIN: Packs around 67% of all the protein found in eggs

WAISTLINE: Could make you feel fuller for longer

HEALTH: Good source of riboflavin and selenium needed for healthy joints, heart and eyes

FATS: Almost pure protein and contains no fat or cholesterol

Whole Eggs

NUTRIENTS: Contains a wide range of vitamins, minerals, extra protein, and some healthy fats

PROTEIN: Provides a complete protein, meaning it contains all nine essential amino acids

WAISTLINE: Helpful for lowering weight, BMI, and waist circumference

HEALTH: A rich source of lutein and zeaxanthin – which help prevent eye degeneration and cataracts

FATS: All of the cholesterol and fat in eggs is found in the yolk

WINNER: Whole eggs

There’s no denying that for the calorie spend, egg whites are hard to beat for delivering a high protein count. For super-strict cutting requirements, white is right. For overall health benefits however, yolk is where it’s at if you want a protein powerhouse that provides all nine essential amino acids with a healthy dose of vitamins and minerals. If it’s good enough for Arnie, it’s good enough for us!
