I'm a vegetarian and I'm trying to lose weight and consume more protein. Are there benefits to eating a whole egg as compared to an egg white?

I'm a vegetarian and I'm trying to lose weight and consume more protein. Are there benefits to eating a whole egg as compared to an egg white?

Essential fatty acid: I assume you are an ovovegetarian from the nature of your question (strict vegetarians do not eat eggs). Whole egg is the egg white (protein) w/ the yolk, which is mostly cholesterol & fat. The benefits of the yolk are debated by nutritionists. Some believe it has essential (omega-3) fatty acids (EFA), vitamins A, D, &E, & short-chain fatty acids (SCFA) for digestion. Fish is also a good EFA source ...Read more

How my egg white should I eat after bodybuilding. I don't want to take any protein powder or something like that! Is milk helpful?

How about real food?: I agree protein powder is not recommended. After work out you need high protein and carbohydrate also. Egg white is good but why not double chicken breast sandwich since you seem to be trying to avoid cholesterol. Fish ok. On the egg white carton, you will find the amount of protein per serving and you can easily calculate your needs based on your weight. If have hi blood pressure weights r not 4u. ...Read more

Hi doctor. Can I eat mix powder of egg white powder, wheat germ powder, formula baby instead protein powder for volume muscle?

Sounds unpleasant...: To increase muscle mass you need to increase weights when you strength train. Adequate protein is important in your diet - but no concoction is going to give you the gains you want without you doing the work. I would suggest that lean meats would be a more appetizing way to meet the protein requirements. ...Read more

When you ovulate do you always see egg white mucus? Because I only saw it one time! So does that mean I don't ovulate every month?

When you ovulate do you always see egg white mucus? Because I only saw it one time! So does that mean I don't ovulate every month?

No: Cervical mucus is over-rated as a test of ovulation. It is variable between women and in the same woman month to month. It was helpful when there was nothing better but now we have ovulation prediction tests at the pharmacy without a prescription. This is a much better way to see if you are ovulating and when. Most women who are having menses the same time every month are ovulating. ...Read more

How can your cervical mucus go from egg white and stretchy one day before sex to pasty the next day after sex?

How can your cervical mucus go from egg white and stretchy one day before sex to pasty the next day after sex?

Hormone changes: Sex is not the cause. The hormones at midcycle cause the mucous to be egg white like. The mucous forms channels to help the sperm get to the egg. This goes along with ovulation. The progesterone after ovulation makes the mucous thick. ...Read more
