Egg White - Fitness Fan

So we have previously spoken about eggs, but we feel we need to go deeper into explaining what the difference between eggs and eggs white.

An egg is one of the most versatile foods available and is valuable role in providing a healthy diet for all and especially bodybuilders, gym goers and those taking part in activity. 

 A whole egg contains about 6 grams of high quality protein.

  • 3g approx in the yolk
  • 3g approx in the white

Before you go on to say what about the egg fat they contain?

The white part of the egg contains no fat what so ever, on the other hand, the yolk of an egg (yellow) contains about 5 grams of fat BUT only a small proportion of this is saturated fat (Bad Fat) – about 1.6 grams.

So bodybuilders who are seeking to bulk up muscle,  are in particular need for fat in foods at a time when they have high-energy requirements for growth but limited appetites.

Eggs however, do contain cholesterol but it is generally accepted that dietary cholesterol does not raise blood cholesterol levels. Eggs are easily digested and are  useful in ensuring a balanced diet!

Liquid egg white can be found in carterns and can be easily bought online, in supermarkets.
