Default Eggs in a cup - Rocky style

We all know the scene, where Rocky breaks several eggs into a cup and drinks them. Is this recommended? What nutrients are there in eggs? Does it make you sick? haha thanks

Smalls once advised me on this and ever since if I ever need a protein source (if I have no protein shakes for example) I get half a glass of milk and crack like 3/4 egg whites in, not the yolk though (because it gets dirty and tastes dirty) and knock it back so, yeah I've done it on and off for a year so no worries go for it.

The yolk gets dirty? Did you have to have it in a glass of milk or did that just help?:P thanks for the advice

I just mean like it gets messy IE: it sticks to your teeth and the glass, it also tastes ****ing rank. Basically half a glass of milk then crack 3/4 egg whites in, or if you want some flavour then add it to a yazhoo milkshake or something.

I do believe the yolk has most of the vitamins etc but for a quick protein fix I find it helpful, other people just think I'm a ****ing moron but hey lol.

The yolk has the fat, the white has the protein (in the form of albumin).

The idea is to do it for protein. If you track your macronutrients then you'll know if you're getting enough. There are easier and less disgusting ways of getting enough protein.

Eggs are high in leucine, the most important of the BCAAs.

i swear by raw egg whites when i'm putting on muscle.
whites are low in fat and they dont taste that bad - but if it bothers you just have a glass of water or milk afterwards

six in the morning, six before bed - costs a fortune!

I've done it for years because I don't eat a lot of meat and even buy the liquid egg whites from Myprotein now.
I'd go only one-third with the yolks though,although if you buy Omega3 eggs you could maybe go half and half full egg and whites.
I've read that eggs are one of the most complete food sources out there,but there are far better qualified people than me on ESB to tell you exactly what's what.

4 egg whites one whole egg and a tiny bit of milk it doesn't taste of anything and you get a lot from it. Surprised to see virus say its pointless.

Not sure how reliable this is, but it might help:

In the world of nutrition, few debates have remained as heated as the great egg debate. For nearly 40 years, researchers have tried to determine whether your omelets, scrambled eggs, and frittatas are actually healthy. The argument against has always revolved around two simple factors—eggs are high in fat and cholesterol. So it’d be easy to assume that removing the yolk (or avoiding eggs altogether) are part of any “get back in shape” diet plan. But a closer look at the research reveals that the real debate about eggs is why there was any question about their health benefits. In fact, a quick look at the most common myths shows that making eggs a standard part of your diet is one of the best decisions you can make.

Myth: Eggs make you fat
Truth: Eggs are a great food for weight loss

You may have heard that eating eggs will make you fat as 60 percent of the calories in eggs come from fat. However, eating fat doesn’t make you fat and eggs are a calorie-controlled food designed to maximize weight loss not prevent it. One egg is only 70 calories, with a great balance of 6 grams of protein and 5 grams of fat. The protein/fat combination of increases satiety hormones (the ones that tell your brain you are full). The protein in eggs also causes your body to release the hormone glucagon, which encourages your body to release and use stored carbohydrates and fat.

To prove the point, compare eggs to rice cakes—a timeless “diet” food. Two rice cakes also contain 70 calories, but with no protein or fat. Those calories come from 14 grams of high glycemic, fat-cell stuffing, refined carbohydrates, which makes it a much less desirable choice.

Myth: Eggs raise your cholesterol
Truth: Eggs don’t impact cholesterol levels

Reducing blood cholesterol levels has been a major public health mission for decades. It would make complete sense that if you wanted to decrease the amount of cholesterol in your blood stream then you should reduce the amount of cholesterol that you are eating. That’s why eggs have typically been touted as dangerous, as it contain approximately 200 mg per serving.

The problem: Dietary cholesterol doesn’t actually raise cholesterol as much as you might think. In fact, only 30 percent of people experience significant increases in cholesterol levels following a diet high in cholesterol. Researchers from Harvard looked at the dietary habits of more than 100,000 people and concluded that daily egg consumption in healthy individuals didn’t increase risk of coronary heart disease. What’s more, a study from the University of Connecticut found that eating 3 eggs per day as part of a low carbohydrate improved HDL (‘good’) cholesterol without any negative health effects.

Myth: You should only eat egg whites
Truth: Enjoy the entire egg (yolk included)

The ‘egg white only’ movement was birthed out of the mass movement to remove as much cholesterol and fat from the American diet as a way to fight heart disease and obesity. An egg white contains all protein (3.5 grams per egg); the rest of the nutrients, protein, and fat are hiding in the yolk, which means the yellow is the most nutritious part. Egg yolks contain 240mg of leucine, the amino acid single handedly responsible for flipping your genetic muscle building switch. But egg yolks are much more than just a muscle building nutrient. They also include choline (essential for cell membrane function), cholesterol (which serve as the molecular framework for multiple hormones in the body), vitamin A , vitamin D, and vitamin E. You can also get eggs that come from chickens who were fed omega-3 rich feed, the omega-3s in their feed enriches the omega-3 fats in the yolk, giving you as much as also contain 150mg of the long chain omega-3 fat DHA . Enjoy the entire egg to take advantage of all the nutritional benefits.

Myth: Eating raw eggs allows you access to more nutrients
Truth: Cook your eggs to ensure you access all the nutrients

Ever since Rocky chugged down raw eggs as part of his quest to beat Apollo Creed, the lore eating raw eggs has appealed to nutrition fanatics. However, research shows that the only thing you’ll gain from your Italian Stallion style of eating is are a list of health concerns—without the benefits. One touted benefit of raw eggs is that you’ll digest cholesterol in its unoxidized form. However, the oxidation of egg cholesterol during the cooking process is minimal (and reduced even further if you cook your eggs at a lower temperature). Eating raw eggs has also been recommended to prevent the degradation of health promoting lutein and zeaxanthin. However, research from the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition and Journal of Nutrition shows that eating cooked eggs leads to increases in blood lutein and zeaxanthin levels.

On the flip side, raw eggs contain a compound called avidin which binds and prevents the absorption of the essential nutrient biotin. Cooking eggs deactivates avidin, rendering it biochemically useless. And while only 1 in 10,000 eggs are contaminated with salmonella, properly cooking eggs will effectively kill any salmonella that is present—as well as significantly reduce the risk of any food-borne illness that might exist.

It turns out that a huge benefit of taking a couple eggs first thing in the morning is that it keeps your metabolism high for the rest of the day, thus making it easier to burn fat and keep the weight off.

30g of protein within 30 min of waking up does the trick. People who don't eat in the morning go into perceived starvation mode which lowers the body's metabolic rate making it retain as much carbs from your daily intake as it can, rather than burning it up.

You could substitute bacon, meat or whatever, but the weight loss from the higher metabolism far outweighs the 30g you're taking in, which is the equivalent of a couple of eggs.
