Canadian bacon is very high in sodium. Nix that instead of the EggBeaters.

I use them a lot and particularly like the fact that they can be frozen and thawed. I buy the big box with six containers at Coatco so I always have them on hand. As I get low I just take another container out of the freezer and let it thaw in the fridge.

They're not a "natural" food. Have you treid using real egg whites yet? If you have, and you can't stand them, then okay, stick with the beaters.

And I could be wrong, but I think Canadian bacon would have more sodium than eggbeaters.

I like them, especially the "southwestern" kind. There are plenty of people on here that say they aren't the best for you, and that may be true, but if they help you to eat healthier and lose weight, then more power to you!

I use a combination of 1 real whole egg with "Simply Egg Whites".

If you like them eat them. I don't have the the brand name container to look at but my Kroger brand has 5% sodium per serving and that's not a huge amount.

they are great for the ease of use.

You can do as the PP suggested and just use the whites from eggs, they do make very fluffy scrambled eggs, but I always feel wasteful throwing out the yolk.

As long as the rest of your diet is low enough in sodium that you're not exceeding your daily intake, one higher-sodium meal probably won't interfere with weight loss. However, you could switch very easily to real egg whites - I find their texture is better, and it's actually less expensive (eggs are cheaper than egg beaters!) Plus, when I'm living with other people, it prevents us from buying double groceries - the people in the house who eat whole eggs have whole eggs, and I just use the whites without any added expense.

I have started eating egg beaters and I really enjoy them. I have a cup with red,yellow, orange bell pepers and onions. I then put a little salt, pepper and some salsa on them. I also have canadian bacon and either broccoli or another veggie last night it was fresh asparagus since they are in season. I have this for my dinner. It is really very tasty. My question is the sodium I am eating could it keep me from losing weight?
