don't deprive yourself of the delicious and nutritious egg yolk. i eat 2 eggs with breakfast almost every day (if i don't, it's usually because i need to go grocery shopping). it's probably my favorite part of the day.

about 4-6 whole eggs per week, i eat 1-2 for breakfast on my non-yogurt days. on occassion i'll include a hard boiled egg in a lunch salad. not too often I eat them at dinner....
Goal 1 - break 200 (46 pounds lost)**DONE** Goal 2 - leave obesity behind (BMI 29.9, at 185#) **DONE** Goal 3 - BMI = Normal (154# or less)
I have eggs a few times a week. BTW--consider eating the whole egg, not just the white. There are nutrients in the yolk that aren't in the whites.

about 8 eggs a week, good source of protein, sprinkle on black pepper and celery seed, nice addition to salad, with kale , romaine, and spinach, and fat free dressing

3 egg whites have 50 calories and 11 grams of protein. Not sure where your friend is getting her information, but that's not a lot of protein.

I don't think it matters if it is animal protein or a different kind of protein so long as you are within your protein and fat goals. Maybe your friend has a cholesterol prob and that is their reasoning? When I do eat eggs I have 2 whole eggs. And that is usually not the only animal protein I have throughout the day.
