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.
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.

i usually have eggs (including the yolk) for lunch a few times a week. yesterday i had three large eggs. 1 for lunch and then i made egg salad for me for dinner out of two that cracked when i was boiling them for the kids to color.
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.
