We can eat them every day, but then your not eating varied like most experts recommend.. Food rotation also avoid plateaus, our stomach is a intelligent muscle..
Give it the same thing every day, it find out a level it can workout out and thus steady state..
In short vary your food if you want keep lossing weight..
Now I am on maintenance I am working on a planned stable steady state with no huge weight swings.. I can allow the body to get a little less sharp dropping weight.. But then when I need to work I can intro stuff it ain't had in a while and wham no problems reducing my weight.. It gets the shock of its life having to process something I have not eaten for ages.. This is how my body reacts on maintenance..

I think it is a healthful choice. Whenever I need to use eggs in a recipe, I always try to use one yolk and the rest eggy whites.

Most people say you should limit the amount of eggs you eat because the yolk is high in cholesterol. However, the whites have no cholesterol. They have a low calorie density, you would have to eat an awful lot to eat too many.

I egg whites almost everyday! I usually mix spinach, egg whites, turkey ham, almond milk, and salsa and make an omlette everyday with a side order of pinto beans or low-fat cottage cheese! Good Luck!

Egg whites are one of the best protein sources out there. :) My husband did develop a slight intolerance of eggs after eating them every day for years, but as long as your body doesn't object to it, I think egg whites are great.

Nopes, egg whites are the low cal/low cholesteral part! Enjoy!

Thats what i thought. I just wanted to be sure. Thanks for your responses. It really helps to get others opinions. I couldn't make these healthier choices without all your help. Really.. i have no clue what i'm doing. I just add my foods to the tracker and go by what it tells me. I just ate 1/8 a cup of dried fruit and it was so sweet it made me sick. I had a sugar rush and a headache, but the serving i ate had only 13g of sugar. I'm never eating that again. I have drank a whole soda before without any problems.

I read here on Sparkpeople that it wouldn't be bad to enjoy an entire egg every day and that it would be healthy. I would assume if it were just the whites that 2-3 would be fine.

Egg whites are a source of protein, and have almost nothing else in them! I love them, too. I'm not sure if it's bad to eat too many, but I can't imagine that you're hurting yourself with a few a day. It's the yolk that you need to be careful about! :)

I know that too much of anything is bad for you, but i love egg whites. I boil the eggs and separate the yolk. I also eat chicken or fish everyday. If i don't eat fish, i will eat a tuna sandwich about once a week. I am trying to cut back on sodium and egg whites is something that i always have here that i am assuming is healthy for you. I would eat more everyday, but i wanted to ask first if there is a limit to how many you should eat. I know i need to eat a balance of all foods and i'm not saying my whole day would consist of egg whites, but i love them. :)
