    raw eggs

    Who here eats raw eggs? I have been averaging 20+ raw egg whites a day for the past year. I have never gotten sick. I have recently heard that this is very bad for your health. Thoughts??? I have also heard that blending and cooking your egg whites denatures the protien, specifically Avadin????????

    I don't understand why people have 20 egg whites per day. Roughly 6 grams of protein per egg x 20 = 120

    If you are having a total of 250 grams of protein a day, you are getting half of that from egg protein!!!! Where is the room for lean red meat, poultry, rice and other solid food that you won't crap out quickly. Absorption will be reduced having it all from the same protein.

    jesus christ not another raw egg thread

    Keep in mind you only absorb 50% of the protein in eggs when they are raw. So you are wasting half of it and risking salmonella. Cook em.

    Rice ain't protein, and I don't understand why absorption will be reduced by eating the same protein. That doesn't matter. At times I'll eat steak 6 times per day before a show, and that does nothing to hinder absorption. It's all in the way you measure your amounts per meal that dictate what will be absorbed.


    On another note, COOKING eggs/whites makes them MORE BIO-AVAILABLE, so you get more of the actual product absorbed/utilized when you COOK THEM.

    Hmm, rice contains no protein at all? I also believed it contained a lot of carbs and protein with no fat

    As for the absorption thing, I was getting at this. Certain foods contain certains proteins, certain proteins contain certain amino acid chains. Amino acid chains contain individual types of amino acid. If your body is absorbing loads of one type of amino acid across the intestinal wall into the blood, that creates a high concentration there which hinders further absorption of that same amino acid.

    However having said that, I have realised it is pure BS because all products of digestion are absorbed by active transport against the concentration gradient and are immediately whisked away by the mesentary veins. Therefore absorption is always at 100% for anything that flows through the lumen.

    SHOW ME WHAT RICE YOU EAT THAT HAS COMPLETE PROTEIN?

    MMMM, NEVER HAD AN ISSUE W/THAT IF THE AMOUNTS PER MEAL ARE CORRECT AND NOT ABOVE/BEYOND WHAT THE BODY CAN USE IN ONE SITTING.

    There is 8g/100g of white rice, you call that no protein??

    However they are short chain amino acids so its pretty shitty protein like soya. Its basically just a protein protector then, there isn't enough in it to be of enough use.

    Vince Gironda seems to get great results using raw eggs/milk/cream diets with all of his trainees imo..


    dont see why it's really so bad??

    flexor soy protein is a complete protein. Rice isnt on the other hand.

    IMO many are to obsessed with the quality of the protein. Different sources complement eachother and togheter they become complete. If you eat a fairly balanced diet there is no reason not to get a big chunk of protein from incomplete sources.
