Usually, large whole eggs have 6 grams of protein.
The white will yield you, on average, 3.5.
Hope this helps.

why do people not eat the yolk, what does it have in it?

The yolk has fat in it. But when you throw away the yolk - like SwoleCat just mentioned - you throw away half the protein. Unless you are eating a very large quantity at one time or on a structured diet... IMO - eat the whole frickin' egg and get all that great whole egg protein for your $$$'s worth...
Personally I put down 4 whole eggs ED in between breakfast and my afternoon meal...

A large egg contains 6-8 grams of protein 5-7 grams of fat of which 2g is saturated and a single yolk contains approx 448mg of cholesterol and last time I checked the daily limit for a male was 390mg,personally i think if you have high blood cholesterol which is manufactured by the live from saturated fats then you would want to avoid eating egg yolks but if not a couple a day will not hurt you but you might think about cutting out the yolks whilst cycling simply becaused of the cholesterol
