How to Eat Your Eggs for Maximum Health Benefits

Eggs are often one of your most allergenic foods, but I believe this is because they are cooked. Heating the egg protein actually changes its chemical shape, and the distortion can easily lead to allergies.

If you consume your eggs in their raw state, the incidence of egg allergy virtually disappears. It is my belief that eating eggs raw helps preserve many of the highly perishable nutrients such as lutein and zeaxanthin, which are powerful prevention elements of the most common cause of blindness: age-related macular degeneration.

Fresh raw egg yolk actually tastes like vanilla. It can be eaten “Rocky style,” combined with avocado, or in a shake with whey protein powder, raw kefir, or a small amount of berries. However, egg protein is easily damaged on a molecular level, even by mixing/blending. If you choose not to eat your eggs raw, cooking them soft-boiled would be your next best option.

Scrambling your eggs is one of the worst ways to eat eggs as it actually oxidizes the cholesterol in the egg yolk. If you have high cholesterol this may actually be a problem for you as the oxidized cholesterol may cause some damage in your body.

If you’re in the habit of eating only the egg white, be aware that controlled diets of only raw egg whites can lead to severe biotin deficiency.

Why?

Because when you consume raw egg white alone, without the yolk, a component in them called avidin binds to the B-vitamin biotin, potentially creating a deficiency in your body.

To make sure you’re getting maximum benefit from the whole egg, follow these recommendations:

My primary recommendation, and the one I follow, is to separate the yolks from the whites so you can cook the whites and consume the yolks uncooked, or raw. The white can be cooked and eaten on its own. Although cooking the white reduces the nutrient quality and perhaps increases allergic sensitivities to some, the avidin in the egg white breaks down when cooked to 100 degrees Centigrade, therefore releasing the biotin back for your absorption and virtually eliminating any risk of biotin deficiency.
Don’t eat raw egg whites every day. Allow your biotin reserves to rebuild and eat only raw yolks as an alternative breakfast.
Eat yolks one day then whites the next. Remember that the biotin loss occurs in your digestive tract when the two molecules bond together before it is even absorbed. Eating the yolk and the white separately will greatly reduce the problem.

Yeah i guess so, buy the organic free range eggs.
I usually scald them in boiling water for 5 seconds before cracking them into my shake. This is to kill any bacteria that exist on the shell (e.g. salmonella).

Humorous are the replies of people eating raw eggs and are proud of the amount they consume.

Doesn't matter how you eat your eggs and it doesn't matter how many eggs you eat.

There is no benefit to eating them raw. As a matter of fact a person who eats 2 cooked eggs will gain more nutritionally than a person who eats 2 raw eggs.

I'm not here to tell you what to do though...If your building muscle it would be a good idea to eat eggs along with fruits, veggies, meat, etc...

It is DEFINITELY UNNECESSARY to consume large amounts of eggs as it is unnecessary to consume them raw.

just eat complete/balanced meals through out the day

D&B I'm pretty sure you are referring to me but I wasn't bragging...merely trying to give the guy evidence to not worry and quit spending tons of money on organic eggs and wasting time boiling. So hopefully this clears that up.

eggs are cheap, easy, and help fulfill your macro nutrients. Nuff said
