dukeno1 You may be right but all the so called medical experts lately have been saying that yolks are bad for you in excess so I will err on the side of caution. I sometimes throw one in and there is always a little you miss when separating.

RickB i'll go counterpoint on "Four eggs are fine if you are taking out the yolks."

doing that is throwing away the most nutritious part of the egg. and please dont trot out the cholesterol card, whole eggs are probably one of the absolute best foods for improving one's cholesterol profile.

Fair enough, I still stand by my point that the vast majority of North Americans are not a healthy weight, so telling a guy that's 6' 135 to "go eat a bunch of bacon" is probably not the best advice!

dont forget carbs and fat intake too. and no, just by eating protein rich food will not grow you muscles.
Four eggs are fine if you are taking out the yolks. I eat 8 egg whites every morning , usually with some brown rice. Then a little fiber one cereal with some walnuts and a few cranberries...get's me off to a good start with my protein and carbs/fiber. Lol, the egg farmers must love me. For what it'sa worth , I was in your shoes when I graduated from high school...6ft 140. Joined a gym, and have been weight training ever since. 48 now, 5-11.5 (some settling has occured..haha) 195-200lbs depending on the time of day.
No one would call me fat but the charts say i am almost obese. If you want to gain weight hit the weights and eat a lot. Peanut butter and jelly and milk
always worked for me when I was younger. Best thing though, eat healthy and the weight will come. Good luck with the board ! I am a newbie too and love it so far.

I'm 5'7", 180 lb or so, and every indication says that I should lose about 20-30 pounds of fat to be healthy.

RickB that is an awesome way to start your day..... to stay nice and lean! more chunky folk should do this i think. (the only way bacon can make a person fat is if it's eaten in between bread errday)

Yes. If you believe in the Body Mass Index you'd be half way through overweight, and on your way to obese! For what it's worth, I'm 5'7" and 175 and have the same BMI as you.

I think we are ALL overweight in North America. Time for us all to give up the crap and get healthy again!

I usually have 4 eggs with sausage and cheese every single day for breakfast but I'm one of those kids who just don't gain weight at all :/
