this is the best tasting protein I've ever had
its more money and not as h/c as some of the others
but for me thats a compromise I'm willing to take to really enjoy it

^^And why is this in the grocery list. Last time I checked, a supplement is not the same thing as food

Things to add:

Egg Whites (probably already there but I just discovered these )

YAMS! These are great additions to chicken, slap one in a microwave with a little cinnamon and boom

Wow great info.

I heard deep fried stuff is bad? Is it true that you can't get a 6 pack if you eat deep fried stuff?

To have a visible 6 pack, you need to have some decent ab muscles, but most importantly, a low BF%. The average person starts showing abs at arounf 10% or so. To lower your BF%, you have to burn more calories than you consume, so it is possible to eat deep fried food and still show abs as long as it fits into your daily calories, but deep fried food is very unhealthy

Those are egg whites and are the healthiest part of the egg. You should try to get some yolk once and a while because there are tons of nutrients in the yolk but as a pure clean protein source, you can't beat egg whites.

I personally have to cook them but if you can do it raw, I guess that saves you some time.

I've always wondered, do eggs with different grades (AA, AAA or Omega 3 or anything) have different nutrient values? Does one have more protein than the others? I always buy eggs at costco, where it's $2 for 24 counts lol.

Do not consume it raw, there is a risk of getting salmonella poisoning. Usually a healthy person would only get sick and be fine, but I'm not sure how well you immune system is.

Also, the egg whites has avidin which stops biotin pick up and can give you a biotin deficiency if you consume too much egg whites. This usually is over some time before causing anything damaging. Luckily, the yolk has tons of biotin that would counteract the avidin, so just eat the whole egg once in awhile to get your nutrients.


I eat the whole egg. The damn thing is only 70-80 calories.

from wiki:

"gg-whites contain high levels of avidin a protein that binds biotin strongly. Once a biotin-avidin complex forms, the bond is essentially irreversible. The biotin-avidin complex is not broken down nor liberated during digestion, and the biotin-avidin complex is lost in the feces. Once cooked, the egg-white avidin becomes denatured and entirely non-toxic."

eat all the egg whites you want, just cook 'em!!

hmm interesting, i thought the point of cooking eggs was to get rid of salmonella. didnt know about this digestion issue

I'm assuming you mean the gyros you can get at the local fast food-ish Greek place... If that's the case, gyro meat is about as healthy as a hot dog. It's a mix of several kinds of meat with lots of preservatives and grease/oil.

Now, if you are able to verify that what you're getting is 100% lamb, then it's a very good meat selection. I love lamb, but I won't go near 99% of gyros you can buy.

Paul, yes. Yam = sweet potato.

It's more easy to kill with a sword than with a gun.

A sword is more frightening than toy-looking gun like glock.

robbing with a sword is a good thing
