Do you toss out the yolks when making eggs or baking? It's certainly true that sticking to egg whites only will eliminate a lot of calories, but do you know what you're missing out on? Egg whites contain mostly water and protein. The yolks, on the other hand, are nutrient-rich and provide you with more protein and heart-healthy fats and vitamins.
If you're a stickler for calories, think about this. A medium-sized egg contains about 44 calories, compared to the egg white of a large egg, which boasts 16 calories. While you're saving yourself some calories by tossing the yolks, you're forgoing much of the nutrients you need to stay fuller longer.
And another concern you can't help but bring up is cholesterol. How can it be that egg yolks are still good for you considering the amount of cholesterol (186 mg) they contain? Well, it has been proven that healthy people can eat an egg or two each day and still maintain stable blood pressure levels.
