Default Whole Egg Avoidance

Many bodybuilders opt for the egg white and ditch the egg yolk for whatever reason.

The truth is the egg yolks are the most nutrient-dense portion of the egg. All of the egg's Vitamins A, D and E are in the yolk.

Egg yolks happen to be just one of the few foods that naturally contains Vitamin D. The yolk portion also has more manganese, phosphorus, iodine, copper, calcium, zinc, and iron than the egg white itself.

Egg yolks should not be avoided because of the high amounts of cholesterol either as high cholesterol levels are correlated with diets high in Trans Fat and Saturated Fat, and genetics play a big role in cholesterol levels. Egg yolks are also anti-catabolic because of the Arachidonic Acid found in them. Overall, there really isn't a reason to avoid whole eggs.

The yolk does contain the bad cholesterol but eating a ratio a 3 whites to 1 yoke is a good balance to get the most out of your egg yoke/white consumption.
