Default Half the yolks

I just read that when you make omelets or scrambled eggs if you are body building you must only use half the yolks. Surely no one else on here does that do they? I mean that seems so wasteful.

That would be very wasteful indeed.

Just eat the whole egg.

Half the yolks, you mean, 2 whites to every yolk?? Some do, some don't...there's waste in pretty much everything, to some degree, I don't think anyone eats the outside tough skin/peel of a pineapple, to my knowledge anyway

I use the whole egg. I do not think that you only need to use half the yolk. That to me does seem wasteful.
