If you want to go on some "grok diet" where you eat the bare minimum of everything because chances are that's how we had it, by all means be my guest, but just because Grok may not have been able to eat his fill of eggs doesn't mean eggs are UNHEALTHY.

    Also, if you're seriously going to base all your food on what Grok may or may not have done you might as well stop eating all vegetables, and never ever ever EVER have a salad with more than 2 ingredients.
    I think you missed my point. At the end there, I said that I'd rather make eggs my staple than cereals because eggs are healthy and inexpensive. Quite the opposite of which you're accusing me. I pointed out the accessibility of eggs to paleo man because it's relevant to our evolutionary perspective and an interesting factoid. Not sure why your panties are in such a bunch over it.

      The "you" were in a general sense, not directed at you. I should have specified. I also missed that last part, my fault.
      I used to seriously post here, now I prefer to troll.

        Same here. Four for breakfast every morning (two whole, two whites) and I only limit myself to the whites to help me better control my calorie intake, not because I'm afraid of cholestorol

          Dietary cholesterol has little to do with anything at all. In fact, it basically does absolutely nothing. The only reason cholesterol rises with age, or at all, is because it's not being converted to the proper hormones. I find it astonishing how this ignorance still exists, and how much money is being wasted trying to vilify something so benign.

            The outdated thinking that the cholesterol you eat goes straight to your blood and is therefore bad is just as old and wrong as the "fat is bad" junk. The body produces all the cholesterol it needs, or not if you eat it in your diet, and excretes what it doesn't need. Few things you eat go directly into your bloodstream unprocessed; most things are greatly altered before use, or excreted if toxic or unneeded. I don't think they definitely knows how blood cholesterol is regulated yet, but it isn't by eggs.

              You know, I have always found scrambled eggs a bit dry for my taste. This totally takes care of so many issues!....

              Oh, and if I don't eat eggs for a meal I still throw back 2-3 raw egg yolks each day (ditching the useless whites). Mmmmm good.

                I love eggs and I don't think they are unhealthy for most people. A while ago I ate more than twenty eggs a day for four weeks as a part of a diet. Dietary colestrol has little to do with blood colestrol anyway...

                  Yea, I tend to go through egg phases. Some weeks I'll go through a couple dozen, while others I'll only have 1 or 2 the entire week. Well, at least by themselves anyway. They are extremely versatile, though, and an extremely convenient source of energy. Make some hard-boiled eggs ahead of time if your in a rush, or poach some if you have leisure time in the morning. Either way, it's MUCH better than the SAD breakfast of cereal, coffee with sugar, and OJ (for the 'healthier SAs).

                    Take a hunk of cooked beef (burger, steak, whatever), and top with some butter. Top the butter with a gently fried egg, yolk side down. Tap the egg until the yolk runs over the buttered beef - instant hollandaise without the hassle. A spritz of lemon is optional. (Also a CW cardiologist's worst nightmare, but that's just a side benefit.)

                        Exactly. I remember talking to two students at the nutritionist program...they said that nowadays, we have learned that eggs are not as dangerous as people thought they were in the past. Unless you have problems with cholesterol already, you can easily eat a couple of eggs a day.

                            TFC eats the raw yolk out of eggs as his PWO snack much to the astonishment of other people at his gym.
                            Tasty good! However the limeaceous egg white goes down the drain that shit is nasty.

                              Careful with the drains....hot water can cause some issue here . I eat my raw yolks by the trash can instead. Avoid the plumbing issues.

                                As a long time lurker, I decided to make my first post here.. since the video I posted today was on topic.

                                Eggs are the best.
