Egg White Protein Powder - Protein Shake
and Egg Whites
By Jean Lam

Are you fed up with cracking of eggs or boiling eggs and removing the shell? You're not alone. Many body builders consume egg whites on a regular basis and many of them are used to boil eggs and remove the whites after as well. While it's not a big deal if you do it from time to time, it can become a hassle if you do it everyday for example for body builders since they eat egg whites practically on a daily basis.

But since there is egg white protein powder nowadays, many body builders have taken the shortcut to getting their protein intake from eggs. Egg white protein powder is more convenient, easy and fast to use. So no more cracking eggs. This powder can be used as egg white protein shake or used in your breakfast oatmeal for instance. Most of these egg white protein powders contain artificial flavors and sodium as well and the protein is of high quality. Just one scoop of egg white protein powder can contain as many as 22 grams of protein per serving. So two scoops and you already get a whopping 44 grams per meal which is good.

While you can have egg white protein powders at your disposal, you should use it along with natural eggs from time to time. I am not saying you should try to avoid them but just don't rely solely on these powders as they contain artificial flavors and sodium. It's the the same thing when you're being told to eat canned foods with moderation as they contain sodium. Sodium is not good for health but if you eat it in moderation there is no problem.

So, I recommend your protein intake from egg white protein powder but in moderation. Whole foods are still fundamental in your diet. Still natural eggs are important. Don't avoid them completely just because they can be a hassle sometimes mostly when boiling and cracking. Just cracking, removing yolks, beating and using as omelette is less hassle for sure. When I talk about moderation, same thing can be applied to natural eggs. I wouldn't recommend you to eat 3-5 egg yolks everyday because although their saturated fats are low, their cholesterol content is high and should be limited to about 1-2 egg yolks a day maximum.

The egg white protein powder should be used as a supplement. So use this supplement as a stand alone or replacement meal if you want or with your meals. Another good use of egg white protein powder is immediately after your workout to recharge your depleted muscles. Your post-workout meal is of paramount importance and you should fuel your body with a high protein meal or shake.
