Why So Many Egg Whites?


April 14, 2010

Eggs give you the most bang for your nutritional buck. They're low in calories-just 15 per egg white. Five egg whites provide 20 filling grams of protein at just 75 calories (although the vegetables and low-fat cheese you add also have calories). Why do we care about protein? If your body doesn't get it from food, it will break down muscle to meet its protein requirements. Not only this will make you look flabby, but muscle burns more calories than fat does.
