As for the added fat and calories?
Its about 50 more calories to eat the yolk. and 4-5 grams more fat..
But the yolk has a lot of essential nutrients and vitamins. =
AND MORE are all found over 90% in the yolk.. Less then 10% in the whites.
Here's some that is ONLY in the yolk -
DHA and AA
So if you look at this huge list.. I think 50 calories more is worth it? I always eat the whole egg, and since trying to lose weight I'm trying to have 1-2 a day.
Is one of natures best foods. May even try eating some yolk raw
Since it saves all of the nutrients that way. If you can handle the thought of it *shivers a lil* ... Maybe in a smoothy or something.
