Is there any problem with eating 6 hard-boiled egg whites every morning?

Nutritionaly it will give you around 36 grammes of protein and that is fine. I would, from personal experience of an egg heavy diet, have a small bowl of bran based cereal with the eggs, to prevent certain 'difficulties' later in the day

I think it depends on your training programme. I am led to believe that it is the yolk of the egg which contains most of the cholesterol but it is also the yolk which contains most of the nutrients. Cord is right about the protein and eggs are a good source particularly for veggies, but too many eggs can increase your bad cholesterol levels.

Is there any particular reason why you're eating 6 egg whites a day?

The link between eggs and the increase in LDL cholestorol has been disproved now. The correlation was more down to the frying process of traditional cooked breakfast. Egg whites will in no way increase your cholestorol.Fact.

You'd probably fail an emmissions test with the vapor trail of toxic gas you'd be leaving behind you - but other than that...

I totally agree that egg whites don't effect your LDL cholesterol levels. I did say that egg YOLKs contribute to LDL cholesterol, maybe you mis-read. If you still mean egg yolks, can you let me know where you found the relevant information? Thanks.

Dumbells question was related specificaly to the ingestion of egg white, he has already made the decision to discard the yolk. Your final statement (quoted above) could have caused him confusion, so i was just stating the facts as they stand. Incidentaly, the current research is leaning towards genetic predisposition being responsible for elevated cholestorol levels not dietary considerations (eggs included).

Well, I'm 19 years old, about 5' 8" and about 143 lbs. I don't eat much at all...I eat like only one big meal a day at about 5:00 pm. I was only eating those eggs as an extra source of nutrition/protein as they are easy to make and don't really take a long time. I really need to eat a lot more than I am currently eating.

Eat more of a better balanced diet. Egg whites don't have that much nutrition.

Egg whites are a complete protein source, containing all essential amino acids, providing your system can handle digesting egg (some are intolerant) then nutritionaly they are spot on for lean tissue growth/maintenance.
Sure, they dont have the same level of absorbtion that you would find in double micro filtered cassein powder supplements, nor the chocolatey taste of ripfast whey protein shake, but eggs work out a fraction of the cost of nicely packaged and marketed protein supplements.
Vince Gironda, Steve Reeves, John Grimek, Arnie, Sergio (the list goes on) all built physiques with milk and egg protein as the cornerstone of their diets/supplementation.

Thats how little nutrition egg whites have.

I think CanuckMA is part correct in that other than protein, egg whites actually contain very little minerals and vitamins or any other goodness. Depending on the main meal dumbell tucks into it is important that he gets enough of vitamins and minerals as well as protein, but that goes without saying.

Fair comment, it is always best not to assume the obvious.
As with any protein source, it should be complemented with good quality foods from all other groups to maintain a balanced diet.

6 eggs a day...alright, but you won't be pleased for what comes after. If you're lucky, you will digest the eggs. However, stay away loved ones for it will give you the worst smelling odor, great in matches. You opponent will steer clear from your backside.
I can't eat eggs because they always get me sick. I can't even eat one. I throw it up and I don't know what it is. I like the taist of eggs, but I just think it might be an issue with just me. No matter how I prep them, I get sick.
Good luck,
Gar
