I've tried raw eggs. not really a whole lot of taste to 'em really, I guess it's a tecture thing. I don't really see any real reason in doing it again though unless your in a hurry and don't have time to cook the egg(s). I guess that was my dad's case when he was working out a lot because he would take a raw egg and crack it in a glass of beer and that would be his breakfast.

What was he training for- 'Mr. AA' 2004?

A raw egg in a bloody mary is an old cure for a hangover, but alcohol plays no legitemate part in the diet of anyone, let alone as nutritional support for exercise.

A lot of guys like the 'hardcore' or manly associations with raw egg ingestion, I will admit to that myself- watching people wince as you crack an egg straight into your mouth is kind of cool. Same with a tuna milkshake, its horrid, but its a psychological thing- you are enforcing a mindset of pushing past personal comfort to achieve results, pushing boundaries that others cant, or wont step over to get an edge.

Its the same in training- do you rep out on the pretty pec dec machine whilst admiring your lycra-clad self in the mirror, or do you bench a raw lump of weight till you feel like being sick all over your old track pants?

psychology plays a big part in performance, so if you only absorb 4 of the 6 grams of protein from a raw egg, but the act of doing so helps you train harder, and motivates you on some level, then it will give good results.

Excellent information post, Cord. I feel like I have learned quite a bit about a food source that I will STILL never eat.

If you think salmonella is only damaging for the young and old or with compromised immune systems, talk to an internist... that little bugger loves the healthy body, and does heart damage if it isn't caught and the right regimen of antibiotics started almost immediately.

Years ago, that wasn't really a concern, because the germ wasn't that prevalent in the food chain, but "production changes" have created a lot of weaknesses in our food production systems that allow our "little friends" to sneak in and be a threat. I love eggs, and used to eat them "over light", but once I found out what salmonella could do, any egg product I eat is well done...

There are way too many "macho" things that are just plain stupid, and gambling your heart health on eating raw eggs is one of them... and it can cause permanent colon problems as well. Just not worth it...

Thats an understandable precaution Wrist, but if you still want the occasional 'runny egg' as we brits call em, then you can get fresh egg that has been bottled and pasteurised, making it as safe as a de-clawed kitten.

For those who do wish to incorporate egg into their diet, a hard boiled eggs are a very easily transported nutritious snack, even if it they do taste of the smell of farts

Thanks for the info Cord! I'm not sure about the U.K. but in Canada there is a product called Egg Beaters that comes pasturized in a carton, It's real egg white with "replaced" egg yolk, and has less fat and Chl. Thanks again, Mabey I'll even try adding one or two raw eggs to my shake.
