I hope the eggs you're eating are organic, because regular commercial eggs come from such sick chickens that I couldn't in good conscience recommend them to anyone serious about their health.
Many people don't even realize that these eggs are of such poor quality that it is no longer considered safe to eat them raw. If you check with your governmental department that handles this, they should advise you that eggs can no longer be consumed safely if raw, soft-boiled, or sunny-side-up.
The regular consumption of raw eggs might also cause a deficiency if not properly supplemented.
Then again you should remember that the most important items for athletes is lots of water followed by complex carbs.
Now for the other side of the coin. Scientists have called the egg the most perfect food and with good reason. Did you know that the protein in the egg is the standard by which all other proteins are rated? A whole egg has every single nutrient and in just the right amount to create a complete complex life form. It also comes in a pure form, since it is not yet alive, and thus it contains no waste or toxins running throughout it.
There is actually very little that could have been done to create a more perfect food. It does lack vitamin-C. Since the chicken produces its own vitamin-C, there isn't any in the egg. It also lacks fiber. Since the egg was designed to hatch there wasn't any need for mother nature to add fiber. And, of course, if the egg was designed to develop into a human fetus instead of a chick, well then there wouldn't be much room at all for any type of improvement, would there?
So if you're not allergic, eat an egg, eat it raw, eat it whole, they're good for you. Just consider what has been said.
Just a quick note on Cholesterol (C). The egg does contain several nutrients that can lower a person's C. But no matter what anyone says, there will still be those that continue to believe the old cereal industry's propaganda of the 1950's, which convinced most everyone that eggs will give you high C.
Bon Appetit, Paul...
