    Whole eggs v's Egg whites

    I'm just wondering if anyone uses only egg whites while cooking on slimming world??

    I eat a lot of eggs on slimming world and although i'm happy with my weight loss so far but wondering if switching to egg whites only might help speed things up??

    Any idea's?

    I am aware of the different nutritional benefits of the egg yoke but I already eat such a diet I am not concerned about this.

    I don't think it will help with anything. If it did, SW would have it as an option.
    Its probably less filling only having the whites and so you may go on to eat something else to compensate?
    Eggs are good for you, full of everything you need for good, healthy weight loss.

    I think just having egg whites stems from very old diets from way back when people were afraid to eat any fat at all! We now know some fat is needed and what could be better than fat coming from a completely natural food source?

    Eat up!!

    Eating less of any food would probably speed things up - if you ate only half of what you bought, for instance - I wonder why you are thinking just of eggs? And what are you going to do with the yolks - chuck them out?

    I broke my arm so was using liquid egg( found in the fridge of my local tesco, just egg nothing added). You can get whole egg or just egg whites. So i got the egg whites to try and liked them better. Using the same quanity.
    I feel just as full after and im not eating extra food either. Just wanted a different view on it.

    Oh well, if you like them better that's a whole different issue. Go for it.

    Personally I love my (whole) eggs....couldn't imagine using just the whites. I know Americans do that because of cholesterol but yolks are good for us.

    I love the yolk, but my OH isn't a big fan. I think if I gave him the option of egg whites only, he'd happily choose it!
