yea its easy to make them scramble that way which is just gross. I bet you could still get away with some very lightly cooked yolk recipes like a zabaglione with out working to much about oxidation

adding a broken yolk to heat may not be the best way, I've heard that it may oxidize the cholesterol

yeah I just down the whole thing, im also low carb most of the time, although I love some roasted sweet potatoes on the weekend with loads of butter & some roast lamb, so delicious. im curious in what way do the whites give you trouble?

so you eat the white as well? I have trouble with the raw whites, but am okay with cooking the whites and having the yolk raw. I have 2-3 in the morning and they keep me energetic until the afternoon. I don't eat many carbs, including from fruits, roots or veggies, so I don't get any nagging hangries.

I have 3 raw eggs more or less everyday, usually i'll workout in the am and then wait until my belly starts rumbling (usually 3/4 hours) then have 3 raw eggs as my first snack, it feels great, instant energy & they sit in my stomach very well, not massively 'filling' but very satisfying I find, keeps away hunger for about 3 hours, the only reason I don't eat loads of them is the avidin that people go on about.

I generally think they're fine to eat raw/whole though.

I hardly touched eggs until I realised how beneficial they were. Taste of the yolk really put me off.

Now I take 4 raw yolks daily. The whites seem to bind the biotin and are high in protein, so I ditch those.

I put 2 yolks into a glass with a bit of turmeric and ground black pepper. The trick is to pour fermented milk on top - I use Polish kefir - and mix. Nice drink. Combined with a bullet-proof coffee with 80g of butter, this keeps me going for 4-5 hours. For lunch I can just eat cream or chocolate, then repeat the yolks/kefir late in the afternoon. Evenings are for meat and leaves.

Apart from that, a raw yolk direct from the shell is no longer a problem - slightly chalky taste.

i think raw whites are really gross, and theyre high in avidin which binds to biotin. Yes the yolks are high in biotin, but i still only eat the yolks raw. If you want to make them a bit more appetizing you could make kogel mogel by beating raw yolks with a bit of honey until it gets a bit more creamy of a texture.
