So disgusting
« on: April 17, 2016, 07:47:08 pm »

So, as most of you know I exercise quite a bit and work out for a variety of reasons (anger, health, continuing to look smexy), but what some of you might not know is that I eat like crap. I'm a junkie for junk food and i'm pretty certain that if my eating habits continue as is i'll probably die in about 15 years, exercise or no exercise. So, for both aesthetic (moar smexiness) and health reasons i've decided to start eating quite a bit healthier than I usually do.

This brings me to the topic of this post: Egg whites.

Now don't get me wrong, I love eggs. Scrambled, with feta cheese mixed in, cooked with butter and maybe with some other toppings added in. I have a particular love of twins (eggs with two yolks inside of them), because egg yolk is yummy and delicious. And it's also, of course, terrible for you.

Egg whites, on the other hand, are basically pure protein, and probably one of the best things someone like me could ever consume. Health-wise, that is.

To cook it so that it won't stick to the pan you need to use some sort of oil (I refuse to drink it raw), and since I was opting for a healthier diet I was cooking my egg-whites with olive oil. The result is this:

I'm not sure the image properly conveys what this is like, but I assure you that it smells like an abortion and it tastes like licking a soiled dog's tender bits, all with the texture of vomit.

If you're serious about eating like an athlete, then you also need to give up all carbonated beverages.

I never drank carbonated beverages to begin with (hate the stuff).

What you need to do with egg whites is add a little sugar then whisk them for about 25 mins by hand before putting them in the oven.

The coney by me, one of their breakfast specials is egg white omelet cooked with olive oil. So either they're lying to everyone (totally a possibility) or something went terribly wrong.

Aw, that's a shame haha! Now you won't be able to appreciate the performance level difference between the two. I recommend drinking two liters of pop a day for a month, then quitting, so you can see how much better it is not to drink it at all!  ;)

I used to drink a can or more a day. In Feb I switched to all water.

Honestly, the only difference I've noticed is if I try to drink pop now my throat burns and I feel like I'm going to throw up a few hours later. Health wise I feel the exact same.

You sort of have to be an upper-echelon athlete to appreciate it - but if you have ever pushed yourself to the point of being 'winded' you will find that you can go much father before being winded, without all the carbon dioxide in your system.

I'm sure all the super sugars in pop are also beneficial to drop as well.

The Zerka is on the money. Used to drink pop all the time as a kid, soon as I stopped I lost Hella weight and my teeth lost their yellow tint.

Started drinking it a lot again last year, and the difference in my conditioning is crazy.

Uh... not really, no.

Egg yolks (but not whites) contain vitamins A, D, E and K along with omega-3 fats. Compared to the whites, egg yolks also contain more beneficial folate and vitamin B12. The yolks also contain far more of the nutrient choline than the whites, and all of the antioxidants lutein and zeaxanthin. The cholesterol they have is the "good" kind which can lower the "bad" kind and is therefore, good for your heart. You just have to exercise moderation.

At the amount I'd need to eat for it to serve my dietary goals it would be terrible for me, does that make you feel better Kiel?

xD No. Because I didn't feel bad to begin with. (I just thought you might like to know.)

Really? It's been used before.

Most notably when people were all pointing out how they ship Kiel and Quiller.

Still hard to believe that all started because I was getting annoyed with coins constantly posting oversized images on the forums.

Clearly I had no choice but to make ongoing sexual references about his mom.
