I was just wondering how many egg yolks you all take with your whites..? Each morning I down 6x whites with 1x yolk. I know some people may leave out the yolk all together because of cholesterol.

So what ratio do you eat, and why...?

i use 2 cups od eggwhites and 3 whole egg. yolks have good cholesterol in them and good fats.

when im on keto i eat 1 dozen whole eggs a day. llast time i ran keto for 5 weeks so that was well of 30 dozen whole eggs. not sure if i answered your question. all depends on your requirements i guess.

Not too worried about the cholesterol in eggs yolks. I'm not saying I only eat whole eggs, because I do throw in egg whites a few times per week, but mostly to fill protein requirements without getting the fats. I've read a couple good studies on the dangers, or lack thereof, of cholesterol in eggs. Your body actually needs cholesterol to run perfectly.
