    Drinking Eggs

  • 1 decade ago

    Drinking eggs doesn't make you stronger, but it does help if you couple it with muscle building exercises. The reason for this is that the egg white is full of protein. It is better to drink the egg raw (if you can stomach the taste) as when the egg is cooked it denatures the protein, hence why it turns white, making it harder for protease to "break down" the proteins in to amino acids. Drinking the eggs raw stops the protein from being denatured by cooking, so more protein is "broken down" in to amino acids which are then rearranged into a different type of protein depending on what it is needed for. In your case it will be needed to build muscle tissue. So the more protein the more tissue is created.

    So that is how drinking raw eggs helps build muscles, but remember that eggs may contain salmonella enteritis (which ironically can cause muscle weakness) so take care if you plan on drinking raw eggs.

    Only if you have extremely low cholesterol and can do Rocky Balboa's Herculean exercise routine. Drinking raw eggs was a very big thing and a "good" was to bulk up before more nutritional bulking supplements were on the market. Before you start your new "raw egg" diet, head down to you local GNC or Hi-Heath or even a Gold's Gym and ask someone.

    Eggs from large poultry farms are not cooled quick enough to prevent getting salmonella. This is due to to quantity of eggs and the time it takes for the refrigeration to penetrate the huge stacks of eggs.

    Raw eggs do not make you stronger, that takes exercise.

    Well....Eggs contain protein,protein is good for muscle development, as long as your really moving those muscles the protein in the eggs will help.

    Try an a egg white omelete, this is what body builders like to eat because the white of the egg is high in protein where as the yolk is high in fat.

    The only way they will help is by provinding you with nutrients present in the eggs. And if you drink them raw, in my opinion they will increase your chance of getting salmonella.... so I don't ever drink raw eggs... (yuck) but I do like them boiled and fried and scrambled..... :)

    No. They are just a good source of protien. Anyhealth food store or GNC can supply you with a protien supplement that isn't quite as disgusting. Raw eggs taste like snot. Not that I've been eating snot lately.

    they dont make you stronger. But they are an excellent source of raw protein which your body needs to make muscle. But you have to be carefull because some eggs may contain salmanella.
