    Don't be such a pussy

    If you're talking about bodybuilder diets - where theyll be having a hell of a lot of eggs a day, then fair enough, its probably best to only have a few yolks and the rest whites.

    But in terms of the person in this thread, I highly doubt he/she will be eating 5+ eggs with toast, so it would be more beneficial to have the yolks.

    Don't give me the cholesterol bollucks
    Sure.. I don't really care myself, it's just what I've heard a lot. Chill bro. I don't even know why it would be beneficial to have the yolks. Less cholesterol = better?

    Depends on the person when it comes to egg yolks. They contain all the egg's fat and cholesterol but then almost half the protein. So, if a high cholesterol is a problem for you I'd advise a 1 or 2 whole eggs and if anymore is needed make that up with just the egg whites.

    -They contain around 50% of the protein within the egg
    -Rich in fat soluble vitamins (ie; A, D, E & K)
    -Good source of fat (saturated fat in moderation can be beneficial

    The vast majority of circulating cholesterol is synthesised by your body (~70%). Sure dietary cholesterol (eg; that contained within eggs) has an impact on your cholesterol levels but it isn't as significant as many believe.

    You want to eat a good carb packed breakfast nontheless...
    If your breakfast is over one hour of your workout:

    Have:
    Oatmeal
    2/4 fried eggs
    2/3 Tbsps Peanut Butter
    Glass of Milk

    If its within an hour of breakfast..
    Simply have 2 slices of bread with peanut butter, 1/2 bananas and a glass of milk.

    Surely it varies entirely depending on whether you're looking to do cardio or weights.

    Normally I just have a simple piece of toast with some kind of nut butter on top. Very light but has a good amount of protein. I make sure to drink water during my workout and I feel fine afterward, but if I do feel a little drained I will eat a spoonful of nut butter.

    If I don't drink water or eat protein I just want to sleep.
    How is that a good amount of protein?

    Would be better to have scrambed or boiled eggs. I prefer scrambled as they are easier to consume (don't leave you feeling as full).

    Well for me it is, eggs (even plain boiled) or large breakfasts in the morning make me sick. Just something I've found that works well for me.

    It's like 5g protein. Add another slice and a glass of milk and a lot of spread then maybe you can say that, but whoever you are what you originally posted is not a "good amount". It's less than 10% of the absolute minimum of what is recommended (which is on the low end anyway) in what should be a substantial portion of your daily calories.
