    It is if you're in training. I imagine it would be pretty damaging if you just sat on your backside all day tho.

    I tried it once and couldn't do it. The consistancy of it is disgusting!

    It's not healthy at all. Besides raw fish, it's the number 1 cause for salmenela poisoning.

    That's true, but a friend of mine got seriously into training before he went into the army and he used to drink raw eggs before going for bike rides wearing a weighted backpack. He's a physical trainer in the forces now.

    It's supposed to be good for bulking up, but I read somewhere that the protein in cooked eggs is even better for you (don't quote me)

    He drank them every day and he didn't get salmonella poisoning. I don't think the op was talking about salmonella anyway, just the effects the actual eggs have on your body.

    and I promised myself I would never do it ever again... [​IMG]

    Cooked eggs (and most cooked food in general) brings more protein indeed.

    I've combined a raw egg once or twice with protein shakes - never on its own though :/

    Some Hollywood script writer should not be your top source for info in nutrition, physical training, etc.

    Also done this.. Tasted kinda... Yeah.. [​IMG]

    Raw eggs are extremely good for you if you're actually physically working out regularly. Just make sure they're as fresh as can be (bought from the store the same or last day) or better yet from your own pet chickens! (Sister used to have pet chickens! [​IMG])

    If you're doing it with an eye on getting better at some sport or bulking up for bodybuilding, you should drop the yolks since they're 100% fat and you don't need it.
    Besides, the protein in the white is best used by your system if it's cooked, so having raw eggs is both disgusting and not as effective as eating them properly cooked.

    Oh! and if Salmonelosis is a concern to you and still insist on eating them raw, just wash the shell before you open it. The virus comes from the chicken feces.

    Egg = a chickens period.

    people wouldn't suckle on their ma's vag at that time of the month, but they'll happily eat the result of a chickens failure to conceive.. ;p
