Hard Boiled Eggs

Hi friends,

I would like to bring up the topic of boiled eggs. Very easy to prepare, and easy to pack away in the lunch box… this food is an athletes paradise. How many of you are eating your boiled eggs?

Ideal for mid-morning snacks, and late night munchies.
I reccommend cooking the egg in boiling water for 4 minutes, cool with water, peel and sprinkle some salt and pepper. Voila!

When I get real deep into contest preps, I snack on 'em all the time. Dieting is the only time I’ll toss the yolk because I’m trying to really just fill myself up on minimal cals.

Eating 10 hard boiled egg whites with some hot sauce, Dijionaise, or even just some salt will make you feel like you actually had a decent serving of food, and yet only has 150 cals. Add in some veggies and you’re eating next to nothing with the feeling of being satiated. Works for me! -lol.

I’m probably going to go this route this week, as I have some weight to drop.

Not a fan… especially when you plan on eating 5-6+ eggs in one sitting.

A lot harder to put down in large quantities IMO.

I eat a ridiculous amount of hard-boiled eggs…about 8 or so on a given day.

I’ve been known to boil 2 dozen, put them in a salad bowl in my fridge and peel and eat as I go, still leaving the shells in the bowl. The life of a bachelor is a good one at times!

EXCITING, GAME-CHANGING PRO-TIP: Once the water starts boiling, cover your pot with a lid and turn the heat off completely, leaving the eggs to simmer for 15 minutes or so. This will make the eggs easier to peel and will save on energy costs.

First of all, apparently the “Bird” is also a cannibal.

Second, I eat at least 2 eggs a day, usually hard boiled. They’re very convenient to take to work. I also follow the bring slowly to boil then reduce to simmering for 12-15 minutes technique.

Hell yeah. Sometimes my college cafeteria has nothing but shit to eat. Except for the hard boiled eggs. There’s always a big thing of eggs which I eat 10 at a time.

Can’t get those slimy things down? Here’s another PROTIP for you. Honey mustard sauce. Yeah you heard me. Try it.

I think if we combined our two PROTIPS together we could conceivably make a paradigm shift in the world of bodybuilding nutrition…

That’s what makes it ideal for a person trying to cut; if it’s perceived as difficult to get down, then he/she will eat less of it.

The ground-breaking combination of taste and convenience from our protocol could be borderline illegal. We may want to keep this strictly black ops… Only the serious need apply.

I refuse to eat anything that literally smells like a turd.

Amen… boiled eggs are the spawn of satan. Omelet (plain) or scrambled both with a few dashes of hot sauce or some mustard and now your talking!

PROTIP: chew a whole hardboiled egg for a while, flush it down with milk. Makes eating a lot of them really easy and fast.

It’s about time to boil me some eggs. Thanks for the reminder.

Protip: Instead of hard boiling, drop the egg into boiling water for a minute killing any salmonella on the shell, crack it raw into a glass. pour a 1/2 Tbsp of organic raw cream on top. I would say drink or eat but its more of a gulp. Tastes great and is loaded with muscle building nutrition. Do as many as you need

do any of you have insane difficulty peeling the shells?

i love hard boiled eggs but my Lord my cortisol goes through the roof trying to peel them.

so much so that i basically stopped having them entirely despite hard boiled being my preferred method of egg consumption.

sometimes they peel fine. but i’d say at least half the time it’s like the shell is glued to the egg and i rip off huge chunks of egg trying to get the shell off.

then my ab fat triples overnight from the cortisol dump.

(extra info: i prepare them by putting them in a pot of cold water, get it up to boiling, toss on a lid, take them off the heat and let stand for 10 mins. sometimes cool them in cold water after. perfect hard boiled egg but impossible to remove shell.)

please help.

I heard that putting some vinegar in the water helps, don’t know if its bull though.

whoa.

  1. the beginning of the video is EXACTLY me peeling eggs. except, i’m not a broad. and that’s not my kitchen.

  2. $10?! do i look like Bill Gates to you? if i could afford a $10 contraption i’d have a private chef doing this for me.

  3. plastic container in boiling water? don’t you know what that’ll do to my estrogen levels bro? high cortisol AND high estrogen? give me a wig, a pair of heels and put me out on the street.

  4. but thanks for trying to help. it is a pretty cool contraption.
