I definitely have more energy & I'm feeling great! I am walking 30 minutes after work (when it's not raining!) and I feel even better afterwards.
Here is the comparison:
Egg 78 cal 5 fat 6 protein .6 carb
White 17 cal .1 fat. 3.6 protein .2 carb

So lots more calories and fat having two eggs (even a few more carbs!) I would personally stick with the 1 egg 3 whites, but... You can try it both ways to see if you get a similar amount of energy. It could be enough extras to slow you if you are doing it regularly, so just know what the stats are. Since you are adding other things that already will slow you down, you may not want to add even more "extras" that take you even further away from the nutritional numbers that give you better losses.

Glad you are feeling so good on the Alt Plan. If it is working, then it is the right plan for YOU!
