I have been looking into the recepies and lots ask for egg whites but I don't wanna kill my protien on egg whites in a biscuit or pancakes par say -- my coach is on holidays for 3 weeks so I can't ask her =( but I have been reading here that egg whites are a freebie but I was told by my coach in the beg 2 eggs is your protien but that's not egg whites -
Was just wondering what's correct and what others have been told?

I believe you can have two egg whites a day in addition to your normal protein (packet and whole protein).

The newest sheet (June so not that new) says you can have 4 egg whites and 2 egg yolks. Most people find the 8 oz of meat at supper too much anyway, so having eggs or adding whites can give you some protein throughout the day if you need it.

I personally love to use my egg whites to turn the cereal into pancakes, or a shake into cookies. They're more filling to me, take me longer to eat, and a lot of the shakes and puddings taste gross to me as is. When I bake 'em into a muffin or something, I can enjoy them more.

2 egg whites a day are freebies! I have fried egg whites every morning!
the 4 egg whites plus 2 yolks equals the 8 oz of protein

The June 2012 Phase 1 IP sheet says 4 whole eggs plus 2 egg whites for your (dinner) protein serving.

Many people have been told by their coaches that an additional 2 egg whites/ day for recipes is acceptable.

These darn sheets! I actually went to my fridge and looked at my sheet, and it's circled in pen as my coach told me the "new news" and it ONLY said 2 whole eggs. I really thought it was 4 but second guessed myself till you confirmed it, so, as I've said before "Always listen to Scorbett -- or Lisa-- over me anyday!" ;) Thanks for clarifying. Now I'm REALLY excited. Gonna have me one yummy omelette tomorrow (since DH ate my pancakes!Grrr)

So it's would tech not be a freebie then? It would go towards the Protien -- my sheet only has 2 whole eggs as Protien -- so I guesse of I did half of a protein and half of the eggs it could work out-

2 egg whites can be used everyday for "free." Do not subtract from your dinner allowance.

If you decide you want scrambled eggs or a veggie omlet for dinner, it should contain 4 whole eggs and 2 egg whites to make up your 8 oz. protein for the day.

You must have an outdated sheet.

Check the sheet I posted. It is the most recent IP phase 1 sheet. Your coach may be using an old one (not all coaches stay up-to-date)

Dinner protein for eggs is FOUR whole eggs plus two egg whites (not just 2 eggs)

IN ADDITION
Many here have found 2 egg whites for recipes is an appropriate freebie. NOT something that needs to be subtracted from dinner protein b/c egg whites are technically 0/0/0.

Extra CARBS matter a LOT more than the egg whites will.

This is the *correct* information. I had to give my coach the new sheet.
