My second question is much easier... Does anyone else drink pasturized egg whites as a source of protein?? And if so, is there any other better way to get the same protein amount that egg whites provide without either A. Eating hardboiled eggs(I hate cooking), or B. Drinking egg whites. Another small question that relates to this, Is this safe to drink in moderate amounts???? I might be parinoid but I don't want to chug down a carton of this stuff, then throwing up for a day. (I've had experiences with this when "overeating" spinach and peanut butter). Thats just it for now. Thanks!!!!

There are tons of ways to get protein without drinking egg whites. you could purchase a tub of protein powder and a shaker cup. Also Eating lots of chicken is a great source of protein. Cottage cheese has tons of protein and you can eat it regularly, or mix it with fruit.

On a side note, I loved to use our big foam rollers back in high school (same principle, bigger stick made of foam) as they could cover more muscle in less time.
Now, I was a hurdler and 4x800m runner and have owned 4 sticks/foam rollers.
Another tip, if your shins are bothering you at all ask me about ice cups, as it's 5 am and i need sleep.

As far as the egg whites go, as long as they are the carton pasteurized type, you should be fine drinking that everyday, but I could see you getting sick just from the consistency and taste if you plan on drinking large amounts. The problem you run into with raw eggs is they bind biotin in your body and can cause biotin deficiency, however that is extremely rare and you literally have to have about a half carton of raw eggs every day for two months straight.

Why use egg for protein as opposed to Whey powder as most people use for more protein? Back when I used to lift regularly I used http://www.bodybuild...e/opt/whey.html in the double chocolate flavor. Mix it with water if you are watching calories, mix with milk if you're trying to get more calories, or mix it with milk and instant coffee powder for an awesome morning drink.
