    Why is it that I can't eat scrambled eggs, but I can eat a boiled egg but only the yolk, not the whites which contain most of the protein. Is this a common allergy?

    The yolks contain most of the protein. I eat 2-5 eggs every single day, usually scrambled. Boiled eggs just give me gas.

    I don't eat that much but now I've got into weight lifting and I need to eat a lot to gain weight. I can't eat scrambled but I've tried a little before, it's good.

    Be VERY careful, BIK, which vaccines you take: they used to use albumen (egg white) as a base to grow vaccine bacteria in, and people who are allergic to egg whites can have severe reactions from the injections.

    My sister has an egg white allergy, too. Sometimes people outgrow it.

    In the meantime, it's easy enough to separate the eggs, and just use the yolks. You can crumble them in a little white sauce (bechamel) and eat on toast, or mash them up into tuna salad or potato salad.....

    I haven't took vaccines for food allergies in years, if I accidentally eat egg whites I drink a can of Pepsi or coke to help it clear out. I know I'm allergic but I just don't get why I can eat the yolk and not the egg white.

    You're prolly not gonna' gain weight eating eggs. Try bananas instead and maybe a protein drink in addition to your normal eating regimen.

    What are your goals and what does your current Diet look like OP?

    I don't really have a diet routine, I eat everything I see now, and the only way ill get muscle mass faster is through food, my trainer said it would be a much slower process if I don't eat enough. I'm looking to gain 40 pounds by the end of the year. I weigh 124 pounds and pretty tall, but not so skinny, just more about thinness, so it's gonna be a hard road, but I'm determined now. Btw, I'm allergic to protein shakes so lol, I don't drink them anymore. Just going to rely on any food.
