    Eggs--highest quality protein on the planet?

    "Eggs and Protein
    A combination of amino acids, some of which are called essential because the human body needs them but can't synthesize them. The human diet must regularly supply protein which contains all of the essential amino acids. The egg boasts them all: histidine, isoleucine, leucine, lysine, methionine, phenylalanine, threonine, tryptoOphan and valine. They are present in a pattern that matches very closely the pattern the body need, so the egg is often the measuring stick by which other protein foods are measured.

    In addition to the 9 essential amino acids, there are 9 other amino acids in an egg. Altogether, each Large egg provides a total of 6.25 grams of high-quality, complete protein. For this reason, the egg is classified with meat in the food categories. One egg = 1 ounce of lean meat, fish or poultry. A Large egg provides 10 to 13% of the Daily Reference Value for protein and varying amounts of many other nutrients."

    A weightlifting friend I know swears by eggs. Eats a dozen and a half hardboiled egg whites daily. He is a beast for his size. No taller than 5'6, 150 lbs max and at this point he is benching 300+

    Yes, this is true. Though the yolk also has a significant amount of preotein in it. If you eat the whole egg, you'll have to worry about the cholesterol...

    BTW, quality is a measure of the amounts of amino acids( are all the amino acids included, and the amounts of each)

    Soybeans are an exellent source of protein. When I was bulking I ate 1 and a half cups a day. They have a bland taste so I put a bit of salt on them. For breakfast sometimes, I eat 2 egg whites instead of one whole egg.
