I either microwave them until they are soft and less crunchy or I stir fry them in a teflon pan. I never eat them raw, I find it tastes bland that way.
How many eggs a day and how prepared?
I eat 30 egg whites a day. I save a little yolk in each egg so basically it adds up to two or three yolks. I get boiled eggs from a local organic catering service a block from Golds (Jimmy´s on Hampton). I´m too lazy to boil them myself. I like the peeling the shells off, it makes it more fun to eat.

I basically semi starve throughout the day and feast at night.

Do you drink a lot of water and or juice?
Yes I drink water, but I don´t force it anymore. Juice? No way! It was years ago! I think it´s horrible to make juice. I don´t eat fruit by the way. Why? Because there are healthier things: vegetables. And when choosing what is more efficient nutrition I choose what I find gives me the best.
