How many eggs are equal to 4 ounces

I know at breakfast your supposed to have 4 ounces of protein. So if I do a simple eggs and bacon how many eggs should I have. I usually have 3 slices of bacon. Not going to have cheese this time around. I am trying to jump start my weight loss. I looked on the atkins site but I cant find how many eggs are equal to 1 ounce protein.

It roughly looks like four ounces of eggs would be 2 'extra large' eggs. But.....eggs are not 100% protein, so four ounces of eggs does not equal four ounces of protein.

Ok my bad I misunderstood what you were asking. So four ounces of protein, that would be 113.4 grams, so a large egg has about 6.3g of protein per ******, so it would take 18 large eggs to get four ounces of protein.

So that's probably not what you're looking for. It probably means four ounces of meat, so a typical meat like 85% lean ground beef has about 20.8g protein in 4 ounces, so that would be the protein equivalent of about 3-1/2 large eggs. Maybe that is more palatable than 18 in one sitting, it would be like Cool Hand Luke!

I fixed up the post above, I think it means 4 ounces of meat, because 4 ounces of actual protein is what many people would eat in an entire day.

If you're looking to get the protein of about 4 oz. of meat at breakfast, this comes to somewhere between 20 and 30 grams of protein. Eating just bacon and eggs... it's about 6 grams of protein per large egg, and about 2 grams of protein per slice of bacon.

2 eggs and 3 slices of bacon have about 18 grams of protein.
2 eggs and 4 slices of bacon have about 20 grams of protein.
3 eggs and 3 slices of bacon have about 22 grams of protein.
3 eggs and 4 slices of bacon have about 24 grams of protein.

NOTE: Your bacon "slices" may be different than mine -- check the packaging, and it will tell you how much protein each of your slices has.

Also: One of the great things about eating low carb is that instead of counting calories and stopping when you reach a number, you eat until you aren't hungry anymore. So, I always cook extra bacon, and eat until I'm satisfied -- the leftovers go in the fridge, and get crumbled over salads later.
