Not too bad.  No excitoxins and low saturated fat.  I think you're onto something.  (Of course you know I'm not a big fan of wheat though.)

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.

I know about the wheat issue,  But I like this food as something I can get and have with me as being very convenient.

I have read different perspectives on W-3s in foods, I was planning to start eating 2 EFA eggs a day(hard boiled) as sometimes I crave a warm food

but since I plan to not  eat the yolk, I don't need to care if the egg is a EFA eggg or not.  I will only eat the egg white as I find the pre-made/pasteurized eggwhites Ive enjoyed for years have a substantial amount of salt

If I recall, this might increase my HDL, but wont hurt my LDL?
right?
but the high AA content is going to do to my arteries what  Im working on avoiding

 one big reason I don't consume egg yolks:  arachidonic acid (AA).  Especially if you don't get enough omega-3's, arachidonic acid increases Inflammation throughout the body. Of course, inflammation is a cause of heart disease, cancer, erectile dysfunction, Alzheimers, arthritis and on and on.  So this is not good, because one egg yolk has around 390 mg of AA, which is a high amount for a food source. [12]

So, while it's true that egg yolks don't raise cholesterol that much, the small boost in cholesterol coupled with the big boost in inflammation may be the kiss of death for your arteries.  One recent study recently found that consuming egg yolks raised carotid artery thickness, a measure of arterial plaque buildup (arteriosclerosis), as much as smoking! [13] In other words, eating egg yolks may very well be as bad for you as smoking. (Some would argue that if you get plenty of omega-3's, you may be okay. I can't thik of a good reason to take the chance.)

Well, I tend to agree with the above-mentioned author.
