My Egg Fast Diet Results

Egg Fast Diet Results

First off… Before I get onto the egg fast diet. If you haven’t already, check out my results on the keto diet. That experience would change my life and the way I viewed food forever.

I’m excited to be writing this because it’s something I’ve done a lot in the past but never thought of it as an actual diet. I remember being young and not having much. I could always count on a good ole plate of scrambled, fried or even boiled eggs. There were times when eggs was all I had to eat for weeks. I’ve always been a fan of eggs and can eat them by the dozen on a daily bases.

Not to long ago I lost my debit card and had to wait a few days before I got a new one. I only had around $20 give or take for food until my new card showed up. I started to think about when I was young and had to eat eggs because, well let’s face it… A dozen eggs are Cheap! So I bought a carton, scrambled them in some butter and went to town.

At this point I’d been on keto for about 9-10 months. My body fat percentages in single digits. But at the same time, I still had that little pudge at the bottom of my my gut that I could not get rid of. After the first day of just eating one dozen of eggs, I noticed that my lower gut has shrunk a little bit. Then day two came and I bought another carton of eggs, noticed my stomach had shrunk a little more. After three days of eating just eggs I lost 10 pounds and my lower gut was gone. (I actually lost the 7 lbs in the first day and a half and then increased my calories by adding butter to preserve muscle).

I thought I was on the something. So I thought to myself, I wonder if other people were doing the same thing. So I googled it, and noticed that it was actually a diet. I was shocked to see that people were actually using this method purposely to lose weight. The egg fast diet is definitely not for the faint of heart. But if you’ve been eating healthy and exercising regularly, and you still have that little bulge at the bottom of your abs. This might be something you might want to look into.

Next I will go into more detail about the egg fast diet and if you think it’s for you give it a go.

Egg Diet For Weight Loss

Most low carb dieters like to use the egg fasting approach to break a plateau. I think the weight loss mainly comes from being on a calorie deficit while egg fasting. The great thing about eggs is that they make you feel full pretty much throughout the day.

I egg fast at least one day out the week for it’s simplicity and convenience. Not to mention I live alone…lol… So it really comes in handy when having a “very productive” day. I’m never “busy”…

I also suggest that you’ve been doing a low carb diet for at least two weeks before attempting an egg fast. The last thing I want for your cholesterol to skyrocket because you ate a ton of carbs the previous day. So please be careful!

What is the “Traditional” Egg Fast Diet?

The egg fast diet (originally called “Egg Fest”) was made popular by Jimmy Moore. He used the egg diet to combat severe hyperinsulinemia.

His rules as follows:

1. The eggs are the primary source of fat and protein.
2. 1 tablespoon of butter used per egg consumed.
3. Eat at least one egg no later than 30 minutes after waking.
4. The egg meals ideally should be eaten every 3 hours, but not more than every 5 hours.
5. Follow this schedule even if you’re not hungry, however only have 1 egg when that happens.
6. Cheese will be permitted up to one ounce per egg. (real cheese only)
7. A minimum of a half-dozen eggs must be consumed daily.
8. The eggs will be local pastured eggs loaded with healthy omega-3 fats and vitamin D.
9. Egg consumption will cease three hours before bedtime
10. Diet soda will be allowed up to 3 cans daily with a goal of 1 or less.

Egg Fast Diet

My Egg Fast Diet Strategy

Originally what I was doing was an all egg diet as stated above. Then when I seen the results of eating eggs with butter for a couple of days, I decided to incorporate egg based meals into my lifestyle. Since eggs are the primary source of protein, I like to include green veggies and avocados for fiber.

Depending on what I’m trying to accomplish, I may eat 2-4 avocados along with the eggs to keep from losing muscle mass.

My Egg Fast Diet Plan

Egg Diet

Being that I intermittent fast for a 24 hour period, I like to eat all my eggs in one big meal at the end of the day. A 24 hour fast is not for the faint of heart. And I do not recommend fasting for an entire day to lose weight. For me it’s convenient and I view food only as a fuel source (not entertainment).

So I created a plan based on regular eating schedules. And also the 16–8 rule of intermittent fasting.

Classic Schedule: (3 meals a day)

I would suggest eating eggs every meal whether it’s scrambled or boiled. Just make sure to get your fats. Also you might want to add green vegetables so you can get your fiber.

If you prefer boiled eggs, you may want to take a little coconut oil for added fats. You can also mix butter with spinach or broccoli and a little cheese.

I love choosing broccoli as a side for dinner because it’s over 90% water. You can eat a good amount of broccoli with very few calories.

Mini Meals: (6 meals a day)

If you are going to fix six meals a day. Then it pretty much works the same, just make sure you add your vegetables in at least one or two of the meals.

In this case I would boil some eggs for most of the meals. And for dinner I would get my additional veggies, fat and cheese.

16:8 Intermittent Fasting: (eat within your 8 hour window)

With this one, you can be whenever you want to as long as it’s your eight hour window. So if you’re fasting window is from noon to 8-pm.

  • Noon: 2 eggs with butter

  •   3pm: 2 hard boiled eggs

  •   5pm: 2 eggs

  •   7pm: 2-6 eggs with veggies, cheese and butter. (depending on your weight-loss goals)

I should also note that: If you’re a male that’s trying to keep muscle, I would add in at least 1-2 avocados for added calories.

Egg Diet

Egg Diet Extreme!

If you want to lose weight quickly on an egg fast diet. Eat 6-8 eggs split between meals with butter. The egg diet works because the eggs make you feel fuller with less calories. No cheese, no veggies just butter. Take a multivitamin since you’re not eating vegetables!

The Egg Diet On Steroids!

I always get messages on Instagram and emails from women who have an emergency (wedding, event..etc…) coming up in a matter of days. And they want the Fastest way to lose weight on an egg diet no matter the circumstances. I originally did not want to post this but… Maybe it will stop future emails/messages pertaining to this matter.

I do not recommend trying this but if you’re desperate it’s on youDon’t sue me!…lol

  • Drink your coffee or tea for breakfast as usual.

  • For lunch, get 4-6 eggs, salt & pepper.

  • Crack eggs and a place in a Tupperware.

  • Add salt & pepper to taste and stir.

  • Microwave for 30 sec. (with the lid off) then stir.

  • Repeat the process above stirring every 30 sec. at least 3-5 times until desired scramble texture.

  • For dinner just do the same thing (with 4-6 eggs). That’s it for the rest of the day!

  • Take a multivitamin or two.

  • No butter, cheese, vegetables or anything. Just eggs, salt and pepper.

The trick is to make sure you stop and stir “every” 30 sec. Don’t let it scramble all the way! When you leave it moist, it gives the illusion of butter in the eggs while you’re eating them. I wouldn’t do this for any more than three days.

Egg Fast Diet Case Study (Day 1)

Egg Diet Update: 09/30/2016

I actually injured my back while exercising so i didn’t finished the egg diet (this time around) like I wanted to. But of course I will do it again… I’m addicted!

Me at 180 lbs On The Egg Diet (Super Lean!)

egg fast diet

“It’s not Cool to be 180 lbs. at 6’3”

I admit… At 180 pounds I was very light on my feet… But at my height I looked like a “Crack Head” so I had to put some weight back on.

I think part of the reason I allowed myself to get that lean is because I had a weight-loss obsession that developed from my results on the infamous keto diet. More on that here.

With that being said, eggs are one of my go-to meals anytime during the week. I also like to eat one big breakfast as a meal for the day as well.

Below are some of my favorite variations of and egg diet. YUMMY!!

Other Egg Diet Variations

I understand that a lot of people are not a serious egg lover (like myself). And even those that do love eggs, will more than likely get tired of eating just eggs all the time, every day. That’s why I recommend that you add in other ingredients like meets, vegetables or anything that will add variety to your meals.

All Egg Diet

The all egg diet is pretty much nothing but boiled eggs. When I tell people that sometimes I may fast for 24 hours and eat a whole dozen eggs. The look on their face is priceless! But I don’t recommend it, I’m just crazy like that…lol… Plus doing for consecutive days will make you hate eggs… You would also need multivitamins trying this.

Steak and Eggs Diet

Steak and Eggs Diet

The steak and eggs diet, is one of the more popular egg fast diets. And there are a lot of success stories using this approach. I have personally never tried it. I’m not really a huge fan of beef.

On that note, I do eat pork steak and eggs every now and then. I think I might have burnt out on beef growing up as a kid. Being that I was “raised” a Seventh Day Adventist, I was not allowed to eat pork or seafood. Things are different now!

I digress…

If you love steak and eggs, then by all means give this a go. Just remember to add in a multivitamin or some veggies of some sort. I provided a little information  and recipe below because I couldn’t help myself…lol

Is Steak Healthy?

Steaks are good for low carb diets especially if you get the fatty cuts. The protein is good for your muscle tissue. It’s also a good source of vitamin B-12, iron and zinc. Plus if you’re bodybuilding, you’ll like the BCAA’s and creatine the steak has to offer.

Bacon and Egg Diet

Now I’m not going to lie to you, I can eat bacon and eggs all day long. That’s what I love about a low carb lifestyle. I can eat as much bacon as I want despite what society led me to believe when I was growing up.

Bacon and Egg Recipes

These are some excellent bacon and egg recipes if you cant help yourself and crave bacon and eggs everyday. Don’t feel bad, sometimes I go on a bacon and egg binge for like three days straight…lol

Bacon Egg and Cheese

Low Carb Bacon Frittata

Hmm Hmm HMM!! I could eat about seven of these without blinking…lol.. This is a great addition to and egg fast diet. Add a couple of these puppies in during your egg diet and you’ll forget that you’re dieting!

Packed with dried parsley, pepper and salt, your family will love these as well. If you want to make them even better, add sauteed spinach, minced broccoli or spring onion. Yea!!!

I’m getting excited as I write this so please bare with me…

Bacon Egg Cups

Wow! You’re going to love this dish. It’s perfect for any low carb diet like paleo or a ketogenic diet. Plus you can make this for your family and eat a couple sections while you’re egg fasting…lol… Pretty slick Huh?

Egg White Diet

You’ve probably heard of people eating egg whites only, as a healthier alternative to regular eggs and in a caloric-sense it is. But considering how little of anything is actually in egg white, nutritionally, it’s akin to eating pretty much nothing.

Hard Boiled Egg Diet

Eating scrambled eggs with butter is one thing. But eating hard boiled eggs all day by itself is a different story. Because when you are on a low-carb plan, you want to make sure to get all of your fats. Because the fats will be the primary source of our energy, our fuel. I was suggest eating hard boiled eggs on a bed of spinach salad with a little salt and pepper and olive oil.

Grapefruit and Egg Diet

I’ve heard of people losing massive amount of weight on the egg and grapefruit diet. With this approach, it’s not about eating low carbs or high fats. This is more or less a calorie deficit type of diet.

28 Day Egg Diet

I don’t think I would ever try a 28 day egg diet to be honest. Doing an egg fast diet for 7 days was pretty tough (nothing but eggs, butter and a couple avocados).

Don’t get me wrong, if you’ve made it this far down the post you know I love eggs. I can eat a massive amount of eggs in one sitting. But everyday for nearly a month? I don’t think so…

28 Day Egg Diet

Do Eggs Have Carbs?

Now you might be wondering if eggs have carbs in them. The bad news is yes they do have carbs. But the good news is that it’s around .6 per egg.

How Many Eggs Should You Eat a Day?

Now before you start going crazy over the cholesterol level. Unless you been sleep under a rock, eggs only contain the good cholesterol that you want in your diet. This has been an ongoing discussion among nutrition experts. Since I intermittent fast, I can consume a whole dozen eggs in one sitting. Some days I might even go as far as eating two dozen eggs. That’s only because I love eggs… Don’t judge me…lol

Before You Start Your Egg Diet!

It’s important that you’ve been carb restricted for at least 2-4 weeks. If you’re looking to start a low carb diet, I would suggest doing a Keto Blitz to start. Plus for a limited time you get exclusive access to the Keto Blitz community!

    I want to know if cheese or cream cheese counts as fats as butter, coconut oil, etc? Or separate. Up to 6 oz of cheese and fats as butter, oil etc per eggs? I’m little confused. Example I ate ten eggs, 2 cream cheese, 3 cheeses, and 8 fats by butter. Is that lot?

    So I’ve been reading the different comments about the egg fast diet and I’m really interested in trying this out in the upcoming week I’ve been on a low-carb diet for about 7 weeks now drinking at least 10 16 ounce bottles of water a day and I’m losing about a pound a day so I would try this out and tell you how it worked out

    I’m not at my goal, I’m 30 lbs from goal actually, and I did the egg diet for 4 days and lost 10lbs. I’m going to try it for a full 7 days and then go back to my keto diet. I would kick the apple out of your day for sure, and then be sure your almond milk is unsweetened. Is your chicken breaded or grilled, and what kind of vegetables are you eating with your eggs. Be sure to drink plenty of water. I’m no doctor but if you’re already having issues with your thyroid that could be what’s interrupting your weight loss.

      Please don’t!… You’re really young and you have plenty of time. If you’re not carb-depleted, (meaning if your body is using carbs for energy)… By you eating butter and eggs, it will go straight to your fat cells and shoot your cholesterol through the roof!… At bare minimum you should “at least” cut your carbs down to 20-30g a day for about a week… If you exercise you can depleted your glycogen/carbs a lot faster…

    So in order for the egg diet to work you need to already be at your weight/size goal? I have been struggling to get back down in weight due to thyroid issues and a back injury for the past 3 years now. I have been eating 2 eggs @bkfst with 1cup almond milk a coffee and an apple a little later, lunch 2 eggs with salad and handfull of almonds about 10 (I have small hands). Supper 2 eggs and a small amount of chicken. I have made an omelet with vegetables in it and cheese for supper. I lost 2 lbs in 2 days. Any suggestions to change anything?

    Hi Julius, I have a Christmas dinner coming up on the 10th December and I really need to drop weight fast for this. I have been following a LCHF diet for 5 weeks now. How long would you suggest I do the egg fast for? I also do a 16:8 fast everyday so only eat between noon & 8pm everyday. Can I choose between scrambling my egg and boiled eggs on the egg fast?
    Thanks, T

      The reason why I recommend being low-carb for at least two weeks is to prevent your cholesterol from skyrocketing… You can lose the “weight” just by dropping the carbs alone…

    Hi Julius

    I’m keen to start the egg diet next week.

    The only thing I need to loose is my lower tummy and little handles I developed in the last few months. I’m not even sure where it came from…i was so busy with work and suddenly it appeared.

    I’m hoping the egg diet works cause I have tried gyming but have a knee issue from a motor vehicle accident and can’t do cardio without knee pain.

    HI , my trainer suggested me to eat 6 eggs before workout , 6 eggs after workout and 4 eggs in afternoon and 3 eggs in dinner with chicken . He suggested me to eat as less fat as possible and no vegetables in whole day. He also included 3 protien scoops a day , one before workout , one after workout and one in evening with dinner. I weight 80 kgs and height is 6 feet. But I want flat abs. Can you suggest me if the diet is ok?

    I am on the Egg Fast and have lost 5lbs in 2.5 days. I have 4 eggs for breakfast (7am), 4 eggs for lunch (1PM) and 4 eggs for dinner (5PM). I don’t like cooking so for Breakfast and Lunch, I drink the eggs with a little bit of whole milk. For dinner, I scramble the eggs and add about 1/2 cup of Mexican blend shredded cheese to make an omelet. I eat my omelet with loads of picante sauce. Occasional snacks are Frigo brand mozzarella cheese sticks. I have had a few ounces of sweet tea with my dinners, but I usually drink water. (1/4tsp Himalayan salt, mix with 1 quart water) Monday, I weighed 258, I started Egg Fast on Tuesday 9/13, Thursday after lunch, I was 253. I will continue Egg Fast through Friday. The best part of all is that I don’t feel hungry! I plan to eat my LCHF leftovers this weekend and back to Egg Fast next week.

    So many fuss around this egg diet, but isn’t it unhealthy to eat so much egg withiut doing sport? I mean maybe its good for those building their muscles, but not for others. I would rather go with dr simeons diet – my bff did it with Anat Stern and lost 10 kilos in 40 days, this a good result I suppose. Also plan to go on it soon.

      I’m not sure what you mean about the first question. An egg fast is great if you hit a plateau or your at the “size” you want to be but still have that stubborn little bulge that you just can’t get rid of… But I wouldn’t recommend “egg fasting” no more than a week… Three to four days seem to be the sweet spot for me… Keep in mind that you want to already be eating low carb for at least two weeks before trying and egg fast…
