What is The Egg Diet Weight Loss Fast?

Egg Diet Weight Loss

Have you heard about the egg diet weight loss fast? This is the first one of a few articles where I will share my experience and recipes for this egg fast diet.

One of the frustrating things that has happened to me is that my weight on Keto/LCHF has just basically been stalled no matter what ratios I have tried.  Maybe it’s my age (mid 50’s), maybe it’s my activity level which is now so much less than before my knee injury.

Whatever the reason, I have been frustrated by slow and even non-existent weight loss.

Enter the low carb egg fast!  Also called Egg Fest or Egg Diet Weight Loss Fast, also called the LCHF Egg Fast Stall Breaker!

Now it was that last name that really caught my attention.

What is the Egg Diet Weight Loss Fast?

Here are the original rules as designed by Jimmy Moore for his own Egg Fest which he apparently followed for 30 days and lost 27 pounds in that 30 days.

1. Must eat eggs as the primary source of fat and protein.
2. 1 tablespoon of butter used per egg consumed.
3. I must eat an 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. I will follow this schedule even if I’m not hungry, however I’ll 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. (this was his personal preference)
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.

 

Ok, so now you have HIS rules that he made for himself.  Here is how I reworked it for ME, still in keeping with the original plan:

  1.  Eggs are still the primary source of fat and protein.
  2. 1 tablespoon of the following fats PER EACH EGG consumed (in order of preference):  grass-fed butter (Kerrygold) or Organic Extra Virgin Coconut Oil or sugar-free mayonnaise, preferably home made or Trader Joe’s Mayo.  I limit my low carb egg fastmayo to 2 tbsp daily and try to do mostly the grass fed butter.
  3. Within 30 minutes of waking I make my BPC (bullet proof coffee).  I use 16 oz coffee, packet SweetLeaf Stevia, 1 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp butter.  It looks and tastes like a frothy latte.  This means that I omit 2 tbsp fat later in the day with some of my eggs.
  4. I do not go more than 5 hours between meals.
  5. I only eat if I am hungry, except that I stick to the 5 hour rule.
  6. Up to 1 oz of cheese per egg consumed (real cheese only)
  7. Eat a minimum of 6 eggs daily
  8. I try to get the best quality eggs that I can find and afford
  9. I do not eat within 3 hours of bedtime
  10. Diet soda?  No thanks!  I figure my morning coffee is my version of this rule.  However, we are finally seeing the Zevia Natural Soda here in Canada so I may have one of those now and then if I need something.

So there you have it, my very own custom tailored version of the egg diet weight loss fast!  In my next post I will share my own results of breaking my LCHF stall and then I will share some recipes!

Here are some menu ideas to get you started:

  1. Brenda says:

    I just found your blog and wanted to say thanks for all the great info. I too have struggled a lifetime with weight control. Currently 56year old, 220 pounds and 5’9″. I started your “Egg Diet” May 1, 2017 and have lost 4 ½ pounds so far. thank you! Question… Do you limit the bullet tea to so many a day? Would you recommend plain green tea in unlimited amounts. Thanks in advance

    • KetoWoman says:

      That is entirely up to you and your level of tolerance to caffeine. Myself, I am sensitive to it so I can only have 2 coffees in the morning and herbal tea the rest of the day. Green tea is awesome and I do drink decaf green tea every day. Right now I am doing regular keto but the egg fast helped me to lose my cream habit and go dairy free. Since writing this article, I have lost another 40 pounds in addition, so I am happy with that!

  2. Vivian says:

    Pls can i fry the eggs with olive oil sometimes

    • KetoWoman says:

      You will have to decide that for yourself. Olive oil is not the best oil for cooking, coconut oil is better because it has a higher smoking point. The admins in the egg fast group don’t recommend it. Good luck!

  3. Tony says:

    Why limit the mayo to less than 2 Tbls a day? Does this also apply to your own homemade?

    • KetoWoman says:

      There is no limit like that on mayo. If you eat 12 eggs you also eat 12 tbsp fat and that can be either mayo, butter, or coconut oil.

    • KetoWoman says:

      Oh I see, you were referring to my own personal limit that I mentioned. Now that I make my own mayo I would not limit it, at the time I wrote this I was having trouble finding mayo at the store that looked healthy to me. Lots of them use soybean oils and have sugar. I’ll put a clarifying statement on that. Thanks for commenting! 🙂

  4. Stacy says:

    What about raw cocoa butter as a fat in bpc?

  5. Rosanne says:

    Can you eat gelatin and bone broth on the egg fast diet.
    I find both help me with joint pain, especially in my knees.
    I am working on keto diet bit find my colon is plugging up with the fat intake.
    Hoping the egg fast can help me out
    Please let me know your thoughts. Thanks.

  6. Yvonne says:

    Nice to find a fellow-Canadian Keto-er!
    That said, where do you find Kerrygold butter in Canada?! 🙂

    • KetoWoman says:

      Hi! Oh how I WISH we had it here! I live very close to the border and so I buy my Kerrygold when I make runs to the Costco in Bellingham. Thanks for visiting my site!

  7. Kati says:

    Is 10 eggs the maximum you can eat in one day? And do you count calories? .

    • Kati says:

      Okay I saw the post on most asked question and never mind on the maximum egg per day. But I still like to know about my second question on the calories. Thanks

      • KetoWoman says:

        There is no counting calories. Two important things to count are #eggs/#fats, the ratio of 1 egg to 1 tbsp fat is important. The second thing is to not go over 4 ounces of cheese for most people. And there is one more thing, eat until satisfied but not stuffed. Good luck!

  8. Melissa says:

    Have you ever tried egg drop soup on the egg diet when you have the egg sickness? I was just wondering if it would be acceptable in general. Without the starch or soy sauce. thanks so much. Today is my first day on egg diet. I was going to start out on ketosis diet but really had no idea how to begin.

    • KetoWoman says:

      Egg Sickness? Do you mean Keto Flu?
      At any rate, one of the members over in the egg fast group came up with an EF compliant egg drop soup.
      Boil 2 cups water with 2 tbsp butter, add lots of sea salt and pepper. When it gets to a rolling boil stir in 2 beaten eggs. Another member likes to add a couple tbsp cheese to that.
      It’s quite yummy, hope you try it!

  9. Nav says:

    Hello.
    Im starting the egg fast today with lots of hope as i need to lose some kgs by next week. Gained some kilos post pregnancy but luckily healthy eating shed some of them without any diet and exercise. Now im stalled n want lose fat on precise areas. Can we need exercise during the egg fast?n how long a session n how many? Will i feel tired, dizzy n weak?? Exercise will lead to water, muscle or fat loss? Thank you.

    • Nav says:

      Srry.. can we exercise..

    • KetoWoman says:

      You are probably better off to find a low carb group on facebook where people exercise a lot. I just don’t have a lot of experience in trying to spot reduce specific areas, I’m not sure it can even be done. If you are not already keto and fat adapted, then yes you will feel tired, dizzy and weak while you detox from carbs. Hope you find your answers!

  10. Zainab says:

    I have been onnthe LCHF diet since april and my weight has stalled in the last 3 weeks, I will definitely be doing the egg fast…
    Kindly add me to your facebook group… I have already sent a request.. Thank you.

    • LISA says:

      I have also sent a request to join the egg fast stall breaker diet. I have been doing LCHF for 18 years. I have stalled in the last year and gained about 30 lbs. About to turn 50 and exercise level has dropped. I plan on dropping the weight and getting back on my exercise routine. Looking forward to gaining info and chatting on the FB page!

  11. Nicole says:

    Hi there. I have been off coffee for about 3 months now. I have replaced it with either hot water and lemon or Caf-lib coffee alternative. Are either of those options acceptable?

    • KetoWoman says:

      I don’t know what that coffee alternative is, but the idea of the egg fast is complete elimination. Of course, you are an adult and can do what you like but I encourage people to wipe the slate clean and try the egg fast as is, in it’s simplest form for a few days to get best results. Good luck!

  12. Elena says:

    What do you think about intermittent fasting and the egg fast? I seem to perform at work at my best if I only have 2 cups of BPC, then wait to eat when I get home from work.
    I’ve been keto for about a month, but I need a kickstart.

    • KetoWoman says:

      My personal opinion is to work the egg fast into whatever schedule works for you and if you are not hungry don’t eat. So if IF works for you then do it.

  13. Ron says:

    What weight are you losing on egg fast. I lost 4 pounds in one day without a bowl movement. What 4 pounds did I lose? I can’t find any info on what is actually lost.

    • KetoWoman says:

      It depends on what you were doing before the egg fast. If you were doing the Standard American Diet (SAD) OR if you had a carb binge leading up to the Egg Fast, then those 4 pounds are likely water. But if you were already following LCHF/Keto and were using the Egg Fast as intended to break through a stubborn weight loss plateau, then there should be some fat loss there. People should always take their measurements before starting the Egg Fast. Hope you keep it going for a few days then transition very slowly back to LCHF.

  14. Vannessa Murillo says:

    Love your website, very informative please keep up the wonderful work! Would it be possible to join your FB group?

  15. Bolanle says:

    Can you pls approve me to join the Facebook group page?My name is Bolanle Fajemirokun ,Thank you.Love your page btw..you are awesome

  16. Elaine says:

    Thank you for posting this I will be looking for the facebook page. I went of keto woe due to a number of things for about a month. Ended up with aches and pans and fogy head again so decided to restart and found egg fast. This is my second day and so far no keto flu. (say prayers please.) and I’ve lost 2 pounds thank you so much.

    One note I don’t really eat much salt so I have been adding some to my BPC it has gotten rid of the bitter taste so no sweetner needed and my leg cramps have disappeared.

  17. Vonda says:

    I have a couple of questions 1 is is it okay to substitute some of your whole eggs for something like egg beaters or anything like that and also I am one of those people who doesn’t do well on coffee. I tend to be wide open for two days and then crash on the third day and unable to get motivated to do anything. My question is will a cup of green tea the acceptable on this diet? It doesn’t seem to hype me up as much as coffee

    • KetoWoman says:

      Coffee is completely optional, you can drink green tea or even just water. Whole real eggs are not optional. Egg beaters are not only not even real food, they don’t have the correct fat to protein ratio for the egg fast. There is no substitute for whole eggs.

    • Ginny says:

      For the fat with eggs, could I eat avocado instead of cheese or cream cheese?

  18. chinwe Nwaozuzu Muomalu says:

    Thanks so much for the information. Just stumbled on egg fast, and goggled it, and the face book page came up. I love eggs. Please can you add me to the group

    • KetoWoman says:

      I just looked and I did not see your name on the waiting list, please request membership again. Also there are a few egg fast groups so maybe you requested another one?

  19. halima Shade shaba says:

    Please here is my name. I have requested to join the egg fast Facebook group without response. Halima Shade shaba l appreciate all your helpful tips and advice concerning sticking to this lifestyle. I begin my journey on Monday March 14th. Looking forward to this. Thank you.

  20. Liz says:

    Hi there, wondering whether I could have ricotta cheese 1tbsp with my morning eggs? Or if I am having cheese it has to be cheese cheese?

  21. Tina says:

    Thank you. I use hwc in my coffee and wonder why on lchf diet I could not lose wt. now going to buy the Irish butter and coconut oil/ Nutiva and do that. Hope I begin to lose more weight.

  22. Joy says:

    Thank you for your recipes & meal plans! I requested to join the Egg Fast Facebook group a couple times and haven’t been added 🙁 I’ve recently joined some Keto groups, but I am not new to this WOE. I’ve hit a plateau for a couple months, but I’m feeling a little encouraged again. Thank You!!!!

  23. Melanie Ong says:

    Hello everyone! I did the egg fast last Monday and lost 10 lbs within Five days. Today is Day 5. It really works!
    Thanks KetoWoman for this article 🙂

  24. Sallie lodge says:

    Thanks Ketowoman for your patience in answering all our relentless questions. …love your work

  25. Dawn says:

    I drink flavored water all day but it has artificial sweeteners so stop that? What about my bpc? No hwc or sweetner?

    • KetoWoman says:

      That’s correct. There is no HWC on the egg fast (a known staller for many people) and up to 3 servings of sweetener a day. So you’ll have to plan out how to use those 3 servings. Remember it’s only a few days! BTW, try your BPC like this: 16 oz coffee, 1 tbsp butter, 1 tbsp coconut oil, a touch of sweetener (I use 1/2 packet) and some cinnamon. Blend it up until frothy. Delicious!

  26. Frances McPherson says:

    Day 1 and I put on weight, can you eat too much?

    • KetoWoman says:

      I suppose that is possible. There’s so many factors such as what you ate the day before, how close to normal weight you are, hormones, medications.

  27. Frances McPherson says:

    Is cream cheese considered cheese or can it be a fat?

  28. Jill says:

    I am on day 3 of the egg fast. Silly me thought it would be a good idea to go back to a LCHF diet by starting with the egg fast first! Ugh, I think I am definitely in keto flu mode. Terrible headache, the runs (this started last night) and constant sick to my stomach. I must admit too, that the thoughts of eating another meal of eggs is also turning my stomach. I am going to try the apple cider vinegar before eating tonight – I hope this helps! I want to do at least a 4 day but I am running down quickly. On a much happier note I am down 5lbs as of this morning and that, makes this all worth while. 🙂

    • KetoWoman says:

      Oh it is a pretty harsh way to start LCHF! I’m not sure I could have done it that way because I even felt it when I was already low carb and tried the Egg Fast the first time. On the bright side, when you eat something else like salad, it will taste so good that you will feel like you are cheating! 🙂

      • Jill says:

        Yes, I gotta tell you I am looking forward to the transition phase and then onto a nice salad with a stuffed chicken breast 😉

        I am going to try, this coming Monday, to do the “4 week” Monday – Thursday Egg Fast then Friday – Sunday LCHF. I hope it works as good for me as it did for you 🙂

        By the way, I tried the vinegar idea and it worked!!! I was so happy! I still have the headache and absolutely NO energy but the yukky, burning tummy is gone!!! YAY!!!

        Have a great weekend!

  29. Sky says:

    Sorry I mean to say can I use olive oil instead of coconut oil?

    • KetoWoman says:

      Don’t use it instead of coconut oil, use it as well as. I really think it’s best for people to not use all one oil. So if you eat 6 eggs in a day, vary your fats by choosing butter, coconut oil and other pure oils. Coconut oil has those wonderful medium chain triglycerides and you don’t want to miss out on those!

  30. Mrs taylor says:

    Can you explain why heavy whipping cream is bad?? I have 2 tbsp in my coffee each morning. And in my tracker is doesn’t have any carbs or sugar. Just wondering why it’s bad? I have been on ketogenic diet for 2 months and lost 20lbs..but i do get stuck sometimes with plateaus.

    • KetoWoman says:

      You can do that if you like after the egg fast. It’s only 3-5 days without it. The egg fast works because it eliminates everything except a few very select foods and heavy cream is not one of the allowed foods. You could make the same argument for avocado or rib eye steak. They are not ‘bad’, they are great foods on Keto and they are not on the egg fast. I will say this, HWC seems to be one of those things that people struggle to give up. And I was one of them. And I hear people say over and over again, that giving up HWC allowed them to progress further. Also one thing to know about trackers is that they often will say something has no carbs when it has .5 carbs or less. HWC is not a pure fat like butter or coconut oil. Hope that helps!

  31. Kim says:

    I am starting LCHF today, I have decided to start with the egg fast, is this OK.

    • KetoWoman says:

      Well it’s certainly ok but you could be in for a good dose of what we call Keto Flu. So keep that in mind if you are feeling very sick on Day 2 or 3! It’s only temporary and you will feel better in a few days.

  32. Ann says:

    Can you drink green tea or is it only the coffee and diet soda? Is there a limit on caffeine? Drink a lot of green tea nothing added to it

  33. Ana Perry says:

    would a little cream (0 carb) be ok in coffee. My daughters and I started this yesterday. She won’t drink coffee without cream

    • KetoWoman says:

      Cream is likely one of the main culprits in causing people to stall on their low carb weight loss plan. It’s not on the Egg fast. She could maybe not drink the coffee while on the Egg Fast, then she won’t need the cream. 🙂

    • Lia says:

      If she/you tries/try the bullet proof coffee cream will not needed. It’s delicious and creamy due to the coconut and grass fed (unsalted!) Butter. The butter takes the place of cream. 🙂

  34. Tracy says:

    Hi there.
    Started egg fast today but am battling find full cream cottage cheese and cream cheese. They all seem to be low fat. Is this a problem?

    • KetoWoman says:

      Don’t worry about the cottage cheese because it’s not allowed. No Philedelphia cream cheese in a brick? Cheese is just optional anyways and you should use as little as possible for best results. So I’m sure that a couple ounces of low fat cream cheese won’t hurt if that is all you can get.

  35. Kobus Brummer says:

    I have been on the LCHF “diet” for about four months and have lost 25kg over that time. I have strayed on a few occasions at social events with friends over weekends but have managed to get back to the LCHF “diet” easily enough through intermittent fasting. Because of getting stuck on a plateau I started the egg fast two days ago while continuing with the intermittent fasting – I generally do not eat before 10.00 and have my dinner at the latest 17h00 and have only two meals, one snack and a Bullet Coffee a day.Is it a problem not sticking strictly to the quantity of eggs per day while continuing the intermittent fasting? Rather than losing weight I have gained over the last two days

    • KetoWoman says:

      I don’t think that should have caused a weight gain! But not knowing anything about you and where you are at age, medical, hormone, etc status, I can’t really offer any suggestions. I do know that sometimes plateaus are normal and your body might need to catch up. If it’s been many weeks, then something like the egg fast works due to cleaning up all the extras and the carb creep.

  36. Melissa says:

    Not sure if any one asked this yet, but can I use coconut cream (from unsweetened coconut milk) in place of cream cheese? I’m super excited to try this egg fast! I’ve been stuck at this weight for way too long! 🙂

    • KetoWoman says:

      No coconut cream, no substitutions of any kind. Honestly I think that is why it works so well. It’s only 3-5 days, we just bite the bullet and do it!

      • Melissa says:

        OK! Great to know! I followed the plan yesterday, except I did have some spinach in one of my omelettes. Got up and I weighed a pound less! Whooo Hoo!! 😀
        I’ll be sticking to the plan for 5 days, excited to see the results!

  37. Val9955 says:

    I must fit into a bridesmaid dress two weeks after vacation. On vacation I put on about 5 lbs. I began the egg fast 3 days ago. I have lost 4 lbs! This diet def works to jump start weight loss and get back in ketosis fast!

  38. Debbie says:

    Hello! I have been on Keto for about three weeks now and am just starting the egg fast.
    Am I allowed to substitute margarine for butter and in regards to some of the recipes I am finding – I see there is a lettuce leaf you can wrap the omelette in, add mayo etc. I didn’t think on this diet we are allowed anything but eggs, butter and cheese. Please let me know if we are!!!

    Question 2. If I am wanting to do this straight by the book – ie: to lose as much weight as possible. Am I only allowed one cup of coffee a day. And if I am allowed more than one can I make it bulletproof or just black.

    Question 3 I use vega sport sustain in my water. My trainer has researched this electrolyte and commented that he can’t find anything wrong with me taking it for our goals of no added sugar but was worried that because it is sweet it may tell my brain to release insulin?

    Thank you.

    • KetoWoman says:

      Margarine is evil! I know that seems like an extreme statement but it is a manufactured food like product. Get butter today! 🙂
      You can have more coffee if you want, some people think coffee (even black) slows down weight loss. I haven’t got there yet! You can make it bullet proof as long as you only use butter, coconut oil and eggs in it. No HWC! Get rid of that vega sport drink, sorry but it may be sugar free but yes your trainer is correct about the constant ‘sweet’ stimulation. Also other sketchy chemicals in it. Good luck!

  39. Gayle says:

    I am on day 3 of the egg fast. Experiencing terrible indigestion. I don’t know if it’s all that butter or maybe the coffee. Any thoughts?

    • KetoWoman says:

      It’s part of the detox for some of us. I had it and I already was LCHF before that. Some people use baking soda to help it. I used sugar free Tums. Hope you feel better soon .

      • Fran says:

        Usually apple cider vinegar KILLS my reflux in seconds.

        • KetoWoman says:

          Yes, I’ve heard that works for a lot of people. I need to get over my fear of it tasting bad and try that. Do you dilute it?

        • Hazel says:

          Very smart.

          What is often called by doctors “too much stomach acid” is LOW stomach acid, meaning not enough to digest food in the stomach.
          Those for whom 1 tsp of vinegar in 2 oz (2 tablespoons) of water fixes the problem likely have low stomach acid; they should never use antacids!

          A home test for low stomach acid is that given above. If the tester’s problem gets worse after ingesting a little acid (vinegar), he/she may truly have too much stomach acid.

          Doctors often suggest antacids without testing, and commercials abound. But using antacids can give users serious health problems (because we can’t digest and use food nutrients unless we actually digest them).

          • Rosemary says:

            This is an excellent reply. I intend going on the Egg fast very soon, just clearing the old fridge. You are correct about older people not having enough stomach acid. I have no gall bladder (emerg surgery Dec ’12) and since then have had horrible problems with weight and have hiatus hernia, I have tried HCL but found it created more problems. Its a constant balancing act between Omeprazole and ant acids. Sometimes in bed I sit up quickly as my throat burns and want to sick. The more low carb I go the problem gets worse to.

  40. Linda says:

    I get up extremely early for work (3:30 a.m.) and eat lchf. I also do intermittent fasting daily. I don’t eat until around 1 pm. Would that be a problem while doing an egg fast?

  41. Tamara says:

    What happens if you’re not see weight loss on the Egg Fast Diet? I’m at day three and nothing. Thoughts?

    • KetoWoman says:

      There are so many things that can affect this and it doesn’t work for 100% of people who try it. Things like medications, age, activity level, hormones, illnesses, how many pounds away from normal. And if people are following low fat or low calorie diets and try the egg fast, they will often not lose either. Sorry I can’t say why you didn’t lose but those are a few ideas.

  42. Muddygurl says:

    I followed LC since Feb 1, lost 26 pounds almost easily, then had a severe abdominal flu May 25th…have not lost since–9 weeks!! so today is the first day of the egg fast. Partly I am stuck due to ongoing long term pain(DrJ. Fung claims “non-diet” issues keep us from losing) AND I am at my former long time weight, so my body fights going lower. [Notice I separate” body” from “mind”, as I AM doing LC strictly..but my body is like a bratty kid!!!

    DAY 1—–
    I goofed already and had HWC in my 2 coffees..so am starting over tomorrow. Will try seeing if I can tolerate the BPC oil & butter version..if not I’ll just do tea. MCT oil is great, but coconut flavored coffee?ugh.

    I also did a 3 egg scramble with butter on top,3 tbl of shredded cheese was great and coconut oil in the fry pan.. ( I use measuring spoons for everything, easy to measure shredded cheese that way.

    i love string cheese, and keep a 24 pack on hand all the time. I tried using a tbl of mayo and dipping my string cheese into that, along with HB egg… I am certain I will be sick of them in 5 days..but as a stall breaker…I’m IN!

    • KetoWoman says:

      I don’t get a coconut taste in my coffee, I am using Nutiva. I hear that some coconut oils have a stronger coconut taste than others. Good luck on Day 2 and thanks for checking in! 🙂

    • Lia says:

      Refined will not taste like coconut. Unrefined will have a little coconut flavor. Unrefined/Virgin us better for you. I use unrefined Try it once. I have turned so many people on to bulletproof who have said “ew, coconut ok and butter? !” Who have thanked me after! It’s not for everyone but you will more likely be surprised at how yum it is. Be sure your grassfed butter is unsalted.

  43. A.Miguel says:

    hi just wanna ask if do i need to walk evry time i need to eat eg in a day?thanks

  44. Sevi says:

    Hi,

    I have stalled on keto, I am not overweight (54 kilos at 1.69m) but I am used to weighing around the 51 kilos. I think the weightgain comes from a combination of over -excercising (running) in the past 2 years and falling off the keto wagon 3 times in the past 6 months.

    I’d like to try the egg fast (I love eggs :-)) but I am also lactose intolerant. Would I be okay substituting the cheese with goat’s cheese and substituting the butter with coconut oil? I am already used to eating sugarless mayonaise.

    • KetoWoman says:

      Oh yes absolutely! In fact, cheese is optional so you don’t have to eat it all. In the egg fast group we have been finding that people do best not having too much cheese, maybe 4 ounces a day max. As for the butter, a lot of lactose intolerant people seem to be able to tolerate Kerrygold. But coconut oil is just fine too. Good luck!

  45. Arlene says:

    question. This seems to be a lot of fat intake when you search nutrients on a daily meal plan of eggs and butter etc. and yet you still lose that weight. ??

      Yup! It’s the magic of Keto or LCHF (Low Carb High Fat). It’s not the fat that makes us fat, it’s the carbs. Even so called good ones.

    Why is the egg fast just considered a fast? When people eat only meat for years? Why can’t a person eat only eggs and an orange for the vitamin C and be fine till we lose 100 pounds?

    • KetoWoman says:

      I have no idea! I’m sure one could survive on that just fine. We like to label things for simplicity I think, but at the same time it can complicate things. Thanks for your comment.

    can we drink regular black coffee during the day? Im a coffee addict 🙂

  48. Jasmine says:

    So, we are allowed nothing else?! No fruits or even veggies? Just eggs, cheese, and butter and water basically?

    • KetoWoman says:

      That is correct! It’s a short term fast and completely voluntary! If you are doing LCHF and still losing weight, then no need for the egg fast.

    The rules say I must eat an egg ,30 minutes after waking. But I take meds that I have take then wait an hour before eating. Would it still work if I waited the hour

  51. Magdalena says:

    Hi, I’ve been following Keto for a while now. Can I do egg fast every other day for better results? Or can you only benefit from that if doing egg fast for more days in the row?

  52. Carly says:

    Can I consume sugar free monster drinks while on this fast? Can you have too many eggs?

    • KetoWoman says:

      Yes, you could have too many eggs. Eat between 6 and 12 for best results. While technically you could have up to 3 sugar free drinks a day while on the fast, it might be a good time to evaluate all habits. The fast is designed to rid yourself of all but the basics, and get down to the most basic lowest level of low carb high fat eating. There are studies that show that even diet drinks cause us to crave more. Just something to consider. Good luck!

  53. Landie says:

    Is there other benefits in the egg fast – would i be able to follow it say for 3 days prior to a race for energy?

    • KetoWoman says:

      oh gee, not really sure about that one. Some people in the group report good energy, but you would have to already be adapted to using fat as primary source of fuel instead of glucose. So it really depends.

    Cool. One question…How do you know how much an ounce of cheese is? I can measuree in tablespoons or cups. Grated or whole. Thanks.

  55. Erica Hutchison says:

    I am 64 and weigh 120kg and am 171.5cm.
    We are also going to New Zealand for 3 months so would like to continue on the plan while we are there, the transit time which is going to be a challenge is 34 hrs. I am diabetic so thats the menue they will give me in flight

    • KetoWoman says:

      I would not try to do the egg fast while away from home, it’s only meant to break a weight loss plateau for people who are already following low carb or LCFH. I would recommend just sticking to basic low carb as best you can while away. Low carb is an excellent way to help with your diabetes.

  56. Erica Hutchison says:

    Hi there, I have been Banting for about 3 months now and am loosing cm not kg so have been told to try the egg fast.
    I have read up what I can, but need to know apart from the required number of eggs etc, and some cheese and butter, is there anything else I can have like veg or apples? I cant find the sugested list of foods permitted.
    Any help would be appreciated.

    • KetoWoman says:

      Hi Erica. The egg fast is just that, a fast. It is basically eggs, butter and cheese (no fruits and veg) for 3 to 5 days and meant to break a plateau. Not really meant for ongoing weight loss. If you take a look at this ‘What is the Egg Fast’post, you can see what the parameters are.

  57. Yasmin Mustak says:

    Just want know how much weigh do you lose. Thank you

    • KetoWoman says:

      That is just impossible to say because everyone is different. In the Egg Fast FB group people lose everywhere from 1 pound to 10 pounds during the 3-5 day fast. But remember, this is not a regular way of eating, it’s simply meant as a short term shake up to break your stall when already following a low carb diet. So if you have been the same weight for several weeks or months on LCHF and this causes you to break that stall and lose even just a couple pounds, then it’s a win.
