Egg Fast Diet Plan – Day 3

Egg Fast Diet Plan Day3Egg Fast Diet Plan – Day 3

Wow, what a day this was!  Day 3 started with me sleeping in by 1 hour and 15 minutes!  And this was the first day that my boss was back from vacation.  No way was he going to beat me into the office!

I am so thankful that in my fridge was a bowl full of boiled eggs and and a tupperware container of cream cheese muffins.  I didn’t get to make my own coffee this morning, I stopped at Timmies near my office and got a black coffee.

So about the coffee, I actually drink it black now most of the time.  The only reason I make the lattes while I’m

Timmies Black!

on the Egg Fast diet plan is because it makes it easy to use up those fats!  Between the Egg Fast and doing a 30 day Zero Carb experiment, I managed to kick both the HWC and splenda habit.  I have used a little bit of sweetener during this egg fast, but the 1-2 servings a day is a tiny fraction of what I used to have.

So here is the breakdown of Egg Fast Diet Plan Day 3

6:45am – Tim Hortons large black coffee!  Nothing more I can say there, and I did beat my boss to work.  🙂

Boiled Eggs with butter

8:30am – 3 boiled eggs chopped topped with 2 tbsp butter.  I microwaved for 30 seconds to warm it a bit.  It was actually quite divine.

12:30pm – 3 cream cheese muffins.  These were the muffins that I made yesterday on Day 2.  With my muffin pan, 3 muffins = 2 eggs, 2 cheese and 2 fat.  So happy to have those in the fridge for these emergency situations.

5:30pm – Oopsie bread with scrambled egg topping.  See how fancy I made them!?  Theymade me feel swishy just having them on my plate!

Fancy Oopsies!

Here is how I made the Oopsies.  You will need:

  • 3 eggs
  • 3 ounce cream cheese
  • 2 bowls
  • egg beater
  • donut pan.  (I actually was inspired by fellow Egg Fast group admin Elizabeth, who makes hers in a whoopie pan.  It made them look so beautiful!)

Instructions for Oopsies:

  1. Preheat oven to 300
  2. Seperate egg whites into one bowl and put yolks into the other bowl.
  3. Beat egg whites on high speed until stiff peaks form, set aside
  4. Rinse off beaters and beat cream cheese and egg yolks on low speed until smooth.
  5. With a rubber spatula, fold the egg yolk mixture in the egg whites gently until incorporated.
  6. Spread the mixture into a donut pan (or a whoopie pan will work)
  7. Bake for 30 minutes, and then let cool.

What I did with mine is scramble an egg in butter, and then I put the egg in the little indentations from the donut pan.  I ate 4 of them which equaled 1.5 eggs (half the recipe), 1.5 cheese and 1 egg scrambled in 1 tbsp butter.

After eating dinner I had the realization that because I slept in and drank black coffee, I was short

egg fast fat bombs

My little fat bombs

on fats.  So I made some quick fat bombs in the freezer from yet another great idea that I read in the EF group.  I melted 2 tbsp coconut oil, 2 tbsp butter and 1 teaspoon sugar free salted caramel Torani.  They are in the freezer right now.  I will update this post tomorrow with a picture and a verdict of what I thought of them!

UPDATE:  Ok the fat bombs look pretty but were too salty for my taste.  I do like the sweet/salt flavor combination but I think using salted butter and salted caramel together was too much.  On the good side, they were nice and creamy and something to savour and let melt in my mouth.  I will be experimenting with this one for sure.

So the last thing that happened is that my brother in law called and is arriving in town tomorrow afternoon.  I may not be able to get a post together and I may also have a transition meal, depending on when he arrives.  More to unfold!

    Hi everyone, It works, it works, it really works!!!! I have been stalled for over a month and not only that, I weighed my self last Friday and discovered that I had gained 2 pounds. I was devastated!!! So I found Keto woman’s egg fast, followed it for 3 days and just got on the scale and lost a whopping 4 pounds!!!! woohoo!!!!! I will carry on till Friday, then the weekend transition back to LC and take it from there! Good luck every one!!!!! Happy Egg Fasting!!!!! SUE

  2. Tina says:

    Can I have lemon or lime juice and fresh ginger in my water?

    • KetoWoman says:

      Well you’ll have to decide that for yourself. These things are not egg fast protocol and I tend to follow things exactly for best results. It’s hard to know what effect, if any they will have.

  3. Barb Baker says:

    Hi for your waffles (2 eggs 2 tbs mayo) does the mayo count as fat because I saw a post where you drizzle butter over them?

    • KetoWoman says:

      Yes, the mayo counts as fat. If you use another tbsp butter to drizzle over top, then you need another egg someplace in your day to offset that. Use the Egg Fast Tracker to keep track on your phone, it makes it easier.

  4. Jeneil says:

    How long can you do the Egg fast? You posted about doing it for 3 days but is that as long as you can do it? What would happen if I do it for a week?

  5. Wendy Smith says:

    How much did you lose on your 3 day egg fast?

    • KetoWoman says:

      Hmmm, this post is a year old at least so I can’t remember exactly. But I always lose at least 5 pounds whenever I do the EF for 3 days. I hope that helps!

  6. Teresa says:

    Can I do this diet being lactose intolerant, and intolerant to egg yolks, and egg whites

    • KetoWoman says:

      So in other words you are intolerant to eggs. I would say probably not unfortunately! Maybe try the Fat Fast instead? Or Alternate Day Fasting?

  7. Merissa Porter says:

    How many fat bombs does your recipe make? And how many fat bombs per egg consumption on the egg fast diet?

    • KetoWoman says:

      That will depend on the size of your molds! I try to divide evenly to make it easy to calculate so it helps to have silicon molds of various sizes around. In this case I divided it up into 8 hearts, which meant that with this recipe 2 hearts equal 1 tbsp fat. So with my mold, 2 fat bombs per egg. See, my Mom was right, I would need that math someday! 🙂

  8. Bonnie Newman says:

    I do not expect you to be an expert nutritionist on everything, but maybe you could steer me in the right direction. I take 100,000 Units of Vitamin D3/ wk, 650mg of iron/day, and 15mg of meloxicam/ day (all per prescription), plus a Cintrum Silver. None of the bottles give information as to whether there are carbs, fat, etc in them. I am trying to find the answer to the fat/carb questions. Do you know of a way I can find that information? I have read that supplements and medications can cause problems with weight loss.

    • KetoWoman says:

      You are right, it’s hard to find out and I wish they had to put carb counts on the label. The best way to do it to use google and the exact name of your product. So if it’s Jamieson Vitamin D for example, go to the Google search bar and type in How many carbs in Jamieson Vitamin D? That should get you the answer. Hope that helps!

    Today, no more cheese. I’m going to eat more meat with fat and still try to keep my carbs at around 5g. You can’t imagine how much I’ve learned from you. I am very grateful to you! Even cutting out cheese for the 2nd half of yesterday really helped me. I lost another .8 lbs! You’re AWESOME!

  10. Terri says:

    Hey! I’m back. Seems that even though I’ve been watching my carbs and protein intake for the last two weeks, keeping my carbs to around 5% and my protein is hard to gauge, but keeping really small portions…I’ve stalled again. I really don’t want to go back to the strict egg fast. So I was wondering what your thoughts are on a frittata. We used 10 eggs, about 1 ½ c. of cheddar, ¼ c. red onion, ½-1 c. bacon ends (lots of fat) and a ½ c. sliced shrooms. If I microwave it with butter, will that possibly help me break the stall again or are there just too many other things in it? I mean, if I eat like a ¼ cup slice each time for my meals? I know it’s not a science and just eggs, butter and cheese are the best but I just have a hard time with that now because I didn’t LOVE eggs to begin with and I burned out after the 4 days. Thanks in advance for any advice you can offer.

    • KetoWoman says:

      This is a little hard because I don’t have much info, like how close are you to goal weight, medications, what are those carbs that make up the 5%, etc. Also 5% of what? If you eat 2000 calories and 5% are carbs, that might be too many carbs! But generally speaking, if you were able to lose weight on the Egg Fast, but not able to lose weight on your normal eating program, then you want your normal eating program to as much like the egg fast as possible. Doesn’t have to be eggs, it could be other protein. I hope that makes sense and helps a bit.

      • Terri says:

        No, not a 2,000 cal diet at all. I’m mostly eating cheeses and (still) eggs, some chicken, some bacon and very few veggies. When I eat veggies like chives, or shrooms (which I consider a veg), they’re drowned in butter. I’m getting as zero carb as I can. When any food says that the carbs for it is like 1.2g or whatever per serving, I’m keeping as close to 5g as possible for the whole day. So I guess I said 5%, but it’s really 5g. I love chicken so even though it’s white meat, when I eat it, I still add butter to about an ounce/ounce proportion. And yes! You’re explanation makes sense. So thank you!

        • Terri says:

          I forgot to tell you, I’m within 6 lbs of my goal weight and no medications. And my only carbs are those few in the small portions of veggies that I have. Like the mushrooms…if a ½ cup of sliced shrooms is approximately 1.2g carbs for that whole frittata up there, and I’m only eating about a cup’s worth of the frittata each meal, I can keep up with it by adding all the carbs from them, the onion, and the tiny bit in the eggs, then divide by the 10 slices (about a cup each) that I divided it up into. Also, the info you mentioned made me rethink my protein. As of yesterday, I have begun to see the scales going down again. I only had about 2 or 3 g of protein yesterday.

          • KetoWoman says:

            ok, 6 pounds to go only so yes, this is challenge for you! Are you sure you only had 2 or 3 g of protein, that seems like nothing!

        • KetoWoman says:

          Cheese is a known staller so that would be the first change I would look at.

          • Terri says:

            Cheese has been a big part of my keto/20 lb challenge. I just got totally sick of eggs. I still get one down in the mornings within 30 minutes of waking up but, ugh. Other than eggs and cheese OR just eating a stick of butter (lol. jk), what should I do? I got down another 3 but they came right back. I should be happy that I have basically lost 14-17 lbs (it fluctuates) but really want to get down to my -20 from where I started. I try to keep protein to a real minimum but not sure if that ¼ c. is hurting or helping.

          • KetoWoman says:

            Not sure if you want to hear this but I think if you got your protein from meat instead of cheese you might have a better chance of reaching your goal. Cheese is well known for being an issue for people trying to lose that last pounds. Think about it! 🙂

    How do you store the leftover oopsies? Do you reheat by toasting or microwaving?

    A BIG thanks for sharing all of the details – I think this variety will help me greatly during my next EF.

    • KetoWoman says:

      I keep them in my fridge. Luckily I have a toaster oven so they are super easy to reheat in there and they reheat perfectly. I have not tried reheating in the microwave. And you’re welcome! 🙂
