What is the Keto Egg Fast Diet?

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 the Keto egg fast diet.

One of the frustrating things that have happened to me is that my weight doing keto and low carb 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 keto egg fast! Depending on where you look, it is 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.

This is How I Fit the Egg Fast Into My Life

  1. I ate 7-8 eggs a day.
  2. 1 ate tablespoon of the following fats PER EACH EGG consumed (in order of my own preference):  Butter (grass-fed is nice but not necessary)A close up of coffee with fat,  Organic Extra Virgin Coconut OilWhat is the Keto egg fast diet? What can I eat on the Keto egg fast? What can you drink on the egg fast diet? How do you get a Keto egg fast to work? How many eggs a day on an egg fast? Get all the answers you need here! , mayonnaise (any type that is zero carb). I limit my mayo to 2 tbsp daily and try to do mostly butter and coconut oil. But avocado oil is nice sometimes.
  3. In the morning I made my EFC (Keto Egg fast coffee). I used 16 oz coffee, 1 teaspoon So Nourished sweetenerWhat is the Keto egg fast diet? What can I eat on the Keto egg fast? What can you drink on the egg fast diet? How do you get a Keto egg fast to work? How many eggs a day on an egg fast? Get all the answers you need here!, 1 tbsp coconut oil and 1 tbsp butter. I prefer to blend this in my blender. 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 but feel free to throw 2 eggs into that blender!
  4. I only eat if I am hungry.
  5. Cheese (real cheese, not processed) is allowed but  I find that I can only eat 4 ounces cheese max for the day or even this egg fast stalls me!
  6. I ate a minimum of 6 eggs daily to get enough protein
  7. I tried to get the best quality eggs that I could find and afford
  8. I tried to not eat within three hours of bedtime (or the heartburn is REAL!)
  9. I kept myself to 3 servings of sweeteners in a day MAX! This can be in the form of diet soda or those skinny syrups or drops of Stevia. I do like to use the Skinny Syrups because 2 tbsp is one serving and I can make 2 tbsp go a long way! Try out Jordon’s Skinny Syrups and see all the crazy amazing flavors they have!

So there you have it, my very own custom tailored version of the keto egg diet fast! In my next post, I will share my own results of breaking my Keto stall.

  1. 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?

  2. 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.

  3. 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!!!!

    1. Wow, that’s awesome! I think this is where I’m supposed to say ‘Results not typical’ in fine print of course! But way to go!

    1. 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!

    1. 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.

  4. 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. :)

    1. 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! :-)

      1. 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!

    1. 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!

  5. 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.

    1. 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!

    1. 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.

  6. 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

    1. 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. :-)

    2. 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. :)

      1. I much prefer salted butter in my bullet proof coffee! The salt in the butter enhances the other flavors in the coffee and in my opinion makes it require less stevia/sweeteners.

  7. 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?

    1. 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.

  8. 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

    1. 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.

  9. 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! :-)

    1. 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!

      1. 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!! :D
        I’ll be sticking to the plan for 5 days, excited to see the results!

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

    1. 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!

      1. Some foods are listed sugar free and have no carbs but are mostly high fructose corn syrup, take for instance sugar free cofee creamer. 1st ingredient water, 2nd ingredient high fructose corn syrup. But it’s sugar free.

  12. 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?

    1. 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 .

        1. 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?

          1. Most times this works for me. yes you dilute it. Its especially helpful just before meals as it helps with food digestion to and weight.
            “There is also good science behind why apple cider vinegar would encourage weight loss even more effectively than eating raw apples. In general, acids help with the digestion of protein, the building blocks for some of our hormones, especially growth hormone. We’ve seen how this hormone is instrumental in breaking down fat cells. By increasing the acid present in your stomach before a meal, you’ll ensure the chances for thorough digestion and increase the availability of protein for hormone synthesis.”

        2. 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).

          1. 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.
