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. I now normally just drink to my thirst which turns out to be about 4-6 glasses a day for me. I’ve learned it’s not good to force it. I do take a daily squirt of electrolyte drops in my morning coffee. Both these things (water and electrolytes) are beneficial to everyone so I encourage the practice!

  1. I have been doing all kinds of research on the egg fast – and find YOUR recipes and info my baseline for information ;-D
    I have found a couple of other egg fast recipes that call for a scoop of whey protein and would value your opinion on whether that would be acceptable or wise on the egg fast.
    Thank you SO MUCH for sharing all of this so freely with all of us ;-D

    1. Hmmm, I haven’t heard of that addition before! I always go back to Jimmy Moore’s original Egg fast guidelines which were that Eggs were the only source of protein. They are so perfectly balanced and the egg fast is so simple with just eggs and fats. Once you starting adding all the additions that people want, well that just makes it keto! So I guess that’s where I stand on it, keep it simple and it works great when you do!

    1. Whenever you feel the need to do a cleanup or a reset of your keto! There’s no set minimum or maximum time inbetween egg fasts.

  2. Hi, I’m interested to know if the Egg Fast would be appropriate to start a keto plan? I need a bare bones plan without needing to cook a variety of meals. I’m so busy that I’d rather not have to figure out a keto meal plan until I’m mentally prepared to put in the work. But I need to get going with something! I have no trouble fasting for 16 hours at a time….

  3. hi some clarification in the blog said that

    3. I must eat an egg no later than 30 minutes after waking.
    so if i do IF it is ok not to follow this?

    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.

    and also this? so it means i can make my own schedule? and as long as that i eat min of 6 eggs? its that right? sorry I’m just so confused and i really want to do the egg fast diet.thank you.

    1. It really is ok if you make some of your own decisions on this! What you are quoting there is simply the original Egg Fast creator’s (Jimmy Moore) personal rules around this. It really is fine to set your own schedule and do IF. Go for it!

  4. Why allow for diet soda as part of the program? I was very surprised to see that. You would be hard pressed to find one that doesn’t have a carcinogenic ingredient as a sweetener.

    1. I totally agree with you! The person who created this Egg Fast (Jimmy Moore) apparently had a diet soda issue and so 3 a day represented a major cutback for him. Just don’t have any!

  5. Can i get all 6 tbsp of fat kn the morning with my coffee and just focus on my hard boiled eggs w/salt the rest of the day.

    1. In theory yes! My concern would be tummy issues from consuming that much fat in one sitting. However if you are already fat adapted then you could probably handle it.

      1. Amanda L Haines

        Can you alternative egg fast with the ground beef and butter fast each day and still have the same results?

  6. Well I’ve been stuck for a while and even slipped up a couple of pounds so thought I’d give this a go…..dropped 6 pounds following this plan in 3 days — Pretty Happy with the results.

    Plan on taking 4 days off and eating a regular LCHF diet and then do this again for 3 days.

  7. I do intermittent fasting and count calories. The calories for this egg fast is through the roof for me. Do you think i would still lose weight?

    1. The minimum egg fast plan is 6 eggs + 6 fats which equals approximately 1100 calories. I don’t see that as through the roof, I think it is barely survival mode for the body!

        1. The cheese is optional and in the EF facebook group many people report having better results limiting their cheese to 1-2 ounces a day max and having 7-8 eggs with 7-8 fats.

    2. The calories won’t matter because your body will burn its own fat because of the very low carb amount. Check out Dr. Ken Berry on YouTube about calories.

  8. I am so confused. Nobody says anything about calories. Do you not count calories at all? Also you have to have 1tbs of fat per egg consumed, by do you have to an egg per 1tbs of fat? Meaning can I have more fat than eggs? Or equal no matter what?

    1. On Keto we generally don’t count calories unless there is an underlying reason to do so. This is not really a diet in that sense, it’s a way of breaking through a Keto or low carb stall. It’s a 1 to 1 ratio with the eggs and fat, so yes it’s always equal. Good luck!

    1. You really want to research this for your own situation. My cholesterol is fantastic and I have been doing low carb and keto with egg fasts for years. But I am not a doctor and I can’t give medical advice.

    2. I chose to do low carb because of my high cholesterol. It improved after only two months on it. I tried eating extra oatmeal in years past, but it didn’t help at all. I had always followed the low fat diet becuase I was a 14 yo learning to cook when my father, age 42, had a triple bypass in 1982. Last May, my 12 yo son was diagnosed as insulin resistant. His doctor said the low carb diet would be great for him. He lost 25 lbs in two months.

    3. I eat a lot of butter and eggs anyways because I do not eat meat. I live IF intermittent fasting and EF extended fasting and LCHF and after my last seven month I had bloodwork done for my annual examination and my doc was flabbergasted and told me that in his entire years in practice he never had a patient who had such an over the top excellent good cholesterol and my bad cholesterol was perfect too. So he was shocked because he did not think that my way of like was the best for my body :)

    1. You can do whatever you like! It’s not part of the egg fast so why not just follow it as is for a few days and then go back to adding in your favorite items.

  9. Hello, I made the waffles. turned out great, I put cinnamon and truvia on them…. Someone asked if cinnamon was allowed… I didnt even think of that. Is it? and what seasons if any are allowed?

    1. Spices are allowed but just be reasonable and use just enough. They do have a surprising number of carbs in them. Glad you like the waffles!

  10. I followed Dukan LCLF diet and lost 32 pounds. Then I stalled and lost faith. I am using egg fast to de-carb this week. Today was the first day. Other than BPC in the morning can you drink unsweetened tea with stevia?? Can you have more than 1 BPC a day?? Fat is equal to each egg but limit of 6 tablespoons a day or unlimited?? I have read several post and just want to clarify. Thank you for your help.

      1. I would use something with less sugar personally. I kind of like Smooth Move tea. Also using more coconut oil than butter does it for some because coconut oil is a natural laxative.

    1. The fat limit is tied to the number of eggs. If you consume 10 eggs than you consume 10 tbsp fats. The sweetener limit is 3 per day. You said Dukan LCHF. Does Dukan have a High fat version now? The last time I looked at it they were very low carb, very low fat. I’d be interested to know!

  11. Hello!! Amazing post, very detailed and well laid out! I’ve hit a plateau and then binged (bad bad bad, I know!) I plan on starting the egg diet tomorrow to adapt to no carbs & no sugar again (and hopefully beat my awful sugar addiction). I’m just curious though, I’ve been having a “coffee shake” for breakfast in the morning – cold coffee, cashew milk & 1 scoop of kaizen natural protein powder (1g carbs no fat no sugar), is it acceptable to add my 1 scoop to BPC?

    1. No, none of this is part of this egg fast. Of course, you can do whatever you like, but that is not this egg fast, that is some other diet. :-) Check out the Egg Fast FAQ!
