My Keto Egg Fast RESULTS!

These are the results I got from following the Keto Egg Fast Diet!

Keep in mind that I am an ultra slow loser and that I only followed this boiled egg fast diet for 3-4 days a week and then regular LCHF Keto for the rest of the week.

The bottom line is that following the egg fast diet did break my stall! (Be sure to read this whole article because I updated my ‘Three Years Later’ results at the bottom!

Not sure what the Egg Fast is?

Read my egg fast diet review article:  What is the Egg Fast?

Before and After Egg Fast Results Week 1:

Tuesday morning after Easter weekend I weighed:  264.1  Blecchh!

I followed the 3 day egg diet plan Tues-Thursday. Friday May 2 I weighed 254.4 for a total loss of 9.7 pounds!

Egg Fast Week 2:

After going back to regular Keto from Friday to Sunday, I was back up 3 pounds to 257.4 pounds, which I was told was to be expected.

Followed Egg Fast Diet Monday to Thursday. Friday May 9 weight 255.4. Total net loss 8.7 pounds.

2 week egg diet results so far is 8.7lbs

Egg Fast Week 3:

Followed Keto from Friday May 9 to Sunday May 11. Went back to Egg Fast Diet on Monday May 12.

I decided to try it for a full 5 days, which for me turned out to be a tactical error. Friday morning weight was 251.5 for a total loss of 12.6 pounds.

But I was so ‘egged out’ after 5 days and it was a long weekend here in Canada, and I ended up eating and drinking outside of Keto and by Tuesday May 20 I was up 5 pounds to 256.5. 

I went back on the egg fast diet for 3 days only and lost 6 pounds in that 3 days. Friday May 23 morning weight was 250.5 for a total net loss of 13.6 pounds.

After 3 weeks Egg Fast Diet Results : 13.6 lbs

Egg Fast Week 4: 

I went back to Keto over this past weekend and today is Monday May 26. 

I am up one pound and am regular Keto still today. Tomorrow I will be going back on the egg fast diet for at least 3 days, maybe 4.

So after being stalled for almost 4 months, this egg fast diet has helped me lose again. 

Can you do the Egg Fast During the Week and Keto on the Weekends?

Absolutely!

Look everyone!  I wrote a page called How to Transition from Egg Fast to Keto because so many people wanted clear guidelines and were freaking out at the fluctuations.  But it’s only a guide!  You have to make this work for YOU!

I really like being on the Egg Fast during the week and doing Keto on the weekends.

It just makes it easier to do and I don’t mind the bit of weight gain because my weight fluctuates up and down on a daily basis anyways and I was only weighing myself this often so that I could see what was happening in order to track the pattern. 

Now that I know, I am going back to just weighing once a week on Monday mornings.

Final Egg Diet Results: 15.7lbs!

I have to feel pretty good about these egg fast results for the following reasons:

  • I am a slow loser
  • There were a few very rough days where I cheated over the long weekend
  • I did full keto on my days off, there was no transition plan

Here is a basic 3 day egg diet menu to help you with meal planning:

Three days of Keto Egg Fast menu and recipe ideas.

What does my typical daily menu plan look like on the Egg Fast Diet?

Please keep in mind that these are the foods that I like and you can make up your own menu plan as long as you follow the Keto Egg Fast Rules.

Meal 1: Bullet Proof Coffee : 16 oz of coffee in the blender with 1 tbsp butter and 1 tbsp coconut oil and 1 packet Sweet Leaf stevia

Keto Egg Fast Coffee - So easy and delicious way to start your keto morning!

  • Meal 2: 2 eggs scrambled or fried in 1 tbsp butter. Check this method to make perfect sunny side up eggs
  • Meal 3: 3 hard boiled eggs mashed with 2 tbsp mayonnaise
  • Snack at work: 2 oz hard cheese (I like the natural Kerrygold Dubliner cheese)
  • Meal 4: omelette made with 2 eggs and 1 or 2 oz cheese. Cooked in 1 tbsp butter and then I add another tbsp. butter on top when it’s done.
  • OR I eat Alternate Meal 4Low Carb Waffles with 2 tbsp butter on top
  • Snack only if hungry ( 1 or 2 oz cheese)

Total for the day:  7 eggs, 7 tbsp fat (2 mayo, 1 coconut oil, 4 butter), 6 oz cheese but usually only 4 or 5.

As you can see I kept it pretty simple but as the days go on you need some variety! So I have made up some tasty egg fast diet recipes. You can get a list of my favorite egg fast recipes here. Just scroll down about halfway to see them.

Egg Diet Results after Three Years

Update June 2017! The above article was written after my 1st attempt at the Egg Fast in 2014.

Since then I have gone on to lose another 50 pounds and I give all the thanks for that to the Egg Fast for teaching me what my own stalling foods are. I’ve explained more below.

My Keto Egg Fast Diet Results 3 Years Later and What I Learned!

So 3 years later (June 2017) here is what I have learned that stalls me on Keto:

  • I ate too many fat bombs
  • HWC (heavy cream) is not my friend
  • Cheese is not my friend but I can’t eliminate it completely and keep my sanity. But it is now a once in awhile thing.
  • Sweeteners. I used to rack up many a day, like more than a dozen packets. Now they are for special occasions only.
  • Real whole foods really are the best things to eat, not shakes, bars and processed low carb foods

And the result of making these changes is that I am just a few pounds away from my teenager weight and I am in my late 50’s! Total weight loss now is 110 pounds!

Egg Fast Tracker App:  This is a free app for Android that helps you keep track of your Egg to Fats ratios, plus your water and cheese consumption. Install the Egg Fast Tracker app here.

Update: When I wrote this post I did not know how to properly transition from Egg Fast back to regular Keto

  1. I was wondering if there was a day 4&5? I love this and am starting today. I’ve done an egg fast in the past where I just ate boiled eggs and that got boring fast!! I love this and think it’s great!

    1. no, I never did do that! I’m thinking I need to completely revamp this and do it all on one sheet, like a 5 day plan. Since I did these plans, there are so many new recipes to add!

  2. Nancy Anderson

    I don’t have a question- you’ve covered all of this really well. I just wanted to say thanks so much for making all this info available! I’m so happy I found your site!

  3. Coffee is optional and just a convenient way to get fats in. You could use tea or you could simply use the fats in some other way like in fat bombs.

    1. I think a small sprinkle of chives to make it look pretty would be fine! Not a 1/2 cup or anything, mind you! :-)

  4. I just started this today! Have been stalled for about 3mo, got frustrated and ate 4 pieces of pizza yesterday. (dumb move) moving on, i hope this helps. Love your info, thank you.

    1. Hey we all do this from time to time, I totally get it! I told myself a long time ago that if I screw up, just start again. After all, what is the alternative? Best of luck to you!

  5. Great read! Can not wait to give this a try as I also am a slow looser and have stalled for the past 3 months. Congrats to the weight loss!

    1. I think it’s worth a try for anyone who is not getting results. It steered me back into the right direction, so I’m happy for that.

  6. Did you exercise to lose all those weight? If yes, what exercises do you do and how long? I have 40 lbs to lose but I can’t exercise due to lower back issues.

    1. No, I have been suffering with a knee issue since 2012 and did not and do not exercise. keeping my carbs super low is the only way I can keep my weight down.

  7. I’ve read that every time you eat, you spike insulin. So I only eat once or twice a day which isn’t hard since I’m fat adapted.
    Can you still do EF without the snacking and just eat more during your one to two meals to get the same results? I try not to reach my fat macros because I don’t want to have to burn the extra fat that I consume before my body starts burning my fat reserves. I only try to eat enough to just satisfy my hunger.

        1. I can’t really answer that for you! I know that if *I* ate that amount (15 eggs + 15 tbsp butter + 4 oz cheese would be the proper protocol), I would for sure gain weight.
          The better approach is to eat 2-3 eggs at a time with the 2-3 fats and then seeing where you are with hunger. Eating to hunger is important here. The minimum is 6 eggs and 6 fats with cheese being optional. Eat 6 eggs and 6 fats and above that, eat only to hunger.Hope that clarifies things.

      1. Congrats on the awesome weight loss! Do you still do the bullet-proof coffee? and if so do use the MCT oil or just plain coconut oil?
        Thanks for sharing

        1. I actually only do BPC while I am egg fasting now, otherwise I drink it either black or with unsweetened coconut milk. I do prefer coconut oil though.

  8. Hi, congratulations for your weight lost. I’n doing Keto and I’ve been stalling for about 3 weeks. I’m going to try the egg fast. I just want to know how many times you’ve been doing EF? I mean do you do it on a regular basis like once a month ? Thanks for your answer.

    1. I only do it once in awhile when I need a reboot and/or have stalled for awhile. Just think of it as a tool in your keto toolkit.

  9. Your typical egg fast day completely goes over my required daily intake of fat, protein and calories. I’m going to try it since I’ve been stalled these last few weeks. But just a little skeptical that going nearly 800 calories over will likely keep me stalled. Also, if I go so far over my protein, won’t that kick me out of ketosis and my body will start burning the glycogen?

    1. In the egg fast group we have on FB, people who eat 7-8 eggs with the matching fats get better results than the people who are eating only the minimum 6 eggs and 6 fats. People always start out by saying it won’t work because they are going over their normal daily allottment, but somehow it does! Try it for 5 days, you can always go back to what you are doing now.

  10. KetoWoman – You mentioned you followed the egg fast for 3-4 days and then LCHF for 3 days. Are you counting the LCHF for 3 days as your transition days?

    I was planning on doing a 5 day Egg Fast with 2 transition days and cycle that for an entire month.

    My question is …. are those two “transition days” enough transition time?

    1. At the time that I was doing that, I had not yet developed the ‘transition plan’. So yes, I was doing regular keto and I was happy with the results because I knew there would be a weight gain and that it wasn’t a fat gain, just water weight. The transition protocol does help to ‘lock in’ the weight loss a lot better than just doing regular keto. My opinion is that if you are doing 2 transition days (as per the protocol) then go back to egg fast, then yes, 2 days are enough.

  11. Thank you for so much great information! I’ve been doing keto since January and stall for the past 2-3 weeks. I am now on day three of EF and just love the cream cheese pancakes! My question: if you stay on the egg fast for say…30 days…do you continue to lose weight for 30 days? I plan on doing two more days then go onto the transition. Im curious if the weight loss plateaus, as well, if you stay on EF for so long?
    Thanks,

    1. You will not lose weight every day for 30 days no matter what you do. In addition, the goal of the egg fast is not weight loss, it is figuring out what makes you stall on keto. Good luck!

  12. Thanks Anita! Love your posts… I’ve just started back to blogging (on a new site for anonymity) and I’m back to LCHF/Keto as of this week, hopefully a lifestyle change permanently this time!

    I am going to try kickstarting my ketosis with an Egg Fast, and I’m wondering if you have had any experience with this? I have about 55 lbs to lose (again, sigh!)

    Did I miss your info on moving back to LCHF from Egg Fast?

    Thanks for all the great info, and congrats on an awesome success story – you are an inspiration!

      1. Thanks :) I should have done a search on your site for transition.

        Hoping my idea to kickstart ketosis with a quick 3 to 5 day Egg Fast won’t be an issue. Wish me luck.

        PS: I too have a knee injury – did you ever get your surgery? How did it go? I think I read yours was meniscus, where mine is a little that, but a lot of arthritis. (Old motorcycle accident)

        Thanks again for a great resource!

        1. 3-5 days will definitely get you into ketosis! My knee is also meniscus and arthritis combined. I had the one surgery to repair the meniscus but it didn’t help the pain or stiffness. A full knee replacement is required but they don’t like to do it until you are in agony :-(
          Good luck!

          1. I have to jump in here as I suffered a major knee injury in November (a double whammy – torn meniscus in front of knee plus the ligament at the side pulled from bone). After feeling sorry for myself for about 6 weeks, I launched into an intermittent fasting/keto diet and have lost 13 kg (28 pounds) since 6 January. I’m very impatient so will try the egg fast to speed things along even more :) Thanks for sharing!

          2. Thanks so much for your comment! The universe has been trying to tell me to try IF! I’m getting there!

          3. Thanks KetoWoman. Perhaps you don’t even really need surgery. Check out what Dr. John Bergman says about this.
            Btw, thanks so much for your info! I’m starting an egg fast today and hoping I’ll last until Friday.

        2. Can I asked if it worked? I have been “off” keto for several months and want to start again. I thought about kicking it off with an egg fast how did it work for you?

  13. Hi. I am researching keto, and came upon your post. I am actually scheduled to have weight loss surgery in 9 weeks, but would like to lose some on my own first. Is this something that would seem reasonable to do? I’ve only just started, but have been in ketosis for three days. I have friends who do keto who are helping, I have a hernia that I’m having complications with, and the surgeon said it would be unrealistic to think I could lose the amount of weight that need to, before complications from the hernia put my life in jeopardy.

    1. It is very reasonable to try and do keto before the surgery. I know many people who have had WLS and their doctors recommend low carb eating before and after the surgery. What have you got to lose?

  14. Just started this kind of plan a about 5 days ago, already down 10lbs! So excited, can’t wait to see my results in 3 more weeks.

      1. Hi ;) 1stly sorry for my English ;) and secondly am happy I had found r website ;) is very interesting ;) here is my quetion .. is possible to start EFD immediately or I have to be on low carb diet be4 start with EFD ? am in love with eggs lol so just hope it wil workng on me also ;) thank u very much for r reply in advance ..

        Iva from Austria

        1. It’s easier on your system to already be used to low carb eating. But some people do kick start a low carb plan with the egg fast, just be prepared for some keto flu. Read about keto flu here, that will most likely happen so as long as you are prepared! Good luck!

  15. Thanks KW I have been stalled for around three months on the testmax nutrition along with the exercise, this has been a good jumpstart for moving the weight again.
    I just finished the EF for 5 days and have been able to drop 4.5kg’s and for the past 2 days I’ve put back on 1kg so I’m happy with this and I’m pushing more towards a Keto diet than the one I’m currently on, thanks for the advice in your blog fortunately for myself I haven’t had the headaches due to eating fairly well before hand.
    cheers again Steve
    P.S. (so over cheese now)

    1. LOL! love your last line about being over cheese! There was a time I thought I couldn’t live with out it, now it’s just ‘meh’.

  16. I just finished the 3 day egg fast and followed it to the “T”…I just got on the scale and gained 2 lb.s…. needless to say I am very upset because I had lost 3lbs. doing the 5 Day Keto Soup Diet…this one is definitely not for me…:(

    1. No, definitely not for you because in this case you are using the egg fast diet incorrectly! It is only meant to be used when you have hit a keto weight loss stall, it is not a crash diet that will work when you jump around from diet to diet. If you just came off a soup diet where you lost 3 pounds, then your stall was already broken, there was no need to do an 85% fat egg fast. Save it for some day when you are truly stalled.

  17. Wow, I have been reading and searching about EF and your post will definitely help a lot. I was 180 pounds on 16 Oct 2017, and three days after I weighed today on 19 Oct 2017 I am down at 176.5. That’s 3.5 pounds. So I think EF really worked so far and it worked fast.

    Reading your post will definitely make me avoid the same mistakes as a beginner.

    Thank you and bravo for losing 110 pounds.

    May I know if you do a workout as well?

    1. I actually do not workout. I am still dealing with knee issues and so my only exercise is yard work. Thanks for reading my blog!
