Okay so here is the diet.
Two eggs for breakfast
Two eggs for lunch
Two eggs for dinner
For a snack, make an egg milkshake with extra powdered egg.

There we go, now you are on your way to weight loss.
I am just kidding people hahaha. Unless you are Humpty Dumpty I do not know anyone who enjoys eggs that much.

The real diet consists of replacing one or two unhealthier foods from your normal meals with eggs. The most common kind are hard boiled eggs but they can be prepared any other ways like scrambled, sunny-side up, or over easy.

Examples of Egg Diets
The Keto Version: This diet is centered on the ketogenic diet which aims to cut the overall amount of carbohydrates one consumes in exchange for protein and healthy fats. This diet is believed to lower insulin, moderate blood sugar and put our body in a state of lipolysis (fat burning). This version of the diet has an added emphasis on eating eggs with lean sources of protein like fish & chicken. Vegetables are to be the main source of carbohydrates with some fruits (fruits are high in carbs because of the sugar in them).

The Egg and Fruit/Veggie Diet- For 2 weeks, a month, or whenever date you choose, the diet requires strict adherence to eating nothing but eggs for every meal with some fruits or vegetables.

THIS IS THE WORST DIET I have ever heard of.

Why on earth would someone put their body and mind through this kind of punishment?

I know I cannot be the only one who thinks eating a hardboiled egg with a slice grapefruit every meal sounds like a punishment reserved for the last layer of hell.
The Benefits of Eggs

Eggs are a low calorie food that provide nutrients like vitamins D, A, B6, B2, B12, iodine, selenium, omega-3 fatty acids, choline, phosphorous, protein and iron.
They have only 70 calories per egg, 6 grams of protein, and NO sugar or carbs.

Eggs are also very manageable to buy depending which kind you get. A dozen eggs can cost as little as $2 in some stores for the more generic brands of eggs.
Organically raised eggs can cost between $6-8 dollars but their benefits are well worth the cost.

Are Certain Eggs Better than Others?
Free pasture raised hen eggs have been shown to have twice as much vitamin E & omega-3 long chain fatty acids than commercially raised hens. There is also 38% more vitamin A in the farm raised eggs as well. Eggs grown on organic farms like Falster Farms have been shown to contain a nutrient called CoQ-10, an enzyme that our body uses in fighting cardiovascular disease and migraines.
This enzyme has been shown to be very effective especially for those who cannot tolerate statins (fat lowering drugs prescribed by doctors).

Why is this? Commercially raised chickens (like Tyson Farms) are fed foods that are not the most nutritious. This can include corn and meat products. There is also the fact that these hens are more likely to be given antibiotics to prevent disease, but can create “super bugs”.

This means that the bacteria become immune to the same antibiotics that are supposed to kill them. These hens can also be given steroids that cause the hens to grow larger and produce heftier eggs.

With commercial farming, they are looking to make a profit rather than making the healthiest product. Large producers like are focused on making their product at the cheapest price and to last on the shelves the longest.
This Diet should NOT be Used for Long Term
A diet of nothing but eggs and fruits is no way realistic way to live. Most diets that centrally focus on consuming one type of food are doomed to fail in the long run. The initial weight that people lose usually comes back and then some…

Why? When most people see the modest amount of weight they have lost, they will often binge and go overboard. After depriving yourself of normal foods for so long, do you think you will just have 1 slice of pizza? No, of course the weight will come back.

You are Allowed to Eat other Healthy Food Options
While eggs are a very nutrient dense food, they do not provide everything the human body needs (like fiber & vitamin C).
Feel free to replace fatty unhealthy protein sources with leaner ones like:
1.Fish (fatty fish like salmon & mackerel)
4.Seeds (chia, sunflower, & pumpkin seeds)

Replace sugary drinks and snacks with their fruit counterparts:
1.Berries (any kind like strawberry, blackberry, blueberries)
4.Fresh citrus (oranges & grapefruit)

Replace the starchier carbs with more fiber rich ones like:
1.Yams or Sweet Potatoes for Regular Potatoes
2.Quinoa or Beans for Rice
3.Spaghetti Squash or Zucchini for Regular Pasta
Problems with the Diet
1.There is an increased risk for heart failure and cardiovascular disease.

According to a study, there has been shown that people who consume too much eggs are at risk for cardiovascular events like stroke, heart attack, and high blood pressure. Even though eggs are considered healthy with a variety of nutrients, there is A LOT of cholesterol in an egg.
One egg a day actually reduces your over cardiovascular risk.

However eating up to half a dozen eggs a day is crazy and will cause your bad cholesterol to increase.
2.This Diet is completely unsustainable

As I said, who can eat one food all day every day? When your cravings for other foods happen, they will be out of control. Trust me.

Simple Ways to Prepare Eggs
Scrambled: Crack 2 eggs and mix them after removing the albumin (clear white part). While mixing add salt and pepper. In the skillet shallow-fry whatever veggies and lean meats (I like to use pepper, onions, tomatoes, and chicken sausage).
Once the veggies and meat are done, turn the heat down and slowly add the eggs.
Serve with whole g
rain toast for a great meal.
Hardboiled: In a large pot, boil a quart of water with a small amount of salt in it so that the eggs are just under the water. Bring to a boil for 5-8 minutes.
When done place 2-4 eggs in a bowl of cold water. This will make the eggs firmer and allow you to properly peel them.

I like to use hard boiled eggs as a protein boost to salads or vegetable dishes. They are also very good with just salt and pepper sprinkled on top.
