Egg Fast

Have you ever heard of an egg fast? I had never heard of an egg fast until I stumbled upon I Breath . . . I’m Hungry and Ketogenic Women (actually I’ve visited Keto Women but didn’t know she tried the egg fast). I thought, hmmmm, this sounds interesting. You know me, I like to try new things. I love eggs, it’lll be a cheaper way for me to eat for five days.

All I need is eggs, butter/ghee, cream cheese, and other good fats like coconut oil, palm oil, cacao butter. No heavy whipping cream during the egg fast (next five days), I can handle that. I have cut back a lot on the HWC anyway since I’ve been having a Bulletproof Coffee every morning for the last three months.

My weigher is wonky, sometimes I weigh one thing but step on it again and weigh another. Lately since July I’ve been weighing between 140-142. Once in a while I’ll be at 138-139. But again, the 40’s has been my ‘lucky’ number (wink).
Egg Fast Week 1
Of course I’m tweaking the rules (which you can find following links above) instead of eating an egg for breakfast I’m having a bulletproof coffee. Updated on Day 2: I’m adding egg yolks to my coffee to get those morning eggs in.

I don’t count carbs in eggs.

I had too much fat. Tomorrow I’m going to add only add 1 tbl of each fat, coconut oil and butter.

Today I didn’t feel hungry at all. In fact at dinner time I wasn’t really hungry but I’m not suppose to go five hours without eating. The rules are to eat every 3 hours but don’t go without eating for five.
I’m amazed that I don’t get hungry. 9 eggs doesn’t sound like a lot but with all the good fats it’s so filling.

My snicker doodle crepes fell apart while cooking, hehe. I have since figured out how to keep them round which is don’t turn them over too soon.
Egg Fast Day 2
Day 3/Wednesday 138.6
Breakfast 7:30: Coffee-1tbl each, coconut oil and butter, 2 egg yolks, stevia
Snack: Salted Caramel Custard
Dinner: Swiss water decaf Bulletproof Coffee with 2 egg yolks, 1tbl each of coconut oil and kerrygold butter, 1tsp cinnamon.

Today I thought I’d eat less ‘sugar’ so I made the Buffalo Omelet and it was so good! I didn’t plan to have a BPC for supper at all. I was going to have some Snicker Doodle Crepes. I even had all the ingredients mixed from the day before. All I had to do was cook them up. With that said, I ended up babysitting a 10 month, 17 month, 5yr., 6yr, 8yr., 11yr, along with my 6 which made for a hectic evening, plus I had to get some of them ready for AWANA.

Needless to say I didn’t have time to fix up my crepes. I ended up throwing my ingredients into the Magic Bullet and taking that with me. I would have waited until after AWANA and made them but it would be too late. I am not suppose to eat three hours before bed. It worked out but I felt that I didn’t finish my day strong! Oh well, some days are like that.

I had planned to take Saturday off from the Egg Fast or do a half day. I did eat eggs for breakfast and lunch. My snack was a low carb coffee. A sugar free latte made with heavy cream. For supper my hubby took me out and we ate at a Mediterranean restaurant. I ate a leg of lamb for the first time and loaded up on the veggies.

Wow, I did it for a week. I didn’t lose much but that’s okay. I’m just happy to be under 140 again and all week too!

So how many eggs did I have this week? 64 eggs, 44 tablespoons butter, 4 8oz packs of cream cheese, and around 17-20 tablespoons of mayo.

Throughout the week I didn’t feel tired and I certainly didn’t feel deprived of food. I was never hungry.
