Months ago I explained to Dave that I regularly get questions on my Instagram asking me if I’ve ever tried an egg fast, and what my thoughts on egg fasts are. Dave had never heard of an egg fast before, and once I explained what it involved he became super curious and wanted to try it out for himself! Me on the other hand, not so much…
But… Dave ended up talking me into joining him. So… we tried an egg fast!
What is an egg fast?
An egg fast is a short-term, super restrictive diet that includes eating eggs, cheese, butter, or another fat source. It typically lasts 3 days (or up to 5 days MAX), and it may assist with short-term weight loss.
What do you eat and drink?
There are lots of different “rules” for following an egg fast, but here are the guidelines we followed:
Why haven’t I tried an egg fast before?
It is really important to me that I create a sustainable healthy lifestyle that I love and can stick with. That is how I’ve been able to lose the excess weight, get healthier, and keep the weight off! I do not believe in short-term fixes, because there is honestly no substitution for consistency! To me, an egg-fast sounded incredibly restrictive and…. kind of awful if I’m being honest. Who wants to eat only eggs for 3 days straight?!
Why do people follow an egg fast?
Egg fasts are typically used by people as a tool to overcome a weight loss plateau / weight loss stall, to help someone get back into ketosis quickly, or to kickstart someone’s keto journey after a holiday/break.
How did we find the egg fast?
You can watch our entire experience here on my YouTube Channel!
What are your tips for trying an egg fast?
Would you do an egg fast again?
I was really surprised that I found the egg fast as easy as I did. I expected to hate it! I had a lot more energy than I thought I would have, and was able to do my usual workouts with the energy I normally have!
I personally am really happy to have experienced an egg fast for myself, and can now understand why some people find egg fasts to be a helpful tool in their journey…. but for me, I’m really happy eating the normal keto food that I do! I missed veggies way too much!
Can I eat the egg fast recipes when I’m not doing an egg fast?
Absolutely you can! These recipes are super low in carbs, so if you are looking for some lower carb keto friendly options try some of the egg fast friendly recipes in your day-to-day life! I will definitely be including egg fast recipes in my regular routine because they are yummy!
Make sure you consult with your doctor before trying any restrictive diet.
