The egg diet is a fad diet that has been increasing in popularity recently, in part because of a smattering of reports about its effectiveness, and in large part because rumors have floated around that several well known celebrities have lost a lot of weight thanks to this diet. The one problem with trying to follow the egg diet is that there are several different variations of it floating around online, meaning not every specific meal plan for the egg diet will be the same from source to source. Still, if you want to learn how to lose weight on the egg diet, read on!
Things You'll Need
- Eggs w/ every meal
- A reasonably balanced meal around the eggs
No matter what version of the egg diet you're on to lose weight, always start breakfast with several eggs, absolute minimum of two, along with grapefruit, a low carb veggie, or else another lean protein of some type. Most versions of the egg diet are an Atkins-type low carb diet, but with an emphasis on eggs for protein instead of meat.
For lunch you want another serving of eggs with some more lean protein and some low carb veggies. Fruit is okay in limited quantities, but you don't want too much.
Dinner is similar to lunch, with either eggs or a lean protein, salad, and low carb veggies. Avoid the normal high carbohydrate foods.
There's a variation of this diet called the "Egg & Grapefruit Diet" which is the same as described, but with half a grapefruit at every meal.
Continue as needed for optimal weight loss, and once you hit your goal weight, continue on a diet plan that has a little more variety, especially with more fruits to reintroduce healthy carbs.
