My Egg Diet can be particularly effective for weight loss. Calories tend to be lower eating eggs, compared to eating dead animals on a low carb diet. Fat intake tends to be higher, so you’re less hungry. Carbohydrate intake tends to be lower, 5-10 grams per feeding, which is in the acceptable range for rapid weight loss that limits fat storage. Protein intake tend to be lower too, so you don’t get as many sweet and starch cravings from gluconeogenesis – Google it. Most patients eat one or two meals a day. Each meal consists of a 3 or 4 egg omelet, cooked in 1-2 ounces of butter, with onions, tomatoes, spinach, mushrooms, ham, cheese, etc. Limit your ham intake to 3-4 ounces per omelet, to keep your protein intake within reason, to limit carbohydrate cravings. Keep your cheese take to 2 slices per omelet, to keep calories under control. For most patients, this is a 1000-1200 calorie diet – very filling, and without carbohydrate cravings, good for 3-5 pounds a week.
