Can You Lose Weight With Egg Fasting?


Can You Lose Weight With Egg Fasting?

I have been going crazy since a few days, my weight has stalled again, ooh yeah again 🙁

So I was looking for a stall breaker. Those who are knew to FitnessVsWeightLoss, a stall breaker is a short term diet plan which lasts just for a few days say 2-3 days or max a week. These are special diets which push your weight down if you are stuck for a long time. But these are not sustainable for a long period of time. Either these diets will be crash diets(extremely low calorie) , extremely low carb(net carbs under 20 grams) or these will devoid you of a lot of foods, so you won’t be able to hang on for long !

One of the known stall breaker is Egg Fasting. In this fasting, you can have only 4 things –

1. Eggs
2. Butter/Coconut oil/Ghee – used in egg dishes. You can have butter stick standalone too.
3. Cheese – used in egg dishes or standalone.
4. BPC

I have not added mayonnaise in this list since the mayonnaise that we get in the market has a lot of carbs in it. Here is the recipe of homemade mayyo that you can safely use.

How to do Egg fasting ?

I started Egg fasting yesterday, I have eating, walking and talking eggs – Eggstacy, Eggsauhsting , Eggxample,Eggcetra, Eggscuse me please 😀 . You must eat eggs all the time as main source of fat and protein.There is no limit to eating eggs. Before starting this egg fasting, I thought I will be able to have 12-14 eggs a day but I crashed at 8 eggs yesterday. And I had to literally push down last 2 eggs down my throat ! Some people feel satiated with 4-5 eggs a day. One of my HE friend said he had 13 eggs a day on Egg fasting. So, you can have 6-15 eggs a day. As per my experience, 8-12 eggs a day is a good number for females.

Now some rules for Egg Fasting

  • 1 tablespoon of butter for every egg you eat. If you are making omelettes, use butter to cook. If you go with boiled eggs, have them with a dash of butter.

  • When you wake up in the morning, have an egg within half an hour.

  • Have an egg every 3-5 hours even if you are not hungry. You must not exceed 5 hours.

  • 1 ounce cheese per egg is allowed. Please note that you can’t have cheese spreads which have sugar/carbs added for flavour. I use Birtannia or Milky Mist cheese cubes/slices.

  • Organic eggs are preferred since they are full of omega 3 fats and vitamin D.

  • Have your last egg 2-3 hours before you sleep.

  • Drink a lot of water, atleast 8-10 glasses. I consumed 4-5 litres of water yesterday.

  • If you have to have a drink, have 1 diet coke/pepsi in 3 days of egg fasting. Or squeeze a lemon in cold water, so refreshing it is !

Can You Lose Weight With Egg Fasting?

I think yes. I am 600 grams down since yesterday. Egg fasting is definitely a stall breaker. But it causes weight loss on a long term or not , it is too early to say, since I am done with just Day 1. I will do egg fasting off and on next month and keep you posted if it works wonders 🙂

P.S – Excuse the pic quality, I clicked this in office when I hit this wonderful idea of clicking my lunch box 😀 . By the way, I love cheesy omelettes 😀


  1. Looks easy and interesting Tarun but the only thing I wonder is if it will be all right to have so many eggs with so much cheese for cholesterol levels especially if you are thyroid sensitive too. Generally thyroid cases are high cholesterol borderline cases. !!! I can’t have so much fat and cholesterol in a day as start getting heart palpitations… Still looking forward to good results for you. Stay cautious.

  2. Dear Kanan

    Don’t know about throwing the thyroid into the mix, but in general without the carbs to hold onto the cholesterol, it passes harmlessly through the body. I’ve tested on and off this woe a couple times, my trigylicerides go down a lot, my ldl goes down a little (despite a SERIOUS bacon habit) and my hdl goes up. The over all number is always down a bit and the ratios are much, much better.

  3. I have no thyroid having had cancer 6years ago. My cholesterol levels are always low even though I eat eggs and cheese freely. I am on levothyroxine.

  4. Kanan, eating cholesterol does not increase cholesterol in the body. Instead, when you eat cholesterol, liver stops producing it. Check the post here –

    And here are 2 researches – ,

    You feel palpitations because of some other reason, not because you are overdoing cholesterol. My mom feels the same because of her high BP, not sure the reason for you.

  5. hey thanks Vini 🙂 . I am just trying to pass correct information to people, what works and what does not 🙂

  6. That was my personal experience — beyond all scientific research. I am happy with 6 eggs max but combining it with cheese makes me uncomfortable and yes that BPC — after having that I could hear my heart beat outside my body an dfelt as if there was a heart beat skip here and there. Breathing too was troubled—- I had tried to follow LCHF twice but didn’t continue because of that sinking feeling in the heart. May be that woe didn’t suit me. 🙁 just too bad.

  7. Tarun.. an eye-opener….
    For how long to follow this diet…. does one’s weight yoyo when U fall out of this diet… after a few days…
