Egg diet and is a variant of the Atkins diet which allows you to eat unlimited amounts of eggs, meat, and fat. Like the Atkins diet, the egg diet is a high-protein, low-carbohydrate diet.

This diet is one of the healthiest ways to consume a low carbohydrate diet without increasing saturated fats. Eggs are an excellent source of protein and other vital nutrients. They contain all the essential amino acids in the correct proportions and are therefore a good source of complete protein. They are also a significant source of vitamins B2, B12, D, E, and folate, in addition to iron.

The digestive system is unable to produce enough glucose for your body to burn when high-protein, low-carbohydrate foods are consumed. Therefore, the body has no choice but to convert the fat stored in your body into glucose. The main idea is that the amount of food isn’t all that important as long as the total grams of carbohydrate are kept down. You need to reduce your carbohydrate intake to practically nothing but not necessarily reduce fat and calorie intake. Thus egg diet works by nutritional fasting as we starve ourselves of the fat fuel. 

4-week long egg diet

The secret of effect of eggs lies in the fact that on consuming eggs, quick saturation occurs and the feeling of hunger does not appear for a long time. Weigh yourself in the beginning of this diet schedule and then at the end of four weeks. You will observe a weight loss ranging between 20-28 kg.

This diet is suitable for all ages, and there is no necessity to take any additional vitamins. It is mandatory to strictly follow the given schedule with same products and quantity, and not to change a dinner with a supper.

Some more facts about egg diet

Eating nothing but eggs isn't a healthy way to lose weight. A starvation diet is not worthy enough if you realize the long term damages it does to your body. Most nutritionists and experts recommend that losing 1-2 pounds per week is the healthiest way of loosing weight.

Eating eggs in excess causes constipation and gas. High protein diet can also be hard on the kidneys. Eliminating carbohydrates, while consuming a high protein diet, causes dehydration and prevents the body from completely burning fat. This results in production of ketone bodies. Ketosis makes dieting easier because it lowers appetite and may cause nausea.

The healthiest way to lose weight is to eat less, exercise, and eat foods that include maximum nutrition in the fewest calories. Eggs consumed in moderation are a healthy addition to a well-rounded diet, but eating eggs only will lead you into nothing but trouble.
