5 Day Egg Fast – The Keto Guy
Hey guys, I started the keto diet the Monday after thanksgiving. I had gotten up to 430 pounds and knew I wasn’t going to be around for my family if this lifestyle continued. I committed myself to this new lifestyle harder than anything in the past. I knew it would take big losses and aggressive goals to stay motivated. So my goal was to lose 100 pounds in 3 months and 150 pounds in 6 months… well on Feb 28th i was exactly 100 pounds down after 3 months. Now 5 months later I am 131 pounds down after this egg fast. I have 1 more month to go. My 6 month goal date falls on Memorial Day.
Check out how the egg fast went:
Egg Fast Day 1: This isn’t so bad… who doesn’t love scrambled eggs? I feel good and am looking forward to the week!
Egg Fast Day 2: Still a little sick but the egg fast is going great! Fried eggs in the morning, some egg salad, capped off with some deviled eggs for dinner!
Egg Fast Day 3: Still going strong. Fried eggs for breakfast was a struggle… lunch was again egg salad. And I made a cheese omelette for dinner. Feeling ok. No noticeable changes in appetite or energy.
Egg Fast Day 4: I can’t bring myself to eat another darn fried egg, so cheese omelette for breakfast! Lunch is egg salad…. again… whew. Dinner is more deviled eggs with a little cheese. Feeling a lack of energy in the gym. Possibly from low protein?
Egg Fast Day 5: Hardest morning by far. Absolutely nothing sounds good. Go with an omelette and use cholula to help choke it down… here comes lunch…. egg salad!… AGAIN! Followed up with deviled eggs for dinner. Not because they sounded good but because I am so sick of eggs at this point the thought of cooking another one is off the table.
This diet has changed my life. I have gone 5 months without a single cheat meal and have none planned. I started an Instagram Page and YouTube Channel to share my experiences and help inspire people to improve their lives. I know watching others has helped inspire me. I appreciate everyone who has taken the time to check it out and I am always available for questions about the diet. I do have several videos on my YouTube detailing how I approach the diet and my recommendations for people just starting out. So check it out and let me know what you think.
