My bathroom scale hates me! HATES ME!
Potentially, it was just the wake up call of utter shock and horror that I needed to get by fat butt back in gear!
And it starts today, right now, right this second! I have a plan and I won’t be derailed! I have to do something, I promised myself I would never go back. And I’m not, I won’t. I can’t. Not for the sake of my health, not for the sake of my well being.
So, the plan….
Disclaimer – Before I share my plan, I just want to make it clear to all of you that I am not a nutritionist or doctor and this is in no way meant to be dietary advice to anyone. It is purely based on my own experience after 3 years of following the banting/low carb high fat lifestyle and learning what works for me.
A 4 Day Egg Fast
If you’re following the LCHF lifestyle, then you’ll know that egg fasts are a great way of kick starting weight loss and getting back into fat burning mode or ketosis by eating an extremely low carb, high fat, moderate protein diet for a short period of time
Basically on an egg fast you are consuming eggs, butter (or other pure and healthy fat like olive oil or coconut oil), and cheese, with a few exceptions for low carb condiments like hot sauce, mustard, etc. The egg fast ratio is to eat 1 Tbsp fat for each egg consumed and up to 1 oz cheese for each egg consumed.
So I started this morning with scrambled eggs made with cream and cheese. I have boiled eggs and may for lunch and I’ll be eating a 3 cheese omelette for supper. Rinse & repeat for 4 days and I’m hoping to shed in the region of 4kg’s by Saturday morning when I break the egg fast.
But… No WINE!
Gah! I’ll let you know how that goes.
