There is no doubt that egg is one of the best foods available. Egg diet has become more popular because some celebrities have used this diet and achieved good weight loss. In this diet you consume very little carbohydrates. Eggs, meat, cheese and other foods which are low of carbohydrates can be eaten generously. If you do not eat enough carbohydrates your body starts to use its fat reserves. The fat is converted back into glucose.

Body fluids are lost and the fats are not burnt completely if we avoid carbohydrates. Ketones are formed and it lowers appetite and may cause nausea.


• Two or more eggs, low carbohydrate vegetables (no root vegetables), grapefruit


• Eggs or fish or chicken without skin, salads and low carbohydrate vegetables


• Eggs or fish or chicken without skin, cottage cheese, salads and low carbohydrate vegetables. One orange

Two servings fruits are allowed in a day.

In the Egg and Grapefruits diet, half grapefruit is eaten with every meal. The crash version is only hard boiled eggs and water only.

No exercises are recommended with this diet.

The risk of egg diet include:

• Do not get all the necessary nutrients
• Low intake of carbohydrates means less energy for physical activities
• Fatigue and nausea are experienced in the beginning
• Can cause constipation, flatulence and bad breath
• High protein diets are usually high in saturated fat and low in fibre. This combination can raise cholesterol and the risk for heart disease and stroke
• Can increase the risk of kidney stones
• The body becomes acidic and more calcium is excreted from the body, thus a risk for osteoporosis

Egg is very healthy if we eat this with all the other foods. Only eggs or eggs with low carbohydrate vegetables are not healthy. You will put on the lost weight immediately when you start eating normal.

Consult with your doctor before starting the egg diet. This is an extreme diet and many cannot follow it continuously. Combine eggs with a normal food and it is possible to reduce and maintain weight without the above said risks. If you have questions feel free to ask me.
