Day 2 of my 5-day egg fast started early! I woke up several time overnight with a full bladder, and by 5 am, I was wide awake. Not my preferred way to start the day.
Anytime I cut carbs this low, my body seems to expel every ounce of water it’s holding. That’s a good thing, getting rid of excess water weight, but not so great in the middle of the night.
BUT! With this mass flushing (pun intended), I was down 1.4 pounds from yesterday. Obviously, it’s water weight, but it’s water weight that needs to come off anyway. We will see what tomorrow morning brings on the scale ?
In the meantime, here are my weight stats and my food for the day!
Starting Weight: 147.8
After Day 1: 146.4
Today was a big repeat for breakfast which consisted of Egg Coffee and Scrambled Eggs. The slight variation from yesterday was that I added a few drops of stevia to my coffee.
I discuss how to make an Egg Fast Iced coffee on Day 1, so make sure to check that out!
2 Eggs scrambled in 1 Tbsp Butter
Coffee with 1 Egg, 1 Tbsp Butter, and 1 Tbsp Coconut Oil
Total for breakfast: 3 Eggs, 3 Fats, 0 Cheese
Like breakfast, lunch was a repeat from yesterday with deviled eggs. My husband happened to snag one of my deviled eggs after work yesterday, so I had to make more.
Luckily with the epic fail of fried hard-boiled eggs last night, I had plenty of hard-boiled eggs left over to make more deviled eggs. I even made hubby a few of his own to keep him out of my lunch!
I have enough devilled eggs left for one meal, and that will be all of those this week. I can’t handle peeling more eggs at this point in my life.
Shameless pleading, one last time…If you have any tips for peeling eggs, PLEASE COMMENT BELOW! Seriously, I need help!
I found myself with a wicked bad sweet craving after lunch today. I usually have a square of dark chocolate after lunch, and I was really missing that today. I was wondering at this point if the stevia-sweetened coffee was a bad idea?
It’s possible the sweet taste at breakfast kicked in a sweet craving. It’s probably against the rules, but I did chew a piece of sugar-free gum to get through the craving. It worked!
Total for lunch: 3 eggs, 3 fats, 0 Cheese
I couldn’t stand waiting any longer! I made the Egg Fast Fettuccine Alfredo for dinner tonight. It’s just SO DARN GOOD!! But with it, I broke down and added cheese to my day.
Seriously, if you haven’t tried the egg fast fettuccine alfredo from I Breathe I’m Hungry, you are missing out!
Total for dinner: 2 eggs, 1 fat, 2 Cheese
Well, after I folded and added cheese to the egg fast menu, nothing was stopping me from enjoying an Egg Fast Shake! Call it a snack…call it dessert…either way, I can pretend it’s a milkshake because it honestly tastes just like one!
¼ cup of cold water
1 squirt of vanilla crème stevia
2 raw eggs
2 oz cream cheese
2 tbsp coconut oil (melted)
Mix in blender.
Total for snack: 2 eggs, 2 fats, 2 Cheese
Totals for the Day
10 eggs, 9 fats, 3 cheeses
