December 9, 2017 – Egg Fast Day 6

Breakfast:

A switch-up with the BulletProof Coffee this morning, I added some Pumpkin Spice syrup that came in my new Keto Krate.  There wasn’t quite enough in the two packets to overpower the bitterness of the coffee (since I usually use 1-2T and each packet was 1t).  I did also add a little vanilla and it was quite good.  I’m looking forward to trying the little sweetener packets that came in it as well.

  

 

Lunch:

I ended up running baking shows in the background today so was craving something sweet, so I made another batch of Cream Cheese Pancakes.  They were again delicious with the new syrup.  The cheese content was actually a bit low as one big clump, of about 1T didn’t mix in.

  

 

Dinner:

I was also having a bit of a pizza craving so I had the next best thing, some baked cheese slices dipped in Ranch dressing.  A favorite snack anytime.

  

 

Summary:

I was a bit cheese-heavy today and too low on my eggs.  I only had two eggs and about 3T of cheese.  My fats were highest, with 4-5 tbsp between all the meals (Ranch is mayo based which makes it count as a fat).  I’d forgotten when I made the cheese chips that there was cheese in the pancakes as well or I’d have eaten an additional hard-boiled egg or two as well.

  

December 8, 2017 – Egg Fast Day 5

Breakfast:

And again, BulletProof Coffee for breakfast.  I don’t really get tired of starting my day with BPC because I have a nice variety of Torani Sugar Free syrups that I can flavor it with.  These really help if feel like a different drink each day while acting essentially as a meal replacement.  I do sometimes make a BulletProof Tea to switch things up though.

  

 

Lunch:

Today was my other day to go into the office this week so lunch was essentially a repeat of Monday’s as egg salad is the easiest thing to make ahead of time and take in with me (especially since eggs are hard to heat).  I had already baked the cheese chips on Sunday with the others so I threw those in as well.  I probably shouldn’t have had the Bai Coconut Water; it only comes to 2g net carbs for the bottle but has several grams of sugar alcohols, which I am supposed to be limiting during the Egg Fast as well.

  

 

Dinner:

I’m pleased with having lasted so long on the Egg Fast but am starting to get to the point where nothing sounds appetizing.  I had taken the two cheese sticks to work with me in case I needed a snack, so I just warmed a hard-boiled egg in a hot water bath and at it with those.  I thought of deviled eggs while writing this so I may have those tomorrow.

  

 

Summary:

I did better today; I know on some previous days I’ve definitely not been having as much as I should.  Being in the office and moving around more helped I think.  Altogether I had 4 eggs and 4oz of cheese.  I also had 4-5 tbsp of fats between the BPC and the mayo in the egg salad.

  

December 7, 2017 – Egg Fast Day 4

Breakfast:

No surprise, BulletProof Coffee to start the day.  It has 2T of fats, which makes it quite filling.  Depending on how it’s sweetened, it’s also usually only 0-2 grams of carbs.

  

 

 

Dinner:

I had a dentist appointment right after work so I didn’t have my second meal until late.  With the cold blast finally hitting Texas, I decided soup would hit the spot.  I’d had this Egg Drop Soup recipe during a prior egg fast and it’s quite good.  I decided to add a third egg, which turned out to be too much for the amount of liquid.  I also didn’t keep stirring it as the egg solidified so it got a bit clumpy in the center.  It ended up to be more like eating Chinese flavored runny eggs but wasn’t so bad I couldn’t eat it.

  

 

Summary:

I had originally intended to also have some cheese after but since I ate so late, I wasn’t hungry afterward.  As such, I had 3 eggs and no cheese.  I had at least 3T of fat but am not sure if there was any additional fats in the soup broth.

  

December 6, 2017 – Egg Fast Day 3

Breakfast:

BulletProof coffee again of course.  It’s always a good, filling way to start the day, especially now that it’s colder out.

  

 

Lunch:

For lunch today, I went with Cream Cheese Pancakes.  These are one of my favorite egg fast recipes, especially now that I’ve found a really good, thick sugar free syrup to go with them.  They’re also really easy to make.

  

 

Dinner:

As a counter to the sweet lunch I had a couple of over-well eggs, lightly salted.  With it, a couple of pieces of cheese.

  

 

Summary:

Again, carbs are super low due to following the egg fast.  In all, I had 4 eggs and 4oz of cheese.  With that 3-4 tbsp of fats, mostly in the BPC but also when cooking the other two meals.

  

December 5, 2017 – Egg Fast Day 2

Breakfast:

Again starting with BulletProof coffee as a way to get in some fats; that’s usually the department I struggle the most in.

  

 

Lunch:

After I got off work I still wasn’t really hungry so this was really more of a dinner.  I took two hard-boiled eggs and sliced them before frying them in some butter.  It’s actually a pretty tasty way to have eggs.  I also had two types of cheese, just over an oz of each.  After this I hard-boiled some more eggs and did eat one of those plain while it was still warm.

  

 

Summary:

I definitely didn’t eat enough today and expected I’d be hungrier but I wasn’t.  I had three eggs and probably about 3 oz of cheese.  I had at least 2T of fats from the BPC and one or two from the butter I cooked the eggs in.

  

December 4, 2017 – Egg Fast Day 1

Breakfast:

After falling off the wagon over Thanksgiving I decided to do an egg fast to reset myself.  I’m going to try to do the full week but we’ll see how it goes.

I started the day with a BulletProof coffee, with plenty of filling fats to tide me over.  I came into work early and nursed it through the morning.

  

 

Lunch:

Well into the afternoon I had time for lunch and had an egg salad along with some baked cheese chips.  This was two eggs with mayo and cheese and 2 slices of cheese along with a Powerade Zero.

  

 

Snack:

I got home early, after a stop at the dentist to reapply a temporary crown.  I decided to stick with soft foods, finishing some egg drop soup I’d ordered a couple of days ago and having a couple of cheese sticks.

    

 

Dinner:

Later in the evening I was feeling hungry again and went ahead and scrambled some eggs with some butter and topped with cheese.  I also had a flavored water, slightly sweetened.

  

 

Summary:

Altogether today, I had 5 eggs and 5 oz of cheese.  I also had about 5oz or Tbs of butter so I was mostly on par with the egg fast plan.  I had a total of 5 carbs, mostly from the egg drop soup as it was restaurant bought and not homemade.
