    if a calorie deficit is your goal then why bother with the egg whites only? seems like a waste of the most delicious/nutritious part of the egg.

        Do you have knowledge about any diets for losing weight that don't have to create a calorie deficit???

        Please read my posting above and you will also see that it is one whole eggs + one extra eggwhite per 10 pound of bodyweight on this diet for four of the week days and half of that on the three other days + potatoes...

          What? I know he had a few egg diets for different purposes and that he cycled with a free meal that includes carbs every 72 hours or so, but anything similar to this???

            not really, but he was all about the two dozen egg a day diet. albeit, different... eggs and steak to your heart's content during the week, carb up on the weekends.

              I don't get why you don't just reach the same calories intake with different types of food.
              It's very close to my maintenance kcal and you can easily do very very very tasty meals with that kind of alotment.

                you're absolutely right, all of these one-item diets are ridiculous, be they potatoes or eggs. or whatever.

                  Yeah, at least the potato diet had some "magical" explanation to it and all, but here you get many types of macro nutrients.
                  Why don't you just eat fatty and protein items on the days you eat only eggs+egg whites and add the potatoes/veggies on the days you get carbs ?

                  Is it to make you feel like you're dieting, so it's hard work and stuff ?
                  Don't get it seriously.

                      Don't worry I do not take it serious at all! This is a FAD DIET, made up on eating of a relative large number of eggs - but less than in the video posted by Otzi! I do not have any illusion of creating a new way of sustainable eating.The "Raison d'Ítre" behind this diet is to try to get rid of 8-10 pound of stubborn bodyfat, and I am trying to achieve this by doing a boring but filling diet high in protein and fat to keep on to lean body mass and cycling inn carbs on three of the week days to fill up on glycogen. Yes it's a hybrid diet, but remember that the number of eggs are a maximum only, it is possible to eat less if the amount of eggs makes you fed up...

                        What??? The diet is not that "serious" but it's not a "joke" either! If it doesen't work, I will modificate along the road, but I intend to start out as outlined above. I love eggs though...

                          Yes I understand what you want to achieve, but it'll only be a result of your calorie intake and macro ratios.
                          And I was just saying that with the EXACT same ratio you could actually enjoy food better than that and still achieve your goal.

                            Of course, as every other diet known to mankind or do you know a diet that works independent of calorie intake?

                            Well, you are french and I guess you like to enjoy some tasty compound meals? The danger by that model is that it is more easy to overeat and there will be inherently more temptations in such a way of eating! A boring diet may work because there will be less risk of going astray by eating tasty dishes, and probably also less thinking about food...

                                My dad used to do an egg and laxative diet. He'd always lose a shitload of weight.
