    Don't worry about that Dirlot! And that goes to everybody else that worries about the same: Unfortunately I cannot buy egg whites in carton here where I live, but the maid that work in my kitchen to separate the eggs, will use the egg yolks to make some very delicious mayonnaise. I give this mayonnaise to my family and friends so they can put it on their French fries and continue to live the kind of life they want to live!

    That is just too many eggs for me. Plus not enough other stuff mixed in. But give it a go and let us know how long you can do it.

    Also, I agree that it's a shame to throw out the egg yolks, even if you are giving them to someone else. That's the best part of the egg.

    This egg diet will be for maximum 4 weeks, and is not meant to be a long term solution. If you should dare try the diet some day, it would be 13 eggs and 13 egg whites for you, since you are at 133 lb bodyweight according to your information. I am cycling the eggs with potatoes, and that gives fibers and carbs on three of the week days, and will make sure that I am not entering deep ketosis.

    It's a local problem that I have, since I cannot buy egg whites only here. This is not a problem for people living in the USA or in most places in Europe I guess?

    I think I would rather just eat 13 eggs period, or even shoot for 26 whole eggs than bother with egg whites.

    By doing that you will be spinning your wheels by going too high on energy intake, and unfortunately lose the benefits of the calorie deficit from the diet...

    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???
