Jaw. On. Floor.
20 pounds in 20 days!!
*trundles off to find herself a few dozen eggs*
I have the simplest tastes. I am always satisfied with the best.
Now the question is: will the weight loss be sustainable or will it creep back on once you start eating regular, non junk food?
Keep us updated!
I am shocked too! Especially with the sugar day! Thank you for following and encouraging!

However if it is just a water bounce back and I can continue losing in a healthy primal way I still think it all would have been worth it. Also I was wear my size 12 dresses in the beginning and now I am back in my 8's. I went down a pants size too. I am going to continue updating for at least a month after the experiment is over so you all can see the after story and the longer term results.

Of all the mono-food hacks around here, this one seems like it would be the easiest to follow. Nothing to weigh and measure. Plus it covers the nutritional bases better.
I can see the steakaneggz thing working well for the heavy lifting dude-bros that are looking to put on mass but the protein levels in this are just fine for normal people. Potatoes (no matter how much Otzi tries to tell you about their "complete" protein) just don't have enough protein to prevent muscle catabolism.
I didn't even think about losing muscle....I certainly hope I am not, I have been lifting weights and eating when I am hungry....so info though. I only eat steak about once a month...so I could never do that and potatoes would be way to many carbs for me....I don't think I would stick with it.

I don't think the lifting you are doing is a problem at all. I'm talking about the really heavy duty power lifting stuff.

Speaking of 'complete protein', I was just thinking today about when I read 'Diet for a Small Planet' way back in the day. As I remember, she compared vegetarian combinations to the 'complete' protein of eggs, to see if they were nutritionally sound.

Great job, EggGirl. I might try a day or two worth of this and see how it goes from there. I could use a little kickstart.
