    isn't it amazing when you find a way of eating that enables the weight to drop right off and doesn't kill you to do it
    When I'd had enough of the grain and starched based 'diabetic eating for health' diet (eating for health, my ass!) my weight was 242.5 lbs. On starting primal- 18th April 2013 weight : 238.1.
    27th July 2013. weight after 100 days 136.9 weight lost 101.2lb ; that's 105.6lbs since I stopped the 'diabetic eating for health'

    Yep, if you are going to pick a mono food diet, you could definitely do worse than eggs (cabbage soup and the spudfest come to mind). At least the eggs are giving you a very complete source of protein and fat.

    I am interested to see your progress. Keep posting, please.

    You're eating between 800 and 1400 calories (depending on egg size). Not that surprising that your losing weight.

    Have you tried following the primal blueprint as it's written to see what results you get? Rather than essentially crash dieting (albeit getting all that eggy goodness, so I guess there are worse ways if your going to do it) until you're "finished" and then switching to primal.
    If you're interested in my (very) occasional updates on how I'm working out and what I'm eating click here.

    From reading her post I get the idea that she is doing this as a kind of "induction" and to break old patterns of sweets/carb cravings.
    I can see the benefit in that.

    Also, it sounds like an easy way to not stress on what to eat.

    I love eggs and could totally do that if I could throw in a few bananas. Good luck to you, OP!

    You should grab some olive oil and try making some homemade mayonnaise for some egg salad/deviled eggs. Check the recipe forum or even do a simple google search, there are an endless number of recipes out there.

    I think she has a great plan. Imagine how AMAZING primal food is going to taste after having only eggs for an extended period of time. It should make staying primal much easier.
    The above should be viewed as complete and utter nonsense.

    Tried quoting Paleobird's post, but for some reason when I hit the quote button it was actually showing a completely random post about almond bars by another poster! Bizarre.

    Re: using a mono-food diet as a way to break bad habits etc. That's a fair point, we all need to find our own way whether it's like this, going cild turkey 100% strict paleo, paleo Mon-Fri and treat yourself on weekends, etc.

    I guess the main point of my comment was around the OP's caloric intake from eating only 12 or so eggs per day.

    The Cabbage Soup Diet ... *eye twitches*

    In all seriousness, I find this whole "Egg Diet" approach interesting. Not something I can see myself doing, but it's an interesting experiment.

    I can see doing it as sort of a one week "reset" plan perhaps if you had let things wander too far from Primal basics.
