I can’t believe that in all the years of my interest in low carb diets I have only recently heard about a form of low carb dieting called an egg fast? The basics of this egg diet for fast weight loss are just eggs, butter and cheese and it is designed to be eaten for just a few days. It is often used as a way out of a dieting stall or a way to get back on the wagon after a slip-up. Good idea or not I – I’m really not sure.
