    Meat And Egg Fast??

    Hello I was doing some digging in another forum website and came
    across a meat and egg fast diet for those who hit a point where they
    are stuck? It looks to me for 7 day's you eat eggs and meat no cheese
    diet sodas accondiments veggies or fruits, well anyway there were a ton
    of people saying they were losing anywhere form 5-13 lbs in 1 week
    then hopping back on their regular diet and still kept losing but not as
    much a week, but it gave them a re/kickstart? I was gonna keep it in
    the back of my mind for when my weight quits ?
    What's everyones opion on this fast? Tammy

    it seems to be popular among stalled Low Carbers... but i doubt it would do much if you aren't on a low carb diet (which id on't think are a wise way to go anyhow - it's not a lifestyle choice.. and any diet that eliminates food groups isn't healthy long term.. no matter what the dead doctor claims

    Anything where you have to cut out whole groups of food is generally bad, imho

    Hi Niapage

    In response to your question, and the previous replies, low carb diets do not exclude whole foods groups. It's a matter of finding your own level of carbohydrate intake that precludes you gaining weight. The meat and eggs might be helpful in the short term, to 'restart' your weight loss.

    You can eat fruit and low carb, recommended fruits are small berries, e.g. blueberries, blackberries, bilberries, raspberries, strawberries, etc. They are lower in carbs than most other fruits, and very good antioxidants as well. Basically, stay away from high sugar fruits, and the greener your vegetables, the better. There is no such thing as a 'carbohydrate free' diet, as all foods contain carbs, even if only a trace.

    As maligned as he was, remember that Atkins was first and foremost a practicising cardiologist, so had much direct experience of the overweight/obese, and knew what it was like to be overweight himself.

    I suggest you read the book, and other writings on cardiology and weight, do a web search to get broader opinions, then judge. The book is hard going at first, as it's more of an exercise in cardiology until you get to the diet bits. The case histories are interesting, and inspiring, however.

    I think that the main thing with any plateau phase is not to slip back. Remember you're already slimmer than you were before! Good luck!

    After reading maleficent's posts on carbs/protein/fats, it's hard to imagine cutting down on any of the 3.

    My mother goes to weight watchers, and related this experience to me. There was a member in the group who was absolutely stuck. She was asked to write all the foods she was eating. I forgot what she was lacking, but when she added it back into her diet, she started to lose weight again.

    On the other hand, you probably couldn't do a lot of harm by doing something for only 7 days.

    It's an adaptation of the Atkins diet(by the way he died of heart failure.) The first stage of the Atkins is mostly meat, eggs, cheeses. It will really strip the weight off. I was on that stage before and lost a bunch though it quickly came back.

    it's really phase 1 of atkins... or a modification thereof... as has been said- one week won't kill anyone but - i prefer balance...

    sumner, I think one of the biggest misconceptions about atkins is that you can have 2 pounds of bacon every day and still lose weight... most people don't read the book and really put their health at risk.. I've read the book, and prefer balance in my diet... I don't like sugar and am switching over to whole grains from white flour products... but phase oneof atkins where youc an't have fruit is just too severe for my tastes...

    hiya,
    It is much the same as doing the induction of atkins you will lose weight quickly but you will also gain it back (and then some) quickly! I'm a low carb veteran and in the past lost a lot of weight on atkins, unfortunately it all came back and now I'm just exercising and trying to watch what I eat (most of the time).
    The best thing is to take it slow and remember the slower you lose it the slower it comes back, I can eat the occassional chocolate bar (or block of chocolate for that matter) and not gain a thing while in the past had I done that on atkins I would not have been a very happy chappy.
    But as with all things the choice is yours just don't say I didn't warn you

    Thanks

    Hello everyone,
    I totally agree with you can't totally cut out
    a certain food group but from the looks of phase1 It looks like
    you have veggies meats and a little carbs. I am happy with what
    I am doing now which is watching my calories and fat but I must
    admit I do feel hungry after hours when your not suppose to eat!

    Thats why it crossed my mind drop some weight and feel full but
    of course healthy is always ontop of my list! I can's see eating a
    lb-2lbs of bacon or any meat at that but unlimited baked chciken
    breast some cheese I can go for that lol! Thanks I am sticking to
    the calorie thing for now! Tammy

    Low Fat Foods DON'T WORK

    You cannot lose weight using Low Fat Diets. Low fat foods have been popular for more than 15 years, but yet our society is getting more overweight as each year passes. This fact alone should tell you that eating a purely low fat menu is not the answer to losing weight.

    Thank you but I have been doing low calorie/low fat/ sice
    the middle of April and lost 60 lbs and went from a size 22
    to a 13/14 and some 15's lol! So yes it does work I am starting
    to think low carb or no carbs diet fail because you feel ran down
    and tired if you don't get enough ''good' carbs I tried ADKINS a long
    time ago and I actually missed the good carbs such as heathy treats
    and apples bannanahs wheat bread for sandwhichs any lean cuisine
    meals ect you can't have on ADKINS and that caused me to fail.On
    a 1200 calorie diet they pretty much have everything I like just a
    healthy version of it!
    Thanks for your opinion but so far low calorie-fat dieting is working
    just worrying about the plateau what to do?TAMMY

    Personally I think this diet is very bad.

    1. It's horrible on your colon. You need fiber.

    2. It's horrible on your kidneys, first from the byproducts of using protein as the primary fuel, but also from the byproducts of all the meat being re-absorbed into your body through your colon walls.

    3. When you are that starved for carbohydrates, your muscles can do the same thing as if you were protein deficient, in that your body can break down lesser used muscles in your body to get what it needs to rebuild. So yes, you can lose muscle.

    4. Can you say "cholesterol"?

    "Some" is much different than "nothing but".
